Letter from the Bishop Regarding Rev. Canon Ralph Blackman's Retirement 

To the Parish of St. George’s Church, Guelph,


Please find below a letter from the Bishop of Niagara regarding the recent announcement concerning the Rev Canon Ralph Blackman’s retirement in February 2022.


As outlined in the letter, the Bishop will be connecting with the Wardens to discuss models for interim ministry as well as future plans for the eventual clergy appointment. We will keep the Parish apprised of any updates throughout the process.


At this time we would like to let Ralph know of our support as he adjusts to this time of transition in his own life, and send many good wishes his way as he looks forward to his retirement.
