This Week at St. Margaret's

We bid a fond farewell to our long time parishioner Doug MacNeill, who has been a member of this parish for many, many years. Doug has been involved in the life of our parish at almost every level, including (in recent years) performing many roster volunteer duties, preaching and leading services as a lay reader, membership in our Thursday morning Men's Bible Study group, and serving on vestry.

Doug and his mom are moving to Calgary where they will live with Doug's brother who is retiring there. Doug, thank you for being part of our parish family for all these years, and may God bless and guide you in this next stage in your journey with Christ. We will miss you.

Doug will be preaching at both services this Sunday. Please join us after the 10:30 service for cake and fellowship.

We are excited about our Kids Kapers summer camp which is fast approaching and will run from July 31st to Aug 4th. In preparation for this, we need to stack and move all the chairs to the front of the church. If you are able to help with this after coffee hour on Sunday July 30th, our volunteers setting up later that afternoon would be very grateful! Also, anyone willing to help put the chairs back on Friday August 4th around 1:30pm would be more than welcome!

During your travels this spring/summer, if you visit another church, please bring back the bulletin with you and post it on our “Summer Travels” bulletin board in the front foyer of the church. It’s always fun to see where people have been!

Please check out our monthly announcement sheet for more upcoming events. If you have not received a copy or have changed your email address, please update your email with Tim or Melanie. Extra copies are available on the table at the back of the church.
