  EPIPHANY OUTREACH 2018

OUTREACH HIGHLIGHTS

  • The Harvest donations of food items decorate the church and are later donated to the Kingsville Foodbank following our Harvest Thanksgiving Services.

  • Canterbury Donations
    This summer was our annual collection of essentials for the new students of Canterbury College. It was a car full!

  • In June, Epiphany hosted the first ever PWRDF Food Grains Gala in our Diocese. It was an elegant success!

  • Our church bell was found to have a problem with the hammer that with the cold weather of winter could easily crack this over century old treasure. Thanks to the generous donation from Don & Hazel the clapper was removed and sent to the original crafting company in Pennsylviania for a newly molded clapper. It was installed in time to ring Easter Sunday when we rededicated the bell with an ancient tradition of ringing it once for every year since the resurrection.

  • Essex Deanery Golf Tournament was Wed June 20, 2018 at 7 Lakes. We sent 4 teams to support the Essex Deanery Children and Youth Ministry last year! Fr Bryan & Art cooked steaks again for the event after their own round of golf! Same time next year everyone!

  • May Rummage Sale raised $2,486.80 ($2325.65 last fall) Thank you for your support both as donours and shoppers!

  • Church Breakfast was Sunday April 29th for Huron Hunger Fund Sunday.  We previously held a Soup lunch to help Lillian on her mission with PWRDF to Malawi. Almost $400 was raised. She returned to tell us of her trip and we almost raised $400 again through the breakfast.


  • We collected birthday kits! We donated cake mixes, sparklers, icing, foil baking trays etc...required to bake a cake. Kits were compiled for the foodbank so that children related to the foodbank can have a birthday cake to celebrate with.  Thank you.

  • The complimentary Christmas Dinner Dec 25th,
  • Anonymous donours again financed gifts for families in Kingsville for Christmas.

We have collected for a Medical Mission to Haiti, on Mothers' Day corsages are distributed, Operation Christmas Child boxes are filled as well. In all, we actively participate in missions.


PASTORAL CARE COMMITTEE

Pastoral Care Team Meeting

The pastoral Care Committee performs an extremely valued ministry to the parish, by keeping in touch with people outside the parish. As well as visiting, they keep in touch with the most vulnerable through seasonal remembrances, also mailing pray cards to parishioners.

We meet at 9:30 am on the second Sunday of each month to update on our outreach ministry to shut-ins.

SUPPORT OUR MISSIONS

COATS for ADULTS

Starts Oct 31st.

Our Collection of coats for the Adult winter coats program, is very popular. Coats went out to those in need, as well as hat/mitten/scarf sets. We do keep some coats but after the distribution days most of the coats then move on to another town for continued distribution.

 

LOONIES FOR THE LORD * HHF/PWRDF *

Loonies
On HHF Sunday May 6th we  attempted to arrange donated loonies the length of the isle.  We again raised over $1000 which is taken to the Diocesan Annual Synod service for the Huron Hunger Fund/PWRDF to help with projects throughout Canada and the world. 

 

Save your stamps, for the Canadian Bible Society. There is a box at the back of the church for them and thank you.

 

 

FOOD BANK

Our parish collects for the Kingsville Food bank by not only publishing needs in the church bulletin weekly but also having a grocery cart at the entrance for people to easily donate. Marylin Allen retired as the lead coordinator after 25 years. We thank her for her immense dedication to this cause in our community.

CURRENT PROJECTS

The parish received a donation of wool and we are turning that into small blankets for the laps of wheelchair users. Some are crocheting while others are knitting. We could use more volunteers; you make what you like 30" x45". Please see Vicki


ACW Sponsored Pie Makers

We make fruit pies at festival time with local ingredients and the rest of the year we make meat pies. This group is a major donor to Epiphany development projects as well as other projects locally. It is fun working and lunching together in support of the parish and the community! Come out anytime Men too! We could use your strong shoulders to roll dough and move pies to the freezers

DOLL MAKERS BECOME QUILTERS

The doll makers of Epiphany are now also making small quilts for the hospital's Neonatal unit. These quilts are from our excess material during the doll making for hospitalized children. They will help families of stillborn children as well as others with loss or distress.

The hospital requires 60 dolls a month!

We are also creating tote bags for the inmates at the Windsor jail as part of this ministry.
