Sunday evening, The Rev. Holly Klemmensen (Emmaus, Sault Ste. Marie) received the sad news that her father, Hans Klemmensen, died suddenly on Saturday in Edmonton. Funeral plans are not yet made but Rev. Holly expects to be travelling to Edmonton for it this week. Rev. Bruce McLeish will be available to assist parishioners with any pastoral emergencies and will be taking the Sunday services on June 12th.

Please hold Rev. Holly, Hans’ wife Lana, her brother Bill (Lida), and her sons Ben (Kristyn), Brandon (Rebecca) and Justin in your prayers in the coming days. Charlene, Rev. Holly’s mother, predeceased Hans in 2001.


“Almighty God, Father of mercies and giver of comfort, deal graciously we pray, with all who mourn; that casting all their care on you, they may know the consolation of your love, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.”
