Community Updates*

-Josie Campbell has moved to Garneau Hall.  Contact info from the Office.

-Great news that Jenny Nunes’ cancer was fully removed by surgery!  We give thanks for this and pray as she enters further preventative treatment.

-Please hold in your hearts and prayers our Murial Love – a long term member and lay reader at st. A’s – who was rushed to hospital this week following an internal rupture.  The medical outlook is not good for her and chances of recovery minimal.  However, we pray in faith and I invite you to hold her and the Love family in deep prayer this week.

May the Lord in his love and mercy uphold her by the grace and power of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.
