Anglican Church Women (ACW)
St. Anne’s Social Service Groups Report
Cards Needed: It has been my pleasure continuing the card ministry of Lillian Dunlop and many others for the women and men at Country Terrace Nursing Home in Komoka. Birthday wishes are delivered monthly and Christmas greetings will go to all residents in December. Your donations of cards are needed on an ongoing basis. Many of us receive packages of greeting cards in the mail from charitable organizations that we cannot use. These cards are most welcome. Cards may be left at the church library or office
Fall Bale: We will once again be collecting items of warm, washable, practical clothing for men, women and children during the month of October. Our fall donations will be sent to Kenora in north-western Ontario. A large bin will be located outside of the library in the Parish Hall for your donations. Please call Laurie H. if you have any questions or would like to have your items picked up.

Some Easter Reflections
The resurrection of Jesus changes the face of death for all His people. Death is no longer a prison, but a passage into God’s presence. Easter says you can put truth in a grave, but it won’t stay there.
-Clarence W. Hall
Our Lord has written the promise of resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in springtime.
Sometimes Prayers don't change situations, but they change our attitude towards situations and give us hope which changes our entire life
Lord, let me be a mirror made clean and bright by your forgiveness, and held up by your glory, that I may reflect your life and love to those for whom I pray.
-Archbishop George Appleton
