Thought of the Week

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it - always.”

~  Mahatma Gandhi  ~

 

   

Announcements

CONGRATULATIONS! Reverend Ann has been appointed Regional Dean of Greater Wellington, effective October 12, for a three year period.


NEW! Follow us on Twitter @stjamesfergus


Living Faith Study Group will meet in the Witcher Room at 7pm on Tuesday, October 24th to study Acts 9:1-31; "the account of Saul's Conversion"  providing a great opportunity to examine "conversion" and the related call to serve Christ and community near and afar. All are welcome.


Wednesday Morning Prayer at 10am. All are welcome.


OASIS | Spiritual Practice for Living [2nd and 4th Wednesday] at 7pm. This Wednesday, October 25th, there will be a Taizé Service. A prayer service consisting of meditative singing and periods of silence in order to reach a contemplative state. All members of the community are welcome to join in this practice of music and meditation.


Celebration of Ministry: On Sunday, October 29th at 4 pm, the Rev’d Naomi Kabugi will be inducted as Rector of St. Alban’s, Acton. All are invited to celebrate this new ministry. This will be Rev Ann’s first service in her new role as Regional Dean, a position she will hold for 3 years in this area.


RE|CHURCH is a great opportunity to explore with other church teams just what makes things happen in community. The Right Reverend Jenny Andison, Bishop Suffragan in the Diocese of Toronto, will be leading a day exploring what the common characteristics are of churches that are growing numerically and spiritually. November 4th, 9:30 to 3:00 at St. Thomas’ Church, St. Catharines. Cost is $20/person. Rev Ann would love to have a group of interested parishioners attend this day with her. Please put your name on the sign-up sheet at the back if you are interested. Speak to Rev Ann for more info.


Remembrance Sunday will be observed on November 5th at our 10:30 am service. This will be followed by the Outreach Pasta Lunch.


Annual Outreach Pasta Lunch for the funding of St James Adopt-a-Family at Christmas programme will be held immediately after the 10:30am service on November 5th in the Butterfly Hall. It's a time of enjoyment and fellowship for a great cause. There is a sign-up list at the back of the church for contributions of salads or pastas and there will be a free-will offering basket at the lunch for those able to contribute. 


Gift Cards are ordered the first Sunday of the month.  Profit this year so far is $1,896.40. What a great fundraiser and we are not spending any more money than we usually spend!  Our next order date is Sunday, November 5, 2017.


The ACW is asking for your help in collecting new items for making up gift baskets to sell at our Christmas Marketplace on Saturday, November 25th. A basket for donations is in the narthex. Thank you.


Centre Wellington Food Bank needs back to school supplies: children's juice boxes and fruit/pudding cups. Please put your donations in the baskets in the narthex. Thank you.
