A Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!
O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever. Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, those he redeemed from trouble…
Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love,
for his wonderful works to humankind. For he satisfies the thirsty,
and the hungry he fills with good things.
Dear friends, please remember to bring something to share tomorrow, Sunday, for our Thanksgiving offering;
non-perishable items for Winnipeg Harvest are especially welcome. Also, you may give an extra financial offering and designate that for ‘Winnipeg Harvest’, cheque made out to ‘St. John’s Anglican Cathedral’. Every dollar given is multiplied twenty times by Harvest, so any amount is a great gift also.

Canned fruit and vegetables (packed in own juice)

So far, as of today, Saturday, we are well behind last year’s Thanksgiving offering; if you’re coming to worship tomorrow, to give thanks as we do every Sunday, please consider bringing a generous donation, as generous as you are able, in your circumstances, either food or money, for Winnipeg Harvest. If you come early, you can add it to the display at the altar. Worship begins at 10:30 a.m. Come and join us in giving thanks.
Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wonderful works to humankind. And let them offer thanksgiving sacrifices, and tell of his deeds with songs of joy.
