Bishop Fenty's Retirement

Bishop Peter Fenty will be retiring in November 2020. Watch for opportunities to celebrate his 45 years of ministry and to thank him and his wife, Annie, for their contributions to church-life. "In the meantime, our good wishes and deep prayers go to both of them as they begin this new transition in their lives." wrote Bishop Andrew Asbil earlier today. As always, please share information received by e-mail with those you know do not have internet.

DEACON’S CORNER

The Christmas Toy Drive, which the parish has supported for many years and is sponsored by the Keswick Optimists Club, had to change its model of gift distribution to an adopt-a-family program in order to respect social distancing and disinfecting protocols. The parish sponsored six families. Thank you to everyone who participated.

The parish will once again be collecting funds in December to support PWRDF World of Gifts. Please clearly mark your donations to that they can be allocated correctly.

Milk bags to Sleeping Mats Unfortunately, we can no longer accept milk bags due to public health requirements during the pandemic. Thank you to those who have donated in the past.

The Georgina Community Food Pantry continues to be busy during this difficult time. The demand is expected to increase in the coming months as CERB ends. If you know someone in need of food contact the Food Pantry directly. Please consider making a cash donation through their website, by donating at grocery stores, or send cheques to the Parish of Georgina, P.O. Box 88, Sutton West L0E 1R0 clearly marked for the Food Pantry.
