It is difficult to believe that summer is upon us this week! I sincerely hope you all have a great summer with lots of opportunity to visit with friends and family and do a bit of travelling if you can.
The church will be open throughout the summer and please do join us for Sunday worhsip when you are in town. I will be on holidays for the month of July and I am grateful for the folks who have stepped up to help us with Sunday services. Our schedule will look something like this:
Sunday July 3 & 10th - Holy Eucharist - The Reverend Don Sheilds (Chaplain at Markham Stouffville Hospital and Honourary Associate at St. Thomas Brooklin)
Sunday July 17th - Morning Prayer led by Anne Lane
Sunday July 24th & 31st - Holy Eucharist - The Reverend Catherine Desloges (Honourary Assistant at Christ Church Oshawa)
I will be back in August, returning to work at half time, 20 hours a week. I`m looking forward to returning to my full hours as soon as I can.
Please do not hesitate to reach out for pastoral care when needed. We have a wonderful pastoral care team and support beyond the church as well. The Reverend Canon Mark Kinghan is offering pastoral care support for emergencies through most of July.
For the rest of June, let me know of any needs by way of email or phone.

During July please contact one of the wardens and they will make sure someone gets in touch.

As you continue to love and serve our Lord in this time and this place, may you and those you love be blessed by this summer season with rest, connection and peace.
