Camp Brookwood is preparing for another great summer of camp for many children. For $200.00 a young child can have that experience. Some people have sponsored kids to Brookwood in memory of a beloved grandchild. Some have sponsored kids in honour of a recent marriage in the parish. Can you put something into the offering directed to the camp or its campers?

We count on Brookwood.  Brookwood counts on us.

It’s easier to fill Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes when seasonal items become available at a good price. Suggested are combs/brushes, sun hats and wind-up flashlights.

The parish has received bequests under the will of the late Doris Kennedy Gartley Scott (1921-2016) of Centreville and several others, in this case to support the St. John’s Cemetery fund. When writing your own will, do not leave money to a specific congregation as individual congregations are not incorporated. The way to handle it is to leave money to the parish for the purpose of supporting a particular congregation or house of worship, if that is what you want. For Camp Brookwood, you would leave money to the Diocesan Synod of Fredericton for the use of Camp Brookwood.

To add a name (with permission) to the parish prayer list, speak to Pat Margison (328-8146) or Wendell Parkinson (325-9519).
