Ongoing Ministries

 

There are copies of the list of prayer items for the Diocese of Ibba on the bulletin board outside the church office. Feel free to take them to use in your prayers during the week.

 

Our diocesan website

has been completely rebuilt—go to dioath.ca to check it out. There is also a Lent letter from the bishop posted on the notice boards, with printed copies at the greeters’ table if you would like to take one home.

 

In light of a recent theft from the Fireside Room

we are asking everyone to be especially vigilant about ensuring that doors are locked when you leave the church. Please only leave a door unlocked when you are in that part of the building.

Wanda Laurin is offering to collect and sort bottles on an ongoing basis

with proceeds to go to the roof restoration project. Wanda will pick up

your bottles (phone her with your address, 624-2751) OR you can drop

them at her house (7418 98A street in the back alley parking area) OR you

can take them to the bottle depot and designate that they are for St. James

(this is the least profitable option, as the bottle depot will take a percentage 

for sorting)
