Reverend Mark Aitchison and his life partner, Pattie, have escorted groups to Israel, Europe, Peru, South Africa and Greece. They have travelled throughout Europe as well as to Australia, New Zealand, Turkey and Egypt. Mark spent the last 37 years as a pastoral minister in the United Church of Canada serving in rural and urban charges in Ontario and Saskatchewan. During his ministry he has also served in interim postings in Edinburgh, Scotland and Newcastle, Australia. Currently, he is Senior Minister at Islington United Church, Toronto, where he has served since 1993. Mark and Pattie are very excited about this journey and look forward to sharing this experience with you.
