Next Sunday there will be a 9:30 service in Franklin and in Howick we are hoping to hold an outdoor service, hopefully at the Knox Cemetery in St Louis de Gonzague at 11:00. If the weather does not cooperate we will be in the church as usual. Please keep in touch as decisions may have to be made next week about where the service will be.
The Trustees of Howick United Church will be providing some grocery gift cards to Ukrainian families that arrive in the area as a welcome. 4 cards have been purchased and more may be provided if needed. If you know of some families in the area, please let Debbi Templeton know. (also donations for more cards if needed gratefully accepted!)
There will be a meeting of St Paul’s Stewards held this week on Wednesday, June 22nd at 7:30 pm in the hall.

There will also be a bee to fix the berries on Wednesday June 29th in the hall, at 1pm. If you are able to come and help fix the berries, please bring a bowl or two and a knife as well as an apron.
