EPIPHANY OUTREACH 2018
PASTORAL CARE COMMITTEE
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.
Worship to the Community
Epiphany offers Wednesday Eucharist's to Southgate, Royal Oak and
Kingsville Court residents in this community. Keep your eye on the

SUPPORT OUR MISSIONS
LOONIES FOR THE LORD
Save your stamps, for the Canadian Bible Society. There is a box at the back of the church for them and thank you.
COATS for ADULTS
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.
FOOD BANKOur 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.
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 MakersWe 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.
