Lenten Study – Is there interest for having a Lenten Study this year? Over Lent, we’ll be reading passages from the gospel of John that illuminate the unusual discussions Jesus had during his ministry. Each conversation exposes different ideas and understandings about God. In the time together, I’d like to propose study these passages with the help of the book, “Drawn Into the Mystery of Jesus through the Gospel of John” by Jean Vanier. If you are interested, please contact me by phone or email at

Men’s Ministry Breakfast Meeting is on Saturday, March 21st 9:30am at St George’s Anglican Church in Fitzroy Harbour beginning with coffee and fellowship. The guest speaker will be Father John Stopa who is the rector of St. George’s and St. Thomas Anglican Churches. As a theological student and postulant for ordination in 1998, Father John participated in an Anglican Church International Exchange Program in the 115 Seychelle Islands located in the Indian Ocean. His 3 month training and spiritual adventure was the most wonderful experience for him after he found the island’s location on a map (no Google back then)! Please plan to attend and let Father John tell you about it!
All men of the Community are welcome.
Contact Ken Stewart at 613-623-3881 or for more information or transportation assistance or to let us know you will be attending.
