Special Vestry: Sunday at 11:15 a.m.
Just a reminder we have a special vestry this Sunday.
The wardens and I received the final estimate for the bell tower repair and restoration. We are confident the estimate is reasonable and would like to begin the process for securing diocesan approval of the project.
Given the time-sensitive nature of this project, and our need to receive approval from the diocesan trusts committee and diocesan council, we need to have our special vestry this month.
Therefore, today we will have a special vestry meeting immediately after the 10:00 morning service. I strongly encourage you to join us.
The agenda and materials for the meeting are available both online and in paper format near the entrances. Please do not hesitate to speak with the wardens and me about any questions or concerns you may have.
Tuesday Eucharist at 7:00 p.m.
Join us this Tuesday for a simple celebration of Holy Communion and share conversation about the upcoming Sunday readings. All are welcome to join us!
Davis Centre Eucharist on Wednesday, August 28 at 2:00 p.m.
Mark your calendars for the Davis Centre Eucharist this Wednesday, August 28, at 2:00 p.m. For the past several months a number of us have shared Holy Communion with our friends at the Davis Centre. It is a great way for us to extend our Sunday celebration to those who are unable to join us each week. All are welcome to attend.
Advisory Board: September 3, 7:30 p.m.
Parish leaders and members vested in our parish’s growth are invited to our first Advisory Board meeting on September 3 at 7:30 p.m. Join us for Eucharist at 7:00 and for the meeting immediately afterwards. The agenda will be posted soon; if you have items to add, please email Ruth.
Back to Church Sunday: September 8
I hope all of you enjoyed some wonderful holidays this summer. Now that the academic year is abut to begin, I invite you to join us for church on Sunday, September 8. Invite friends, neighbours, and family to join us and share the good news of Christ Church with all.
Thank You for Your Help!
Finally, I want to thank those of you who helped with the funeral of John Doughty a couple of weeks ago. I received a wonderful note from the family and they expressed their gratitude for all that we have done. Your care and support reminded me of what makes this church such a welcoming and gracious community.
