Are you planning on attending Rev. Alison’s Induction at St. Martin’s on
Sunday September 22nd? St. Martin’s has contacted us, and they have limited
parking, and are arranging for overflow parking (with a bit of a walk to the church).
We are exploring the option of renting a school bus to take us all there and back with
no parking concerns. We need to know how many would be interested in doing this,
and it would need to be a fairly firm commitment. It could cost about $10.00 each. If
you are interested in this, please add your name to the sign-up sheet on the
Manderley bulletin board before the end of July.
Summer is here, and even though our regular church school program has ended;
we will be providing a church school program during the summer months. As
with previous years, instead of splitting into three classes, we will be offering one
class for all ages and we will be using the "Seasons of the Spirit" curriculum. If
you are interested in teaching a class for a week or two, please feel free to sign
your name on the Church School sign-up sheet at the Manderley Door entrance or
speak to Angela McCullock (Church School Coordinator) during Coffee Hour. New
teachers are welcome!
This morning, we offer the Rite of Healing at both services. For those who wish, this is
an opportunity to pray specifically for healing. Since Biblical times, this prayer has been
accompanied by anointing with oil. At 8:30am, please proceed to the chancel steps
after you have received Communion. At 10:30am, please proceed to St. Andrew’s
chapel after you have received Communion.
Ministry of Hospitality Opportunity-
In the letter to the Romans, Paul encourages us as a community to practice
hospitality. If you would like to participate in the ministry of hospitality by helping with
Coffee hour after the 10 a.m. service…
The Coffee Hour list posted on the Manderley Bulletin Board if quite empty!
Please consider taking a turn to prepare coffee, tea, and goodies. It doesn’t have to
be a big spread, a loaf or two or some cookies, or cheese and crackers, would be just
fine. If several people went together it makes it much easier - and fun. All you have
to do is bring milk and cream, and whatever food you want to provide. The sugar,
coffee and tea are here. Then take what you spent on the items you brought out of
the proceeds from the basket on the table.
Thank you to everyone who braved the closure of the Kingston Rd & Warden
intersection to come to the Art Show and Sale last Saturday. Grace MacPherson.
Farewell and Every Blessing to Carmine: Carmine Lappano, our Organist and
Music Director, has submitted his resignation, effective September 1st. He will begin a
new music ministry in partnership with his wife, Michelle in Bowmanville. While this
news is sad for us, we are deeply grateful for the blessing of Carmine’s ministry over
the past two years and wish him, Michelle, and their family every blessing on this
new journey. Please join us on Sunday, August 25th following the 10:30 a.m. Service
for a special celebration in honour of Carmine.

Watch this space for information and ways you can help.
Linens and Lace – This table sells fancy tablecloths, napkins, doilies, and other
linens, as well as china cups and saucers and crystal. If you have any of these
antique items, in good condition, taking up space in drawers, that you don’t want
anymore, we can sell them on this table at the Bazaar.
Jewellery and Accessories another opportunity for you to clear out some lovely old
jewellery and make room for new! Donate it to the Jewellery and Accessories table
and the ladies who work on this table will polish it up, display it beautifully and “turn
your unwanted jewellery into cash. Oh Yeah” (sorry apparently I watch too much T.V.)
