No Sunday School this Sunday
A reminder to the parents that there will be no Sunday
School this Sunday, October 12 (the Thanksgiving long weekend).
Thanks to the parents for filling up the snack schedule. The
children are enjoying the variety (the teachers are too!)
Mother’s Union Meeting
The regular monthly Mothers' Union branch meeting will be
held on Wednesday, October 15.
We will meet at the hall at 7:00 pm for refreshments,
followed by a short business meeting and Advent candle making.
Guests are always welcome to join us.
This year’s Harvest Supper will be held on Sunday,
November 2 at Cathedral Memorial Hall, with a turkey supper
served at 5:30 pm.
As always, this will be a wonderful chance to celebrate the
bounty of the season and the richness of our life together as a
Cathedral family. There are many opportunities for all to contribute
to the celebration – sign-up sheets to donate food or volunteer your
time will be posted at the back of the Cathedral for the next several
weeks. Even if you are not able to help in these ways, you will
certainly contribute through your presence at the supper. A free-will
offering will be collected at the door.
As some may remember, we have had difficulty in past years
with limited seating at the supper, due to fire regulations in the Hall.
Last year’s attempt to solve this problem by issuing tickets was not
entirely successful, so this year we have decided not to issue tickets,
but just to remind you that this is a “first-come, first-served” event.
So come early if you want to be sure of a seat!
Also, a reminder that this is an opportunity for members of
the Cathedral and their immediate family to celebrate together –
there are many other Cathedral events to which friends and
acquaintances can be invited.
We look forward to seeing you on November 2. Please
remember to check out the sign-up sheets at the back of the
Cathedral for ways you can help to make this a wonderful evening
for all!

A Fond Farewell
Douglas Mullin, our Cathedral Verger for the past three
years, has decided to move back home to the Miramichi, having

We sincerely thank Doug for his faithful service over the
past three years and wish him the very best in his future endeavours.
God bless you very much, Doug.

”The the power of God that brings salvation...first

same measure in which we have received it.” - P.F. Bresee

them facing today's challenging world.
PWRDF Sends Funds to Aid Displaced People in Iraq PWRDF has
announced an initial grant of $10,000 through the ACT
Alliance to provide aid to some of the over one million
people displaced following recent conflict in northern and
western Iraq (including Mosul, the second largest city in
the country.) These newly displaced people are joining
over 200,000 Syrian refugees who are already sheltering in north
eastern Iraq.
Christian, Shiite, Zoroastrian, and Kurdish people in
particular are fearful for their future under the Islamic State of Iraq and
Levant (ISIL) which has blitzed into northern and western Iraq in the last
6 weeks, pushing the Iraqi national army out of Mosul and large swaths
of northern and western Iraq.
ACT Alliance members Lutheran World Federation (LWF)
and Christian Aid (CA) are providing food, clean water and
psychosocial support and trauma counselling in the Kurdish region,
Karbala region, and Nineveh Plain area of the Mosul Governorate of
Iraq. The response will provide:
12,500 displaced families and their host communities with
access to clean water
5500 vulnerable families with emergency food relief
5000 vulnerable people with support services for
psychosocial and health care
400 families with needed household supplies
400 families with health and hygiene kits
over 400 families with cash assistance.
