We Are Pleased To Announce

The new Rector of St. Peter’s is the Reverend Dr. Norbert Haukenfrers and he joins the church on September 15th. Currently he is Rector of St. David’s Anglican Church, Prince Albert, Saskatchewan where he has been since 2005. He is also an Archdeacon of the Diocese of Saskatchewan.
Norbert has Alberta links having been born in Edmonton and spending part of his life in central Alberta. Prior to becoming a priest he worked in construction and as a marine engineer.
In his ministry he emphasises following Jesus in his healing and reconciling work in the community; being faithful in the teaching, equipping and encouraging people to pursue a life of being fully alive in Christ Jesus; and nurturing and encouraging grace-restored relationships with Jesus Christ and each other. For the Reverend Norbert, the body of Christ is a place of offering healing, hope and help in the context of daily living. As the shepherd and equipper of the body he expects to encourage, mentor, assist and facilitate."

This All Age Service was inclusive meaning children stayed for the entire service and were encouraged to participate in all the fun activities.  Worship songs were geared to  participation with mouth/foot/hand actions. Rubbing our tummies, raising our hands and stomping our feet got us all ready for more.

Passover2

 

On Thursday March 29, we celebrated a Passover Meal as a church body. It was a huge success. We ate together, sang together and celebrated a traditional Passover meal. The traditional food was substituted with items that are easily obtained in this area of the world, but the importance of them was not lessened as a result. I was particularly touched to be able to serve communion to my table-mates and enjoy their company as we remembered Jesus last night with his disciple...

My dear, dear Family in Christ Jesus,

Adapted from Romans 1:1-7 

Timothy, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God— the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures regarding his Son, who as to his earthly life was a descendant of David, and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.
