Youth Ministry

WORKING GROUP ON YOUTH

On January 23rd, this Working Group met, with a newly expanded membership representation from many serving in these ministry areas around the diocese, with a desire to follow up on the findings of the gathering events held last year.  

We began discussing future plans and goals.  Two areas of focus arose:

facilitating and enabling ways to connect those serving as leaders in these ministries, both online and face to face, to share resources and ideas
future events to help connect families and youth around the diocese.

Two sub-groups were formed, to enable these separate ministry areas to explore and plan more specifically for their area of ministry.  Their work will be on-going in the coming months.

The Working Group will be meeting again in the Spring to re-connect with how things are beginning to proceed. 

If you are interested in either of these ministry areas, you are invited to join the Facebook Group as per the link information below to begin connecting with those in the Sub-Group and others throughout the diocese. 

Should  you have questions or concerns about any of this information, please contact one of the Co-Chairs.

This is a question that is frequently asked. 

The Quarterly Prayer Calendar is made up as a Word document and PDF, so it has ended up under Documents rather than Calendars.

To find it, go to Documents on the Menu bar.  From there, it is 4. Prayer Calendar.

We try to have the next Quarter's information posted on the Website by the middle of the month previous to the start of the Quarter.

The 55th Annual Flower Festival will be held at Christ Church, Millarville on Saturday, July 15 and Sunday, July 16.

A Tea featuring scones, homemade strawberry jam and whipped cream will be served at the Church House, only on the Saturday, from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm.  Cost is $6.00 per person, $3.00 for children 6 and under.  Strawberry Recipe Cookbooks and jars of strawberry jam will be available for purchase.

As usual, the church, grounds, and cemetery will be beautifully decorated with flowers.  Donations of potted plants, floral arrangements and cut flowers are needed.  If you can help provide these, please call Cathie Scatterty at (403) 938-7717.  Flowers should be brought to the church on Friday evening (July 14) around 6:00 pm.  Children are welcome to help place flowers on the graves in the cemetery.

The Christ Church Millarville Ladies Guild is responsible for organizing the Tea, decorating the church and grounds, and helping serve at the Tea.  They appreciate the help of the Millarville Horticultural Society and members of the local community.

The flowers can still be viewed at our Church Service on Sunday, July 16 at 11:30 am.

Everyone is invited to attend.

The Synod Steering Committee for the Diocesan Synod being held October 13 & 14 has announced the registration fees for clergy and lay members of Synod to be $90 per member if payment is received on or before September 8, 2017.  After this date, the registration fee will be $120.  Payments must be made using the pre-payment form found on the Website, under Documents, #5. Synods, then Synod 2017-10 October.  If necessary, cheques can be post-dated to September 8, 2017.

Clergy Members of Synod are licensed clergy of the Diocese of Calgary.  Lay Members of Synod are named on the "Notice of Election of Lay Members of Synod" form that is part of the Annual Return forms. 

Anyone else who would like to attend the Synod is required to register as an Observer.  As in previous years, the number of observers is extremely limited, and registration will happen on a first-come, first-served basis.   The registration fee for Observers is $45 and must be paid with the submission of the registration form. 

Questions about the Synod registration process can be directed to the Diocesan Office.
