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.

DOLL MAKERS BECOME QUILTERS

The 3D framed gift framed in our parish hall is one of our dolls that was used for our ongoing hospital program. Some of our dolls have also gone overseas to help with childrens' surgeries. This really puts the work into perspective and we truly appreciate their visit.

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

SUPPORT OUR MISSIONS

LOONIES FOR THE LORD * HHF/PWRDF *

Loonies
On HHF Sunday May 3rd we attempted to arrange donated loonies the length of the isle. We did it and had to start back again! Thank you everyone for a donation over $1000 which was taken to the Diocesan Annual Synod service for the Huron Hunger Fund/PWRDF to help with projects throughout Canada and the world. 

 

COATS for ADULTS

in November

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 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

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.

Dresses made by our sewing group for young girls in Africa are on their way. Please support this and our worthwhile doll project initiated by Deacon Jane.
This is very fulfilling and ongoing for the parish. The hospital requires 60 dolls a month!
