Guess Who Came to Lunch?

Thanks to all who contributed to the meals and a special thanks to Kristie Clarke and Rob Cosh, Jennifer and Darren Meister, Natalie and Tim Tattersall, Wendy and John Thorpe, and Dawn Weir for opening their homes to fellow parishioners.

St. James Helps Clean the Thames

IMG_0500[1]A team from St. James Westminster joined the Thames River Clean-up and London’s Clean and Green on April 23. It was a beautiful spring day as the group gathered at Carfrae Park to meet up with the organizers from the Old South Community Organization.

We donned our gloves, collected a bag, and set to work. We found lots of litter, glass, and even a broom. We also found used needles and other drug supplies, which were put in a “sharps” container and disposed of safely and properly. We had a great time contributing to our community, and the Thames River is just a bit cleaner because of our efforts.

My Favourite Hymn – Holy, Holy, Holy!

Each week, you are invited to identify one of your favourite hymns. This week the hymn is “Holy, Holy, Holy!” submitted by Duncan Archibald.

Duncan Archibald: In elementary school, students were taught hymns to sing a few days before we had assemblies. “Holy Holy Holy” seemed a difficult hymn with words that didn’t rhyme and a slow slow melody. Why would they inflict that on us? But it stuck in my mind and the familiar words and melody have become something I look forward to singing now; it just keeps improving with age.
