Our newly elected Bishop Todd Townshend visited Epiphany Sunday March 1st. The Bishop praised our congregation for the fine outreach we do for our local community. He also congratulated Rev Teresa for her 15 years of outstanding service at the Church of the Epiphany.
One of Bishop Townshend’s official duties was to bless and officially dedicate our new lectern given by Bob, Linda and Christine Aldington in memory of daughter/sister Lisa.
We had a great time on Valentine’s day this year. Laurraine Sigouin and the Enchante group entertained, and what a party it was!!!
Highlight of the Evening was Laurraine singing Steve H and Ron S new song Hearts and Roses.
The tea and paint afternoon was a great success resulting in a donation of $500 by London’s Civitan Club to Rotholme Women’s and Family Shelter. See Photos below.
The congregation was blessed today with a surprise Birthday party celebrating one of our longest serving members, Jim Whittington. The surprise was orchestrated by Jim’s wife Dianne who contracted Jeremy Smith to play a surprise concert. Privacy and ethical concerns prevent me from disclosing the age of our Birthday Boy. Suffice to say, he is a younger man than I.
The Orange Owls from a nearby daycare made their annual pilgrimage to the Manor and Highland Park Cenotaph. It was a heartwarming experience for the remembrance committee secretary and chairman to interact with these innocent, beautiful 2 and 3 year olds and their teacher Julie. Once again the Orange Owls have touched us by leaving some Remembrance Day art work now on display in the Church.
Well, the concert is over and it was great. Jeremy Smith not only sings like John Denver, he looks like John Denver. For all you John Denver fans out there not attending today, you missed a great show. Stay tuned though. We may have him back.
