Outreach for April

4-5months old babies.
With sincere thanks from the Outreach committee for your continued support.
All Saints Hall was busy this past Saturday morning as friends enjoyed hot porridge, coffee and
juice while visiting with each other. While some ate in the hall, others took their breakfast bag
to go. We continue to serve an average of 75 breakfasts and each time, we see new faces along
with the “regulars”.
With the return to inhouse dining, we are using bowls, glasses and mugs. with less dependence
on disposable products. This also means we need more help with serving and clean up. Please
consider joining our St. Jude’s team of volunteers for 3 hours one or two Saturdays a month to
provide nourishment and a welcome space to those in need in our community. Come and check
us out – Saturday April 15th from 9 – 10:30 am. All are welcome!

Food Bank Sunday is Easter Sunday, 9th April. As usual, they can always use Cereal,
Pasta Sauce , Pasta noodles , Mac & Cheese , canned meat , snacks for kids , toiletries.
Kiwanis Festival is returning to St. Jude’s!
The Kiwanis festival will be holding classes at St. Jude from Tuesday, April 11th to Wednesday,
April 26th, and they are looking for volunteers to act as hall managers. The hall manager sets up
the Kiwanis signs, welcomes the participants, introduces the adjudicator, and announces the
classes. Sometimes they also collect fees for audience members at the entrance. This is a fun
volunteer opportunity as it also involves getting to listen to all of the wonderful performances
students have prepared for the festival. If you are interested in helping out please contact Kim
Eyre for more information: [email protected] .

Save the date:
On Saturday June 24th there will be a Strawberry Social at St Jude’s, a served lunch with
strawberry desserts. We are also planning a garden sale of plants-indoor and outdoor and a few
garden themed items. The cost will be $25.00 per person and those 12 and under $10.00. More details to follow and tickets will be available mid April. Those who left their ticket money in trust from the Christmas tea should indicate to Kathy in the office whether they would like to transfer their ticket to this event, donate it to the church or request a refund. We would ask that this be completed by April 24th
(this will keep our accountants happy).
Sherry Shadlock and the Fund Raising/Social Committee
And, here’s an idea:
Get a head start on donating some plants for the sale in June. Splitting and starting new plants
from cuttings is a great way to multiply your favorites. Starting now means you will have a
nice little potted indoor plant to share. Once it is a little less muddy and you can get in the
garden, keep your overgrown perennials in mind for sharing as well.
Easter bonnets; It’s almost time!! As in:
I embellished my Easter chapeau
With flowers, some fruit, and a bow
‘Twill be, I am guessing
A nice Paschal blessing
Leaving all who admire it aglow.
OK, your turn, for a sparkling display on Sunday!!
Note from Fr. Bill: Easter Bonnet Parade is on Sunday, April 9th
between the two services, and welcome everyone!! Also that day we will be having a celebration cake for our Student minister Hayden, as this is his last day.

do not attend any event at St. Jude’s.
