September 25 – October 1, 2017

Request from our Altar Guild: Next week, please bring non-perishable food (tinned goods, pasta, etc.) and lovely garden produce for our Thanksgiving display and parish pantry. Your contributions may be left in a basket by the greeter’s table on Sunday or during office hours (Tues., Wed., Fri. 10-1).. Items not needed for decorations will be shared with those who come looking for food.

Happy Birthday to you! This week we celebrate the faith and spirit of Marie D’Iorio whose birthday is on September 28. Do you know we have a birthday and anniversary list in the church office? We hope you are on it—why not check with Kelly MacKay or Jane Waterston to make sure.

Igloo@206, St.Margaret’s principal hospitality program, restarts on Tuesday, September 26, 11-2 pm in the church hall. This is a monthly social for Inuit and others (maybe you?) wanting to get to know people from Canada’s North. The lunch is hosted by St. Margaret’s volunteers; donations of baked goods are welcome.

Save the date: October 21, 2-5 pm St. Margaret’s At Home in the church hall. A drop-in event where you can connect with the people steering our music, Sunday School, Igloo@206, outreach, PWRDF, Altar Guild and other activity. The Rev. Jason Pollick will be there — a good place to introduce yourself to our new Rector.

Sunday hospitality: Please sign up to help from time to time with setting out food for our coffee hour and loading the dishwasher. Currently folk in the 11:30 congregation do that for us, which seems unfair. The sign up list is on the easel in the hall.

Sept. 24 — Social Media Sunday. Share your church experience today on Facebook, in a Tweet, or an Instagram selfie. Please include the Hashtag #SMS17 in your posts. Turn off any sounds first!
