A Letter to the Parish Regarding our New Office

9 July 2006 The Fifth Sunday after Pentecost My dear friends in Christ, "Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find." - Matthew 7:7 It is with much happiness that I write to tell you all of an exciting new development in our life as a Parish. This past week I sought out and found a space for our Parish to use as an office. After hearing from some of you a desire to create such a space, both in my visits to your homes and in committee conversations, I decided to do some digging to see what might be available to us in our communities.

Office Hours

Now that I have been able to sort out things I am ready to publish my hours in our new office at the Buchanan Memorial Hosptial. I will be in the office each: Wednesday 9am-12noon Saturday 9am- 12noon and Other times by appointment We will see how these go and if I need to add more time or another day I will publish it here. If you would like to contact me during these times please feel free to call me at 336-2619. As I am sharing this office the voice mail will only be for the Social Worker if you want to leave me a message when I am not in the office please call the Rectory at 336-2440 or email me at sta.stj@ns.sympatico.ca I am looking forward to meeting with folk in the office and being more of a presence to the Hospital patients and staff. Please feel free to drop by just to say, "Hi!"

A New Office!

After a lovely visit with the Facility Manager at the Buchanan Memorial Hospital I now have a new home for my office. I will soon be located at the Buchanan Memorial Hospital in Room #1609. I will be sharing the room with the local social worker. When the two of us figure things out a little bit more I will post my new office hours. This is an exciting new development in our parish life and I am looking forward to taking up residence in my new digs.
