The week of September 15th
Dear St. Stephen’s church family,
Love and blessings in our Lord Jesus Christ! A few notes in this last week of summer:
1. Garage Sale for Camp Okema
Thank you to all who made the fundraising Garage Sale for Camp Okema such a success! We made at least $1250 to be shared 75% with Okema and 25% with our parish. (And I am the proud owner of a car jack, Christmas lights, a beautiful punch bowl…😊) The youth enjoyed a fun Friday night youth group kick off sorting through all sorts of interesting items and then going swimming in an outdoor pool.
2. English Language Conversation Classes
Tuesdays 6:30-8 pm
We are partnered with the Saskatoon Open Door Society to provide the venue and volunteers. Keep this program in your prayers as we reach out to the community.
3. Vestry Meeting
Thursday, September 19th, 7:00pm
4. Unfinished Projects
Friday, September 20th at 1:30 pm
This fellowship group reconvenes on Friday in the Mitchell Hall. Bring whatever you’re working on, and get some work done in good company–or just have coffee and chat!

6. Welcome Back to Church Sunday

7. Fall Supper!

Parish Cycle of Prayer:
For the month of September, we pray for Diocesan Synod, taking place October 3-5th. We pray that it may be a time of renewal and vision. We pray for our Bishop and for all delegates, as they work together for the building up of the church.
We pray for parish members: Robert and Lura Mae and family, and Patrick and Ruth and family (Anna, Matthew).
Faithfully, the Rev. Amy <><
