2016 Church Calendars: Only 12 are left. Be sure to get yours soon!

Looking for a resource to use during the Advent season? is a Global Advent Calendar. Simply click the link and then sign up. When you sign up you will receive a daily meditation from the Brothers of the Society of Saint John Evangelist, an Anglican/Episcopal monastic community.

December 6th is going to be a VERY busy day before, during and after the 10:30 service!  Here’s what you need to know and to bring that day!

  • Items you plan to donate to the Christmas Market
  • Some cash and a shopping bag to put items in that you buy at the Christmas Market!
  • A White Gift or two to be donated to the youth at Sudbury Action Centre for Youth for Christmas (called White Gifts as they are typically wrapped in white tissue paper, but unwrapped gifts of toiletry items, warm mitts, scarves, undies and socks etc. also VERY welcome! (NO Mouthwash, Hand Sanitizer, Razors etc.)
  • The annual Christmas Pageant will take place during the service and is a joint effort with Church of the Ascension.
  • Your favorite lunch dish for the Pot Luck to follow the service and Christmas Market. Please bring a little extra as we will have guests from Ascension.

The Women’s Bible Study Group: will be visiting the Sudbury Hindu Temple on Monday, December 7th at 11:30am.  If you would like to join in this “outing” please speak to Barb Bolton before December 4th.  Planning ahead:  A visit to the Sudbury Mosque will occur on Monday, January 11th.

Christmas Decorating: Under the able direction of Nancy Cresswell, we will decorate the nave for Christmas on Sunday, December 20, immediately after the 10:30 service. Please bring a bag lunch. If you plan to come, please let Nancy know.

Christmas Communions: If you are, or someone you know is shut-in and wishing to celebrate Holy Communion before Christmas, please contact our Pastoral Concerns chair, Lorraine Campbell or Fr. Tim to make arrangements.

Christmas Office Hours: The office will be closed from December 24th, 2015 until January 4th, 2016. Regular office hours will resume on January 5th, 2016.

Wednesday Eucharists and Bible Study: will have their final gatherings on December 16th and will resume on January 6, 2016. Please join us at 10:00am or 12:15pm.

Syrian Refugees: Many of you may be wondering if Epiphany is going to do anything about supporting Syrian refugees. At Parish Council last week it was felt that the parish could not commit to funding $24,000 or more to settle a refugee family, given the major commitment we have made to funding our re-building campaign. In addition, our diocese does not have a sponsorship agreement with the federal government through PWRDF.

However council did approve the initiative to support our neighbouring churches, notably St. Andrew’s United and Church of the Ascension in their efforts to sponsor families.  We have committed to soliciting individual donations of money to this effort and to soliciting gifts in kind and services to assist these families.

If anyone wants to make a financial contribution to this effort you can make out a cheque to St. Andrew’s United Church with the notation –“Refugee Support”. Left in the office it will be forwarded to St. Andrew’s, which will provide an income tax receipt.

Parish Council has authorized me and Nick Farkouh to act as liaison representatives to St. Andrew’s and Ascension. If you have any questions or comments please contact Robin Bolton.

Please consider prayerfully what your contribution might be. We should not let this major humanitarian challenge go unanswered.

Supporting Syrian Refugees: St. Andrew’s United Church and the Islamic Association of Sudbury are co-hosting an international dinner on Sunday December 6 at 6:00 p.m. on the second floor of St. Andrew’s. We are promising an evening of excellent international cuisine and fellowship and we are hoping to raise enough funds to sponsor another family.  Tickets are $50 per person with 100% of the proceeds going directly to a refugee family. Tickets are available at St. Andrew’s Church office at 705-674-0721.
