The Peterborough Covenant Commission has released its report from November 2016 with the final option for the Anglican and Lutheran Covenant churches in Peterborough. The option is to reduce the number of churches from five to two, with a "downtown" and an "uptown" church remaining. From January 29th to February 5th, town hall meetings will be held in each of the five churches hosted by the Commission representatives, the diocesan facilitator, and the episcopal facilitator.

We are proud to announce that Connie was appointed to the Order of the Diocese of Toronto on Sunday, January 1st, at the Archbishop's New Year's Levee and Evensong at St James's Cathedral. The citation reads, "Connie Swinton has been nominated by St John the Evangelist, Peterborough, for her life-long concern with serving the needs of others in her community and around the globe. Her international experience as a nurse and consultant speaks to her deep wisdom and compassion which is recognized by her peers. The vision of the Kingdom of God of justice and peace has long been the foundation of her ministry in her workplace and church."
