What we would like is for people to bring salads, a couple of trays of tomatoes and shredded lettuce and desserts. A sign up sheet is at the back of the church. If possible, please bring your own plates, bowls and cutlery. Any questions please call Jacky Stevens 250-656-4640

FAMILIAS DE LA ESPERANZA
(New June Monthly Mission) -In 2006, the mission discovered entire families living and working in the city dump overlooking the resort of Puerto Vallarta. Their work started, simply enough, by bringing these families food and water. Their situation was dire. Working with a local resort developer and several volunteers, they defined their mission statement, which would come to guide their work there:

"To provide physical, educational, medical, spiritual and emotional support to the families living in the landfill or garbage dump in Puerto Vallarta or surrounding areas."

Today, nearly 300 children are enrolled in school through their School Sponsorship program and several program alumni are even attending universities.

This year marks an exciting new chapter in the mission: A brand new, 70-unit housing and community learning center at the base of Hope Road is nearing completion. It will eventually house 500 men, woman and children, giving many, for the first time, true sheltered homes with running water, electricity, and modern appliances. The center represents much more than just modern shelter, however. It is a transformative place, providing the physical, educational, emotional and spiritual support to families to become independent and self-sufficient.

PINOCCHIO, JIMINY CRICKET AND CHRISTIAN CONSCIENCE
We introduce the study on conscience with the key characters in a children's tale and movie. Over ten weeks we will ask questions about the morality of human acts. How can something be wrong that feels so good? If being good or bad do not matter what does matter? How do we resolve personal struggles with conscience within a culture of moral relativism? What do all human beings have in common morally? What does scripture say about these questions? Is it enough to ask "What would Jesus do?" How do we know when we have a properly formed conscience? How do we reconcile faith with reason?

Where: St. Elizabeth's, Sidney.
When: Tuesdays, 2-4 p.m. Sept 19th - Nov 28,2017

Format: Lectures and small facilitator led discussion groups

Fee: By donation. $10 for printed material.

Register now to ensure a place. Contact: St. Elizabeth's parish office 250-656-7433 or email spparish@shaw.ca.

 

 

FORWARD DAY BY DAY DEVOTIONALS
Daily devotionals for May, June and July are available now at the back of the church.  $1.50 each please.  Money envelope is at the side of the box.

COFFEE Fellowship
Please join us for coffee each Sunday between the 9:00 and 11:00 a.m.  services.   Everyone welcome!

Sidney Food BanK
As part of our missions and outreach to the community there is now a crate at the back of the hall for donations to the Sidney Food Bank. As and when the crate is full the wardens will take the donations to the Food bank, this will be an ongoing project and especially useful to those who wish to give but can't always get to the Food Bank when it is open.

We invite you to consider joining us in making St. Andrew’s a safe and scent-free sanctuary for all.  An increasing number of people are becoming more and more sensitive to fragrances.  While we pray for medical solutions, may we also seek to conquer by our care and love, and by paying attention to the needs of others.  Thank you, St. Andrew’s Parish Councilly
