Snow this week? Likely not here to stay but reminding us that winter is close and time to get our
warmer clothes ready. For those attending the Breakfast Program, warm sweaters, socks and
boots are needed to help with those cold nights. We see friends of all sizes and ages who could
use warmer gear. And we can’t forget the little ones – a couple of six year olds and a young girl
in grade 3. Also appreciated are Christmas and birthday cards – so if you have some leftover
cards and envelopes, please drop them off in the basement kitchen. Given we served 118 last
time, we will prep for 120 this week – please feel free to drop in and see your St. Jude’s team in
action this Saturday November 4th from 9 – 10:30 am. All are welcome!

FundScrip Rick will be in the Narthex between the services on Sunday next to take your card
orders. It’s not too early to remind everyone that these cards make excellent stocking stuffers at
Christmas, which often solves a thorny problem, and it’s a win-win for the church’s finances.

You can attend every week or just occasionally if that is what your schedule allows. We will
hear a passage of scripture read a number of times. Each time the passage is read participants
will be asked to reflect on a different question. Following each reading of the passage
participants will be invited to share their thoughts and reflections on the question they were
asked to think about.
This is a very informal approach to reading and talking about scripture and again everyone is

St. Jude’s 70th anniversary. A huge vote of thanks to Derek and his crew of volunteers for all
they did to make this celebration so special – the afternoon tea was a great success, and it was
just a blast in the evening, made more special as we welcomed back some old friends. Plus an
interesting display of parish memorabilia, not an easy task to research all that!
Men of St. Jude are getting together for a lunch on Tuesday November 7th
