Thanksgiving Decor

As Thanksgiving approaches we will be looking for fresh vegetables and fruit to be contributed towards the Thanksgiving décor display at the front altar. If anyone wishes to contribute please drop off your items by 12 noon on October 5th. Pumpkins, squash, Indian corn, and gourds all add a touch of colour. Fresh is best! so please do not bring the items to the church prior to October 5th as the produce will then be delivered at a later date to Community Care for use by their clientele.

All donations are gratefully accepted.

Audio Video Team

Currently, we only have two teams of two people, but we really need four teams. Please consider joining the group, knowing that any unintentional errors are always forgiven. Please speak to Sandra or Donald if you are interested in this opportunity. The best way to start would be to spend time observing in the AV booth.

Blessing Of Pets

On Sunday, September 30 we will celebrate St. Francis Day with a service of Blessing of Home Animals at the 10:30 am worship service (no eucharist). Our guest preacher will be Dr. Marcie Toles, a Christian vet who operates Animal Health Services on Lake Street in St. Catharines. You are invited to bring your pet of any size or shape; stuffed animals can be blessed too! We will also take an opportunity to commemorate pets whom we have loved and lost–photos for a memory board are welcome. Envelopes will be available for those wishing to support the Farley Foundation (a charity that provides assistance with pet medical bills).

Those with allergies or discomfort with animals in church are invited to attend the 8:30 am worship service (which will include a celebration of the eucharist).

Going Going Gone!

This year’s Annual Silent Auction is not that far away! In three months, on Saturday, November 17, beginning at 6:00 p.m. this major fund-raiser will take place! For it to be successful, we need donations from the parishioners/friends/relatives, of new or gently used items. Along with that, talents (cooking, hosting a dinner) or anything else you can think of to generate funds for the church is greatly appreciated! This has been very successful each of the past three years, so please consider at least one donation. There is a list posted on the bulletin board to indicate what you would like to donate, and the amount you would like for people to bid. (Please print!). We’ll keep you up-to-date as time goes on. Thanks so much!
