Lenten Gifts -
Sunday 25 February, as we continue to observe Lent, we focus our attention on the children of Central Buganda. Sean Carlson, a truly inspiring speaker, will give us a message. Our gifts given during Lent provide schooling and a sense of belonging for needy children. Education gives children the opportunity to learn and to plan for their future. A scrumptious luncheon will be served following the 10:30 eucharist. Please plan to attend.
Delicious Dishes -
11 March - a spaghetti lunch in the parish hall after the 10.30 eucharist. Menu will be spaghetti with meat sauce, a bun, and home baking by Janice Van Vliet for dessert, and tea or coffee. Cost $12 per person, 12 and under free.
25 March - assorted quiches, salad, and bread, with home baking by Vera Rosolowich for dessert. Tea or coffee. $10 per person, 12 and under free.

The Realities of Dementia: Care Essentials
Thursday 22 March 7–8:30 pm
As a person's dementia progresses they may experience changes in their communication and behaviour. These changes may be triggered by factors in the person's health, changes in their environment, problems with cognition and communication, or being asked to do things that are not reflective of their current abilities. Learn more about these changes and care-giving approaches that focus on understanding how the person with dementia is trying to communicate with their words, gestures and behaviours.
