Rev. Mike has hit the road running with his first services and the Parish is gearing up for a BIG month.
Tomorrow, Monday February 3, is open house at the Rectory, 10.30 – 12.30 as Steph and Mike welcome parishioners on a drop in when you’re free basis.
Next Saturday, February 8, is the Parish’s Annual Garage Sale with hundreds of pieces of furniture, outdoor good, books, clothing, toys, home goods and treasures up for sale.
(Above) Sisters Kyanah and Mattiah admire a valuable lead crystal serving bowl which will be sold to a discerning buyer on Saturday.
The Garage Sale, part of Dorrigo’s Annual Community Events Calender, will run from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m... First in gets the bargains!
On Sunday, February 23, we will have our Annual Meeting preceded by a Combined Service beginning at 9 a.m.
We are seeking nominations for 2014 leadership roles in the Parish including: Wardens, Parish Councillors, synod reps and people to take responsibility for finance, youth, scripture, and media.
Nominations need to be in by February 16.
On February 23 we will host a visit by CMS missionary in Nepal, Kirstin Hawkshaw, formerly from Bellingen. Kirstin has been a key missionary focus for our Parish during her three year posting overseas.
Kirstin will be back in Dorrigo on February 27 for a Pot Luck Dinner in the hall at 6 p.m. Kirstin will have an opportunity to talk to people and answer questions about her work and ministry.
As we want the evening to be more dinner than luck, families are asked to bring a pot (with something nice inside!)
Special Prayers for Mike, Steph, Sophie and Ben
