February 26, 2016: Parish Email

Here are some things you should know

Thanks to the hard working volunteers who put on the evening, those who came to the dinner, those who provided silent auction items and those who bought the items a $1900 profit was realized.  One half of the proceeds ($950.00) will go to the Syrian Refugee Fund through PWRDF.   The Government of Canada will match this amount.   Thanks again. Roger Parkes (Parish Life and Fellowship committee)

World Day of Prayer
March 4, 2016 1pm at St. Paul’s
The World Day of Prayer is a global ecumenical movement which brings Christians of many traditions together to observe a common day of prayer each year. Through preparation and participation in the worship service, we can come to know how our sisters of other countries, languages and cultures understand the Biblical passages in their context. We can hear their concerns and needs and can feel ourselves in solidarity with them as we pray with and for them. In this way, it is possible to enrich our Christian faith as it grows deeper and broader in an international, ecumenical expression.
The motto of the World Day of Prayer movement is Informed Prayer and Prayerful Action. Through our participation in the World Day of Prayer, we affirm that prayer and action are inseparable and that both have immeasurable influence on the world.

Week 1
Sunday, July 10 – Saturday, July 16, 2016
Spirit Links
with Trevor Fisher and Helena-Rose Houldcroft 
Golf is a game that mimics life. One moment you are soaring with eagles, the next you are in the doldrums; and these conditions have nothing to do with ability.
One can be "unlucky" and what should have been a perfect position turns out that something small and insignificant has turned your position to a humiliating impossibility.
Solutions to these crazy-making scenarios in golf can be applied to life off the course, which is where Spirit Links comes in.
During the week we will play five different courses, all close to the Centre, in the company of our fellow golfers, all of differing golfing talent.
We will support each other and provide opportunities to try different ways of getting that uncooperative ball into the hole with fewer strokes. It's a great week of fun and instruction.
