You can add your donation to your regular Sunday offering (indicate "Christmas baskets" on the envelope), drop it off at the church office, or consider contributing on-line using our CanadaHelps portal.

Final Report of the Visioning Group

About the season: Ordinary Time/ Season of Creation
When: From the Sunday after Pentecost (June 9 in 2019) until the beginning of Advent (Dec 1 in 2019).
Colour: Green
About the Date: "Ordinary" comes from "ordinal" which means "counting" as we count the Sundays to Advent
Meaning: As crops slowly grow in the fields, this time between the major holy seasons in the church provides a time in which we can grow our faith, and then turn our focus to the mission of the church in the world. The time from the beginning of September is also known as the Season of Creation, during which we can also focus on thankfulness for the gifts of creation and on our role as stewards of the earth.
