On Thursday 2nd February, The Revd Nadim Nassar was joined by Col. Chris Hadfield, famous Canadian astronaut and author, and Adrienne Arsenault, News and Documentary Emmy Award-winning CBC journalist, for a special fundraising event in Toronto, Canada. Hosted at the prestigious Gardiner Museum, Nadim and Col. Hadfield spoke about their meeting at supper with HM The Queen at Windsor Castle in 2016, and the unique perspectives on life that their very different experiences, in the Lebanese Civil War and aboard the International Space Station, have given them. 

Col. Hadfield very generously brought two signed photographs of Canada, taken by him while in space, which were auctioned. We should like to thank Col. Hadfield and Adrienne Arsenault for their amazing contribution to this wonderful evening. Special thanks are due to Christopher Bunting, James Appleyard, Bob Davies and our many friends at Grace Church-on-the-Hill for organising this spectacular event.
