Multifaith Saskatchewan AGM 2019-2020

Multifaith Saskatchewan AGM 2019-2020

Hello Everyone

This year Multifaith Saskatchewan will hold its AGM on July 29, 2020 (5pm to 7pm) and on a virtual or remote platform due to the ongoing pandemic. The meeting will occur on Zoom link.

The Guest speaker for the AGM is Rev. Dr. David Holmes of the Calgary Alliance for the Common Good and the Calgary Inter-Faith Council. He has been an ordained minister in the United Church of Canada for 32 years. Learning is his passion, and this has taken him into degrees at the Vancouver School of Theology and Columbia Theological Seminary in Atlanta, training in spiritual direction, non-profit leadership, educational supervision, and community organizing. He is currently involved in the Calgary Alliance for the Common Good and the Calgary Inter-Faith Council, and is a team minister at Knox United Church in Calgary (but only for a few more days). He’s married to Karen with two grown sons.

Please contact Amr Henni (amr.henni [at] uregina [dot] ca) to obtain the zoom link to participate in the meeting and other documents for the AGM. Please feel free to share this information with those who will be interested. We look forward to having your presence on this virtual platform and shape the future of Multifaith Saskatchewan.
