A Word from our Priest-in-Charge
As I sit to write this letter for our Anniversary Newsletter, Pentecost is upon us.
That wonderful time when everyone received the power of the Holy Spirit, a time when people spoke in his own mother tongue - was
understood by all.
It has been a busy time at Saint Stephen's since Easter. Our Eastertide Study is underway.
We have had visits from Chief Top Leaf, a Youth Ambassador, and George Greene from Saint Michael's Mission.
Every visit by a guest speaker was followed by a luncheon.
Soon, we will be celebrating our church's Anniversary service. On June 9th, at 11 a.m., we will
be marking the 182nd anniversary of our church building and the 191st anniversary of the
Parish of Saint Stephen's in Lachine. Our Guest Preacher will be The Venerable Michael Johnson,
Archdeacon of the Saint Lawrence Archdeaconry, which encompasses the Deanery of Ste-Anne and the Deanery
of Pointe-Claire, of which Saint Stephen's is a part.
Please plan to be with us that morning for a joyous celebration;
a time to worship in old Saint Stephen's and re-connect with many old friends.
Blessings and love,
