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

    • ON THE COVER - (above) - Jesus speaks with the Canaanite woman in this painting by Baroque artist Mattia Preti. Notice the dog upon which the woman rests her hand, a dog is often included in depictions of the encounter with the Canaanite woman, reminding us of Jesus’ seemingly harsh rebuke, “It is not fair to take the children’s food and throw it to the dogs,” and her reply, “Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters’ table.” Some Christians have contextualized our Lord’s words, arguing that Jesus’ harsh words were meant to demonstrate to his disciples that they ought not deal uncharitably with those who come to them for healing and help. Others have argued that they are evidence of Jesus’ humanity showing through, that even he could be impatient or simply tired. Art | Jesus and the Canaanite Woman Mattia Preti (c.1660)

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.

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
