Retirement Celebration

An Evening to Recognize 31 years of Ministry


Maple Grove United Church

7:00pm – 8:00pm – Reverential Roast

8:00pm onwards – Fun Eats n’ Treats

March 26, 2018
Fellow Maple-Grovers,

Morar will retire this summer after 30+ years with us at Maple Grove United Church. We want her to know how much we appreciate her caring presence in our lives, and we will be celebrating with her.  Morar came to Maple Grove United Church at a time when having a woman minister was unique and revolutionary.  She and her husband established a family and grew with us while giving so much of themselves to Oakville and Maple Grove. 

We’re planning a terrific evening of fun, celebration, music, laughter and good friends. There will be a “Reverential Roast” in the sanctuary, followed by lots of light refreshments, fellowship, and surprises in the gym.  Please join us!

When:     Saturday, May 12, 2018

Time:      7:00 pm

Where:    Maple Grove United Church, 346 Maple Grove Drive, Oakville

Tickets:   $30.00 https://hats-off-to-morar.eventbrite.ca

Think about sharing your memories and reflections of Morar. https://goo.gl/forms/ICnyMUSfqup1n6sv2. These reflections with photos, will be published in a Memory Book which will be presented to Morar during her final service in June. It will be a permanent memory and keepsake of the many hats she wore as a minister at Maple Grove United, and as an active resident of Oakville.  

Please donate to help us with a parting gift for Morar: https://a-gift-for-rev-morar.eventbrite.ca

Tickets are available through our Invitation Website as of March 25, 2018:  https://hats-off-to-morar.eventbrite.ca

We’re looking forward to hearing from you, and sincerely hope you can join us in honouring a wonderful and brilliant woman!
