I can’t believe it, I WON … says Sr. Ruth!!!!!!

It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Pictured is Sister Ruth Penny, after she won at Wii Bowling, a game played using the computer. Once a month, at Providence Mother House a Wii Bowling tournament takes place. Under the expert tutelage of Christine, one of our Activity organizers, six of us gather for a couple of hours of bowling. Amidst cheers and moans, laughter and applause each one tries her best to knock down all the pins to achieve a strike or at least a spare for her efforts. A specially designed trophy is presented to the winning team along with “Tuck Bucks” worth $1.00 at the in-house Tuck Shop. Who says we seniors can’t have fun?

Are you planning to give up something for Lent?

Citizens for Public Justice (CPJ) has launched a campaign that is asking us to "Give it up for the Earth!" There are postcards to send to the Minister of the Environment, where we check off what we are pledging to give up for Lent that will lower our carbon footprint (driving less & taking greener modes of transport, eating a non-meat meal once a week or more, or a blank 'other' category where you can write in your personal pledge) and urging the Canadian Government to follow this example and take action to reduce our carbon footprint at a national level. Cards can be sent anytime during Lent. This is a great way for us to fulfill the promises we made in our Corporate Stance pledge on Climate Action. You can request a postcard from the JPIC office, or visit the CPJ website to order a bulk amount free of charge to distribute in your house, your parish and other places.

Trinity Institute 2017

Water Justice – March 22-24, 2017. Every year Trinity Wall Street Episcopal Church in NYC hosts a conference with a theme of national and global interest. This year's theme is about water justice and includes several well-known speakers engaged in this field, one of whom is Maude Barlow. Many churches and other institutions host the event locally. In Ottawa St. Matthew's Anglican Church on Bank Street is hosting it. For more information about the schedule and host sites so far see https://www.trinitywallstreet.org/trinity-institute/2017/home. There are not many Canadian host sites and there is information on the website on how to set one up in your local area if any interest. I participated in one Institute previously and both the input and discussions with the local group gathered were very good.
