This Sunday is our Annual Vestry Meeting – please stay after the service to hear how our parish is doing and have a say in where we are heading in 2020. A light lunch will be provided, and good news shared!  (If a couple of people can help the Sunday coffee folks with the clean-up at the end of the meeting, that would be very much appreciated.) 

Your 2019 Tax Receipts are ready for you. Pick them up at the back of the church on Sunday. A huge shout out to Barb Williams for getting them to us in such a timely manner!! 

Needed for the library: a bookshelf similar to the ones already there to handle the overflow of books we have. 

The deadline for registering to attend this year’s Cursillo weekend is NOW. Held at Camp Imadene near Lake Cowichan March 6-8th, this little course in Christianity helps people drop more deeply into a faith-filled life. Speak to Selinde if you would like more information.

 If we don’t have your birthday or anniversary date on our parish list, we can’t celebrate with you!  And we like to give thanks for your birth and for the love in your lives. So, please give your special dates to KAT in the office. 

We had a deluxe walker loaned out for a year or so; it’s just been returned and we can’t remember whose it is. If it’s yours, please let KAT know. Thank you. 

Greetings have come in from the Trushes and Sandifords this week – they are doing well! Thanks be to God. 

Upcoming Lenten Film Series: Since 2015, Trinity United Church (at the Nanaimo Ecumenical Centre) has hosted a 6-week Lenten Film Series, led by Phyllis Thompson and the Rev. Foster Freed. The 2020 Lenten Series will be a special one: a Retrospective of what Phyllis & Foster consider to be six of the most meaningful of the thirty movies they’ve chosen over the years. It’s also special because in June, Foster retires from full-time active ministry after thirty years, seven of which have been at TU. So the 2020 Lenten Film Series will be their last. Watch for forthcoming notices about this film series.
