Welcome to Our Guest Preacher
Please extend a warm welcome to our guest preacher, the Reverend Chris Dow. Ordianed a priest in October, 2013, Rev. Dow is a priest of the Diocese of Saskatchewan. We welcome him to our community and look forward to hearing him preach today.
Corn Roast Today
I also want to welcome all visitors today to our annual Corn Roast. All are invited to join us immediately after our 10:00 Eucharist for good food, fun, and fellowship.
Weekly Tuesday Evening Eucharist
A reminder that we are now celebrating a midweek Eucharist on Tuesday evenings at 7:00. The Tuesday evening service is a wonderful opportunity to pray together, reflect upon the Scriptures, and share the Sacrament in a relaxed, casual environment. Whether you missed church on Sunday or want some time for prayer, please do join us.
Parish Fresh Start Experience Last Week
Some of you may notice a large newsprint poster on the wall in our church hall. Several of us gathered together on Saturday, September 15, for an engaging and deeply moving reflection on our parish history. One of the products of our time together is the poster and the notes of major events in the life of the parish. Please take a look at the poster and perhaps add your own memories of the parish. We invite you to also mark down when you arrived to Christ Church above the name of the pastor who was here at that time.
Thank you to all who participated in the day and for those of you who volunteered to setup and prepare for the workshop.

All volunteers involved in parish ministry are required to participate in a mandatory sexual misconduct training. Please visit the parish mailbox for your letter of invitation. Those who do not participate will not be able to continue in their ministry after January 1, 2019. It is important we adhere to diocesan and national Church requirements in this matter. I am grateful for your participation in the workshop.
If you are unable to attend, there will be a training the week before at St. Jude’s, Brampton, on Saturday, October 20, from 11-12:30. If you have questions or concerns, please visit with me after liturgy or call the parish office.
Consecration of Bishop-Elect Andrew Asbil,
Please hold in your prayers Bishop-Elect Andrew Asbil as he will be consecrated bishop next Saturday at St. James Cathedral. I look forward to the liturgy and will share with you next Sunday the highlights of the ordination.
Blessings upon you this week and know of my prayers for all of you. I am grateful for all of you and appreciate your ministry and faithfulness.
