This year, Emmaus is hosting a World Vision Global 6K fun run (or walk). All funds raised will go towards Perla del Ulua community in Honduras, supported by Emmaus. If you are not able to run/walk, please consider contributing to someone else's fundraising target. Sign up now or make a donation at www.worldvision6k.ca/Emmaus.
On Sunday, April 29th Jill and Jack will be presenting a sale of crafts in the hall after the service. Most of these crafts are NEW ones that Jill brought back from her recent time in Uganda. Come and check them out!! (It’s never too early to shop for Christmas…!) All the proceeds will go to help pay school fees for orphans, to give them a chance to succeed in life by getting an education.
Please join us for a fundraising auction for The Open Door. It will take place on Friday, April 20th at LE CAFÉ, Monument-National. The viewing will be from 5-7pm and the auction will be from 7-9pm. The auction will help The Open Door continue to provide assistance for the poorest of the poor.
"I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of glorious inheritance in his holy people..." Ephesians 1:18-19
This retreat is an invitation to discover and practice a simple contemplative prayer, based on the book "Simply Open" by Greg Paul.
Being totally open to God in prayer is an important key for deepening our spiritual journey. We can ask God to open up our senses, heart and mind in order to increase our awareness of his presence in our everyday life and of his work in the world.
As we prepare for Lent, may our prayers be transformative. -- Luce Amyot
In collaboration with the Isaiah 40 Foundation, Emmaus Anglican Church will be hosting a screening of the documentary Over 18, which offers a, "clear-eyed examination of modern pornography and its effects on kids, teens, [and] parents." The goal of the documentary is: "To educate parents about what their kids are being exposed to online and encourage them to talk with them about it."
Space is limited, so we are asking people to register online here. If we reach max capacity by Monday, Jan. 22, we will schedule another screening sometime after the 30th.
Please note: Cost is FREE!
