Reverend Dr. Morar Murray-Hayes

The Reverend Dr. Morar Murray-Hayes is the Minister of Maple Grove United Church, and is a member of the Interfaith Councill of Halton. A chatty extrovert with a conversational preaching style, a multi-tasker who is a “multi-worrier” when it comes to caring about people’s problems, and a leader who treasures teaming with the lay people in her church, Morar says that at Maple Grove she has experienced “a deeper level of ministry than I thought possible.” Anyone who has personally received Morar’s deeply compassionate caring and wise counsel will testify to what an inspirational, healing and encouraging ministry it is.

Maple Grove United Church of Canada is celebrating the presentation of The Maple Grove United Church First Nation Scholarship to Cyndil Corbiere.

On September 24th, a celebration took place at the University of Sudbury at Laurentian University to celebrate one of its students, Cyndil Corbiere.

This past summer, the Maple Grove United Church Scholarship was established to assist Indigenous students in meeting their financial needs during the course of their full-time studies within the Laurentian Federation. Cyndil Corbiere, transitioning to the University of Sudbury’s Indigenous Studies program from Kenjgewin Teg Education Institute (KTEI) located in M’Chigeeng on Manitoulin Island, is the first student to be awarded this very generous scholarship.

As a recipient, she is now entitled to benefit from the annual scholarship of $7,500 as long as she continues to meet the requirements of the scholarship and remain in good academic standing.

Congratulations Cyndil! We wish you the best of luck as you continue your journey!
