BLESSINGS AND THANKS to our palm-cross folding crew – John and Roberta, Hilary, Sharon, and Alan – who met on Friday morning in preparation  for our service today!

LOAVES and FISHES OFFERING TABLEIn the Gospels  we are told that it was the offering of five loaves and two fish which the Lord took, blessed, broke, and distributed which fed the multitudes. On Sunday morning the offering of  our “loaves and fishes” consists of our alms (money), oblations (bread and wine), and our prayers for those in special need, for those travelling, and for departed loved ones, as well as our own intentions. That which we offer to God is returned to us as through the Holy Spirit as life-giving  communion in the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.

EASTER OFFERING. The Vestry has designated that our Lenten alms that form our Easter offering will be given to Souls Harbour Rescue Mission. Please use the yellow envelopes provided. 

EASTER VIGIL SERVICE will be held at St. Paul’s Cathedral this Saturday at 8.00 p.m. All are welcome.

EASTER BRUNCH. Please bring finger food to share for a light brunch following the service on Easter Sunday. Paradise Cake and Easter egg hunt for the children will be provided!

All interested individuals will be added to the list of those who can help and will be contacted for availability when some needs for transportation arises. 


I read [in Genesis 1] that God created everything by his power and out of his great love. God is the source of all life. Everything comes from him, finds its life in him, and returns to him. So how is it I have come to live my life as if I am the center of everything, while I have shoved God away from his place of prominence and preeminence? Why do I prefer my own desires, thoughts, words, motives, and deeds above God’s? When and how did I become my own God? When I search my heart honestly, I realize what I really want is to control my own world. I want God, but only when his presence is convenient for me.
