—Psalm 32:11a (The Message)
The time has come for us to CELEBRATE! We were disappointed that the Women’s Gathering 2020 had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. After enduring for more than a year and we are confident that the next Women’s Gathering can be held on May 21–22, 2022, at the Sheraton Parkway Hotel in Richmond Hill, Ontario. We will come together to celebrate and praise God for being with us throughout the pandemic, granting us strength and hope, and for teaching us to give thanks in all circumstances!
CELEBRATE—that is the theme for the next National Presbyterian Women’s Gathering, and the reason is very clear why.
I hope you are as excited as I am. There is much being prepared with keynote speakers like Susan Aglukark, the Rev. Anna Carter Florence, Jennifer Henry, and the Rev. Amanda Currie. There will also be a variety of workshops to choose from. Above all, we will worship and praise, with special guests and everyone gathered!
At last, we can come together and enjoy each other’s company without having to social distance—we can be ourselves once again and greet one another with our “normal” Christian love and fellowship! Come and sing! Come and celebrate! The WMS Council Executive invites you to mark your calendars now and save the date! Information/registration booklets will be sent out this September.
