Cathedral Council Meeting
There will be a meeting on Tuesday 20th December. Please pray that all decisions taken are God´s leading. One item being discussed will be the report from the VCF team (Vida Cristiana y Formación – Christian Life and Formation) to share the findings of their 2-year survey of all Anglican groups in the Diocese of Peru.
Thank you! to those who have helped with the Christmas Box project during the week, checking boxes, writing labels, packing boxes into bigger boxes,….. Some of the boxes for the Cuzco area have been sent, and others are ready for sending. Each child also receives an evangelistic colouring booklet “What is Christmas?”, and this year a donation of booklets from the Bible Society means that they are also receiving booklets of Bible stories, lessons on character, etc. Please pray for all those who will be receiving their boxes in the near future, that they will receive the box full of goodies with joy, but that even more importantly they will understand that the true gift given at Christmas is that of Jesus. There will be a trip to Abancay to deliver some of these boxes. This will be from 4th to 9th January. Please see Penny Marcés for details.
1.Bazaar: The latest total gain from the Bazaar, held on 19th November, is almost S/.20,000. There are still jars of mincemeat, Christmas and chutney available; please ask Robin Emigh if you would like to buy one.
2. Search for a new Rector: The Selection Committee, which had received 2 applications, decided to extend the deadline for applications until 28th Feb 2017. Louise, the website administrator, has seen that entries to the “search for a new rector” link on the website have increased significantly over the last month. Please continue to pray for our new Rector, and for the process.
Can I help in the Cathedral in any way?
If you would like to help in any way in the Cathedral, as a sidesperson, reader, mending books, singing in the music group, or any way we haven´t even thought of yet, please see Martha Rivera or Penny Marcés. Whatever gifts you have can be used in some way….
On Wednesdays there is a time of Advent Worship and Meditation, from 7.15 to 8.30 in the Rectory. As we prepare for the coming of Jesus, both at Christmas and His second coming, this meeting is an opportunity to reflect on different aspects of our relationship with God.
Please note: There will be NO 8am service or Adult Forum on Christmas Day 25th December. Everyone is warmly invited to the Christmas Family Service at 10am.
