Hello all, Herewith a video devotion in lieu of our usual mid week service.
This is the week that our Bishop Logan McMenamie enters retirement. Please keep him and Marcia and all their family in your prayers as they begin this new phase in their lives. As of Friday May 1st our diocese will be under the direction of an Administrator, the Very Rev. Ansley Tucker who is also the Dean of Christchurch Cathedral, Victoria. We await information on next steps towards the election of a new Bishop, a process which has been delayed due to the pandemic.
Also, our parish council had a full meeting online last week. It was good to see their faces and hear their voices! We will provide a report on that meeting soon. I have noticed a number of envelopes have come in the mail and also been posted through the mail slot at the entrance to the church office. On behalf of the Wardens and Parish Council, thank you so much for your ongoing financial support which is so important to the ongoing functioning of our parish.
Finally, we'd like to remind you of the "How can we help" ministry which is being led by Marion and David Edmondson. If you need any help with shopping, RX pickup, or any other chores, don't hesitate to contact Marion.
With every blessing from our household to yours, Alan
