Thank you to everyone who came out on Sunday, February 26th to celebrate the one-year celebration of our refugee sponsorship initiative. It was great to be able to say thank you to so many Knox friends, special guests, dignitaries and members of the community, who have contributed to the sponsorship in a multitude of different ways. A big thank you also to all the helpers who organized the food and cake, and who came out early and stayed late to help set up the room and clean up after the festivities were over.

The Lighthouse for Grieving Children has moved to a new home! They are now located in a recently refurbished and larger building at the corner of Rebecca St. and Bronte Rd. They had outgrown their former space in downtown Oakville, which is a testament not only to the need for this kind of grief support in Halton, but also to the sheer hardwork and determination of Lighthouse staff dedicated to providing support services to children.

Rev. Jacqui opened the church on Monday night to give people place to pray for the lives lost and the people hurt in the shooting at a mosque in Quebec City.

Thank you to everyone who came out to pray and lament together, to remember those whose lives were taken away, and to hold our Muslim brothers and sisters before God in prayer. News of the service was shared widely on social media, and many members of the community, including a representative from the MP’s office, were in attendance.
