GREETINGS FROM YOUR WARDENS

WARDENS REPORT – NEWSLETTER SEPTEMBER 28, 2017

 

We continue to be very busy and active at St. Mark’s. The Father William Oyster and Sliders evening  was well attended, considering a first event. The location was great and a rare opportunity to tie in with a major week-end celebration of the first Parliament and the continuation of the 150 events.  A lot of volunteers work very hard on this event- a special thanks to all.

Last week-end the hosting of Dr. Thomas Curran was well received and covered Saturday and the Shaw- St. Joan play. Sunday, we were pleased to have him be our guest preacher at both services.

A Contract has been awarded for the work on the Church wall remediation. The work will start right after Thanksgiving. The Contract came in under our 225 Budget project.

There will be  great deal of activity between now and Christmas, more information on the special services, timings etc will be in the Sunday leaflets shortly.

The Finance Committee have begun working on the 2018 Budgets, which will involve Parish Council review and discussions.

The search committee for the Office administrator and Choirmaster and organist positions continue their work.

All we do can only be accomplished by the great efforts of our volunteers.  In some cases, it is a small task, in others, it requires a team or group. IF you have not been asked or have a special talent you would like to offer, please be in touch with us.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING  -m time to  give thanks for what we have and do. A special time to share  with family, friends and neighbours and those less fortunate. See you in Church.

Allan Magnacca -Rector’s Warden  and Joy Rogers- Peoples Warden
