Bishop Peter Mason, Honorary Assistant at St Mary Magdalene, dedicated a new paten in loving memory of Helen Pinkerton. Helen was a much loved member of the congregation who served in a number of roles, including especially leading the Altar Guild. She died in October 2021 after a difficult and heroic struggle with declining health, and the Churchwardens and Altar Guild decided a new paten would be a very good way to remember her.
Our Parish Deacon Fran Langlois has served our parish for 12 years. She was ordained to serve the Anglican Ministry to Seniors in The County, and has been the leader of that ministry since 2017. The Churchwardens decided it was time to equip her with a new communion kit which she will use when bringing communion to shut-ins and seniors residences. The gift was presented to Fran in church on June 12th.
We are delighted to report that during Lent we raised $2,635 for our church’s Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund in support of Ukraine Relief. Thank you everyone who supported this effort!
