As the blooming of daisies heralds strawberry season, so an abundance peonies signals graduation time. Here are some of 2024’s crop of young achievers with their parish connection: Avery Findlater (Judy Clark's grandson); Curtis Black (Sandra & Ronnie's son); Libby Carpenter (Greg & Cindy's daughter and Ralph/Rosanne's granddaughter); Brady Durling (Shelley (Martin) Durling's son); Dana Boyer (Theresa (Martin) Boyer’s daughter).

New Brunswick’s Christian Ashram meets at Brown’s Flat (lower St. John River) on 8–11 August. This year’s guest evangelist is Gordon Thompson, formerly rector of Newcastle. For details, see New Brunswick Christian Ashram (nbca.ca) and speak with Cindy Derksen.

The parish reporter was busy at Holy Trinity last Sunday, and photos below show some of the bloomers (paternal and otherwise) at the service.

 

Lives of the Saints – What time is church?

19 August 1973: “I went bird watching this morning, thinking that Church service was at eleven. Coming down the hill, I saw cars down there so I hastened down. Late for the sermon. But that nice Bell family was there so I was glad I went. Leisurely dinner outside. Warm. Sat for over two hours with camera focussed on the hummingbird feeder."

The public is invited to drop in to the St. John's Parish Centre on the last Thursda of each month between 10:00 AM and 12:00 PM (noon).
