Plan to attend Lunch and Learn this Sunday after the 10:30 service! We will be welcoming guests from St. Andrew’s United and Christ the King Roman Catholic churches because the presentation is of particular importance to those of us trying to meet the many needs of downtown people.
We will be hearing about the Community Drug Strategy for the City of Greater Sudbury.
The presenters will be: Brenda Stankiewicz, Public Health Nurse from the Sudbury and District Health Unit; Sheila Weber, Superintendent, Greater Sudbury Police Service and James Bolan, Living Potential.
The vision of this strategy to be presented is “A community working together to improve the health, safety and well-being of all individuals, families, neighbourhoods and communities by reducing the incidence of drug use and creating a society increasingly free of the range of harms associated with substance misuse”.
This strategy includes a role for the churches and, because our neighbourhood encompasses many of these issues, we need to know what is happening. Please take an hour after church on the 19th to have an inexpensive tasty lunch, get to socialize with some of our church neighbours, and become informed about important directions for our city.
Episcopal Visit: Bishop Stephen will be with us on Sunday April 26th for a Service of Confirmation. Sara Jane Perry will be confirmed and Anne Darrach will be baptised at the 10:30 service that morning.
Thank You! to all who cooked, cleaned, set up, tore down, ate, bid, and bought in the Men’s Supper and Almost Silent Auction. Just over $2000.00 was raised and will go directly into the operating budget.
Baby Nora: A reminder that Nora Masterson Spencer’s Grandma Sue and Mom, Elizabeth will be with us on April 26th to update us on her health. We are thankful that things are now going well, but there’s a long way to go yet!
Brick Brigade: On Thursday, April 23rd at 4, we will gather as a brick brigade to move bricks from beneath the stairwell in the Phoenix Hall to outside. Pizza and bevvies will be provided at 5:30. We need at least 12 hardy souls for this little project. Please speak to Peter Varpio or Fr Tim if you are able to come.
Ladies, Save the date! A spring fashion show is planned for the afternoon of April 25that 2:00. The $15 tickets are available after church on Sunday, from Gwen Chmilar at the church office and from members of the Fellowship committee. The styles from Fashion Fair in Lively are lovely, the door prizes are wrapped, and the lunch is planned. Get a group together, come and enjoy an afternoon of fellowship and fun. The proceeds are going towards the church’s operations.
Two Down, Three to Go: Have you got time to take on one of these small tasks? We are calling them “Mini Ministries”. Some parishioners are already embarked on one – one person takes away all our blue box recycling, one cares for all our indoor plants etc. Here are three small but important tasks for which we would value volunteers. More detailed description of these tasks is available on the table outside the office.
- Algoma Room Kitchen: Needs some TLC weekly – Friday afternoons, if possible.
- Children’s area in the church needs weekly review/tidying – pick your day!
- Phoenix Hall kitchen – team of 2 or 3 to keep this area stocked and orderly, on an “as needed” basis
Please speak to Barb Bolton, People’s Warden, for more information or to volunteer. Many hands make light work – and a more welcoming and safe environment!
