National Volunteer Week is this week, April 7 to April 13, with the theme "The Volunteer Factor - Lifting Communities."  Volunteers lead, coach, visit, help, give,  , .. and thus lift communities.  Also, when people volunteer, their spirits too are lifted as they see how their efforts have helped others.  That's the Volunteer Factor. May God Bless all volunteers!

* Next Sunday is Palm Sunday, so that means palm crosses have to be made this week.  Join us this evening after the evening service and help us to prepare them for Palm Sunday.  All are welcome!

*  Special thanks to all those who supported the Lenten outreach project.  The donations will be given to the Single Parent Association this week (the Executive Director was ill on Sunday and could not be there to accept them). 

* Thanks also extended to the organizers and supporters of the PWRDF Luncheon.  Funds raised totalled $935.

* And a thank you goes out as well from the youth to all those who donated the items for our four-legged furry friends.  

*  On Sunday, April 14, Godly Play will finish for the Easter break and resume on May 5.  The Godly Play teachers extend their wishes to all children and their families for a happy and blessed Easter.

*  The Lenten study continues today after this morning's Eucharist.  This session will focus on the 'worship' theme in The Way of Love series.  It will include a 'clear call to worship God and give thanks for all God's blessings.'  The Stations of the Cross will follow the study for those who would like to attend. As usual during Lenten, the Lenten Service will be this evening at 7 p.m.

*  Take note that the parish office will be closed on Friday, April 19, and Monday, April 22, in observance of Easter.

*  Please don't forget those who find it difficult to make ends meet.  Groceries are so expensive these days.  The food bank would like to find pasta sauce, toilet tissue, and tinned milk in our foodbox this  week.  Thanks so much!

*  On Palm Sunday, April 14, there will be Evening Service at 6:30 p.m.

*  Captains, please remind your teams:  Sidespersons' Team # 6, Counting Team # 4.

*  I presume you already noted that the deadline for submission of names of those loved ones to be remembered at Easter is Friday, April 19, if you want their name(s) to be included in the booklet which will be printed for April 28. Just place your donation in an envelope with the name(s) on the envelope and drop it off to the church office or place it in the weekly collection.  

Have a nice weekend!

Jean (on behalf of the Ascension)
