L'Arche is a treasure in our community of Transcona, their work with those living with intellectual difficulties is a beacon of light to humanity.
St George's received a letter recently asking for the support of friendship. They are beginning a 'special friend' program where volunteers meet with a core member and visit for a while, to socialize, go for coffee, have a walk around the mall or other similar activities.
Friendship and community are beautiful things to share. If you would like further information please contact Liz from L'Arche through an email here.
With the Anglican Church being in Full Communion with the Lutheran Church we get to do some cool things together.
This is a gentle reminder that in the icy times we have parishioners who are not so steady on their feet. Please keep the parking spots close to the church free for those who need to park closer to the building.
Having a blue disabled parking pass is only useful in the city of Winnipeg parking spots.
At St George's we use a much better system, it is called consideration . So please consider the needs of others :)
If you can spare an hour on either a Monday, Wednesday or Friday morning from 7:30-8:30, the breakfast club at Wayoata school would love to have you help serve breakfast. Pop the bread in the toaster and the kids will love you. It is fun and very rewarding to know that kids are learning better because they are fed!
Also at Wayoata School, any hour on a weekly basis to sit and listen to a child read is a great way to be involved with the young people in our community. The teacher in the classroom chooses the books, all you have to do is listen and support the child in their reading.
Please talk to Rev Helen if you are interested in either program.
2011 marked our 100th anniversary.

As part of the World Wide Anglican Communion, Diocese are encouraged to partner with Diocese around the world, to learn and support each other. For many year Rupert's Land Diocese has been in mutual partnership with the Diocese of Central Buganda.
It is a beneficial relationship of friendship
The House of Bishops is one of three "houses" or orders making up General Synod, the chief governing body of the Anglican Church of Canada. The other two houses are clergy and laity. Chaired by the Primate, the House of Bishops consists of all bishops in Canada, including diocesan, suffragan, and coadjutor bishops. The House of Bishops meets regularly and issues pastoral and other statements from time to time.
