We are saddened to announce the death of the Rev. Capt. Henk Willems (Elliot Lake, Massey, Sagamok) on Friday, October 29, 2021 at the St. Joseph’s General Hospital in Elliot Lake following a brief illness.  His wife, the Rev. Beth Topps Willems, and his children were by his side.

We offer our condolences to the entire Willems family and the families of his parishes and uplift them in prayer as they mourn the loss of Henk.  We also remember Henk’s colleagues in ministry who will miss the presence of their dear friend.

Almighty God, Father of all mercies and giver of all comfort:  Deal graciously, we pray with those that mourn, that casting every care on you, they may know the consolation of your love, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen
