Email Etiquette Policy  In these ‘days of email’ we must be care­ful how we use this meth­od of communication.

The fol­low­ing rules must be observed in this com­munity to avoid dis­turb­ing and upset­ting each other:

  • We must NOT add any­one to an email­ing list without their pri­or consent.
  • If we have done this in the past, then either (1) ask that per­son if they want to remain on the email­ing list, or (2) remove any such per­son from your mail­ing list.
  • If you are receiv­ing unwanted emails from any­one in this par­ish com­munity then let them or me know and ask for your name to be removed from that list.

This does not apply to par­ish emails regard­ing attend­ance.

Thanks for your cooperation.


 Let’s Start Think­ing – From Fr. Jeff.  2020 was in some ways a year in which the aim was to “get through and make the best of it.”  2021 brings with it the hope of a vac­cine and the chance to re-set our course for­ward.  I am very inter­ested in hear­ing the ideas of ALL parish­ion­ers as to what we need to do, change, do more of, do less of, add to our activ­it­ies.  It is best to put these ideas on paper rather than in a con­ver­sa­tion.  There will be a more form­al pro­cess later in the year, but let’s start think­ing now. Please email Fr Jeff on


Art in the Hall:  This month’s piece is Sun­flowers by Vin­cent Van Gogh,1889.  The Par­ish Coun­cil has now endorsed the idea of allow­ing parish­ion­ers to have art works hung in the Hall on a tem­por­ary basis.  Please note that no respons­ib­il­ity is taken for the secur­ity or pro­tec­tion from dam­age or theft of any art­work on loan.  A form waiv­ing any claim by a lender/donor must be signed before any art­work is accep­ted.  Pref­er­ence is for art with a recog­nis­able Anglic­an content.


Lea MacNeil has jam to sell and vari­ous sauces; please email her if you would like to give her an order.  You may, of course, ask her what type of jam and/or pre­serve or sauces she has on hand.  Don­ald, her hus­band can deliv­er your spe­cif­ic order to the Opshop where you are able to pay for it.


Food for our worms – Food scraps (no dairy, cit­rus or meat) can be left in the buck­et provided.  This is part of our Par­ish envir­on­ment­al initiative.
