St. Helen’s Accompanist Upon the retirement of Val, our long time accompanist we were pleased to welcome Cheng Hu into our Christian family in music ministry. She has already settled into the choir routine and you will have an opportunity to hear her play in upcoming services.
Inclement Weather In case of impending major snowfalls or freezing rain warnings, please check with the leaders of your parish group or activity before coming to the church. When possible, a message will also be left on the church answering machine. We cannot guarantee that the parking lot or path ways will be cleared or completely sanded, so please be smart! Every time we call for sanding there is an extra cost to the parish of $95. So, if you complain, put an extra $100. In the plate! Please note that sand/salt containers are located at both the front and the servery doors. Don’t wait for ‘someone else’ to respond if there is a need to make our walkways safer!
Church Cleaners A professional cleaning company has been hired to clean the tiled areas of the church once a month. Cleaning, however, must take place on a weekly basis. If you are available to assist in this task, once a month, Saturdays or Mondays, please volunteer to Colin Taylor, Judy Beehler or the clergy.
To those who attended or assisted with the Newcomer’s Gathering on November 17
We would like to thank everyone for their participation in this year’s bazaar. Many people worked throughout the year, especially St. Helen’s craft group, making items that filled our tables. Our parish has an abundance of talented sewers, knitters, crafters, quilters, and carpenters; all contributing their time and materials in a display which made us proud. As the harvest season ended, parishioners transformed fruits and vegetables into jams, jellies, chutneys, pickles and more. Closer to the big day, kitchens were filled with the aroma of home baked breads, cookies, pies, squares, tarts, loaves and candy; which made their way to our Bake Table. We also acknowledge the family members who watched the goodies go out the door on route to the church
