This Sunday, June 21 is the fourth Sunday in Pentecost. We will NOT have our regular Sunday service at St. Anselm’s. Instead our parish will join other Point Grey churches for an ecumenical service in Trimble Park. The service is at 10am (Please note earlier start time!) The open offering is for the Indian Residential School Survivor Society (IRSSS), a provincial organization with a twenty year history of providing services to Indian Residential School Survivors. If you would like to split your offering between St. Anselm’s and the IRSSS, bring an envelope and write your intention on the envelope or in the memo section of your check and we will take care of it for you.Following the service, you are invited for fellowship time at St. Helen's. You may bring a plate of cookies or squares to share.
Directions to Trimble Park
We are delighted that Aaron, one of our resident artists, is sharing several pieces of his work with us. These beautiful paintings of birds are now hanging in the Nave, to the glory of God and for the enjoyment for all. They are also available for sale, with fifty percent of the proceeds going to our Neighbourhood Ministry to the Homeless. Instead of fixing prices, Aaron welcomes all inquiries, and also does commissions. We would also like to remind parents that these works of art are not for small hands to touch. You can see more of Aaron’s work at: http://thesearepaintings.googlepages.com
