West Broadway Community Ministry urgent appeal
Right now at West Broadway their cupboards are bare. (Except for Kraft dinner) The abundance that they enjoyed over the Christmas season is over. They are in desperate need of non-perishable foods. They need canned meats and fish, soups, pork and beans, instant cereal, canned pastas, and canned stews. On 19 February they had 25 requests for emergency food: four families and 21 individuals. It is cold and very hard out there. They need prayers. They need money. They need food.
If you can help them, please drop by at 222 Furby St. between 9 and 3 on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday.
Or donate through their website.
Tuesdays, 10:00 in the boardroom.
We are studying the book The Last Week, What the Gospels really teach about Jesus’s final days in Jerusalem. The book can be ordered from any book store, but you can still participate without it! This will carry us up to Holy Week.
We invite you to join our lively studies and discussions.
Tuesday 25 February. A Pancake Supper will be held in the parish hall. All-you-can-eat pancakes with three sausages will be served for a minimal cost of $10.00 per person. Children, 15 and under, are free. Included in the ticket price will be dessert and tea, coffee, or juice.
Supper will be served starting at 17:00 until 19:00.
Mark your calendars – we would love to see you there.
Your support is very much appreciated.
Our annual Rummage Sale will take place on Saturday 25 April
from 09:00 to 13:00 in the parish hall.
Volunteers are needed to help sort, organize, and price the incredible array of items we received to sell at this event. Organizing and sorting will take place from Wednesday 22 April to Friday 24 April. If you can spare an hour or two during the sorting process or at the sale, please contact the co-ordinators.
Donating your items is a great way to be green. It’s a way of recycling and keeps usable items out of your basements, garages, and eventually, landfills. Any items that are not sold are donated to other charities at the end of the sale. We are, however, unable to accept large TVs, appliances that don’t work, or items that are broken or in need of repair.
Donations to the sale will now be accepted at the church Mondays to Fridays from 09:00 to 12:00. Please place your items on the tables outside the boardroom. If another time is better for you please call or text Sara Sakowski at 204.792.4427 or Barbara Calder at 204.453.9219 [E-Mail]. Pickup of items may also be arranged.
We are thankful to the many volunteers who help year after year and to all the individuals who contribute items to the sale. A meeting will be held in the parish hall following the 10:30 eucharist on Sunday 29 March. Everyone is welcome to be present to ask questions and to volunteer.
We look forward to seeing you on 25 April!

On 25 February, we celebrate Shrove Tuesday with a pancake and sausage/bacon breakfast for our guests. Volunteers are needed to help that morning. Come early and cook, or come later and help clean up. Donations are needed for sausages, bacon, juice, fresh fruit, or cash to make it a great breakfast. We always have a great fellowship with each other and the guests.
Please contact Barbara Calder. (204.453.9219)
