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.

Pray, Give, Advocate
As part of Lent, Canadian Foodgrains Bank invites you to fast on Friday, March 7 for those affected by climate change.
Last November, the Philippines was ravaged by super Typhoon Haiyan just as the annual United Nations climate change negotiations got underway in Warsaw, Poland. The Philippines lead negotiator, Yeb Saρo, who feared for the lives of his own family, immediately started a two-week climate fast to stand in solidarity with those who suffer the impacts of a changing climate and to call for urgent action. Since the conference he has continued his fast once a month-and is inviting others to join him.
We invite you to join Foodgrains Bank Executive Director Jim Cornelius and stand alongside our brothers and sisters in a prayerful Fast for those affected by climate change. According to Jim, "This fast is about creating some space for me to pray and reflect more deliberately about the issue of climate change and hunger, both personally and professionally."
This Lent you are invited to pray, give, and advocate on the theme of hunger--and thirst--to observe World Water Day, March 22. Click here for Lent Worship Resources.
March 13 at 7:30 at St. Thomas the Apostle Church members of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank will discuss their partnership with PWRDF and their progress to end world hunger They will be reporting on specific projects including the delivery of aid to refugees fleeing the violence in Syria, sustainable agriculture projects in Africa and Asia, and CFGB activities and concerns in Canada.
