FRITZ IS FOUR! Join our celebration Saturday, July 20th

It’s Fritz’s 4th birthday and what better excuse to celebrate!

We will start the day with a Riverfront Walk along the Fraser in New Westminster (because what dog doesn’t like a healthy walk!) We will then head to the church for yummy hot dogs and treats… and patting and scratches and running and rolling in the grass (dogs are invited to participate in that last part also).

If you wish to join us for The Walk we will meet at the church at 9 o’clock sharp then head down the hill.

If you wish to just come for The Party we will be back at the church by 11ish.

Fritz has asked that you PLEASE DO NOT BRING ANY PRESENTS as he has all the chew toys, balls, squeaky things, stuffies, and treats a dog could ask for. If you feel you simply must do something, Fritz would be so happy if you helped his pals at the SPCA or your local shelter with a donation in his honour.

Sacred Singing Circle

The Sacred Singing Circle is a gathering open to all people. It will be a chance to connect with our deepest selves, with our circles of community, and with the Divine who has no name.

We will sing, hold silence, break bread and share prayers. Leaders of the circle are: Emilie Smith, parish priest of St. Barnabas, and recently returned from a Music That Makes Community intensive workshop (musicthatmakescommunity.org/) and Patti Powell, renowned community choir director. (pattipowellchoirs.com). Her choirs are members of the Ubuntu network: (ubuntuchoirs.net)

Our first circle is set for Sunday, January 27th, 1 — 3pm. We hope you can help us share the news.
