National Volunteer Week
This past week, Canadians celebrated National Volunteer Week. We would like to take a moment to thank all the volunteers that make the work of our church possible. Thank you.

Treated to something special
Served alongside the cake to honour the work of our volunteers, was Barb Swanson’s delicious Carrot, Zucchini, Pineapple Muffins. Barb graciously donates her time and baking to the Coffee Time Ministry at our church. After the 10:30 morning service on Sunday, people are invited to meet at the back of the cathedral for coffee, tea, juice and baking provided by volunteers, like Barb. As we sit and enjoy these tasty treats, we get an opportunity to meet new people and visit with old friends. This fellowship is truly the gift given by the volunteers of St. John’s Coffee Time Ministry. Our volunteers are truly something special!

Barb’s Muffins with the Most
If you would like to treat yourself to something special, why not whip up a batch of Barb’s muffins? These muffins have a great list of ingredients including zucchini, carrot, pineapple, coconut and raisins. I love them so much, I had to ask Barb for her recipe, and she was nice enough to share. Thanks, Barb.
