We offer our sympathy to Linda Scherzinger on the death of her husband Kevin. Linda served several pastoral charges in Cape Breton as a Lay Pastoral Minister and so is known to many in our Presbytery. Our thoughts and prayers are with her and her family. Also we express our condolences to the family of Robert (Bob) Harnish who died recently. Bob was a presbyter from the former First United Church in Sydney.

The January meeting of Presbytery voted against Remit #1 on the restructuring of the United Church. The remit calls for a change from a four court system to three. Sympathy was expressed to the family of the late Louise Wareham who was a long time member of Presbytery from Warden United Church; also to the Rev Eric Lynk whose mother, Chris Lynk, passed away on Jan 17th. The Living in Harmony concert at Westmount United on Jan 15 in support of the El Ahmed family was a great success. The Rev. Donald MacDonald is recuperating well after a fall. Sympathy is extended to him on the death of his brother recently.
