PARISH NEWS - 13 September 2020
RETURNING TO IN-PERSON WORSHIP
This week a letter was emailed (and mailed hard copy to those without email) detailing our plans to start our reopening process in the ‘Amber Stage’ with two weekly services (Sunday at 930am and Wednesday at 11am) beginning on October 4th. Please take time to read the information carefully. If you did not receive the information please email the parish office. We give thanks to the re-opening team who have been meeting every week and working hard to ensure we can reopen safely.
MASKS! MASKS! MASKS!
Masks, masks, masks! We have sold over $800 in masks but we have only just begun!
We have children’s masks, small, medium and large ninja style and pleated masks!
We have special masks more comfortable for those with hearing aids and masks made for those with latex allergies. There are thanksgiving masks, Halloween masks and Christmas masks.
Some for everyone on your shopping list- a great thank you gift, thinking about you gift or Christmas gifts.
We have them in colours to match your wardrobe.
If people in the church each sell a few we will make our target of $10,000...
Custom orders welcome.
We need cotton fabric, elastic, thread, and people to sell masks.
If you would like to be involved call Lynn at 289-239 9341 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

PRAYER FOR THE WEEK:
O my God, teach my heart where and how to seek You, where and how to find You. You are my God and You are my all and I have never seen You. You have made me and remade me, You have bestowed on me all the good things I possess, Still I do not know You. I have not yet done that for which I was made. Teach me to seek You. I cannot seek You unless You teach me or find You unless You show Yourself to me. Let me seek You in my desire, let me desire You in my seeking. Let me find You by loving You, let me love You when I find You.
Saint Anselm of Canterbury
