March 5th from 7:30 – 9:30 and March 6th from 10:00 – 5:00 Christian Basics Weekend This is an introduction to basic Christianity designed for inquirers into the Christian faith, for new Christians wanting to learn more about their faith, for long-time believers wanting a refresher course in the basics, and for baptismal candidates and those bringing children for baptism. This course is required for all baptismal candidates, and adult confirmation candidates. For more information, contact Tim at firstname.lastname@example.org or 780-437-7231.

The titles of the sessions include:
· Talking to God in Prayer

St. Margaret’s along with St. Luke’s is providing and serving lunch at the Bissel Centre on Sunday Feb. 28. Normally we serve about 350 people. As in the past a sign up sheet is at the back of the table for those wishing to help out by providing food.
If you prefer to make a donation please enclose it in your Sunday offering and mark it for ICPM. We will be purchasing all the sandwich ingredients as well as extra sweets, fruit and vegetables as required.
On Sat. February 27th we will be making sandwiches in the church basement at 1:30 pm
On Sunday the 28th we will prepare and serve lunch. For those able to volunteer their time please contact Maggie Woytkiw. Volunteers are asked to arrive at the Bissel centre (10530 96 street which is on the west side of the street, and there is parking in the rear) between 9 and 9:30 pm and should finish around1:30 pm.
Volunteers providing food can deliver the food to the church Tuesday-Thursday between 9am and 12pm or on Saturday at 1:30 pm. If anyone has any extra plastic grocery bags could you please leave them in the church kitchen area, as we require approximately 100. They will be used to send out extra sandwiches for the homeless.
