PASCHAL OFFERING

This year, during our Pascha service, we will be passing the collection plate around to receive a Paschal offering. (Offering envelopes are available on the candle desk in the narthex.) Please consider giving an extra donation as you are able to, “for God loves a cheerful giver” (II Cor. 9:7)

St Peter the Aleut Summer Camp

St Peter the Aleut Summer Camp is thrilled to announce the dates and location for 2014! Camp this year will be Tuesday, August 5th through Sunday, August 10th, for campers (completed grade 2 – completed grade 9), with a training day for the volunteer staff on Monday, August 4th. This year, camp will be at a new site: Rehoboth Christian Ministries, located at Gull Lake in central Alberta (15 km west of Lacombe). Staff applications and camper registrations are now available and are located on the candle desk in the narthex. Staff applications are due Sunday, May 25th, and camper registrations are due Sunday, June 15th. It takes many volunteers to run camp, so please prayerfully consider how you can be involved in camp this year.

Toys Needed

New or used toys (in good condition) are needed for the children’s play area in our Fellowship Hall. Your donations would be appreciated, especially by the children who are playing during the lunch hour.

ST. HERMAN'S MEMORIAL FUND

The St. Herman's Memorial Fund is a way to remember the faithful departed by family and friends who want to pay tribute to a life well lived. You may donate funds to a specific parish project, or to the general memorial fund. Funds donated to the general memorial fund ensures that the legacy of our loved ones will live on, as the money will be used to help fund various ministries of the parish, and to help provide training for our leaders. Please consider donating to this fund in memory of your loved ones. You are also encouraged to remember our parish in your estate planning.

Habitat for Humanity Build Day

We also ask you to look ahead and note MAY 31 on your calendars for a Habitat for Humanity build day. This is part of the Interfaith build project - there will be more details posted soon, but in the meantime please mark your calendar and commit to joining our team that day - we can accommodate 10-15 volunteers, a number that should not be hard to raise in a community of this size. No experience is necessary and everything you need for the day is provided - protective wear, tools, instruction and lunch. This is open to anyone 16 years of age and over.
