Monica Patten is currently Interim Director of the Resources for Mission Department of General Synod. Originally from the Diocese of Ottawa, Monica has served on numerous church committees at the diocesan and national levels. For Ms. Patten the church stands out as a special place for giving and participation. Rich relationships, living out the Gospel message, and supportive community all inspire a strong call to give to and participate in the life of God’s church.
Ms. Patten’s words illustrate the importance of community as the place where stewardship and generosity take root. Consider using this video to as a way of showing how each of us is a source of generosity that can contribute to the fulfillment of the Marks of Mission.
