Weekly Announcements for Sunday January 15, 2017

 

second sunday after epiphany – JANUARY 15, 2017

Sunday morning note: As a way to explore more flexible engagements with scripture on Sunday morning, we will be using only the Gospel reading during the season of Epiphany.  Sometimes we need to read broadly, sometimes we need to go deeper into one thing.  May we be alert as we delve into the teaching life of Jesus together

Welcome to St. Augustine’s.

Find out more about who we are in the pew brochure or online at www.staugustinesedmonton.com
