Outreach The focus in February is on our Breakfast program and the St. Paul’s Foodbank.

Breakfast Program
The next breakfast is Saturday, 2nd March.
(Our electronic signs still shows last Saturday’s breakfast date. This is due to a technical
problem that we are trying to get fixed)

St. Paul’s Food Bank. Our next food bank Sunday is 10th March.

Fundraising and Social

Fundscrip. We are trying to get Fundscrip up and running again while Rick continues his
recovery, and card order forms will now be available in the Narthex each Sunday. Fill in your
form and give it to Joanne or Dennis after your service on Sunday, with your cheques!!

Choir news. The choir will welcome new members any Thursday at practice time, 7.30 pm.
Easter is early this year, and the choir is rehearsing the special Holy Week music, so if you can
spare the time to just join the Festival Choir, a more limited commitment, come on Thursday.
