On Nov 5 2016, representatives from the churches of Lanark and Arnprior Deaneries are meeting with the Ven. Peter John Hobbs and the diocesan working group for a deanery consultation. In preparation for this, we have been asked to look at parish statistics from the last 10 years and consider where we are now and where we see ourselves in the next 5 - 10 years. This is also a good time to consider the mission and ministry of this parish and prepare for our next Visioning Day on November 26.
St Paul’s and Almonte United Church (AUC) are partnering together to sponsor a refugee family from Syria. While this project is being spear headed by our two churches, it is very much a community initiative and any and all help is welcome. We are also working in collaboration with the Syrian Refugee Committee of Mississippi Mills which is a resource for any sponsoring group.
It’s hard to fill your mind with knowledge if you haven’t first filled your stomach – and that’s why Almonte and District High School (ADHS) has started a breakfast program for all of their students with help from local churches. Volunteers from Hillside Reformed Presbyterian Church, St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Cornerstone Community Church and the Almonte United Church work in rotation throughout the week to both prepare and clean up.
As an extension of the Lanark County Food Bank, St Paul’s will be offering a pick up site for food bank clients. The Parish House (70 Clyde Street), next to the church, will be open Tuesdays 2:00pm – 3:00pm.
