  2. Special Vestry, Sun., April 7: A very short special vestry meeting will be held on Sun., Apr. 7 after the 10:30 a.m. service to elect a Deputy Warden (Linda Fawcett), a St. Aidan's Fund Manager (Adam Gordon), and designate additional parochial organizations to be represented on the Advisory Board (the Stewardship Committee and the Invite-Welcome-Connect Committee).

  3. You are invited to our Earth Day Celebration on Sat., April 20 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. We will share stories, activities, and crafts for all ages.

  4. Elizabeth needs your recycled items: jar lids, bottle lids, medium sized tin cans, bubble wrap, newspapers, crayons, and corks for craft-making on Earth Day. Collection basket may be found in the Narthex.

  5. New Psalter Launch: Over the last several months at Emmanuel College, our Music Ministry Coordinator Michael Pirri, has been compiling a psalter for his Integrative Practicum as part of the Master of Sacred Music program. This new resource is developed for The Liturgical Psalter approved for use by The Anglican Church of Canada General Synod in 2016. We’ve already been singing from this resource this year, but Michael will be presenting this completed work, along with a new website, next Sat., April 13, at 11 a.m. You can register for the webinar by visiting www.plainsong.org.

  6. Confirmation and bishop’s visit: On Sun., April 28, we will welcome our area bishop, the Right Reverend Kevin Robertson, who will preach, confirm youth and adults, and celebrate the Eucharist. We will gather for just one worship service that day, at 10:30 a.m., with a festive reception to follow to welcome our bishop and honour our confirmands.

  7. Altar flower dedications: Several dates from April to August are open. See the binder in the Narthex for a full list of dates. If you would like to donate for a specific date, please fill in the information on the list.

  8. Beach Interfaith Outreach: Beach Interfaith Outreach: Locations and dates are listed in the Beach Metro News. Tues., April 9, 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. is the next lunch here. As part of St. Aidan’s involvement in the Beach Interfaith Outreach Committee, we support the Grace Pascoe Care Centre. Your weekly donations (to the basket by the church office) are gratefully received.

  9. The East End Refugee Committee will be welcoming a new family from Myanmar very soon. The family of five needs help to get settled here in Canada. Monetary donations can be made to St. Aidan’s; specify that it is for the EERC. In addition, we are looking for donations including a bunk bed with a double on the bottom and a single on the top, a dresser, linens and a number of kitchen items. Email Fausta.  

 10. The Beach Cares is sponsoring a Syrian family of five, who arrived on January 30. Our fundraising has achieved about two-thirds of the funding we will need for the full year of sponsorship but we need roughly $25,000 more. If you would like to contribute to the support, please go to the St. Aidan's website, (https://staidansinthebeach.com) Go to the "Giving" tab. When you open the page you will see a bar that says "Donation Details”. Below that bar you will see a tab that says "Fund". Hit the "v" cursor on the right and it will show "The Beach Cares Refugee Fund (Syria) as the number 2 option. Click on that. Or you may make a donation by cash or cheque to Church of St. Aidan, with a note "The Beach Cares." Or you may use the QR code below.

11. Euchre: Join us on Tuesday nights from 7-9 p.m. for a fun and friendly evening of progressive Euchre downstairs in the main hall. Beginners welcome. $5.00 to play. All proceeds go to our community outreach.
