Deacon Ron MacLellan died on July 14, 2022. He was 82 years old. He served our parish community for over forty years. For 35 years, he was a classroom teacher and a consultant with the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic School Board. He was ordained a permanent deacon for the Archdiocese of Toronto in 1983 and did his ministry with wisdom and compassion for 38 years. He was a coordinator for pastoral care and provided outreach to our care centres and retirement homes. He was a Chaplaincy Coordinator at the RVH and an invaluable advocate for the marginalized and impoverished in our community. He could often be found walking downtown and speaking with the outcast and rejected of our society. His life was a model of service and for this, we give thanks to God.
