Pastoral Care: Katherine, our summer intern has a goal of leaving St. Michael’s with a pastoral care team by the end of the summer. She is currently in the research phase and wants to know what is needed. Please come to a meeting on Wednesday, 29th May at 1 pm in the Boardroom with ideas. If you are unable to attend, but have ideas or this is something you are interested in, please email Katherine at: [email protected]     

Photos: If anyone has pictures of the Seder supper or the Palm Saturday event “Walk through Holy Week” please forward them to Angela Goddard [email protected] Thank you! 

Outreach Campaign: Our Annual Meeting approved continuing our approach of Outreach with five Campaigns held throughout the year. Our second campaign is for the Sisters’ of St. John. The Sisterhood of St. John the Divine is a contemporary expression of the religious life for women within the Anglican Church of Canada. Founded in 1884, they are a prayer and gospel-centred monastic community bound together by the call to live out their baptismal covenant. Nurtured by their founding vision of prayer, community, and ministry they are open and responsive to the needs of the church and the contemporary world, continually seeking the guidance of the Holy Spirit in their life and ministry. Called to be a sign of Christ, the Sisterhood witnesses to the power of Christ’s reconciling and forgiving love through the gospel imperatives of prayer, spiritual guidance, justice, peace, care for creation, hospitality, ministering to those in need, promoting unity, healing and wholeness. Please use the envelope at the back of the church to contribute as you are able. This campaign will run until 9th June. So far we have raised $1125!

Anglican Journal: If you would like to continue to receive the Anglican Journal by mail, you will need to confirm that on line https://www.anglicanjournal.com/journal-requests-confirmation-from-subscribers The Anglican Journal is also available on-line and you can sign up to receive it that way instead. If you are unable to use the internet and would like to continue to receive the Journal please let Catie know in the office.

Recycling: Please remember to recycle your drink containers in the designated box outside the church office. So far this year we have raised $425 Please keep recycling so that we can beat last year’s total of $1115. The money raised is given as a bursary to students at Camosun who have overcome obstacles to their education and are in financial need. Thank you for helping support this important work.

St. John the Divine Food Bank: Please put dried or canned goods in the marked box at the back of the church. Please ensure that they are unopened and within expiry date so they can be used safely. New hygiene products are also welcome. 100% of any donated funds go to the Food Bank. For further information please contact please contact Stan Willow 250-744-6786 or [email protected]

Coffee Fellowship: Our regular coffee fellowships have become very popular and well-attended. If you are able to take a turn hosting coffee fellowship after one of the Sunday services, please sign up on the rota at the back of the church. If you are unable to actually do the hosting, a small donation to fund the food and coffee would be welcome, or a gift of cookies, cheese, fruit etc. Shop baked goodies are perfectly acceptable.
