A service is still being oﬀered weekly via video with Rev. Alan Naylor presiding. St. Mary's still has ongoing expenses to enable the Church to operate. These include salaries, hydro, telephone/internet services, oﬃce expenses and maintainance of the buildings and grounds, to name a few. We would appreciate receiving your support to help St. Mary’s continue to operate in a more positive financial position.
We need a coordinator for care of Pet Memorial Garden plants, especially having someone water the young plants over the summer months. Contact Elaine for more information.

About the Outreach and Recycling Initiative
The church shake roof is going to be replaced in the next few months. It was suggested that the old shakes could be sold for kindling, woodworking, birdhouses, crafts, etc. to save them going to the landfill. A communication has been made with St. Mary/St. Mark, a church parish in Yukon which needs funds to make repairs to their roof. We hope to raise approximately $400 for their project selling the shakes by donation. Shakes will be sold as is; just load them into your vehicle! We would appreciate feedback to know if you, family and friends would be interested. Please reply to the office by Thursday, March 25th.
Trefor Williams has developed a GUIDED MEDITATION ON THE EUCHARIST for MAUNDY THURSDAY April 1st, 2021 at 10:30am. During this Lent and for quite a bit longer, we have been deprived of the actual eucharist. This guided meditation is a way for us to get closer to God, it is not meant to be a substitute for the actual Eucharist. It is something you can do on your own, spending as much time as you want. Watch for a video link in the March 31 NOTICES.
And your chuckle for the day…
