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.
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.
To assist Fr. Vincent in the blessing of the graves of your family members, please sign your name to the sign-up sheet in the narthex.
St. Herman’s currently has one team of prosphora bakers, and we would like to add a second team (3-4 people). You would be responsible for meeting together for a half day, only once every second month, to bake prosphora for the parish (the bread that we use for the Holy Eucharist). No experience necessary, as training will be provided. Please see Fr. Vincent if you are interested in being involved in this ministry.
