Fall Bazaar Revisited: Sunday, Dec. 3rd

Fall Bazaar Revisited:  Sunday, Dec. 3rd following the church services we will have the remaining Handicrafts and Country Store items for sale.  Our Total to date is $6,750. We are wondering if $7,000. Is possible?  Please take a moment to have a look and see if you missed a treasure the first time around. I would like to thank all the volunteers this year for their support that made my job so much easier but a special Thank You  to Joanne Walton, Brenda Binns, Sylvia Bradley and Mel Moore just to mention a few.  You went above and beyond! This is also the time to mention my retirement as Bazaar coordinator.  After many years it is time for new and creative ideas and more energetic leadership.  This is not an onerous task as there are many people willing to help but events need a leader.  I’m putting out a request to the total Parish to consider taking on this responsibility. The Bazaar is not only a major fund raiser but it is the largest event we have that involves the entire parish community. The bazaar is always a time of fun and fellowship but also a time of deepening relationship with people that we may not always have contact with.  It would be a shame to not have it continue.  Please prayerfully consider this volunteer position.

All Souls Night – Thursday November 2, 7:30 to 9:30 pm

Pray for the souls of the world In the darkness of the turning of the year, we remember those who have died.  Come enter a sacred space and lift them up to God. Whether there are recent losses for you among family or friends, or whether you want to honour victims of violence and disaster in our world, here is a time to remember and to hope.  We light our candles against the darkness and proclaim that love is stronger than death, and that peace and justice will prevail. “But the souls of the righteous are in the hands of God, and no torment will ever touch them.  In the eyes of the foolish they seem to have died, and their departure from us was thought to be a disaster, and their going from us to be their destruction, but they are at peace.”  Wisdom 3: 1-3     In the darkness of our times, pray for the souls of the world Drop in to the church 7:30 to 9:30 pm Walk on our indoor labyrinth Light a candle and add a name or prayer to a wall of remembrance Experience Sung Holden Evening Prayer 9-9:30 pm st. john the apostle church 2208 St. Johns Street Port Moody, BC 604-936-7762 Sunday services 8:30 & 10 am
