PHOTOS FOR OUR WEBSITE
If you have any photos of goings-on at St Mary Magdalene – such as photos of our fabulous Lemonade on the Lawn event of two weeks ago – please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
There are a great many blanks on the sign up list for organizing our coffee time after the service. Please consider signing up to set out the coffee things and look after clean up. If you can provide a sweet to go with the coffee, great, but do nt feel you have to provide something special (and do not be intimidated by past offering when there have been left-over goodies of someone who really likes to bake!!). A package of store bought cookies is also great with coffee. It’s the fellowship that’s importatnt. Let’s see all the spaces on the sign up list filled up.
In order to better manage the Prayer List read out each week as part of the Prayers of the People, the list will now be edited each month. Begining July 1st, names on the Prayer List will be removed after one month unless we receive a request to continue praying for the person. We trust that this decision will not cause any concern. Please contact Pat Gasston or Jan Nicol to add names to the Prayer List or to request that prayers for an individual continue.
LAY PARTICIPATION ROSTER
At the end of this month we will begin drawing up the Lay Participation Roster for September until December. If you have not been included on the list for reading Scripture, presenting Prayers of the People or Ushering but would like to be OR if you have been included but no longer wish to participate, please contact Jan Nicol.
RIDE TO CHURCH
If you require a ride to church on Sunday morning or know of someone who does, please contact Pat Gasston who will make arrangements for transportation.
REBUILDING/REPAIRING THE DRIVEWAY
No doubt you will all be appreciating the dust-less drive up to the church. A local contractor has installed two culverts, dug shallow ditches and reshaped the roadway to encourage the water to run down the side of the driveway into the ditch on Georgina Point Road, and covered the surface of the driveway with ground asphalt. Needless to say, this was a large undertaking for our parish. We have received several donations for the driveway repair project but are still short of funds. Talk to Jim Moore if you would like to contribute.
