Morning Prayer: 

Rev. Rob will be celebrating morning prayer each Wednesday and Friday mornings at 8:30 a.m. and invites anyone wishing to deepen their relationship with God to join him in the church sanctuary.

Student Mission Trip: On April 29th, a group of young leaders and disciples (with Colin MacDonald) will be embarking on an adventure to learn about missions, leadership and most importantly discipleship.  Their team will be spending a week in inner-city Boston serving those in need and exploring why God calls us so profoundly to serve the poor. It is Colin’s sincere hope that this first leadership trip will become an annual event as we seek to invest in and grow young disciples.  They need our help!  They are seeking support from parishes to bring this trip together and invest in these young leaders as the   Bishops charge has called us to do.   If you are able to help financially and by including us in your prayers it would be greatly appreciated.  Please see Colin’s letter on the WAM bulletin board for more information.

GEORGE’S CAFÉ is serving up a hot meal this Sunday, at 4:30.   Serving the Lord, by serving our community is a sure way to put a dent in the “winter blues”. Hope to see you there!

Struggling readers need a hand

Looking for a way to make a difference in the community and in the life of a child? Bishop David suggests ELF — Elementary Literacy Friends — a supplementary reading achievement program in most schools in the province. You can visit ELF’s website and sign up as a volunteer. After training and a criminal background check, you choose the school and commit to one Grade 2 child for ten weeks. Each week you meet with your student twice, for one hour of reading time. Help combat low literacy rates in the province and make a positive impact on a child. Get started here: https://www.elfnb.com/get-involved/volunteer/
