We are coming to the end of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, we are moving through the season of Epiphany, and the season of Lent is approaching quickly. Wherever we are and however we are feeling, let us remember: God is with us! Alleluia. Amen.

Hymn I Will Make You Fishers of Men
Prayer: Jesus Christ, our Saviour, alive and at large in the world, help us to follow and find you today in the places where we work and meet people, spend leisure time and make plans. Teach us to see through your eyes, and to hear the questions you ask, by the power of the Cross, and in the freedom of your Spirit, we pray. Amen. ( a prayer by John Taylor, bishop of Winchester, and printed in Voices United #564)
Hymn O Master Let Me Walk with Thee #560VU
We are continuing to collect reports for the annual report. This year’s report may be different from those we have prepared before, and some may feel that there is little or nothing to report, but if there is something to report on from 2021, please get them in to me (for Ormstown and Franklin) or to Evie Kerr (for Howick) by the end of the month if possible. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to give me a call.
We hold the residents and their families, as well as the staff of the Centre d’Accueil in our thoughts and prayers as they deal with an outbreak there. We pray for all who may be struggling with their health (physical and mental) at this time, as well as those who care for them. If I can help in any way, please let me know. Barbara
