Music Program gets generous boost

Lindy Mackey

St. Paul’s Anglican Church has received a very generous donation from Lindy Mackey of Mackey Funeral Home towards the music program for our 180th Anniversary. The donation is so generous that it will help us fund other music guests into 2017. From Lindy Mackey

“We are pleased to support the presence of music in this 180th anniversary celebration. Music is a common language we all enjoy….it is uplifting…it influences the heart and soul of each who feel it. It is a gift for all to participate in. Congratulations on 180 years.”

Please join us in thanking Lindy for this wonderful gesture.

A Thank You

Thank you!  You have overwhelmed me with the many gifts you showered on me at the farewell celebration – the Stratford gift certificate, the ‘purse’ and the beautiful Inuit carving left me speechless as you had already given me the gift of sharing ministry together in the wonderful Trent-Durham part of God’s vineyard.  Your creativity and faithfulness – and hard working Spirit were a gift to me as your Area Bishop.  I will hold you all in my heart and my prayers as we continue to serve God!

Many blessings to all, + Linda
