For the second year, St. Catherine's,
The major focus will be on the recycling of end-of-life electronic goods rather than having such items piling up in landfills and leaching harmful substances. The weekend will begin with the showing of the film "Manufactured Landscapes", a visual impact on the disposability of our times.
On Saturday, the congregation are invited to bring their end-of-life electronics to the church for sorting and delivery to two recycling depots that practise environmental stewardship. There will be encouragement to reduce the use of cars with a bike tune-up and, new this year, there will be a plant exchange and sale with two Master Gardeners in attendance who will answer your questions.
On Sunday Eucharist will be environmentally-themed with Sunday School involvement. After the service, there will be a variety of eco activities plus a 100 mile (160 km) lunch.
Throughout the weekend there will be a number of displays in the church hall from participants such as the BC Nature Trust, KAIROS, Suzuki Foundation, North Shore Recycling and so on. For more information see www.saint-catherines.org.
Deep Cove beginning Coffee House
A Deep Cove Coffee House is being developed at St. Clare-in-the-Cove. Local musical artists are being invited to participate at the Deep Cove Coffee House which will operate every second Friday of the month, begining April 11 at 7:30 pm
A number of local people plus church members are contributing to this new venture. "We are really eager to make contact with the wider community in a number of ways," says the Rev.
St. Clare's last month offered a "Community Philosophers' Café" focused on restorative justice. St. Clare invites community in.
