On August 18, 2018 at 11:30 a.m. The Right Rev. Mary Irwin Gibson will be at St James Anglican Church in Bedford for a service of Recognition and Appreciation for the Ven. J. Wallace Sparling and Dawn Sparling's 50 plus Years of Service with the Diocese of Montreal. There will be a pot luck luncheon after the service. All are welcome.
The Worship Committee is trying to organise a visiting schedule. There will be a paper on the counter in the Hall to sigh up to be a visitor. Also one to make suggestions on people who you think needs visiting. Please specify restrictions if you have any. Also I would like to ask all of you to phone Wendy at home 450 248 2739 as soon as you hear of someone who needs visiting so I can arrange a visit as soon as possible. Thank you
