“I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. For as in one body, we have many members....so we, who are many, are one body in Christ.” Romans 12: 1, 4-5
Thanks to your incredible generosity, in the last two years the Parish of the Valley’s annual Advent Appeal has raised more than $40,000 to support Anglican ministry through the individual congregations and chapels of our area parish. That same amazing generosity has now been transformed by God into ministry. Worship, outreach projects, home communion visits, Valley Bulletins, e-newsletters, Revelations, workshops, Bible studies, and so much more – all because you said “Yes!” to supporting God’s mission through the life and witness of your local church.
This year we have the opportunity to again say "Yes!" through the 2022 Parish of the Valley Advent Appeal. Click here to read the 2022 Parish Advent Appeal letter to learn more.
Members of St. John the Evangelist Eganville are invited to read the 2022 St John the Evangelist Eganville Celebration of Light Advent Appeal letter. Once again this year, 100% of Advent Appeal donations received by St. John's Eganville will support the wonderful work of Wide Smiles for All Through Education in Uganda, through the annual Advent Celebration of Light Evensong.
Members of Holy Trinity Pembroke, St George's South Alice, All Saints Petawawa, St Paul's Cobden, and St John's Eganville also have the option of switching regular envelope offerings to pre authorized remittances (PAR), or of increasing existing donations through PAR. PAR authorization forms can be downloaded by clicking here (scroll to the bottom of the page) or can be requested from your church treasurer or envelope secretery.
Thank you for the innumerable ways that you continue to offer your love and your support to the ministries of our Parish of the Valley. May God grant you a blessed Advent, a Merry Christmas, and peace, health, and much happiness in the coming New Year.
