On June 30, 2019 Mennonite Women Canada elected to dissolve nationwide ministry for the purpose of releasing energy and assets to the regions, so that they could grow stronger in their ministry with and through women. The day's theme was “to everything there is a season.” We celebrated our legacy through a litany which included historical vignettes about the flame in our mothers and grandmothers that helped them claim their voice and agency in a male-dominated church. We thank God this is no longer the case, and look forward to new avenues of ministry and of connecting as women and as sisters and brothers in our wider faith family. 

Women's groups, thank you for your faithful support of our past work. Please send your ongoing donations for missions to your regional church and partner with the Witness workers of your choice. (Adapted from an August 19 article in Canadian Mennonite, to indicate our organization has been dissolved and is in the process of closing down.)
