Ascension News for October 10, 2018


Special thanks to all those who brought items and decorated our church for Harvest Thanksgiving, items which help display our thankfulness to God in a visible way.  I trust you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. 

*  The goods which are displayed in the church will be for sale during the Card Party which will take place on Tuesday, October 23, at 7:30 p.m. in the church's auditorium.  With just $6 and a little extra for the sale, you can have a lovely evening with your parish friends.  Prizes are as usual - don't forget your cards and baskets!

*  Also during this Thanksgiving Season, we will have our traditional Jiggs Dinner on Tuesday, October 16.  You can purchase/book your tickets for the dinner ($20 for adults, $10 for children under 12) by calling the church office or dropping by between 9 and noon today.  Only one serving at 6 p.m. but booked takeout dinners will be available for pickup between 5 and 5:30 p.m.  Deadline for all tickets is today!!

*  Youth, your next get together is on October 19!  A bowling evening has been planned - location will be announced later.

*  Thanks for your donations to the food bank via our boxes in the foyers.  This week they are hoping for tins of tuna, ham, chicken, pasta sauce, and Kraft dinner (any brand)!  Monetary donations to the food hamper fund are also appreciated.

*  Just a quick reminder to please continue saving your recyclables as the Mount Pearl CLB's recycling drive is on Saturday, October 20.  Also, as a fundraiser to help with the cost of activities and the cost of sending the children to camp, the Mount Pearl CLB will be selling boxes of 24 chips and cheesies for $6.50 per box.  If you are interested, please contact the commanding officer, Jamie Hill at

*  The Diocesan Synod 2018 (November 8, 9 and 10) in Foxtrap, CBS, is still in need of hosts for Synod Billets.  Please contact Elizabeth Crisby at Synod Office at 709-576-6697 or email if you are interested in helping or if you would like more information.

*  Evening Services will resume this Sunday, October 14, at 6:30 p.m.

*  Our Fall Bible Study started last evening at 7 p.m. and the same Bible Study will be held this morning following the 9:30 a.m. Eucharist.  It's a great opportunity to learn, to share, to meet new friends, and to enjoy a cup of tea.  Come and see!

*  Just a reminder for those interested in assisting with the Every Member Visitation that there will be a training session on Saturday, October 13, from 10 a.m. to noon.  You can sign up at the office; also, feel free to contact Canon Burrows for more information.

*  For those who have been attending the Ascension Cafe previously, and for those who plan to attend for the first time, it will begin again this Sunday, October 14, following the 8:30 a.m. Holy Communion.  Come and enjoy the fellowship and toasted homemade bread and other treats.  

*  Captains, please remind your teams:  Sidespersons' Team # 6, and Counting Team # 3 (this team switched with #2 for this Sunday only).

Have a great week!
Jean (On behalf of Ascension)
