Faith Circle East

Founded 2012 (Southwest Ont. District Union)

2011 and 2012 have been a birthing time for Faith Circle East (FCE). We were born out of the

original Faith Circle from which our Circle was formed in November 2011. At this time we elected

our own executive and joined with our sister Circle in establishing the Southwest Ontario District

Union at which we are represented on its executive. In early 2012 we held our first meeting of our

Circle on its own in Hamilton. In addition we have had a number of joint meetings with Faith Circle

West (FCW) which were held in Thorold, Niagara-on-the-Lake and Hamilton. We participate in all

the church-related, fund-raising and social activities of our district, such as supporting several

foster children through Plan Canada. Several of our members spend time at Chautauqua each

summer. For a more complete list of our activities, please see the 2013 SODU district Report. Our

membership is primarily based in the GTA, with most members coming from large cities of Toronto,

Hamilton and Brampton. No new Circle that we know of springs to life without its birth pains and

its ups and downs. That is true for us too. We began with 8 members, but last year we lost an

entire family of 4 members, who withdrew related to employment and attending university.

Fortunately, in 2012 we also gained Christine and John Dawson, who transferred in from the

Ottawa area. There is added strength for the journey in numbers and we have many wonderful

friendships with folks in FCW, so near the end of 2012 we decided to temporarily hold our

meetings jointly with our sister Circle FCW. This will benefit and nurture both Circles. At this time

we have half a dozen very active members, such as Vince Ciarlo, who is the editor of The Silver

Cross and serves on the International Order of The King’s Daughters and Sons Board of Directors.

We also have members who serve on the executive of the Branch or District Union. We are a new,

out-going and friendly Circle and we are actively seeking new members and would welcome any

referrals.
