Thank you all for continuing to pray for Mr. Carter.  Here is today’s update from his wife: “Keith is still on oxygen and will not be going home today, but things are looking really good [for him to go home] tomorrow. He is feeling much better since pain meds are closer together and he slept well last night.”

30 OCTOBER 2011

Today is the Fourth Sunday Before Advent.  Remember that we have Sunday School for all ages, beginning at 9:30 a.m.  The Adult Forum will work through Chapter 3 of “Advent Conspiracy,” which is entitled, “Worship Fully.”  Holy Eucharist begins at 10:30 a.m.  This Sunday we will continue to focus on Jesus experience at the Temple following His triumphal entry into Jerusalem.  He leave the Temple today, after confronting the Scribes and Pharisees, and begins to turn the attention of His disciples toward the destruction of Temple and Jerusalem, and even further, to the consummation of all things.  Today’s Homily is entitled…”The End Is Near!”  Let’s take time to work through what that means together.






– 6 November 2011, First Annual Parish Meeting.  Our parish will observe our first annual parish meeting immediately following Holy Eucharist.  It is imperative that every voting member of the parish be present in order to have your voice and vote heard.  We will be voting on nominations for the Nominating Committee, Vestry, as well as our new parish by-laws.







– 1 November 2011, Feast of All Saints, 7 p.m., Christ the King Anglican Church.  We will join our brothers and sisters of Christ the King for Holy Eucharist in order to celebrate this very important feast day of the Church.  We will remember all those saints who have gone before us.  Please bring a dessert to share after the liturgy.





– 2 November 2011, All Souls Day, 12:00 p.m. (noon), Christ our Hope Anglican Church.  We will remember the names of all deceased family, friends, etc.,  of our parish family who rest in the hope of the resurrection.  Please be sure to write any names you would like remembered on the list provided at the back of the church.




– 13 November 2011, Remembrance Sunday, Christ our Hope Anglican Church.  We will honour all of our military veterans in the parish.  There will also be the traditional minute of silence observed, as well as the reading of “In Flanders Fields.”






– 19 November 2011, Ordination Eucharist, 4 p.m., Christ our Hope Anglican Church.  We will celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Orders as His Grace, Bishop Morse, ordains Deacon Chris Herman to the Sacred Order of Priests.  His Grace, Bishop Finke, will be the preacher.  Let’s all plan to be present to help him celebrate this very special day in his ministry.








– 20 November 2011, Christ the King Sunday, Christ our Hope Anglican Church.  His Grace, Bishop Morse, will be here to help us celebrate Christ the King Sunday with the Sacrament of Confirmation for several of our parish members.   This will be a very special day in the life of our confirmands as they experience the release of the fullness of the spiritual gifts God has given them in their lives as they take personal responsibility for their own life of faith and discipleship to our Lord Jesus Christ.  We will pray that each confirmand be willing to allow their spiritual gifts to be fully used for the edification of the whole Body of Christ.

“Please continue to pray for Keith. He is still in CVICU and is still having quite a bit of pain. He is having trouble with his oxygen levels. Please pray that he will have less pain, less tubes and great oxygen levels when I get there tomorrow.”

While the surgery was successful and we are thankful, please continue to pray for Mr. Carter as he recovers from such an intensive procedure.  Thank you.

Brothers and Sisters of Christ our Hope:
As we prepare for our first Annual Parish Meeting Sunday, 6 November 2011, the Vestry and I ask that you take the time to review the new by-laws you will be asked to vote on.  The Vestry has laboured over these by-laws in order to ensure they are in accord with the Constitution and Canons of the Reformed Episcopal Church as well as the Diocese of the Central States, as well as to serve a vibrant and growing parish.  We ask that you review them so that we may be ready to act on any questions/discussion you may have before we make our vote.  I appreciate your attention to this important detail.
Blessings to you in Jesus!
Fr. Greg
Fr. Gregory Mashburn, OFM
Christ our Hope Anglican Church
