St. Andrew’s – Vittoria

Greetings from Friends at St. Andrew’s in Vittoria

The season of spring is about to end, and summer is fast approaching. Psalm 74: 17 reminds us “All nature is within Your hands; You make the summer and the winter, too.” God, the Creator, is indeed generous and imaginative. What wonderful variety He provides us. The calendar for June itemizes several days for observance of different aspects of nature: World Environment Day, Canadian Environment Week, World Oceans Day and Canadian Rivers Day. It is our responsibility to care for His gifts.

June also affords us the opportunity to recognize the contributions of Indigenous Peoples both here in Canada and around the world. There is much for which we have to thank these friends, culturally, artistically, socially and politically. We are indeed united as citizens of Canada and the world and as God’s children.

Friends and family of St. Andrew’s United Church continue to gather for weekly worship on Sunday at 11:00 A.M. Although we do not have a regular minister, we are so fortunate that Phyllis Buchner, WL, and Rev. Brian Elder continue to provide spiritual guidance.

We would like to wish all our fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, uncles and all those men in our midst who share their time and talents with us a very Happy Father’s Day. Your guidance and example are so important to us. God bless you.

Our pianist and his wife are lucky enough to have won a trip to Northwest Territories and Nunavut. What is their gain is, however, our loss, but only for a month. St. Andrew’s will be on hiatus for the month of July but we will return to regular worship services on August 7. Please keep our travellers and the rest of our congregation in your prayers.

As always, God bless you and keep you in His care.
