Please Sign Up for a Ministry At coffee hour there are a variety of ministries for which you may sign up.  

Father Ayoob Adwar – On Sunday, March 26th, Father Ayoob’s priestly orders were received into the Anglican Church by Bishop Melissa.  There was a great turnout of support to Ayoob who has been with us for about a year in a liturgical placement to learn the ways of Anglican worship. We would like to give him a gift  from St Helen’s.  Those who would like to contribute, please put your gift in an envelope marked as ‘Gift to Fr Ayoob’ & place it in the offertory plate this week or next.  

Spring appears to be here, so once again it is time for a grounds clean-up.  We are looking for volunteers to come out and help on Sat. April 22 from 10am - 2pm.  The more hands the lighter the work. Even if you can only work for an hour every little bit helps.  Please bring your gardening tools and your smiles.  It will be a fun day and soothing to the soul.
