Diocesan Refugee Fund
Diocesan Council agreed in its March Meeting to sponsor five family members of Marleen Abbo, wife of Safaa Mousa, whom we sponsored in honour PWRDF50 in December 2011.  Marleen's family had to flee the Mosul area when ISIS took over the city and surrounding area.  Last August they fled to Turkey where they had friends.  The family members her father Saeed (retired) her brother Amjad, age 24, her sister-in-law Rawan, age 22, and their children Sarita, age 3 1/2, and Simon, age 2.  UNHCR has recognized them as genuine refugees.  The Diocese needs to raise approximately $ 20,000 in addition to the resources we have to support the family for one year. Parishioners may make a one-time donation through their home parishes (envelopes are on the back bookcase) for forwarding to Diocesan Refugee Fund or send their cheques directly to the Diocese of Qu'Appelle (Memo: Refugee Fund), c/o Anglican Diocese of Qu'Appelle, 1501 College Avenue, Regina, S4P 1B8.

THOUGHTS & SMILES:
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY
Life Lessons
You may have thought I didn't see,
Or that I hadn't heard,
Life lessons that you taught to me,
But I got every word.

Perhaps you thought I missed it all,
And that we'd grow apart,
But Dad, I picked up everything,
It's written on my heart.

Without you, Dad, I wouldn't be
The person I am today;
You built a strong foundation
No one can take away.

I've grown up with your values,
And I'm very glad I did;
So here's to you, dear father,
From your forever grateful kid.

Church News June 4

THOUGHTS & SMILES:
Sometimes you just need an angel
To stay by your side though the day,
Sometimes you just need an angel
To help you, and show you the way.
An angel to shield you and watch you,
To lend you endurance and grace
To stand by your side and guide you
When life seems a worrying place.
But courage!  For angels are with us,
Just waiting to love us and care.
Just trust and you’ll find when you need one,
An angel will always be there.   Margaret Ingall
