Mission to Seamen

To: Thunder Bay Churches and Friends of the Mission

The Mission to Seafarers would appreciate donations of warm, small to large size men’s clothing. Many of the sailors on ocean-going vessels come from warmer countries and find our fall weather rather cold. Donations can be put in the drop off box outside the Seafarers’ Centre or given to the Mission to Seafarer Rep at each Anglican parish.

If anyone is interested in volunteering, we are busy enough now to need help: people are needed to staff the Seafarers’ Centre and drive the van.

Donations for Christmas Gift Bags are needed that will be given to seafarers in December. Donations need to be at the Seafarers’ Centre by November 17. Suggested donations include mittens, gloves, writing paper, and wrapped candy.

For further information go to www.missiontoseafarers.ca/thunderbay or call (807) 344-8241.

One photo a day keeps insanity at bay 8 05 10Self-guided Walking Tour on the historic el Camino de Santiago Spain June 5 – 18, 2015
•Would you like to walk for 7 days in a row on a path travelled by Christian pilgrims for 1200 years?
•Would you like to have the satisfaction of walking 150 km?
•Would you like to enjoy the peace and quiet and/or companionship that comes from the Camino?
•Have you heard about this walk in northern Spain and have wanted to try it?
•We are organizing a 7 day walk of the Camino during the 2nd week of June 2015.
•Following a couple of free days in Madrid in order to get over jet lag, we will walk for 7 days and then enjoy 2 days in Santiago where the walk ends.
•You will not have to worry about carrying your luggage and finding a place to sleep for the night. All will be taken care of.
•This is an independent walk so you can truly experience the Camino.
•There will be no guide on the walk and we will meet every evening at our hotel. Of course, some people may choose to walk together.

The brochure for this walk, as well as the registration form, and insurance form, in case you would like to join us, is available on the Diocesan website! Archdeacon Deborah Kraft and her husband, Dr. Jouni Kraft, are organizing this incredible journey. Please email Deborah or Dorothy Piccinin if you have any questions. 9 people have already registered for the walk.
