Ascension News (June 25, 2021)

AdminChurch eNews

May God’s Blessings be with you this summer as you enjoy lovely weather, the beauties of creation, and the company of family and friends.

This will be my last regular enews until September.  However, if there are any special messages for the parish, they will be sent via Ascension enews.

  • The 11 a.m. Sunday worship will continue throughout the summer months.  Even though our regular office administrator will be away for the summer, there will be a person in the office for you to register as usual.  The service will continue to be live-streamed.  Next Sunday, June 27, there will be the Welsh Eucharist.
  • Please note that the Prayers of the People, from July 4 to September 15, will not be printed.  However, you may still submit names to include on the Ascension Prayer Cycle or to be remembered with the deceased at any time by contacting the church office.
  • From June 28 until September 3, our auditorium will be rented by Max Athletics.  As a result, our bathroom facilities downstairs will not be available for use during the Sunday services.  Our washroom upstairs will be available for use during the services as usual.
  • Just a reminder of the Cemetery Commemoration Service from the Anglican Cathedral on July 11 at 7 p.m.  This service is not open to the public but can be viewed via the Diocesan and Cathedral Facebook sites.  Rev’d Nancy March will officiate at the service.
  • It is hoped that funds will continue be raised for the Pandemic Appeal during the summer months.  It is used to supplement the ministry of the Parish.   Thanks to all who have donated so far.
  • The CLB Friday lunch specials continue.  However, to take advantage of the offer, you must pre-order by Thursdays at 11 a.m. by calling 722-1737. That means if you want one or two or more for tomorrow, you must order soon; and if you order five or more, it’s free delivery!
  • The call for readers is still on!!  If you are interested in reading at the 11 a.m. services on any of the following dates, please contact the office at [email protected] or call 368-5693: July 18, August 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, September 5, 12.  Thanks!

Have a wonderful summer!  Take care and stay safe! 
God Bless,
Jean (On behalf of the Ascension)
