NEW! SOCK IT TO US!
You are invited to ‘do up’ a sock for a needy man or woman. Start with a pair of socks. Fill one of the socks with any of the following suggested items plus the second sock, and bring it with you to the Spring Conference:
Toiletries: soap bar in container; travel-size shampoo, deodorant; hand lotion; kleenex; bandaids; toothpaste and brush; shaving cream; brush and comb; non-disposable razor; nail clipper.
Miscellaneous: small flashlight; notepad; underpants; packages of hot chocolate or cup of soup mix.
You are invited to add a hand-written card with a special message from you. What to say? Try: “Thinking of you”, “my prayer goes with you”, “may you find peace and love in your life”, “God’s blessing on you”, “you are loved”.
Please identify your sock for a man or woman.
The Anglican Women's Retreat - Gratitude: A Way of Being - was held at Queen's House of Retreats, September 18-20, 2015. At the Saturday night Evening Prayer service the women who attended the retreat made an offering of gifts for the Hospital Ministry - baby blankets, prayer shawls and other useful items like scarfs for cancer patients.

Our theme speaker The Rev. Dr. Jessica Latshaw thanked the women for the gifts and expressed her appreciation for their support.
ANGLICAN CHURCH WOMEN SUNDAY, SEPT. 13!
Sunday, September 13th has been declared Anglican Church Women Sunday for our Diocese. A first! The Bishop said in part of his letter sent out earlier this month to Incumbents,
Wardens and Contacts:
"The ministry of the ACW is not something for the past. Women today play a big part in our churches and we want to thank them and honour them. Remember that ACW is for all Anglican women faithfully serving our communities.”
Let's do our part to support other Anglican women and give thanks for God's inspiration and guidance to women in the past and in the present. If asked to take a part in the service, let's be willing to do the job. That Sunday is a special time to recall and celebrate the ministries and contributions we have the opportunity to do which make a difference in our communities.
Sun., September 13, is the day to gather with our Anglican sisters to honour women who serve Christ with their lives, being The Bread of Christ for others.
