DO WE HAVE YOUR LATEST CONTACT INFO?

We are working on updating our Parish List address changes, please let the church office know either by email at stjohns@stjohnschurchph.ca by using the Information attached to the weekly Sunday leaflet (see below, right) or call the Parish Office at 905-885-2171.


We have a small number of St. John’s members who cannot get to the services or events because they have no means of transport. One of our objectives, arising out of the visioning process we went through, was to develop an organization to assist those members. First step is to find some people willing to offer drives, on occasion, to someone who needs help to get to church. If you feel that you are in a position to help out in this way, please talk to Keith Pickett at 905-885-2803 or email

  • Sunday of the PassionFROM THE WIDER CHURCH AND THE WORLD: Today in the Anglican Cycle of Prayer we remember The Church of Ireland and The Most Revd Richard Lionel Clarke Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland. Tracing its origins to St. Patrick and his companions in the fifth century, the Irish Church has been marked by strong missionary efforts. In 1537, the English king was declared head of the Church, but most Irish Christians maintained loyalty to Rome. It is almost 150 years since the Church of Ireland was the official State Church.
  • Sunday of the PassionON THE COVER: Duccio, in full Duccio di Buoninsegna, (born 13th century, Siena, Republic of Siena—died c. 1319, Siena?), one of the greatest Italian painters of the Middle Ages and the founder of the Sienese school. In Duccio’s art the formality of the Italo-Byzantine tradition, strengthened by a clearer understanding of its evolution from classical roots, is fused with the new spirituality of the Gothic style. Greatest of all his works is the Maestà (1311), the altarpiece of the Siena cathedral. Christ Appears to the Disciples at the Table after the Resurrection (Panel from the Maesta Altarpiece of Siena). Duccio, di Buoninsegna, d. 1319

PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER
… The Bible contains these words, reminding us to pray for one another not only in difficult times but as a regular part of our spiritual practices. On Sunday mornings, we have begun praying our way through the Parish List, as a way to hold one another up before God in prayer and remind ourselves that we are connected to one another as brothers and sisters in Christ.

Sunday
The Pharisees asked Jesus, “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” Jesus responded, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

Anglicans practically have these words of Jesus in our DNA, they form what we call the “Summary of the Law,” and are read at the beginning of every celebration of Holy Communion according to the Book of Common Prayer. They might seem simple, but following these commandments is the work of a lifetime. It is appropriate that we hear them so often in our worship, as they are the very ground of the Christian life.

NOTICES

LET US PRAY! Our Parish has formed a Prayer Chain
An Intercessory Prayer Chain is a group of people that has been called to the ministry of praying for others on an ongoing basis. They have committed themselves to pray regularly, confidentially and individually, for the people and concerns that are requested of them. They form part of a chain through which God's love flows, and they circulate prayer requests and results among themselves via a communications chain. Anyone who wishes to hold up a person in prayer must have that persons’ permission to do so. Your contact for prayer requests is Jackie Brimblecombe at: 905-885- 0218. Praying for others is a privilege and a gift to each one held up in prayer. I encourage everyone to take full advantage of this new ministry in our midst.- Deacon Sheila Archer
