Ascension News for May 2, 2018


Sunrise! Sunset!  How awesome is Creation!

"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands." (Psalm 19)

*  Ascension Day is May 10!  Seven confirmation candidates will be receiving the sacrament of confirmation at 7 p.m. on that evening.  Please make every effort to share this special service with them.

*  Please note that there will be no service on Wednesday, May 9, at 9:30 a.m. Instead, the confirmation service (including Holy Eucharist) will be the following evening, Thursday,  May 10, when we celebrate Ascension Day. 

 Ladies, don't forget our roast beef dinner cooked and served by the Men's Service Club on Monday, May 7, at 6:30 p.m.  Entertainment by the Sweet Forget-Me-Nots follows! Check with Mildred at 368-8867 or Ena at 368-3230 to book your $20 ticket soon.

*  Vicki will soon be entering "retirement."  We all want to wish her farewell. So on Sunday, May 27, following the 11 a.m. service you are invited to a "Tea and Roast" - light lunch of sandwiches and cookies plus entertainment.  Come and enjoy!

*  Special thanks extended to all who contribute to our food boxes regularly.  This week aim to provide tea bags, sugar, and peanut butter. Some may wish to make a monetary donation - that would be appreciated also.

*  If you are a primary caregiver, caring for a loved one at home, you may like to attend the monthly "Caregivers Education and Support Program" on Tuesday, May 15, from 1:30 to 3 p.m. at the Park Place Community Centre in Mount Pearl.  The speaker will be focusing on "Communication Tips and Techniques for Dementia Care."  Please call 748-6485 to register.

*  Card players, the youth are counting on your support at a card game on May 15, at 7 p.m.  This is a fundraiser for those attending the CLAY conference in August.  Just $6 for an evening with your friends.  Cash prizes as per usual.  

*  As an outcome of the previous AGM, the vestry is forming a one-year committee to look at the financial viability of the Parish.  If you are interested in being a part of this committee, submit your name and phone number to the parish office as soon as possible for consideration.  If you have questions pertaining to this committee, please call John Gellately, the People's Warden, at 746-7190 or Rosalind Williams, the Rector's Warden, at 740-5552.

*  Captains, please remind your teams:  Counting Team # 3 and Sidespersons' Team #1.

That's it folks!
Enjoy this beautiful day!
Jean (On behalf of Ascension)
