From Elizabeth’s diary September to November 2017

St Francis of Assisi was born 4th October 1181 and famously chose the company of animals

to that of people. He was named Patron Saint of Ecology in 1979 by Pope John Paul II. A

month before his Patronal feast,

Creaton will be holding a “Pet Service” on September 10th at 3.00 pm, inviting well-behaved

pets to bring their owners to church.

Look out for Harvest Festival arrangements in each of our congregations this year.

Starting In October, there will be a five session course: What is the URC. This is an

interesting course that long-time members and exploring friends alike will find worth while. I

am offering to lead this in two venues – not necessarily Crick and Creaton - depending on

whichever congregation lets me know they’re willing to host.

o 0 o Illness, Hospitalisation and Pastoral Care. None of us wants to be unwell but when it happens it’s good to have the support and prayers of our Church Family. Please remember that Patient Confidentiality regulations in Hospitals mean that no longer can a hospital contact a church to inform us of someone who has been admitted. If you are going into hospital please let your Elder or Church Secretary know so that we can support you in whatever way is helpful. Secretaries and Elders can pass on requests for home communion visits for those unable to attend service..
