"Everything but the Rectory"

Sunday, March 13 12:00 - 2:00 pm
Rectory clean-up day! 

You may have heard about the success story of Everything but the House.  It's where items that are no longer useful to a homeowner are offered for sale in a bid setting - people offer what they are willing to pay.  

Over the years, many donations to Calvary Church have ended up stored in the rectory attic, basement, and cupboards.  The vestry has decided that it is time to clean house in anticipation of our new rector, and that they should be offered first to parishioners before they are distributed for auction or for sale. M ore on that later ....

On  Sunday, March 13 (lunch provided) we are asking for support from the parish for these things - move all excess furniture to the first floor, give it a nice clean up, and polish silver.  Not glamorous, but it will help us inventory the items available.

Please consider offering your time and talent to this small project ... And please let Maris Bernard (email: know by  Friday March 11 if you can help so there's enough food! 

Any questions?  Email or call  (513.315.0399 cell) for more information!  

Thank you -
Maris Bernard (MacLachlan) and your vestry

A lmighty God, you alone can bring into order the unruly wills and affections of sinners: Grant your people grace to love what you command and desire what you promise; that, among the swift and varied changes of the world, our hearts may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

See you at Church!
