Algoma Deanery Week of Nov.25

Good day!

Thursday, November 28th is the White Elephant at Holy Trinity, SSM (352 Northern Ave.) 10am-12:30pm.

Friday, November 29th is the St. Andrew’s Day service at the Cathedral (160 Brock St.) 11am followed by a reception (which is at the Cathedral as well).  Why do the Anglican Church Women always have a service together on St. Andrew’s Day, you ask?  This is the same day that, in 1976, the Anglican Church of Canada ordained six women priests from four dioceses.

Saturday, November 30th is the presentation by the Churchmouse Players at the Cathedral; 1-3pm. They will be performing two scenes: Christmas in Avonlea and With Their Wings in Full Glory.

For Your Devotions:

Saturday, November 30th is the Holy Day of St. Andrew the Apostle.  We don’t know much about Andrew except that he was a fisherman by trade and the brother of Peter. Most importantly, we know that when Jesus called him, Andrew followed. He is known, in the Orthodox tradition, as the “First-Called”. Andrew became a part of the story of Jesus – the very same story of which we are now a part. He is the patron saint of Scotland (also of Russia) and legend has it he was crucified in the shape of an “X”.  In icons, Andrew is pictured standing with an x-shaped cross – like the “X” on the Scottish flag. Apparently, Andrew’s head has done more traveling than the rest of him. For more information: and p.358 here

Have a great week!
