Sunday October 25th: Thanksgiving for our Loved Ones Who Have Died Many of us have lost loved ones in the past year or two and would like to have an opportunity to honour their memory and to give thanks for their life. On Sunday October 25th we will have an opportunity to do so. If you wish to remember a loved one on that date, you will be invited to come forward and place a carnation on the altar in their memory, along with a card with their name on it; these cards will then be offered in prayer to God during the prayers of the people. We invite you to reserve your carnation by calling the church office at 437-7231 or email@example.com, giving your name and the name of your loved one. A donation of $2 per carnation is suggested and a basket for these donations will be placed at the back of the church on the 25th.
