The Vestry meeting is your opportunity to learn more about the church’s financial position. The Wardens will be presenting a budget for 2021 and your participation is important. We will also be voting on the Diocese of Toronto’s Social Justice Motion, “Committing Ourselves to Anti-Racism” which can be found here.
Leadership elections and appointments
This year we will be electing a People’s Warden and Deputy People’s Warden. Sharm Powell and Carol Ambler have both agreed to let their names stand, respectively. Nominations will be open until February 26 at 5 p.m. Please speak to Rev’d Rob if you’re interested in learning more.
Rev’d Rob also intends to appoint Allan Taylor (from the 8:30 a.m. congregation) as Deputy Rector’s Warden and to re-appoint Janice Douglas as Rector’s Warden. Allan and his parents, Dave and Maureen, have attended St. Olave’s since 2003. He and his wife Krysta have three children, all of whom whom were confirmed at St. Olave’s in the past few years (and two were even baptized here!). Allan is also a long-time supporter of the Hunger Patrol, and is a founding partner of a commercial property management company.
