Day of Pentecost
Join us for worship on Sunday June 4 as we commemorate the sending down by God of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples as described in Acts 2:1-31. Pentecost Sunday is celebrated to recognize the gift of the Holy Spirit, the birth of the church, and to remind us that we have all been blessed with the same unifying Spirit that was poured out upon early followers of Christ.
On Sunday June 4 following our service, our brother Jun is celebrating his birthday by preparing a Birthday Lunch for his entire St. Mary's family! Thank you Jun and happiest of birthdays to you!!
St. Barnabas Food Cupboard
We are collecting donations of non-perishable food items in cans or jars for our sister parish, St. Barnabas in uptown New Westminster. These groceries are taken to St. Barnabas to be distributed through their weekly Emergency Food Cupboard to families and individuals struggling to make ends meet. There is a donation basket by the door in the hall. Thank you for your support.
We are currently in the process of updating our congregation list. All members of our congregation are asked to ensure their name and contact information is included and up to date. Please speak with Kam Abeyewardene or Doreen McQueen for details.
We are delighted to report we have a new sponsor child, Maria Antonia Flor Aquino, who is 5 years old and lives with her parents in Paraguay. Maria attends preschool and likes to play games with her friends. Her mother is a homemaker and her father is a subsistence farmer. The family's income is unable to provide for their basic needs. Our sponsorship will provide Maria with an education, health care, and nutritional assistance.
