The shingles on the church are being replaced during this upcoming week, May 7th to May 11th as they are quite old and due for an upgrade.

What’s the next step in St. Margaret’s building redevelopment plan? We are ready to move forward and need your input!! PLEASE plan to join us for an informal discussion after church on Sunday May 27th. You should have received more information on this by email, and there are hard copy information packages on the table in the foyer as well.
On Sunday June 17th there will be an ‘Extraordinary Congregational Meeting’ at 12 noon – 1:30 p.m. (approximately) at which motion(s) will be presented and debated, and a decision made about the next step we will take in this process.

As follow up to our AGM, vestry has made a decision to donate $5000 from our cell tower revenue to The Pikangikum Water Project. This is a project of the PWRDF which aims to bring clean water to the First Nations Community of Pikangikum in northwestern Ontario. You can find more information at https://pwrdf.org/our-work/pikangikum-water-project/, and there is also an info sheet posted on the bulletin board in the foyer.

The St. Margaret’s Grass Cutting Team (SMGCT) 2018 will be starting up again this June, with a get-together-training in late May.  We are looking for volunteers to be a part of the SMGCT!!  If you like fresh air, getting a tan and fun exercise, please contact the church office at 780-437-7231 or stmargarestsedmonton@gmail.com.  No experience necessary!
