Parish Update: February 13, 2015

Hello St. Paul’s Family

Here are a few things you may need to know – I have attached a digital copy of the circular. There will be a few paper copies at the back of the church this Sunday. 

A call for Soup!!
We have had 32 neighbors in for soup in January and 25 so far in February. This is means there is a LOT of frozen soup going out (114 in the past 6 weeks). Our supply is low – very very low so if you have a little time in the next couple of weeks think about making soup. They often request split pea and ham, it seems to be a favorite. Other things that are very popular are frozen “treats” like cookies and brownies in zip lock bags. It is nice to offer that as a special bonus.

SUNDAY!!!!!ANNUAL VESTRY MEETING Sunday February 15th, following 10 amservice.  Light lunch and child care will be provided.

Pancake Supper – February 17 from 5 – 6:30pm in the hall. There is a suggested donation of $5. Come out and enjoy pancakes, crafts and laughs.

February Faith Lecture
St. Paul’s Cathedral
Sunday February 22, 2015
7:30 pm


The Rev. Canon Dr. Richard LeSueur

In the wake of another tragic episode of violence between Gaza and Israel this past summer, and disturbing trends sweeping across Syria and Iraq, one wonders whether this region can ever know peace. In this one address Richard will draw on his first-hand experience of recent history in Israel/Palestine, and provide an overview of the past century with maps and charts that illustrate the fundamental changes underway.  

The Rev. Canon Dr. Richard LeSueur
Richard is a former resident of Jerusalem. He continues to facilitate programs of pilgrimage and study in the biblical lands annually. He was the former Director of the Desert Program at St. George’s CollegeJerusalem, and serves as adjunct faculty with Trinity CollegeToronto. He is the rector of St. George, Cadboro BayVictoria

A Workshop at St. Paul’s Cathedral with The Rev. Canon Dr. Richard LeSueur
360 Nicola St. Kamloops BC

Monday February 23 2015
9:30 am – 11:30 am

A new reality has quietly but powerfully come on the stage of Western experience.  It is being described as a renaissance in pilgrimage. Thousands of footfalls are occurring on the ancient routes. One cannot know whether the attraction is towards the new and novel, the physical challenge, curiosity, or whether something deeper is taking place. Has a searching and longing in our culture in turn become a journeying? For decades the Christian community has been singing hymns of being a people on a journey, fellow travellers on the road. Perhaps that is truer today than ever before. In multiple ways, a contemporary rediscovery is underway that our name is indeed, pilgrim. 

Join us at the Cathedral for this exploration of the practice of pilgrimage.  It is a free event and all are welcome!. 
Please pre-register by calling:  250 372 3912 or by emailing

Richard LeSueur has been facilitating programs of pilgrimage for more than 30 years, principally in the Middle East. He was the former Director of the Desert Program at St. George’s CollegeJerusalem.

He serves as adjunct faculty with Trinity CollegeToronto and is rector of St. George, Cadboro BayVictoria.
