Welcome to St John’s Anglican Church
Lunenburg, Nova Scotia

----------------------------------------------------------------

St. John’s, Lunenburg has been a place of welcome and worship since 1753. St. John’s not only has a rich history in the Anglican tradition, we also have a Vision for what God is calling the parish to be and do in the 21st Century. The Parish is a community of caring people who gather to worship and praise God in Common Prayer. We seek to look beyond the walls of the church and make a difference for good in the community and world. The parish provides a number of Christian education activities for children and adults.

We invite you to tour our website and discover some of the richness of our parish. If you are a parishioner, we hope that you will find the information you are seeking here on the website. If you are planning to visit St. John’s, we hope that the website will assist you in discovering St. John’s Church, Lunenburg, NS

Update On Michael's Health

GWD5060Version2

Dear Parishioners,

Since our last update a couple of weeks ago there has been little change in Father Michael's status. With both the targeted radiation and chemo treatment behind him, the doctors will assess the progress and success of this treatment sometime in August.

In the meantime, Michael continues to fight through deep fatigue and physical issues of reduced mobility and unsteadiness when standing or trying to move around. Holly is blessed to have her sister Terry with her through the last two weeks to help with these challenges and is looking into professional home care assistance and mechanical devices and equipment that will help with these challenges in the weeks ahead.

We continue to work with Holly in areas where the Parish can be of real assistance and will communicate any additional opportunities as they arise.

For the moment, meals are a huge help particularly once her sister Terry leaves at the end of this week. Again, please bring in serving sized portions to the Parish Hall and we will organize to have them delivered to their home.

At this point, as was mentioned, the planned medical treatment has been completed and Father Michael is now in God's hands, where our prayers and thoughts can be our strongest method of support.

Because there are a number of parishioners who do not have access to e-mail, please share this news with others who may not have received this update.

Blessings
Your Wardens
