Reverend Sam Propsom was the last ordained Moravian Church minister to be stationed in Labrador. After serving out of the community of Hopedale for five years, Propsom and his family left Labrador.
Since then there hasn’t been an ordained Moravian Church minister in Labrador. But that will change after this weekend.
Paul Graf is a Bishop from the Moravian Church in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.
He says he and his wife Jane along with Loren Jendron, Labrador’s representative with the Board of World Missions, are in Labrador to ordain Glenna Taseden, who comes from Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
Taseden will be ordained by Bishop Graf in Happy Valley on Sunday, February 14th at 11AM. Taseden, who recently finished training to be a Minister, will serve out of Happy Valley.
