A special Thank You to the St. Philip’s Altar Guild, for beautifully decorating the church for Thanksgiving!
Saturday Talk on Fraud
On Saturday, October 14, St. Philip’s Outreach Group hosted a presentation by OPP Detachment Commander Acting Staff Sergeant Sean Guscott. Sean was very open and understanding that seniors are falling victim to fraud, and has witnessed it in the County.
Below are a few of the slides Acting Staff Sergeant Sean Guscott presented to the group. The dollar value of the fraud being reported was surprising, especially as it is estimated that only 5% is actually reported. Sean answered many questions from the room, which was very much appreciated.
See what fun we’ve been up to this summer!
Celebration of Ministry & Tree Dedication
On Sunday, June 11, 2023, we had a double celebration! We honoured the ministry of our parish priest and pastor, Nancy Beale, as on Wednesday, June 7th she was installed officially as a Canon in the Diocese of Ontario. Nancy was actually made a Canon in 2020, but due to the pandemic, the celebration recognizing her dedication and service to the church was postponed. We also celebrated our lay reader, Paula Walker, as she was honoured with an Award of Merit at the Diocese of Ontario Synod in May, 2023. Click HERE to read what Bishop Oulton said about our Paula!
Then we dedicated this tree, as a recognition of St. Philip’s part in Bishop Oulton’s 160 Tree Project. St. Philip’s planted over 160 trees on parishioners’ properties in celebration of Bishop Oulton’s retirement.
A tradition at St. Philip’s is a May 2-4 weekend paddle! This year the weather was cool, but hey, no rain – so we had a great time! Click here for more photos!
