My Dear Friends at Rothwell United Church,
After prayerful and serious consideration I have made the heartrending decision to leave Rothwell United Church effective Sunday, April 30, 2023.
I cannot begin to express my love, gratitude, and loyalty to RUC. Fifteen of my twenty-four years of ordained ministry have been with you. When I arrived in September 2007, Aidan was just five years old, and Isaac was only two…they are both young men now. You helped me raise my boys. What a gift to know their life story -and mine- is linked with such a loving community of faith.
I am certain your collective wisdom, faith, and calling, with the help of the Spirit, will enable you to wend your way through what comes next for you. You will not be alone in your next steps: God and the Region will be with you.
As most of you know, a public announcement was made last Sunday indicating I will begin a new ministry at Orleans United Church on May 1, 2023.
I will miss you all.
With Sadness, Hope, and Love,
Rev. Mike Perreault
His book “Deaf, Blind Champion “ is a true story of hope, inspiration, and excellence in sport and life. It’s an autobiography that shares my life journey, my outlook, and highlights, my approach to remaining positive, no matter what might come your way.
It has been a great long year putting this book together. Part of the proceeds will be going to charity Guide Dogs For The Blind. If you would like to be inspired!!! You need to read this.
You can purchase either paperback, eBook, Kindle/Amazon.
