Looking back through files of old Anglican Life issues, I’ve come up with a few photos that you may enjoy seeing again. Happy Thanksgiving!

2013–Thanksgiving supper in Port Saunders
Monday October 14, 2013, was a beautiful sunny day in Port Saunders for Thanksgiving, and Thanksgiving always means an Annual Fall Fair with sale of baked goods and vegetables or bottled goods, along with something hot to eat like chilli with fresh bread rolls, sandwiches of every kind, and a nice lemon dessert with tea/coffee in the Anglican Church in Port Saunders. It was hosted by the St. John Divine Vestry. The most exciting part of the day was the cake walk that got the young and old in on the act, but it looked like the young won more cakes than the older people!
2016-Thanksgiving at The Ascension, Mount Pearl
Each October, our church is filled with the bounty of the season. This past fall, parishioners and friends gathered for fun, food and fellowship, enjoying a Jigs Dinner on October 11th and a card game on October 18th. The Youth of our Parish visited Ruby Manor to serve tea and share treats which they had made especially for the occasion, and they shared in a time of song and fellowship with the residents.
2018-Port Aux Basques Thanksgiving
The ACW Altar Guild of St. James’ Church in Port aux Basques decorated their church for Thanksgiving Sunday Service. Some of the ladies went to the country to cut boughs, dog wood berries, and other foliage to add to our beautiful arrangements.
St. Matthew’s Church, Rocky Harbour, held it’s annual Harvest Festival supper on Monday October 8th, 2018 with a Jiggs Dinner. There was also a bake sale, and sale of knitted goods, crafts, preserves, vegetables, and other items.
