Mary-Martha Hale, Executive Director of Centre 454, to retire in June
Mary-Martha Hale has announced her retirement as Executive Director of Centre 454, effective the end of June, 2014. Ms. Hale has been the Executive Director of Centre 454 for 16 years and is a well-known figure among the homelessness sector in Ottawa.
During her tenure, the Centre has grown into a highly-regarded, award winning, and essential partner in the City of Ottawa's plan to support individuals experiencing homelessness and poverty in our community. Recently, Ms. Hale managed and shepherded the return of the Centre to St. Albans Church and its integration into the Sandy Hill neighbourhood and community. Plans are underway to recognize Ms. Hale's contribution
to the City of Ottawa and the Diocese at an event that will be held closer to her formal retirement. Details will be distributed through community networks. Under the direction of the Director of Mission, Peter John Hobbs, a process is now underway to select a new Executive Director for the Centre. Details will be published in late February here at the diocesan website.

Appealing for Canadian Church Calendar Secretary for the Diocese of Ottawa for year 2015
I will continue as Calendar Secretary for 2014 with hope and faith that someone will come forward during the year to learn the ropes and subsequently be on board for 2015. It is a very rewarding position, in that you have the opportunity to meet and chat with various contacts in a fair number of churches throughout the Diocese.
Subsequently, if your schedule permits, you will be required to be one day at Synod, attend the ACW Annual Meeting to give a report, and be in contact with the ACW Board throughout the year.
I have enjoyed being the Calendar Secretary for a good number of years and feel that now is the time for new blood and computer-age savvy. Catherine Hannah.

GIFT campaign, 2011- 2016
Contribute to our exciting capital campaign, raising $12-million for parish, diocesan and wider church programs and ministries Through increased involvement and support, GIFT draws us together as one Church. As it builds on the positive results of the stewardship initiatives currently in practice, parishioners will develop a better understanding of our Church's ministries in parishes and in local communities as well as nationally and internationally. Ultimately, this experience will give far more to a parish than merely the dollars raised.
