GETTING READY FOR SUNDAY: PREVIEW OF THE READINGS.

Today is Septuagesima (from the Latin word for 70) Sunday, which marks the beginning of the season of Pre- Lent, and our symbolic “countdown” to Easter ( March 31) and the 40 days of Lent. (February 14). It is time for us to begin thinking about the spiritual labour and the pilgrimage or journey that is Lent. Our Epistle reading speaks to us about the necessity of learning self control so that we may not be disqualified from the prize that is the  new life in the Spirit through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In our Gospel lesson Jesus tells the Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard where we learn that both the invitation to spiritual labour, and the reward is sheer gift and grace.

THE LESSON:  1 Corinthians 9:24-27

In today’s Epistle Paul describes how  it is that through the gift of the  Spirit  we, in turn, manifestations of the glory of Christ, who renews our life in brotherly love, turning water into wine.

Stewardship Letter and Pledge Form 2024

We wait expectantly for the Lord’s coming, and the day when he will make all things new. For now, we are caretakers of his church and creation.  To better carry out that task, we want to let you know the state of our parish finances. We face a bigger than anticipated deficit due to a three-fold increase in insurance costs over the past three years, and the significant costs of caring for an older building. Thanks to your generosity, increased fundraising and rental income, and modest reliance on our trust fund accounts, we will be able to cover these expenses and complete the much-needed renovation of the Lower Hall. We give glory to God and are so very grateful for your faithfulness. We approach the new year with hope in God and in his provision for our needs.
