Dear Family and Friends of St Andrews,
Just a reminder that the service this Sunday is at the German Church at 11 and it will be Communion. It is our annual Eccumenical Service with the other International Churches so see you there. There will be no service at St. Andrews!
At the Committee meeting there was further disucssion about taking up jobs in the Church which have been assumed by older members for many years. One is Lay Eucharistic Ministers. This would involve assisting the Chaplain with setting up and serving communion. One person has stepped forward to assume these duties and more are always needed. The other is Sacristan. This would involve setting up the altar for Sunday Morning and other times of the year and maintenance of linens. These are rewarding and necessary ministries so I would encourage anyone to see me and talk about it. As Father Quigley said to me when I took up serving at the Altar,” the lord will bless you for it.”
In a previous letter I presented you with the schedule for the remainder of the year, so here it is below:
SUNDAY THE 10TH OF NOVEMBER REMEMBERANCE SUNDAY. SPECIAL SERVICE FOLLOWING AT THE COMMENWEALTH AND GERMAN CEMATARIES.
SUNDAY THE 24TH OF NOVEMBER PATRONAL FEAST OF ST. ANDREW FOLLOWED BY DINNER AT THE HAGA FORSAMLING.
SUNDAY THE 15TH AND WEDNESDAY THE 18TH OF DECEMBER AT 6 PM FESTIVAL OF LESSONS AND CAROLS.
FRIDAY THE 20TH OF DECEMBER CAROLS AROUND THE CRIB AT 1530. WILL INCLUDE REFRESHMENTS FOR THE CHILDREN AND EVERYONE PRESENT.
WEDNESDAY THE 25TH OF DECEMBER THE FEAST OF THE NATIVITY OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST. SERVICE IN THE CHURCH AT 11 AM.
Please invite your friends and family and I look forward to seeing you there,
Best Chaplain Bruce
