Selinde is back from holidays and looking forward to seeing everyone on Sunday!  Kat is heading off to see her family overseas, and will be back in the office October 8th. Meanwhile, Shirley Bays will be helping out in the office on Wednesday mornings.

The Memorial Board in our Memorial Garden is reaching completion. Heartfelt thanks to Fred and his helpers for creating a thing of beauty! And thank you to those with green thumbs who are keeping the gardens looking so beautiful.

Turn to the light!  We have new, energy efficient dimmable lighting in the hall.  Thank you to all who donated towards the cost of replacing the lighting and to Don and Graham for their work installing it.

The Updated Parish Photo Directory is complete.  Pick up your copy this Sunday in the Hall. Suggested donation is $10.00. Thank you to all who were involved in pulling it together. No small feat!

The Roster Board has openings… please consider offering your talents by reading or serving on a Sunday. Thank you.

Please pray for your parish family. We have several people facing challenges.

If you are out shopping….our kitchen is running low on coffee.  It would be grand if someone could pick up a can.  Many thanks.
