St. Mark’s Anglican Church, Port Hope

Twenty-fourth Sunday after Pentecost                       15 November 2020

23rd Sunday after Trinity


November 15:  The flowers are given to the Glory of God and in memory of Farley Mowat, Helen Mowat, Francis Thompson and Winnifred Wheeler by Claire Mowat.




Should you wish to follow the Lectionary at home, here are the readings:

Judges 4:1-7; Psalm 90:1-8,12; 1Thessalonians 5: 1-11; Matthew 25 14-30



Through The Cat’s Meow we can gather in the names of those who are suffering in body, mind or spirit at this time and for whom you have a special concern and we can each undertake to lift them up in prayer before God.


For those who are living in fear for whatever reason;

For patients in hospitals and residents of long-term care facilities, and their families;

For the lonely and forgotten in this time of social isolation;

For those who are living on the margins of society;

For those whose burden is too deep for words.

For Gail Rowe and her family.  For Sheila Goering.


The Cat’s Meow:  For inclusion, contact Marion Thompson at before Friday morning.  905-885-0787
