Good News from Camp Huron! Announcing our 2023 Overnight Camp Season Earthrise is a very famous photo of a teeny tiny planet Earth, floating in vast, dark outer space, taken by astronauts as Apollo 8, orbited the Moon. Watch a short video here. Imagine what it was like to see Earth our island home from so very, very far away. What a marvellous sight! Can seeing our blue planet this way inspire us and call to us to love and care for God’s wondrous creation? Let’s find out as we see Earth from afar and serve Earth up close. Register online starting February 23, 2023, at 6 pm. www.camphuron.ca In the meantime, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org 519-434-6893 ext 217

A reminder from the Anglican Fellowship of Prayer (Huron). Appointments at Vestry R E M I N D E R As we all are busy in our Vestry preparations, I am sending this brief note to ask that all parishes include in their vestry proceedings, the appointment of a Parish Representative to the AFP. For some, this appointment is already a regular part of the vestry agenda and for others it has been some time since such an appointment to the AFP was made. It is through representatives that AFP is able to support the development of prayer groups, retreats, quiet days and prayer conferences in your parish and in our diocese. With support and training offered to AFP representatives in the form of literature on prayer, newsletters, and regularly connecting with others also involved in prayer in other parishes, prayer is encouraged in the life of the church, helping us all to develop in our life of prayer and in our relationship to God and to one another. The name and contact information for any appointed as AFP representatives may be entered on the year end documentation sent into the Church House, or it may be sent to Libi Clifford, AFP Executive member directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
