Cultivating a Culture of Invitation #spreadtheWORD: We are very excited to welcome Michael Harvey back to our diocese next week. While here visiting parishes Michael will hold two public sessions at St. John the Evangelist, Edmonton. He will chat with youth about the Power of Invitation on Friday, April 29 and on Saturday, April 30 hold a workshop on Creating a Culture of Invitation. Michael’s humorous approach to evangelism is as entertaining as it is informative. Not only will you gain insight, you will have a great time. Register online at: www.eventbrite.com/e/creating-a-culture-of-invitation-tickets-4359740100  For more info, call 780-434-8955 or email spreadtheword@sjechurch.ca  

The Anglican Educational Chaplaincy: We are a mission of the Diocese of Edmonton, helping Christ be seen more clearly in libraries and lecture halls and students' daily lives. Our annual silent auction and dinner at the U of A Faculty Club happens this year on Tuesday, May 3rd, beginning at 5:30 pm. This event provides a major part of the funding that makes this ministry possible year after year. Tickets are $75 per person and can be reserved at http://evite.me/baYwTfuCtA , or by contacting the Rev. Scott Sharman (ssharman@ualberta.ca). If you are unable to personally attend this year, consider making a donation at https://goo.gl/7e6xEo. In our own church please see Doug Schindel or Chris Aasen for tickets or when making a donation! Thank you.

The youth will be hosting a Mother's Day BBQ on May 8th in order to raise money to attend this year's annual YC Conference from May 27-29. With a minimum donation of $5 per person or $15 per family of 4 you will receive a burger or hotdog, chips, juice and dessert. Please come out and support this ministry to send the youth of our parish to YC Alberta.
