Union Church is very pleased to have Pat Mayberry joining us to sing as part of our aboriginal service on Sunday, June 11th! For those of you who don’t know Pat, she has written several hymns included in the ‘More Voices’ United Church hymn book, one of the best know of which is ‘Called by Earth and Sky’. Pat also co-wrote our last road show at Union, ‘A Gift of Light’, with Pierre Gallant, our Union music and choir director. Pat will be singing two songs for the aboriginal service, one which comes from her latest CD just released. She will be selling her CDs after the service, the older CDs for $10 and the just-released CD for $20. A percentage of the CD sales will be go toward the refugee fund. So please come and support a very gifted singer-songwriter who has contributed a lot in her music ministry to the United Church.
