As a result of this passion, Marcie attended the University of Manitoba where she obtained a Bachelor of Human Ecology degree (Family Studies), focussing on family dynamics and the impact of gender inequality.  She began her career in the field of social services as a volunteer at Osborne House and Street Connections.  Marcie became employed at Osborne House while still in university and later at Street Connections following graduation.  Marcie was hired at Osborne House as a receptionist initially, and has since worked her way through different positions within the organization including Residential Support Worker and Women’s Counsellor.  While seeking new challenges a few years ago, Marcie became the Volunteer Coordinator and once the new shelter emerged, Willow Place, she then took on the additional responsibilities of the communications, donations and alternate funding sources as the Community Coordinator.  Marcie has been a dedicated employee of the shelter for over 20 years.  Marcie is also a dedicated wife and mother, she has been married for 21 years and has two sons Zach (17) and Tyson (15).  Marcie is active in her community and spends most of her free time watching her sons play football and hockey, being active herself, or enjoying time with family and friends.

  Children of Prophets  

B'nai Nevi'im: Children of Prophets Chavurah
(Formerly Maimonides Chavurah Group)

Held on the following Wednesdays at 8:00 PM:
May 24, June 7, 21

We have now embarked on a journey through the Former Prophets—as depicted in the books of First and Second Samuel, and First and Second Kings–featuring the likes of the prophets Samuel, Nathan, Elijah, Elisha, and others—not to mention King Saul, King David, King Solomon, and their royal descendants, right down to the destruction of the First Temple in 586 BCE. These often obscure books of the Bible offer a fascinating glimpse into the early history of Israel, and the complex and harrowing history through which we were guided by both Prophet and King, dozens of centuries before our own complex era.

“Even if they [Israel] are not prophetsthey are [nevertheless] the children of prophets” (Babylonian Talmud, Pesachim 66b).
