November at St. Bede's

Welcome to November 2018 here at St. Bede's. It is very much a time of rememberance.

At 10.00 am on Thursday 1st November, you are welcome to join the Busy Day Craft Group
to make tea-light holders.

All Souls Day is Friday November 2nd, and the Church will be open for prayer, reflection
and candle lighting from 9.00 am to 3.00 pm.

All Saints will be marked on Sunday November 4th with loved ones remembered by name as we reflect on Saints being ordinary people who allow God's light to shine through.

Rememberance Day, November 11, falls on a Sunday this year.
At 4.00 pm on 11 November Kids Church will also be on.

Saturday November 18th is the Port Adelaide Twilight Christmas Parade. St. Bede's will be part of this Community Event with a "Christmas Tree float. People are welcome to wallk along with the float, or to cheer us on in the crowd.

On Sunday November 18, at 2.00 pm, a Service of Thanksgiving for the centenary of the end of World War I. This will be based on the Service used by Churches throughout South Australia on Sunday November 17 1918, at which the proclamation of peace was heard. 
Afternoon Tea will follow in the hall.

Sunday November 25th marks the end of church year by celebrating Christ as our King, Lord of all creation, and we will be participating with a tree in the Semaphore Street Fair. [The tree, with the decorations made that day, will be blessed at the end of the Street Fair.]

Our Stain Glass Window of the Month is the St. George Window found next to the Honour Board, in recognition of the centenary of the end of World War I.

The Hymn of the Month is Abide With Me, as we reflect on, and give thanks for, the lives of loved ones who are no longer with us.

May this November be a time of remembrance and thankfulness of those who have and continue to inspire us by shining God's light into our world.

Ruth,
Parish Priest
