We strive to be an open and welcoming faith community for any who are looking for a new spiritual home and for those who appreciate the liturgy of the Anglican Church.

Help Our Group Raise Funds

By Using Gift Cards for Your Everyday Spending

More Information

Do you buy groceries, gas, household items, shop at department stores, do you eat in at restaurants, go to the movies or need gifts for holidays, birthday and special events?

 

FundScrip is a fundraising program that lets the Church of St. Jude (Wexford) raise much needed funds simply by purchasing gift cards to the stores you are already shopping at.

For example: you purchase a $100 grocery card and you will receive a $100 grocery card and a percentage of your purchase will be donated to the Church of St. Jude (Wexford).

 

We encourage you to invite your family members, friends, co-workers and neighbours to participate in FundScrip as well. After all, they probably buy groceries and gas just like you do.

 

How does this work?

1. Download/print form and fill it out with the quantity of cards for each retailer and sum up your order total (there are also printed paper forms available in the office if you do not have a printer at home).

 

2. Attach payment in cash or cheque (payable to: The Church of St. Jude (Wexford)) and drop off the filled form and payment at the secure mail box before Sunday October 2nd , 2022. OR  Email filled form to arbelaezml05@hotmail.com and send an e-transfer to The Church of St. Jude (Wexford) for your order total by Sunday October 2nd , 2022. Please state “FundScrip gift cards” in the comment section.

 

3. The gift cards will be ready for pick up on Sunday October 9th , 2022, just in time for Thanksgiving!

This is our first round of orders and it will need quite a quick turn around as we would like to have them ready for you to pick up on Sunday October 9th , 2022.

Our second round of orders will be for the Christmas season so do not despair if you cannot get an order in this time around, we will let you know in advance when the next round of orders can be issued!

 

Please do not hesitate to contact Lina Arbelaez if you have any questions.

Anuncios para el domingo 2 de octubre del 2022

El diecisieteavo domingo después de Pentecostés.

La Fase Verde de los protocolos Covid. Con las restricciones de capacidad levantadas para los servicios de adoración en persona y el rastreo de contactos ya no es necesario, hemos eliminado las barreras de distanciamiento físico dentro de la Iglesia; teniendo en cuenta a aquellos que pueden requerir distanciamiento físico cuando están en persona. 

La copa común ha sido reintroducida. Tenga en cuenta, si se siente incómodo, que no hay obligación de que nadie reciba el vino, si usted no lo desea; el sacramento es completo cuando se recibe solo el pan. Tocar la base del cáliz puede ser una opción en ese momento, si lo desea.

También sabemos que ya no es obligatorio usar una máscara cuando se asiste al culto en persona; sin embargo, aún alentamos a las personas a usar máscaras cuando están en interiores (dado que cuando una sola persona está leyendo o predicando, existe la posibilidad de quitarse la máscara). El uso de una máscara es una medida de protección comprobada y efectiva contra la transmisión de Covid.

En los domingos, la hora del café se lleva a cabo en la parte trasera de la iglesia después del servicio.

Ofrecemos la opción de servicios en línea para todos los servicios de adoración. Además de estar disponibles por Zoom y a través de nuestra página de Facebook, los servicios de adoración están siempre ligados a nuestra página web www.stjudewexford.ca.

Información de Zoom para la misa el domingo. La información necesaria para conectarse los domingos a través de Zoom es la siguiente: ID de reunión: 857 6600 0074, contraseña 449811. Comparta esto con aquellos que puedan necesitar usar este método para conectarse a nuestra misa.

Horas de oficina. La oficina parroquial está abierta de martes a viernes de 9:00 am a mediodía.

Ausencia del Padre Greg. El padre Greg tomará el resto de sus vacaciones a partir del 21 de septiembre y regresará el 5 de octubre; caminará los últimos 200 km del Camino de Santiago de Compostela en España. En caso de emergencias pastorales. Mientras el Padre Greg está fuera, en caso de cualquier emergencia pastoral, comuníquese con la oficina o con uno de los Vigilantes para estar en contacto con el Rev. Andrea Christensen, el sacerdote de guardia.

Si usted puede, estamos en la necesidad particular de Cereal, atún, café instantáneo, salsa para pasta y sopa de pollo. Apreciamos su generosidad.

Esta es una invitación abierta para unirse a un juego divertido y de mínimo esfuerzo que tendrá lugar en el sótano de St Jude todos los viernes por la mañana a las 9:45 a. m. Todos son bienvenidos. Les pedimos a los participantes que usen máscaras (para la protección de todos) y que traigan sus propios refrigerios para tomar un café.
