I would like to thank Deborah deBakker for her many years of producing the Net News! And thank you for guiding me through the first issue and I’m sure I will have a few more questions as we go along.

Hi, I’m Sharon Corston and I have recently taken over from Deborah. We have had a bit of a glitch but we are good to go now.

I hope you enjoy receiving the Thunder Bay-North Shore Deanery Net News.
