Dear friends,

This week, starting on Wednesday evening I will be spending five days in Loyola House in Guelph, in retreat. It will be a time for me to ‘unplug’ and restore my soul ahead of the busy fall schedule. Archbishop Fred will be Commissary until Monday 28th August when the retreat concludes. Please reach out to your Territorial Archdeacons or a member of the Synod office staff for assistance with a local matter. If the issue requires our Commissary’s attention he can easily be reached via email or phone.  Please contact Liz Hamel (705-256-5061 X27) to connect with him.

You will be upheld in my prayers and time of contemplation over the coming days as I continue to give thanks for the privilege of being your bishop.

Yours in Christ,
