Current News

Rev. Vincent Alfano
Executive Director 1995 – 2014

It is with profound sadness that the Board and staff of Council share with you the news of the death of Vince Alfano on Tuesday January 27th.  Our prayers and love go out to Vince’s partner, the Reverend Leslee Alfano and their families.  

Vince led Council’s work with distinction for almost twenty years of expansion, diversification, new vision, and organizational transformation.  

On his retirement in 2014, Council recognized his exceptional leadership by creating The Vincent Alfano Fund – an endowment fund which will provide financial support for internships or equivalent positions focused on engaging congregations and mission units with the diverse and changing members of their immediate communities.

The Board motion outlining the purpose of the fund can be found here. You can become a fund partner here.  

A memorial service is to be held at St. Paul's United Church on March 21 at 11 am. More details can be found here.


Coming Events

 Save the date for Council's 7th Annual Heart & Vision Awards Concert on Monday, May 11 2015. Award recipients are Lieutenant General Roméo Dallaire and Mary Jo Leddy. More details here.
