A big THANK YOU to those who volunteered and to all of you who came out to our first Heavenly Eats Food Truck Friday here at St Teresa's on May 17th! Finally some nice weather arrived and that brought in the crowds of people who enjoyed some good eats from the trucks. Ish and chips were totally amazed at the turnout that they ran out of fish and chips not realizing the good Catholic friday tradition would be so popular! Every Friday you can find the trucks at a local church. Be sure to follow Heavenly Eats on Facebook for the schedule. A copy can also be found in the rack by the coat room.


A 140 Voice Community Choir presented HANDEL’S MESSIAH on Friday, April 12th and Saturday, April 13th at Woodside Church and Sunday, April 14th at Floradale Mennonite Church. What an amazing performance. Here is just a small sample of how well they sang together – you can feel the energy and the Spirit is truly present.
