What's Happening May 22 - 28, 2017

On Sunday, May 28 at 10:30 am, our service will be The Fire on Simpson Street with Rev. Diane Rollert, and music by Sandra Hunt, Maider Martineau and the Parts in Peace Choir. Thirty years ago, on May 24, 1987, our former building on Simpson and Sherbrooke Street was consumed in a tragic fire. The lives of two firemen were lost and the congregation faced an uncertain future. On this Sunday, we will commemorate this sad event and the journey that moved us forward to become the community we are today. The service will be followed by the May RE community lunch.

The UCM Community Hike on Mount-Royal will leave from UCM at 1 pm by public transit (and/or carpooling if possible) after the Sunday service and the RE community lunch, and walk from Beaver Lake to the cross, and back down again. The total walking time will be about one and a half hours, at a relaxed pace which will be appropriate for children and elders. We will be walking along groomed trails and roads, with a total elevation rise of about 50m over the course of the walk. Please bring your own water bottle and sun coverage, and wear comfortable shoes. The hike will be rescheduled in case of heavy rain or thundershowers.  If you have questions or if you can offer carpool space, please contact Katharine Childs.
