A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove, but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.

Rev. Shelly Manley-Tannis
Rev. Dr. Jack Carr
Jack was ordained by B.C. conference after completing his studies at the Vancouver school of theology in 1968. He was settled, at his request, in Saskatchewan, and has spent his entire ministry in this province. He and Louise were married in North Battleford (his second appointment). Louise was from Speers which was his first Pastoral charge. After 13 years in North Battleford they moved to Saskatoon where Jack served Mayfair United Church until retirement.
Music, art and theatre are strong interests - the Carr's have sung in the choir of every church they've served and they have done a great deal of travelling as well over the years.
After retirement, Jack served many years as the Pastor in Residence at St. Andrew's College. Encouraging students to believe and practice the ministry of pastoral care, he believes that every gathering, class, meeting or casual encounter can be a opportunity for pastoral care.
Mayfair United Church is lucky to have Warren Hay as our worship pianist. Warren has been with Mayfair Church for 19 years and when he is not teaching elementary school he can be found playing Double Bass in the Saskatoon Symphony or in various jazz or rock combos around Saskatoon. Warren's piano playing brings warmth, joy and beauty into our worship service.
