For the past 17 years, the Venerable John Course has ministered to the people of St. David’s Welland, providing leadership, support, encouragement and friendship.

During the summer, writes Church Secretary Joan Perry, the parish family held a farewell luncheon for John and his wife, Bev.

“It was an emotional celebration for Bev Martin Course,” continued Joan, “as she has been a life-long member of St. David’s.” Both have been “a vital part of the life of our parish.”

John continues his ministry as Rector of Holy Trinity Fonthill.
