Belated "Happy Mother's Day" to all Mothers, Grandmothers, about-to-be mothers, and those who Mother.  I do hope you had a wonderful day on Sunday with your family!

*  Special thanks to all those who made Ladies' Night such a tremendous success.  The meal was delicious!  We all felt very special to be served by the men of the Men's Service Club who were 'dressed to the nines!"  Emoji  Our 'Sweet-Forget-Me-Nots' deserve great praise also for their most enjoyable entertainment. (Why not check out the parish facebook for some pictures of the event!)

*  It's so wonderful when we see our food-bank boxes brimming with groceries.  Thanks for all your donations.  This week they are hoping for peanut butter, crackers, and cereal.  

*  PWRDF is celebrating 60 years of commitment and connection this year.   The three Anglican Dioceses in Newfoundland and Labrador are hosting a day of sharing and learning for friends of PWRDF on Saturday, June 8, from 9 to 3:30 p.m. at All Saints Anglican church hall on 419 Conception Bay Highway.  There is no cost, just your time and love for PWRDF.  To register, please contact Archdeacon Charlene by phone, 2371877, or by email

*  Captains, please remind your teams:  Sidespersons' Team # 6, and Counting Team # 1.

*  Do you plan to be part of the inside yard sale taking place in the church auditorium on Saturday, June 1, from 9 to 12 noon?  Remember it is just $20 per table and $10 for an extra one.  To book, please call Brian at 682-1844, Rosalind at 221-8400, or email rpwilliams

*  The next evening service will be on Sunday, May 26 at 6:30 p.m., which is the service of Confirmation for the youth of our parish.  Please hold the candidates in your prayers as they continue to prepare for this important step on their spiritual journey.
As you know Victoria Day is a Canadian statutory holiday celebrated on the Monday preceding May 25; it honours Queen Victoria's birthday which was May 24, 1819.  So the Victoria Day holiday is Monday, May 20.  Enjoy, and have a safe weekend! 

God Bless,
Jean (On behalf of Ascension)
