St. Martin’s offers classes and formation opportunities for all ages to allow us to explore our faith more deeply and grow more fully into the image of Christ. The parishes of St. Martin’s, Good Shepherd and St. Laurence often offer education and formation for adults together.

Fall Parish Book Read
The congregation has voted and the book garnering the most interest was…
Liturgy of the Ordinary by Tish Harrison Wilson! Everyone is invited to read this book and then join us for a conversation about it on November 18th, 7:00 pm, at the Seanachie Pub (5909 Signal Hill Centre).
The book is most easily ordered through the Anglican Church’s partner Parasource: https://www.parasource.com/catalog/category/view/s/anglican-church-of-canada/id/802/. It is also available through amazon.ca.
In the overlooked moments and routines of our day, we can become aware of God’s presence in surprising ways. How do we embrace the sacred in the ordinary and the ordinary in the sacred? Framed around one ordinary day, this book explores daily life through the lens of liturgy, small practices, and habits that form us. Each chapter looks at something-making the bed, brushing her teeth, losing her keys-that the author does every day. Drawing from the diversity of her life as a campus minister, Anglican priest, friend, wife, and mother, Tish Harrison Warren opens up a practical theology of the everyday. Each activity is related to a spiritual practice as well as an aspect of our Sunday worship. Come and discover the holiness of your every day.
Sunday School: During the school year we offer Sunday School at the 10:00 a.m. worship service. Every other Sunday (or so) our worship opens with a Children’s Talk, after which the children go to their classes. This year, we are using the “Whirl” curriculum. This is a scripture-based, ecumenical resource designed to help children explore their faith, learn the Bible, and discover core Christian practices such as prayer and service. Our leaders offer a fun, engaging and open atmosphere, including arts & crafts and drama. Children rejoin their families for Holy Communion. On the second Sunday of the month, our children join the clergy at the altar to help lead the Eucharistic Prayer–our Second Sunday Helpers.

Youth & Parents: 2019-2020 – The November Schedule is here!
I know November is a boring month before December BUT did you know CHRISTMAS is in just 55 days? I’m just as excited as you are!
Remember to follow up with your weekly goals before the end of the year!
Please also remember and give in account to those who have passed and gave their life to protect our Canadian roots on November 11th for Remembrance day!
IMPORTANT: Parents, may you please pass the email & calendar on to your son or daughter and inform them to join.
**END OF THE YEAR REWARD**
There are quotes and goals for the week as I would encourage youth to step out and walk in light of the world! Parents are welcome to join their child completing these weekly goals. If your child willingly completes a minimum of 8 or more of these goals before 2020, there will be a reward at the end of the 2019 year. Make sure you mark a star in complete honesty on the week it was completed and send them to me at the end of the year.
If there are any questions, comments or suggestions please don’t hesitate to ask or if anyone would like more details about dates! If transportation is a need for a youth that wants to attend an event, let Natasha or I know.
May God Bless everyone of you!
