Youth Singing Together
Merging Waters is known for its diverse musical talent and musical events. And now there are even more possibilities, as Keith Whittall and Victoria Moulton, known for their musical expertise and experience with youth, have offered to coordinate a youth singing group for Merging Waters in the Fall -an opportunity for young people (8 and up) to sing together. It would be very collaborative, with the young people helping to make decisions as to the music. Please spread the word. Those interested should contact Keith Whittall or Victoria Moulton at 514-425-2136 or



Meditation chez Vicki is starting back up TOMORROW! Thursdays from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.! Individuals who meditate seem to feel better, do better, and find that the practice sustains them in their personal and professional lives. Why not give meditation a try?


Do you like to spread good news on a Sunday morning? Union Church could use a couple of new volunteers to stand up at the mic and deliver the Community News at the start of worship, only a few times during each liturgical year. Prerequisite: willingness to speak concisely in public and show up a few minutes before the service to receive last-minute additions. Please contact Christine at to add your name to the roster!



Yoga for the mind, body and soul:

Hello all future yogis/yoginis. Once again a gentle Hatha yoga course will be offered this Fall. The course will run for 12 weeks. Classes will be from 7:00-8:00pm on Tuesdays in Adair Hall. (NB: For days when there is soup pot in Adair Hall arrangements will be made to have yoga in the sanctuary at 6pm.) There are a couple of options for payment. You can pay 7.50$/class and pay as you go. The other option is 80$ paid on the first class for 12 classes.

I look forward to seeing old and new faces. 🙂

Union Walking Group

We had a good group of 4 walkers this week, and enjoyed an invigorating walk. From now on we meet in front of the Simon Fraser House, on Ste-Anne near the bridge, always at 10:00 A.M on Mondays. Come join us -an opportunity for those in the community of Union and Ste-Anne to walk together to improve fitness and endurance, while in the company of like-minded individuals. For certain people, it may serve as preparation for more challenging hikes, either locally or internationally.

Participants should dress for the weather and bring a water bottle.

Contact us if you are interested in walking with us.
