Ascension News for September 12, 2018



Here we are in the month of September, about to say goodbye to summer and to welcome the autumn season. Many of you are coming back to church following your summer vacation.  Welcome back!  However, our official 'Welcome Back Sunday' will be September 23, 2018.  

Although several of our regular events/ministries have not resumed yet, there are are few things that are important to note:

*  Mrs. Peggy Didham has accepted the position of Office Administrator of the Parish.  Throughout this month she will be receiving training and orientation.  Please feel free to drop by the office to welcome her.  

*  Junior Choir Practice will resume on Wednesday, September 12, from 5:45 to 6:15 p.m.  All young people nine years and older are welcome to join this choir.
*  Senior Choir Practice will also resume on Wednesday, September 12 beginning at 7 p.m.  New members are most welcome.  
*  Those who are seeking information regarding the start-up dates for our different organizations, our ministries, or confirmation registration, etc.  will be given all this information on Welcome Back Sunday.
 Ride for Refuge participants are preparing for the 'Ride for Refuge' on September 30.  Of course, Canon David is among those prepping for the event.  This year donations are for Canada Foodgrains Bank which supports food banks nationally.  The Canon is asking you to consider a donation, or even to ride or walk the 18 km from Cape Spear to the Anglican Cathedral.  This is such a worthy cause - addressing poverty and hunger in Canada.
(For more information, please contact the church office.)

*  There will be no evening service on Sunday, September 16.

*  On Tuesday, September 25, the Canadian Hard of Hearing Association (CHHA) will be hosting an information session and screening from 2 to 3:15 p.m. and 7 to 8:15 p.m. at the Ascension Auditorium.  If you would like to have a screening, please call 1-888-753-3224 before September 25.

*  The C.L.B. Mount Pearl Company has a recycling drive scheduled for October 20.  This is an advance notice as they would like you to please start saving your recyclables for them.  Thank you so much!

*  Captains, please remind your teams:  Counting Team # 6, and Sidespersons' Team # 2.
That's it, folks!  Hope you are enjoying the lovely weather!  

Jean (On behalf of Ascension)
