    In May, the Canadian Council of Churches (CCC) marked the end of another triennium and a change in leadership for the CCC's Governing Board.

    Outgoing CCC President Lt-Colonel Jim Champ and General Secretary Karen Hamilton welcomed the new executive in a brief but meaningful ceremony, after a program which included a workshop on the ongoing crisis in Ukraine, and the introduction of Cesar Jaramillo, new executive director of CCC agency Project Ploughshares.

    Members of the new executive include Larry Brennan, treasurer; Bishop Ron Fabbro (Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops), vice-president; the Rev. Canon Alyson Barnett-Cowan (Anglican Church of Canada), president; the Rev. Stephen Kendall (Presbyterian Church in Canada), vice-president; the Rev. Dr. Willard Metzger (Mennonite Church Canada), vice-president; Lt-Colonel Jim Champ, outgoing president; the Rev. Dr. Karen Hamilton, General Secretary.

    “It was with great excitement and a deep sense of thanksgiving that the past president of the CCC and I installed the new executive,” says Rev. Dr. Hamilton. "The new officers bring to the CCC their wisdom, their experience, their commitment to ecumenism in Canada and around the world and the grace to witness and minister with creativity, energy and a sense of joy."
