If our hearts can only be satisfied by the living God, then how do we open ourselves to God to be nourished and fed by him?

Elmond Jean is a Haitian living and working in the Dominican Republic. Pat met and worked with him in the spring of 2006; while volunteer teaching in Haitian villages in the D.R. His genial and caring personality as well as his deep hope and Christian faith was evident from the beginning. Shortly after the earthquake in 2010 he launched the idea of a school on the north-east coast and called it Noah’s Ark; with the mission statement of “Giving Children a Chance for Change.” He is respected and loved by many.
Our friends at CAFFI are searching for a housemate to live with the three residents at their new house in Caledon. If you’re interested, check-out their ad. If you know of someone who might be interested, please share it with them.
As many of you may recall, we as a parish vestry agreed to begin work restoring our bell tower and the corporation signed a contract with Gillanders construction. Initially the construction team planned to begin work in April, however the pandemic delayed that. Now that restrictions have been lifted, the firm would like to begin work as contractually agreed. They will begin their work in the next couple of weeks. God-willing, we may be able to use our bell the first Sunday we are back in September!
You can still contribute to the bell tower fund and support the restoration fo the tower by visiting our Canada Help’s page and selecting bell tower fund or you can mail-in your donation or drop it off at the office. After many years of silence, it will be wonderful for us to let us voice be heard throughout town.
