It is with regret that the Bishop has accepted the resignation of Cindy Derrenbacker as Child and Youth Ministry Facilitator for the Sudbury-Manitoulin Deanery. She leaves this post after nearly two years in order to take up an appointment as librarian for Laurentian University’s new School of Architecture.
We are grateful for Cindy’s creative and capable contribution to nurturing the Christian faith of children and youth, and we are pleased that she intends to stay active in some of the deanery youth initiatives. Jay Koyle, with whom the diocesan Facilitators work, has said that Cindy’s ‘deep faith, keen insight and tremendous energy have fostered a great deal of progress in this area of the church’s mission in Algoma’.
Cindy’s role will come to an end as of 30 September and the deanery will advertise for a replacement shortly.
