History Committee Aims to Celebrate Presbyterians

o celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017, the Committee on History is preparing a book on Presbyterians whose lives and work have been significant in some way.

“This book will recognize the work of people within the Presbyterian Church in Canada over the past 150 years either for faithful service, a specific accomplishment, a lifetime of achievement, or a person that was an inspiration to you,” the committee said in a news release.

Submissions should be in the form of a 150-word profile, including the person’s full name, the church with which they were involved, the town or city in which they lived, and what they accomplished or how they served. Photographs are also appreciated.

The deadline for submissions is October 31, 2017. Entries can be sent to Marilyn Repchuck, convener of the committee, by email at mrepchuck@gmail.com or through the mail to 43-566 Southridge Drive, Hamilton, ON  L9C 7W5.
