the thelma wynne project…

It’s layette time again! The Thelma Wynne Project supplies layettes for needy new mothers in our city. For this very important and necessary outreach there is a great need for new baby clothes, baby toiletries – or cash donations if you so wish. During the month of February there will be a basket at the foot of the font to receive your much appreciated donations. Thank you!

Coffee time…

We are still looking for volunteers to donate baking for our coffee time after the 10:30 a.m. service on Sunday. Thank you so much to those who have made  baking contributions!

weekly announcements…

Any congregation member who wishes to have an announcement made on a Sunday is asked to give a written copy of the announcement to Canon Condo at least fifteen minutes prior to the service. Canon Condo will, in turn, make these announcements each week prior to the start of the Sunday service.

Volunteer opportunity…

Under the direction of the Dean / Incumbent the librarian supports a church’s goal to educate and provide spiritual direction to its members. This unpaid volunteer learns on the job. The church librarian is responsible for organizing library books and other materials, keeping track of books lent to church goers and promoting the library. more information

prayer request…

The following e-mail was received from The Rev. John Gill, formerly associated with St. Margaret’s Parish, and now serving in Pakistan – It is shocking news for us that Mr. Shahbaz Bhatti, the Minister for Minorities, has been killed by the terrorists in Islamabad. This minister supported the case of Asima, a Christian lady who is being tried in court. Please pray for the Christians in Pakistan. Our Christian institutions will remain closed tomorrow due to the death of this young leader of the minorities. Thank you so much for sharing in prayer with us.
