Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Well, it’s here. My last day serving as your Minister for Justice and Mission in these 3 beautiful Regions. I know I have said this many times already, but it is true… it has been my great privilege to do this work. Thank you for the guidance and support that has enabled me to learn and grow in this ministry. And thank you for the ways that you have recognized, respected, and appreciated the distinction of a call to Diaconal Ministry. As I head into a new ministry as the Executive Director for Open Sky Co-operative, in Sackville, NB, I am leaving feeling tremendously blessed by all the people, places, and sacred experiences that have marked these last 14 years.

Thank you again to all those who played any role in the many tributes, messages, and thoughtful gifts that I have received these last weeks. I have updated my contact information in the directory of Fundy St. Lawrence Dawning Waters Region, if you wish to be touch.

With love and gratitude,
Laura Hunter, DM
