ANNOUNCEMENTS AND NOTICES

Animal Blessing Service: In the tradition of St. Francis of Assisi, Christ Church is hosting a special service that will include prayers of blessing for animals. Bring your pets, livestock, and stuffed toys to be blessed at the church Sunday October 14. This very brief service will begin at 2pm.

Kids Bible Day: Next Saturday October 13, Christ Church is hosting a special morning of fun, games, songs, and learning about God's creation. We will be meeting at the Stephanie Grady Education Pavillion at the Upper Canada Migratory Bird Sanctuary at 10am. Please dress for the weather and bring your own lunch. Contact Gail Gillespie or Rev. Patrick for details.

Turkey bones: Please consider bringing in your turkey bones from Thanksgiving. We will use them to make soup for the fall luncheon. Thank you- Colleen.

Retirement Gift: As you know Archdeacon Frank Kirby is retiring from active ministry at the end of October. If you wish to donate to his retirement gift there are envelopes at the back of the church with “Retirement Gift for Fr Frank Kirby” on the front. You may place your donation on the offering plate or give the Stephen in the office. Thank You

Blessing Bags: The 3rd Annual Blessing Bag Distribution needs you.  Once a year we are able to distribute Blessing Bags to our food cupboard participants.  You might ask, “What’s in a Blessing Bag?”  Items that our regular food cupboard participants can not afford to buy.

A bag consists of 7 items:  shampoo, bar soap, deodorant, socks, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and hand sanitizer.  When you are hungry, you buy food first.

Please consider donating either the 7 items for a bag or whatever items you are able to contribute.  We make 50 bags and we always run short. As our participants say, “This is a real blessing” which is why we’ve called them Blessing Bags.

What better way to give thanks for the bounty in our lives than to “bless” someone else’s.

The bags will be blessed on Thanksgiving Sunday and will be distributed at the first food cupboard that week.  Thank you for supporting this parish endeavor.
