What’s Going On – 26 March

At the start of our service this morning, there will be a tribute to Bishop Terry who died early Monday morning and whose funeral was held yesterday.   We hold dearly the important presence Bishop Terry brought to our parish family with his deep compassion and strength of vision to help move us forward. terry

Everyone is invited to sign the condolence card for A.J.

Food Cupboard – Donations of non-perishable food are needed for the food cupboard.  Items that don’t require cooking are always helpful as people who use the food cupboard do not necessarily have a place to cook.  Easy open cans ie those that don’t require a can opener are also useful.  Canned fish, such as tuna, and vegetables without added sugar are also in demand.

Audio divina

There’s lectio divina, where you read a text repeatedly and sink deeper into it each time. There’s visio divina, where you study a photo in a similar way.

So why not “audio divina” where you listen to a sermon again.
Our sermons here at All Saints are recorded and posted each week. You can listen to them right on the website, or you can subscribe through your podcast feed and get them delivered automatically.

37th Annual Spring Sale

Yes, it’s time to start thinking “Spring Sale”. Our sale will be held this year on Saturday, May 6th from 8:30 AM to 1:00 PM.  For the Sale to be successful we need EVERYONE to make a contribution. How can you help…let me count some ways – donating goods to sell, baking your favourite goodies for the Bake Sale area, helping to sort goods before the Sale, setting up tables the Sunday before the Sale, delivering flyers in your neighbourhood, ordering flowers through the church, staffing a sales area the day of the Sale, cleaning up after the Sale, and finally making a money contribution to help defray overhead costs of the Sale (tax receiptable). Oh, yes, and SHOPPING at the Sale.
In order to be successful we need to concentrate on the things that sell well:
Clean, gently-used clothing;  treasures;  collectibles;  vintage items;  books (but no text books);  cd’s, dvd’s (but no VHS tapes);  jewellery;  small furniture; linens; toys and games; pictures ;  lamps;  small electrical appliances (no t.v.’s);  house wares and kitchenware;  sports equipment.
We will be ready to receive your donations starting Monday, March 27th
Items can be dropped off on the auditorium stage during the following times:
Monday thru Thursday 4:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Saturday 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Sunday 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Oh yes, BOXES, BOXES, BOXES…We need lots of liquor store boxes to store donations in, after we have sorted them.  Most outlets will give you 4 or 5 at a time and you don’t even have to buy something!
