Dear members of St. Edward’s,
There is so much happening in the parish this weekend I thought it best to use my weekly email to highlight those things that will appear in the announcements.
Acolyte Festival, Saturday 6th October
The deadline for registration is rapidly approaching. If you wish to go and have not yet signed up, please do so – sign up sheet is in the narthex.
Randy and Rosie Westgate and Seth and Beth Hake will be repeating the presentation of their visit to Indonesia with the Mennonite Children’s Choir at the Men’s Breakfast on Saturday 29th September. The event is open to the congregation, however we need to know how many to cater for. If you wish to attend, please indicate on a sign-up sheet in the Narthex.
St. Francis, Blessing of the Animals
The usual date for the service of the Blessing of the Animals conflicts with the Acolyte Festival. Therefore, here are the options: A service of Blessing of the Animals at 4:30 pm on Friday 5th October; or a service of Blessing of the Animals at 1:30 pm on Sunday 7th October. Indicate your preference on a sign-up sheet in the Narthex this Sunday. The most names for a specific day wins.
And this Sunday:
Don’t forget confirmation and enquirer’s class between the services at 9:15 am. We meet in the lounge in the Christian Formation wing.
And the Beethoven concert at 3 pm in the afternoon – the first of this seasons Cultural Events.
I look forward to seeing you this coming weekend.
