Special Worship Service

We will be welcoming a number CARICOM guests to Parkdale United on June 23. CARICOM refers to Heads of Diplomatic Missions in Canada, their diplomatic officers and other officials from the High Commissions/Embassy.

They have asked to celebrate with us in a worship service to hear some of the work they are doing both in Canada and in their respective Caribbean countries. They have also very generously invited the congregation to join them in the Memorial Hall for some refreshments after worship. Please join us as you are able.
