The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - Community - Mar­ion MacDon­ald

The mem­bers of St. John’s Angli­can Church Women’s group, Cra­paud, held their Oc­to­ber meet­ing in the se­niors com­mon room re­cently.

Pres­i­dent Marilyn My­ers opened the meet­ing by read­ing a poem. The hymn, Take Time to be Holy, was sung. Inez MacDon­ald led the de­vo­tions by read­ing from Chicken Soup for a Mother’s Heart and Cho­co­lates for a Mother’s Heart and then read­ing a Beat­i­tude for nurs­ing home res­i­dents.

This was fol­lowed by the ACW Pur­pose and Prayer.

Roll call was an­swered by the mem­bers with a verse of Scrip­ture. Min­utes of the last meet­ing were read and ap­proved. The trea­surer gave the fi­nan­cial re­port.

Plans for the an­nual hot turkey din­ner at the church on Nov. 7 were dis­cussed and lists were given out.

Grab bags will be sold on the day of the sup­per with items do­nated by the mem­bers.

Cor­re­spon­dence con­sisted of a thank-you let­ter from the Up­per Room Angels com­mit­tee and a let­ter from the Nova Sco­tia ACW board.

The pres­i­dent thanked those who helped dec­o­rate the church for Thanks­giv­ing and every­one who sup­plied food for the pot luck meal fol­low­ing a ser­vice which Bishop Ron Cut­ler at­tended.

The food col­lected at Thanks­giv­ing was given to En­gle­wood School for the Farm Credit food drive stu­dents and staff took part in.

The group will again pack shoe boxes for the Mis­sion to Seaman pro­gram in Hal­i­fax.

Cal­en­dars to cel­e­brate 300 years of con­tin­u­ous min­istry of the Angli­can Church were pur­chased by the mem­bers. The theme for this an­niver­sary, to be held in 2010, is A Jour­ney Just Be­gun.

The next meet­ing is Nov. 18 with Gla­dys Lowther in charge of de­vo­tions.

The pres­i­dent spoke about the an­nual re­treat held re­cently at Kin­dred Spir­its Re­sort in Cavendish, where the theme was We Gather for Wor­ship and Scat­ter for Ser­vice.

The guest speaker chose the Para­ble of the Mus­tard Seed to demon­strate how a small seed can grow into a plant or tree and how each per­son as an in­di­vid­ual can grow as a Chris­tian and of how every­one needs quiet times to think and pray.

Pie and ice cream were served be­fore every­one left for home.
