Weekly Services – March 6

9:00 am – Traditional (Book of Alternative Services)

10:30 am – Contemporary (Book of Alternative Services)


While the tone of Lent can be rather solemn I believe that the purpose of Lent is to help us celebrate. In Lent we prepare to celebrate again at Easter what God has accomplished in Jesus through his death and resurrection, because knowing how to celebrate such a thing takes thoughtful and prayerful preparation.

On Sunday we will be looking at one of the most beloved parables of Jesus, a parable which, like Lent, is meant to teach us about what it means to truly celebrate. In fact, the parable we’ll be looking at is one of a series of parables told by Jesus, each of which ends with a celebration. Unlike the other parables in the series, however, the one we’ll be looking at also ends with a cliff-hanger. It ends with one of the central characters standing outside the celebration, and leaves us with the question “will he join in and celebrate?”

If you want to read ahead before we gather on Sunday the parable I’m talking about can be found in the gospel of Luke, chapter 15, verses 11 to 32.

I hope you’re able to join with us in our celebrations this Sunday and as we continue to learn what it means to truly celebrate in the way that Jesus teaches.

Until then… God bless,

The Rev. David Turner

Rector of the Anglican Parish of Hampton

Hampton Food Basket

 Arrangement is in place for people to give donations on a monthly basis to the Food Basket through Canada Helps; this convenient method allows folk to commit any amount, large or small, on a monthly basis and the Food Basket receives a cheque for said amount. For many, a small amount each month is hardly noticed, $10.00 a month will result in a tax receipt at year’s end of $120.00 and will benefit the donor as well as providing much needed help for those living in poverty.

“Memory Cafe  Everyone is welcome to join us at the Memory Cafe to be held on Sunday, March 13 at St Paul’s Church Hall, 4 Church Ave, Rothesay, NB, from 2-4 pm. We will be enjoying a social time with refreshments, an information session with Shelley Shillington about ‘Cycling Without Age’ and entertainment by the Recycled Teenagers.  It is a great outing for those who have the disability of dementia, and it is a program of the Alzheimer’s Society provided free of charge.”

Dementia is a progressive disease characterized by symptoms that range from mild memory loss to severe cognitive difficulties, which make it hard to manage daily activities without help. No matter what the stage, dementia can be terrifying and difficult to accept.

However, letting people know what is going on with you can help them understand why you’re acting in new and unexpected ways. Sharing your diagnosis, particularly with those closest to you, also allows everyone to talk about the future, help you maintain the healthiest lifestyle possible, and resolve any stigma before you lose the ability to voice your opinion.
