The Right Rev. Dr. Gary Paterson, Moderator of the United Church of Canada, will be speaking at Georgian Shores United Church in Saturday, September 20, 2014 at 3:00 PM. He will be participating in an open question and answer session with members of Northern Waters Presbytery. All are welcome.

Paterson was elected in 2012 as the spiritual leader of Canada's largest Protestant church. He is the first openly gay person in the world to become the head of any Christian mainline denomination.

Paterson will also be preaching at a special service to recognize Kara McKluskie of Owen Sound as a Designated Lay Minister. She currently serves the United Church congregations at Chatsworth and Massie. The service begins at 6:30 PM at Georgian Shores United Church, at the corner of 10th St. East and 4th Ave East. Again, the public is welcome.

Rev. David Shearman
