Please remember the Food Bank when you shop. They especially need pastas (dry and tinned), soups, cereal & luncheon meat. Next deliveries: Holy Trinity (16 September); St. John’s (23 September); St. Mark’s (30 September)

Contributions to the Food Bank, the Compassion Fund, Camp Brookwood, Operation Christmas Child, the Haiti mission and the Seafarers’ Mission [details soon] are not add-ons to our parish mission. Justice for the poor and vulnerable was central to Jesus’ mission and he was clear that it should be central to our mission.

The busy ACW in the neighbouring parish of WWPA is collecting coats for free distribution late this fall. They are looking for a variety of coats, hats, scarves and snowsuits, from toddlers to adults. Contact Wilma at 278-3229 or Roberta at 324-8810.

The Compassion Fund helps us respond to immediate needs in our neighbourhoods and has been very active of late. Please assist.

It’s easier to fill Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes when seasonal items become available at a good price. Suggested are candles and school supplies.

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).
