This Sunday February 25 we will be celebrating the Second Sunday in Lent. We will have a 9am Book of Common Prayer Holy Communion (said service) and a 10:30am Book of Alternative Service of Eucharist with hymns and music. I will preach and celebrate at both services.
This Sunday is Food Bank Sunday. Donations can be dropped off inside the front foyer of the Church. If you miss the date for the month, no worries. The donation basket is there every week!
A soup and bread lunch will follow in the 10:30 service parish hall. All are welcome!
Thank you to Bill Morrow who stepped in last Sunday and celebrated for me allowing Lisa and I to get ahead of the snow storm to see her father in Markham. It was a good visit, although he continues to decline. Thanks also to Bob Burkholder for preaching last Sunday!
Children who wish to join the procession should line up at the back of the church before the service begins.
The 10:30 service will be live streamed on our YouTube Channel.
There is no Gathering this week because of Reading Week at Queens. There will, however, be a Gathering Games Night with Pizza in the parish hall.
Looking ahead this week…
