IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Mon November 18th
At Vuokila residence
2020 is going to be an exciting year: St. Michael's Church is getting a full-time pastor! We are beyond happy to welcome pastor Mira Salmelainen to our friendly congregation and extended Finnish community of Montreal in January. St. Michael's has been searching its way for almost a year, guided by the ideas collected in the future visioning event last January, and in good hands of the interim and consulting pastors that served us during this time. Now a new path is laid, and we are grateful and blessed to have pastor Mira to walk with us along it.

We are organizing it again, and we are inviting YOU to to join our team! Help us serve supper to those in need. A warm meal on a cold evening is a big deal. We promise you a very humbling and heart-warming experience, and a very concrete way to help. We will start at 3:30 p.m. and it usually takes about 3 hours to serve the meals.
Interested? Let us know, we have a limited amount of spots!
Send email to iitu.vuokila (at) gmail.com to sign up.
On the All Saints Sunday on October 27th, three members of our congregation received awards from the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland's Ministry to Finns Abroad. They were recognized for their significant contributions to the congregational life and operations of St. Michael's Church over the years. Congratulations to all! Here is our council chairman Samuli with one of the awardees: Heli Parenteau, a long-term active member and currently in the church council. The other awardees were Pirkko Kotkavuori (Metsämarttila) and Heikki Metsämarttila.

Onnittelut kaikille tunnustuksen saaneille! Kuvassa seurakunnan puheenjohtajan Samulin kanssa yksi ansiomerkin saajista, Heli Parenteau. Ansiomerkin saivat myös Pirkko Kotkavuori (Metsämarttila) ja Heikki Metsämarttila.
A place for Finns, for those who love Finland, for those of faith, and those who simply ask meaningful questions of LIFE
