Lenten Study – 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. We are meeting Thursday, March 5, 12, 26 and April 2 at the home of Ben and Janet McLeod at 10 a.m. to noon. All are welcome
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.
