Gatherings for Retired Ministry Personnel

An Invitation to Retired Ministry Personnel!

The gathering of Retired Ministry Personnel scheduled for March 3 has been postponed due to the recent passing of Rev. Don Robertson's wife, Sandy. A new date will be announced in the future.

Connect and Reflect

Many of you will have seen the article by Rev. Don Robertson that recently appeared in the Pacific Mountain Regional Council's  2021 Pension and Benefits Christmas Newsletter.

In the article, Don proposed the idea of calling a gathering of retired ministry personnel to connect and reflect upon common questions, such as:

  • Do our years of experience count for something in the context of today’s church?
  • What of wisdom in these ‘elder’ years?’
  • Are we a bridge into history from which we all learn and are tutored?
  • Do we have a role to play vis-a-vis the Region, its ministries and challenges?
  • And what of our relationship with each other, connections for some that are rooted in decades of ministry but too often lost to the present?

Don Robertson (retired United Church Minister) and Marc Coulombe (PMRC Regional Minister and Ministry Personnel Support Team member) are pleased to invite you to join in this first conversation! This will be the first gathering of its kind, and we’re excited about the possibilities that may emerge.

Looking forward to seeing you!!

Warmest blessings,

Rev. Don Robertson and Marc Coulombe
