This section of the website introduces some of the people that are, or have been, a part of the Hudson Pastoral Charge.  Of course, everyone who is a part of the congregation is important....  but a few have things written about them. 

Some of the material is on our own site, and some of these are links that take you to other websites.  Of course, we are not responsible for the advertizing and other content on other sites.

Enjoy meeting the people of the congregation!

March 23, 2013 - published in the Montreal Gazette

In our little town this past year, one of the first people awarded the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal was the indefatigable Maxine Bredt.
