Roger’s Legacy

Former MCM Director and much loved colleague and friend, Roger Snelling, passed away peacefully at home in Ottawa on December 14th, 2013.

Roger was an exceptional and unique individual, whose passion for social justice was only surpassed by his integrity and authenticity. Roger worked tirelessly to change things in the present and plan a better future for all.

Part of that planning was a generous bequest he left Montreal City Mission in his will.

Roger’s legacy

is rich and diverse and will continue to make an impact for years to come.

Roger was such a highly motivated dedicated activist who touched so many of our lives. He was tenacious and was guided by his faith and social justice values. He was a great administrator and problem solver. He was a dreamer who realized that dreams announce the possibility of another reality. He was a visionary who led his life knowing that from a certain point onward there is no longer any turning back - a point that must be reached if we are going to participate in creating a more just world.
