St. Margaret’s bids a fond farewell to Rhondda MacKay

Our rector The Reverend Canon Rhondda MacKay officially retired on August 1, 2017. In June, we held a celebration of her ministry, which included positions in Anglican churches in Alta Vista, Leitrim, Westboro, Sandy Hill, as well as here at St. Margaret’s Vanier.  We thank all who organized this wonderful evening, and all who came to wish Rhondda (and Robin) MacKay well.  The extent of their involvement in parish life was extraordinary and the fruits will be harvested for years to come.

She has been an exemplary and dutiful leader who will be fondly remembered for her dedication to Aboriginal Canadians in general and our Inuit congregation in particular, spirit-led art, Celtic Christians, “taking it to the street”, building partnerships—and her readiness to make a pot of tea.
