NEW- The ECORC Affirming Ministries Network
The East Central Ontario Regional Council has formed an Affirming Ministries Network. Everyone is welcome to join this network- individuals, Communities of Faith – those who are new and seeking information, those who have been doing this for many years. Information about the next network gathering on Saturday January 14, 2023 will be in the ECO RC newsletter soon.

The ECORC Affirming Forum
The ECORC Affirming Forum helps the East Central Ontario Regional Council (ECORC) create a space and an awareness of what full inclusion would look like. The ECORC Affirming Forum will also support the work of the ECORC living into being an Affirming Regional Council.
