News & Announcements
- Linked is an appeal for the Migrant Workers provided by Catherine Swatten. Full details are in the MW Oct 22 cookie appeal document. We are reluctant to let the workers leave without a gesture of appreciation. With your help, we hope to present each worker with a small box of cookies and a greeting of farewell. Along with the cookies we will be delivering clothing, shoes and travel bags, collected over the past few years. No more are needed at present. We are relying on your generosity to provide 2 dozen cookies or squares (home-made or purchased) and deliver them to Catherine’s home at 2 Parkshore Place Carlisle or to Kilbride Church on Wednesday 19th October. Receptacles (coolers) will be placed outside on that date. In addition, we are seeking volunteers to participate in the fun task of packing the boxes at Kilbride church on Thursday, October 20th October starting at 2:00 pm. We feel sure that an angel named Sharon will accompany us in this work and we will be blessed in fulfilling her legacy of love.
- Thank you to all the Carlisle folks who lovingly and with great effort organized many of the elements of the Celebration of Life for Sharon Banks last Saturday Sept 24, 2022. The service and fireworks were exactly what Sharon would have loved. Maureen has a 2 minute video of the 10 minute fireworks. She would like to share in this email but the file is too big. She will share in person after church.
- We don’t have a further update regarding Jack and Thelma. No news is good news. Rev. Allison was able to visit last week and gave encouraging words on their status.
- Oct 16, 2022 is the typical date for the Kilbride United Church Anniversary Service. Please provide your input for the service to Rev. Allison or Maureen.
