She died in early October and her funeral was held in her native land of Nigeria. This is an opportunity for those in Sudbury who knew her to remember her and say their farewells together. If you knew Debra and would like to attend please consider this your invitation to join in the service.
Scott and Ryan are moving! Some of you might have met Scott and Ryan, two new attenders at our parish. Scott and Ryan have thrown themselves into life here, volunteering at OOTC and coming to various events and I am glad that God has sent them our way. Scott and Ryan have found an apartment and need some help getting furniture for their new place. Can you help them? Speak to me and I’ll introduce you and/or give you contact information.
PWRDF News: To stay up to date with PWRDF, be sure to visit their website, www.pwrdf.org regularly and check in with our Deanery PWRDF rep, Mary Donato (that she’s also a member of the parish should make that pretty easy!).

Thank You! Kudos to all those who volunteered to make the Sudbury Potters’ Guild’s “Soup’s On” successful – those who made cookies, made soup, or did a shift of serving or doing copious dishwashing! The Guild was very pleased with the sale and the net profit for the church’s operating fund will be about $3000. A VERY special thank you to Carol Bohren who coordinated all the food and other details for the event. She was amazing!
