Summer snaps

Our diocese can be a busy place over the summer. Here are a few of our favourite snapshots submitted over the season.

Picnic Fun

A limbo contest highlighted the annual picnic at The Church of Our Saviour The Redeemer Stoney Creek in July. The day began with an outdoor church service, and continued with food, a fishing contest, hayride, water balloon toss, hula hoop contest, golf ball relay and more. Photo: Bev Groombridge

Golf day

SNAP Golfing st J Ancaster
Over 108 golfers participated in the 15th annual golf day and dinner at St. John’s Ancaster. With wide support from the community, the event brought together not just parishioners but local business leaders and supporters from across Ancaster, Dundas and Hamilton. Photo: Sara Garcia

Summer worship

st George St Catharines
St. George’s St. Catharines provides an awe inspiring back drop for outdoor worship. Advent Café, held weekly during the rest of the year, occurs monthly during the summer, in front of the church on Church Street across from the police station. Its summer menu included music (Infinitely More), prayer, story, good conversation and refreshments. Photo: Hollis Hiscock

Cooling off

Air conditioner St Cuthberts's may be better resolution
An industrial crane had to be used to lift and install a new roof air conditioner at St. Cuthbert’s Oakville in July. It replaced the unit which has not been operational since 2016. Considering the extremely hot weather this summer, the new air conditioner provided a cooling effect on all who came to or worked in the parish office. Photo: Lori Kennedy

Raising the flag
