 lAST lENTEN STUDY CROP  ——————————————————————————————————————————–

GOOD FOOD BOX DAY is March 23rd.

 EARTH HOUR – Saturday March 24th. Due to conflicting events EcoWHam will not be holding our annual Earth Hour Service in Dundas.  But we have been invited to attend Eco-Locke’s event at St. Joseph’s Parish Hall, 260 Herkimer @ Locke Street.  7 p.m.  Their topic is “Just Food”.  OR celebrate Earth Hour at home with your family – turn off the lights between 8 -9 p.m. – thus saving gas too – and take the time to acknowledge the Earth.

MAUNDY THURSDAY SEDER DINNER – March 29th at 6pm. Maundy Thursday Supper. This year, we would like to include the Seder dishes as well as other dishes. There is a list on a table in the Narthex where we hope some of you will sign up. There are recipes available for you to take, or you can look up other variations on the Internet.

SEND A CHILD TO CAMP LENTEN CHALLENGE-the camp team encourages everyone to give up a coffee or cookie each week during lent and donate a looney to the camp fund.  The stories of these children’s experiences are heart warming.  We can do it!

GIVE IT UP FOR THE EARTH FOR LENT – the little tree in the Narthex has some green leaves on it – will there be more before Easter?  Not too late to think about an environmental practice that you could undertake this Lent.  Check the poster for ideas that can make a difference to our planet and write your idea on a green leaf.   Please ask if you have questions.
