Take care of yourself and your family.  Numbers 6:24-26

May the Lord bless you and take care of you;
May the Lord be kind and gracious to you;
May the Lord look on you with favor and give you peace.


"Far be it from me to glory except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ." Galatians 6.14
Yesterday (Sept. 12th) was our first Sunday back with open worship. This week we are all expecting to enter into Phase 5 of reopening our province. There will be lifting of restrictions everywhere. 
At St Francis by the Lakes, we are reluctant to do away with all the guidelines of the last few months. Not everyone is comfortable with moving forward too quickly. So we will be recommending that we continue wearing our masks, implementing social distancing, and sanitizing on a regular basis. We will also continue to share communion in the same manner as we have been during the pandemic. 
We are also working on a plan to guide our transitions during the next few months. This plan will be shared for discussion at our next parish council. If you have any concerns or advice as we develop this, please, contact the rector or wardens. 
The next few months will be filled with hope and possibilities, but also concern and apprehension. We will walk together, moving ahead in a safe manner. 
Almighty God, whose Son our Saviour Jesus Christ was lifted high upon the cross that he might draw the whole world to himself, may we who rejoice in the mystery of our redemption, have grace to take up our cross and follow him, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever, Amen
Rev. Mark +
