Our thoughts are with Helen Whetter and Richard Wiebe.

As they say goodbye to their mothers who recently passed. Please keep them in your prayers.

Helen’s mom was 107 and the service will be on Thursday 18th, 1:30 pm, at Trinity United Church in Fort Richmond.

Richard’s mom was 99 and had asked for a quiet family service.

May care and love of those around you provide comfort and peace.

The day beforee the season of Lent is celebrated by Christian communities
around the world in different ways.   In some places it is called “Shrove
Tuesday”.  Shrove translates to “confess”- a time to get right with God.
Across much of the English speaking world it is a time to cook pancakes and
have fun.   In French speaking cultures is referred to a “Mardi Gras” or Fat
Tuesday.  For some, pancake Tuesday was a way of using up rich foods such as butter, sugar and eggs before Lent.
