Maritime Men’s Rally
April 23, 2016 (Saturday)
“HEARTPRINTS” is to be the theme of the next Maritime Men’s Rally slated for Saturday, APRIL 23, 2016 at Trinity-St. Stephen’s U.C. in Amherst. ALL MEN are invited to mark the date and plan to attend this gathering. The theme speaker started life in Mozambique, then the U.S. and later Canada as a refugee. Here, in his chosen country, he went on to study and was ordained to ministry, and is now a chaplain in the Canadian Forces, having served in that role here and in Afghanistan. MAJOR CHARLES DEOGRATIAS (his chosen name meaning “thanks be to God”) will share his story … and YOU need to be there! Meet Charles now here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFPPq8nUouY
A family that prays together derives strength, solace, and inspiration from that act of worship. A prayer group will gather in the minister’s study at 10 a.m each Sunday. All are welcome to join in this special time of fellowship. If you have any requests for prayers, please pass them along to Rev. Stright or Valerie Macdonald.
The World Council of Churches maintains an Ecumenical Prayer Cycle website.
