Sunday services. The diocese has lifted all Covid restrictions, so now it is no longer mandatory
for you to wear a mask for the 10.00 am service, although this is always a personal choice and
recommended, and hand sanitizing and social distancing where possible are sensible precautions.
The diocese leaves it up to individual parishes to decide what rules they wish to apply.
For the month of June masks will still be required at the 8.30 am service at St. Jude’s, and after
that the situation will be reconsidered.
The Common Cup can now be offered at Communion, but reception of this is optional, and
receiving just the Bread still constitutes a full Communion.
The 10.00 am service will be live streamed and recorded for the website, YouTube and
Facebook page. Here is the link for the live stream: https://youtu.be/LSRjgn-rYNg

Office hours:
Kathy is in the office Monday to Friday, 9 am to 1.00 pm.

Rest In Peace
Evan Hewitson, (nephew and godson of Fr. Matt). May Evan’s soul find rest eternal and rise in
glory into the loving arms of the divine, and pray for Matt and all the family and friends to find
strength and in time comfort.

Let Us Pray for

The people and land of Ukraine. May the world bring support and resources in a timely
manner to help save lives and relocate people to safety. May the world leaders negotiate in
good faith to bring peace and an opportunity for rebuilding of lives, and safe transport of
agriculture products to feed the peoples of the world who are in need.

Let Us Pray for

For members of the LGBTQ2S+ community and their allies. During June, Pride month, it
behooves everyone to accept that every human being is a child of God and deserves to be
afforded dignity and opportunities to flourish in life.

Let Us Pray for

All those people suffering challenges due to the rising cost of living, especially people on set
and limited incomes. Food banks are now servicing people who have for years been donors.
May world markets and peace be established to help stabilize world markets, and the power
brokers use their influence and resources to protect people from war, hunger, disease and
financial instability.

Let Us Pray for

The vulnerable, the marginalized, the poor, the oppressed (especially in places like
Afghanistan) where freedom and flourishing seems a distant dream. May they have the political
will and the support needed to live the full safe life you would have for all your children.

Let Us Pray for

All of Creation as discussions and genuine actions to halt climate change and manage global
warming and eco systems seem to ebb and flow depending on the political spotlight. May the
will of individuals to each do their part and to influence the power brokers always be front and
center and all become the stewards of your good creation.

In celebration of Trinity Sunday just past
Diversity Blessing
May the God who created a world of diversity and vibrancy,
Go with us as we embrace life in all its fullness.
May the Son who teaches us to care for stranger and foreigners,
Go with us as we try to be good neighbours in our communities.
May the Spirit who breaks down our barriers and celebrates community,
Go with us as we find the courage to create a place of welcome for all.

Breakfast Program
Once again the team is getting ready for this week’s breakfast. We’re never sure how many
people will come so will prepare for 65. With the grilled ham and cheese sandwich, we’ll serve
fresh baby carrots or grape tomatoes, since guests really enjoy having the fresh vegetables.
For the first Saturday in July we like to add fresh strawberries to celebrate Canada Day. Your
financial donations towards this seasonal treat would be most appreciated. Thank you!
Our next breakfast is this Saturday, June 18th.

Ukraine aid. The Primate’s Fund is collecting gifts for aid to Ukraine (enter PWRDF to find
the website) and also the Canadian Red Cross (enter Canadian Red Cross for details), or your
own favourite agency. The need continues to be great and urgent.

Fundraising

Pies!! Believe it or not, the ladies have already begun making pies with the fruits of summer,
and rhubarb pies are now available for you. Pick one (or two) up after the services on Sunday,
they are the usual $10.00 each, (and worth every mouth watering penny!)

Notices
