Remembrance Day Service —
Rev. Fran Dearman, Homilist —
Johnathan Savard, Worship Associate —
Remembrance Day is a time to remember those who died in wartime, to consider why humans go to war, and to discuss how to strive for peace. Our November 11th ceremony includes Unitarians who have served in the Canadian Forces and speaks to all who never want to see war again. All are welcome.
Rev. Fran Dearman is a retired UU Minister and long-time member of this congregation, where she likes to think of herself as a founding toddler. Fran served twenty-three years with the Naval Reserve, alongside ten years as a ship’s officer on Great Lakes freighters, before entering the ministry. Fran served as parish minister in Anchorage, Alaska, and at various congregations in Canada as an interim minister. Fran is retired to her family home here in Victoria for five years now, and serves as chaplain to Public Service Branch 127 of the Royal Canadian Legion.
