PARISH NEWS - 14 February 2023



SERVICES AND GATHERINGS IN THE SEASON OF EPIPHANY

SUNDAY, February 19th, 2023 – 10:00 a.m. TRANSFIGURATION SUNDAY. We hope to see you in person. If you are unable to attend, the service is live streamed. For links to the service and the order of service please visit St. James at: stjamesdundas.ca or the St. James Facebook page.

WEDNESDAY – COMPLINE – 8.30 p.m. Compline is a short service of night prayer. The heart of Compline is the recitation of several psalms. There is a short reading from scripture, intercession, and time for reflection. It is a beautiful way to close out an active day. Compline is offered by St. James’ through Facebook to bring the community together. If you cannot join live, the service is available afterwards on St. James’ Facebook channel.

Flowers for the Altar

Giving altar flowers for a Sunday service is a special way to remember a loved one, give thanks for the blessings in your life, and brighten the lives of “shut-ins” and parishioners who are unwell. Please consider providing flowers at an upcoming service over the next few months. Contact the office at stjamesundas@outlook.com or 905-627 -1424


STAMPS FOR LEPROSY

Mail received the old-fashioned way (with a stamp on it!) can be used to help others in need. All that is required is to cut around the stamp, leaving a small border, then drop them in the basket in the narthex. Stamps are collected and sent to the Leprosy Mission.


REFLECTIONS EXHIBIT

Bob Morrow’s photo exhibit: ‘REFLECTIONS’ continues for two more weeks! Please see the attached poster for all the details! Proceeds from art sales will support St. James Outreach projects.
