Our Pastoral Care Team could use your help for a few hours each week. We have several parishioners who are housebound, shut-in temporarily, lonely and / or unwell. An occasional visit or even just a phone call from a caring person can be a great blessing. We provide some training and support. Please contact David Swift through the church office.

THE MARKS OF MISSION AND MINISTRY
During the Vision 2019 research, a task force saw an opportunity to establish the marks as a common language. They directed General Synod to adopt the Marks of Mission of the Anglican Communion as a primary framework for ministry development in service to God's mission, and commend them as a framework to those we serve and support in provinces, dioceses and local ministries.

ST. JAMES ANGLICAN CHURCH MINISTRY
Ministry service is flourishing at St. James in Carleton Place. Many of our parishioners are involved either privately or as part of an organized team in serving and supporting our church and our community. If you have an interest in joining one of the ministries, a list of contacts is attached.
The Ministry Fair, this coming September 21, will offer a venue for each of our ministries to show how they are attempting to fulfill the Marks of Mission in service to God. It is also an opportunity to invite new members to special interest areas.
The ministries are encouraged to focus on the Marks of Mission in outlining their contributions to, or on behalf of, the parish. This notice is also to promote ideas for advance preparation for the Fair by taking photos or videos that can be used as displays or a means of introduction to the community.
For more information or to provide further input, please contact: Sandra Schappert, Fair Coordinator at 613-492-1006 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us for Exploring the Bible with Father David on Tuesday evenings at 7 p.m. in the Parish Hall.
We gather to discuss the gospel lesson for the upcoming Sunday.
If you are not familiar with the Bible, this is the place to come! All Welcome!”
