Each new person enters the world full of curiosity. A community raises a child, a Baptism or Welcoming ceremony introduces the world to this wonderful new being. The child is given an additional name to further help define who they are. We ask another couple to accept responsibility in nurturing this child in a formal commitment. My wife and I live in Washago in a quiet setting on a river, and are moving to North Bay in July 2018. I have respect for all forms of faith. I am a tradesman, senior manager, educator and musician, having lived in Ontario, Alberta and Newfoundland. I would be delighted to assist you in making this special occasion all you have dreamed it would be.
