We are all invited to celebrate Bishop Logan’s retirement and ministry in our diocese. Bishop Logan had a special place in his heart for St. Mary’s, as it was because of his market research as a seminarian that St. Mary’s came into being. The live-stream celebration is THIS FRIDAY, October 23, beginning at 7:00pm. Everyone is invited. You can watch the live-stream at: www.bc.anglican.ca/live or on Facebook Live
Wednesdays HUB: A group gathers in the hall for prayer and reflection every Wednesday at noon. Join us! We sit, masked, 6 feet apart and simply enjoy being in each other’s company.
We will celebrate Remembrance Day the Sunday before – November 8, 2020 – at the usual time in church, and then on the day itself - Wednesday, November 11 - there will be a short ceremony at noon in the Memorial Garden. Dress warmly! Our regular Wednesday gathering will happen directly after the ritual.
Thank you to the energetic, hardworking crew that came together on Friday, October 16th to clean up and burn all the windfall and deadwood on the property!
The Pet Memorial Garden will hold its first communal burial on Sunday, November 1st at 1pm. Please let KAT in the office know if you want to bury the ashes of your pet at that time.
Remember, call KAT by midday on Thursday to get your name on the list to attend Sunday service.
Have you subscribed to, or attended, a theatre/musical show online? Have you recently watched an AMAZING movie? Share your entertainment ideas with others in the parish…. We need recommendations for how to enjoy the long, dark, cold nights that are coming. Val and Clair recently attended an on-line concert by Joelle Rabu at the Port Theatre and really enjoyed it. Selinde and KAT watched My Octopus Teacher (Netflix) and can highly recommend it. Remember, you can attend concerts, lectures, courses anywhere in the world!
And a chuckle for the day…
A Sunday-school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her 5- and 6-year olds. After explaining the commandment to 'Honour thy father and thy mother,' she asked, 'Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?' Without missing a beat, one little boy answered, "Thou shall not kill."
