      • Potluck Supper: On Thursday, February 22, we are hosting a potluck supper with live entertainment provided by Jacobs Passage. We ask that you take a tag from the board at the entrance of the church and prepare that dish to bring along. Supper will be at 6 p.m. All are invited to join in this time of fellowship. Hope to see you there!
      • Senior Choir: We have resumed our Choir practices on Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. We invite you to join this ministry if you are interested. New members are always welcome! Afternoon Card Party: The next afternoon card party is Monday, February 5 at 2:00 p.m. The cost is $6 per person. Please bring along your own cards and baskets. All are welcome.
      • Community Supper Take-out Meal: This is a hot, free take-out meal. The meal will be served from the entrance of the Church of the Good Shepherd on Richard Nolan Drive, on Wednesday, February 7, 2024. If you, or someone you know, could use a hot meal, please come by and pick one up.  Meals will be available from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m.
      • Church Envelopes: Don’t forget to pick up your 2024 church envelopes at the entrance of the church, if you haven’t already done so. Also, if you are able to deliver any to friends or neighbours, we would be most appreciative. Thank you.
      • Church Calendars: Calendars are $6 each and available for purchase after the 11 a.m. service each Sunday and from the church office, Monday to Friday.
      • Lenten Outreach Project: This Lent, we have partnered with St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank. With food insecurity on the rise in this province, your donations of food items are greatly appreciated. However, there are other items needed to help individuals maintain a home outside of food items, such as cleaning supplies, etc. This Lent, we will be collecting these items. You may choose to donate some of the items listed here or other cleaning supplies you feel are necessary. St. Margaret’s Boat will once again be utilized to collect your items. St. Margaret of Scotland is chiefly remembered for her generosity to the less fortunate of Scotland. She ensured relief was provided for the homeless, the hungry and the orphaned. Along with her title as Queen of Scotland was the greater title for a Christian of “Helper of the Poor”. We will present your generous donations to a representative from The St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank at the Palm Sunday Service. Thank you for your support of this worthwhile Lenten Outreach Project.
