When Christmas Hurts’ Wednesday December 20th 7:00 p.m.
Christmas is not a happy time for everyone. This service is designed to provide comfort and healing; it will be held in cooperation with St. Patrick’s and Crosslife Church and will be @ St. Margaret’s.

Tim will be away on vacation from Dec 27th, 2017 until Jan 2nd, 2018, inclusive. During his absence, the Rev. Hugh Matheson will be providing emergency pastoral care and can be reached at 780-312-7794.

Giving envelopes for 2018 are out in the foyer for pickup.  If you are going to be giving via direct deposit for 2018, there are no envelopes set out for you for the upcoming year.  Should you wish to contribute during the year for something “extra” such as world vision or PWRDF, simply use the blank envelopes at the back of the church. Should you have any questions, please feel free to call the church office at 780-437-7231.

Please join us for our Christmas services:

Sunday December 24th (Christmas Eve):

10:00 am Holy Communion for the 4th Sunday of Advent
4:00 pm Informal Holy Communion for Families. The first part of the service will include a Children’s pageant, and much of it will be led by our children and youth. We hope that our families with children will find this a good service to attend.

Monday December 25th 10:00 am Holy Communion for Christmas Day.

We will be accepting donations to the World Vision Raw Hope project at all of our Christmas Services. There is a special blue envelope for this in your envelope boxes, or if you don’t have this, please use an envelope from the back of the church and mark it ‘Raw Hope’.
