Prayer Net

Each time you are at the church say a prayer…for the world, the environment, the parish, the church, social justice issues, for people in need, for healing, for people to come to Christ, for yourself…mark that you have offered that prayer by tying a ribbon to the fish net located just outside the Parish Office.  This is one way to respond to the following: “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances ; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5

On Spiritual Matters

Would you like a ‘spiritual direction’ hour with one of the clergy?  Would you like to make private confession known as “Reconciliation of a Penitent”?(The Anglican approach is ‘all may, none must, some should’!)   Would you like a home visit?  Please do not hesitate to call or e-mail us to request any of the above.  Church Office 613-824-2010 or st.helen@on.aibn.com
