    invited"Invited," a series of short films and written resources, that seek to explore what it means to engage in genuine, Christian invitation. We begin with the conviction that "invitation" is at the very heart of the gospel--- that Jesus invites each one of us to come and follow Him, and being an invitational people is at the very core of our identity as Christians. Come and join us at the parish of the Resurrection in South River for this 6 week program, beginning 7pm on Thursday, April 16. All are welcome.

    1. Why invite?
    2. Whose invitation is it anyway?
    3. So who is invited?
    4. What gets in the way of us inviting?
    5. What does inviting look like today?
    6. What are the risks and rewards of inviting?

    What are we inviting people to?
    -- to learn and join in the way of Jesus Christ
    --a generous, loving people committed to the good news of Jesus Christ that transforms lives.

    A Note from the Rector’s Warden

    The Parish of the Resurrection is at a crossroads.  Our financial situation has been extensively reviewed by the Diocese and it has been clearly noted that our income has been slowly decreasing over a period of several years.  As a result, we have been unable to meet all of our financial commitments.

    The Diocese sees the Parish of the Resurrection as an important model of ministry for the future.  They want to invest in helping us turn our financial situation around.  The congregation, at a meeting on June 29, has accepted a proposal from the Diocese to accept a loan of $13, 000.00 to start us anew right now!  Going forward, we must meet all of our financial commitments on a monthly basis and if we can clearly demonstrate an increase in our givings by this December, the Diocese will consider forgiving approximately $30, 000.00 owed in synod assessments.  What a gift to be given – a fresh start!

    Do you value worshipping together as a community in our church house?  Do you value the Christian education programs offered at our parish?  Do you value the partnerships that our parish has established with those in need in our communities?  Do you value the Parish of the Resurrection as your spiritual home?

    There are many ways that you can help the parish meet our new goals – increase your weekly free will offering, subscribe to the pre-authorized debit program to give more consistently, contribute to the Sunshine Campaign, support our parish fundraisers, and invite others to join us in worshipping at the Parish of the Resurrection………….

    Since our last congregational meeting in the spring, we have already started to improve our financial situation with increased free will offerings and strong support of our fundraising efforts. Please speak to Father Gerald, the wardens or any member of the vestry to let us know how you can help.  We are confident that everyone is committed to the Parish of the Resurrection and that we can expect a prosperous future together in faith and love.

    Jesus calls us to lay down our lives and to serve others. There are many ways to follow Jesus in lives of loving service to others. This Sunday we will be honouring the service and dedication of the members of the Bay de Grave Fire Department (the same invitation will be extended to the Brigus Fire Department early in the new year).

    Fire trucks to tour will be available after the liturgy for young and old alike.

    It is also Pot Luck Sunday. Bring along a dish of food to share, and your time to share in the friendship of the community of Church.

    refugeeGood day,
    Attached is a letter from Archdeacon Amanda which is an invitation and opportunity or people from the archdeaconry of Trinity Conception to respond, with our diocese, to the current refugee crisis.
    For those interested, we will be having a congregational meeting after the liturgy on Sunday, November 1. Pass the word around to anyone who may not be on our e-mail distribution.
    Peace
    Father Gerald+

    The Diocese of Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador

    Archdeaconry of Trinity-Conception

     

    October 15, 2015

     

    Dear Friends:

     

    I write to you today on behalf of the Clergy of the Archdeaconry of Trinity-Conception.

     

    By now you have all had opportunity to read Bishop Peddle’s Pastoral Letter on the Syrian Refugee Crisis. In it he gives us information on a Diocesan plan to assist in this global crisis by “…[helping] facilitate, enable, and support parishes and diocesan groups to sponsor refugee families.” He also calls on each and every parish to “…engage in a process of discernment with respect to what role each parish would be willing and able to play in refugee sponsorship and support.”

     

    As you can imagine, adjusting to a new country and culture is extremely difficult. Many specialized programs and supports are necessary to help families transition from Syria. It is important that refugees be near such services. Because of this, it would not be practical for us in the Archdeaconry of Trinity Conception to sponsor a refugee family. However, there is still much we can do to contribute to our Diocesan Plan by assisting parishes who do sponsor refugees. Discerning ways in which we can do this is not only a request from our Bishop; it is also a Christ given mandate to us as Christians.

     

    At a meeting of clergy from the Archdeaconry, it was suggested that we provide opportunities to the parishes of the Region to get involved by:

    1. Contributing financially to sponsorship through a special envelope that would go to an Archdeaconry Fund for Diocesan sponsorship; and
    2. Compiling a list of volunteers who would like to give their time and talent to helping families settle in Newfoundland. This would involve travel to St. John’s.

    While securing funding to sponsor refugee families is important, the necessity of volunteers to spend time with the families and help them transition to life in Canada is even more important. As this process unfolds, and Syrian families arrive on Newfoundland soil, there are more needs that will be identified and other concrete ways in which parishes can help.

    My friends, in St. Matthew’s Gospel Jesus says, “I was a stranger, and you welcomed me…” Let us prayerfully discern how we, as Parishes and individuals, can tangibly contribute to our Diocesan response to this global crisis by giving financially or by offering our time and talents. It is in so doing that we will know the truth of Jesus’ words, “…when you did it to the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”

     

    In Christ’s Service,

     

    The Venerable Amanda Taylor+

    Territorial Archdeacon, Trinity-Conception
