UPCOMING EVENTS/REMINDERS/INVITATIONS/CELEBRATIONS 

  • Sunday morning was Remembrance Sunday at St. David's. With the communion table decorated with poppies and space established for the Wreathe to be placed later in the service, we were welcomed. Under the leadership of Rev. Peggy,  we were guided through a meaningful service of Remembrance, Thanksgiving, Hope and Peace.  Betsy Woolner, Eileen Ladd, Hugo Goasdoué Wallace and Heather McKeague helped with this morning's service. Music Ministry was led by the Chamber Choir under Brent's direction. We welcomed bag piper, Andrew Joo, and trumpeters, Pam Breuer & Anthony Edmunds to the service as they led us through familiar traditions - the placing of the wreathe and the Last Post and Reveille.  Sacred Service Coordinator for November, Betty Smith, and her team were at task this morning. 
  • In the balcony on Nov 10, 2019 were PSALT members (Projection, Sound and Light Team), Deb Charnuski and Michael Trew (slides by Alison Slater). In the office were Kerry Duncan McCartney and Bob Clare (counters).
