Remembrance Sunday


November 8:  The flowers at the lectern are given to the Glory of God and in loving memory of Flt Sgr H Russell Kedwell (RCAF) lost in the North Sea returning from a bombing mission (July 2042) and Cpl John E Kedwell (RCAF 1940-45) died September 2005 by Peter Kedwell.



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

Wisdom 3: 1-9; Psalm 78:1-7;

1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18;  Matthew 25: 1-13



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

For the souls of all the departed and for those who mourn.

Let us have names by next Friday and they will be included in the next issue.
