This Sunday September 18th, St. Philip’s will be holding our annual fall BBQ. This BBQ marks the return to regular activities at the church. If you check out our post on last September’s happenings you’ll see many of the groups that call St. Philip’s home.
Doors are open at 10:00 am. The service begins at 11 am. Immediately following the service there is a BBQ on the front lawn. We should be ready to start eating at about 12:30 pm. Hot dogs, hamburger, and buns will be provided. We hope you can join us at 11:00 am for our celebration of Holy Eucharist, but if you can’t please feel to swing by and join us for the BBQ. We would also like to encourage people to bring potluck salads, beverages or desserts for the BBQ. However, if you are unable to do so, we still invite you to stop for the chance to meet your neighbours at St. Philip’s.
The Barbecue will go on rain or shine. If it is raining, we will eat inside in the Memorial Hall.
Fall at St. Philip’s
Our Fall Barbecue is just the beginning of our year. We will once again be holding our Rememberance Day service in support of the St. Boniface-Norwood Legion, on November 11. On November 11 we are also holding our annual Roast Beef Dinner. Two weeks later on the 25th of November we will be welcoming J.D. Huston as he performs his one man play, Screwtape, based on the works of C.S. Lewis. More details will be made available as we come closer to those dates.
September also marks the return to regular uses from some of St. Philip’s tenants. The Bolero Dance Theatre will be back in the swing of things. As well, Sparks, Brownies, Guides, Pathfinders and Rangers are on the go. Saturday evenings and Sunday mornings St. Philip’s also plays host to The Theotokos of the Life-Giving Spring Mission.
