Parish Lawn Mower – As you may have noticed our lawn tractor has been functioning with the assistance of duct tape, wire and prayer and sometimes even that is barely enough. It is time for a new tractor. We have purchased a new tractor that should keep us going for a long time into the future. A huge word of thanks to all those who made this lawn tractor purchase possible through your knowledge and wisdom and generosity. If you would like to make a special donation to the purchase of the tractor in addition to your regular Sunday donation just note on your cheque “Tractor purchase”. Again thanks to all of you for helping us to maintain our facilities and properties! We continue to receive positive comments about our buildings and grounds and this is because of your kindness!
The Pope’s Prayer Intention for July – For the Elderly: We pray for the elderly, who represent the roots and memory of a people; may their experience and wisdom help young people to look towards the future with hope and responsibility.
