Bereaved Families of Ontario - Cornwall to close - Standard Freeholder

BFO could stay open for another year. But at this point, donations smaller than that would not be enough to cancel the plans to close.Even if the organization folds at the end of May, Roy said they are looking into trying to organize grief support group meetings, but it will be hard to fill the gap left by the organization.ahale@postmedia.comtwitter.com/alan_s_hale Let's block ads!

Regional appeal board deliberating Corner Brook city council's denial of Country Haven crematorium plans - The Telegram

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

The Western Star and the results of surveys sent to 150 households in the area immediately around the funeral home. There was also some discussion about whether the city correctly treated the crematorium as a discretionary use for the funeral home or if it should have been treated as an accessory use. Sharpe said, either way, the process would have resulted in city council voting according to their own consciences. Parsons told the board that a story published by The Western Star three days before council's second vote may have been a factor in swaying council's vote. In that story, a woman living near a crematorium in Stephenville, complained about the emissions coming from the facility. The owner of the Stephenville crematorium refuted what the woman was claiming. Likewise, Parsons contends the emissions from the controlled burning of a state-of-the-art crematorium is safer than a backyard barbecue. Parsons also told the board he was asked by the city to hold a public forum with his funeral home's neighbours just days before the vote took place. He said that was an impractical request, given such short notice and it would have had to be held on a weekend. Parsons does want to hold a public forum and will if he gets another chance to add the crematorium to his Country Road property. "They are good neighbours of mine and I would love to educate them about what takes place with a crematorium," Parsons said after Thursday's hearing. "I would have the right people and resources there to answer all their questions." Three residents who live near the funeral home attended the hearing, but none would do an interview after the appeal had been heard. Walters said the board will make its decision on the appeal within 21 days, but would try to make it as soon as possible. Parsons said the demand for cremation has grown significantly in the 19 years he has been in business. In fact, more than half the funerals he directs now involve cremation. The business currently has to cremate bodies in out-of-town locations and wants to offer their own service in-house. It has been suggested that the funeral home build its crematorium in an industrial park area away from residences. Parsons doesn't think that should be necessary. "I just don't think it's appropriate to bring families to a beautiful reposing room at a funeral home and then bring them to cold, sterile industrial park for the cremation," he said. Regardless of the board's decision, Parsons said Country Haven will be pursuing its own crematorium somewhere. "It's got to happen," he said. "The business is just crying out for it." If the issue does go back to council to revisit, he hopes the new council elected since his proposal was rejected will not base its decision on emotions and support staff's initial recommendation to approve it. This is not the only case before the appeal board involving a crematorium. The Town of Deer Lake approved a crematorium for Parsons Funeral Home last October and some residents have appealed that decision, saying it should not be located near homes, schools and other businesses. No date has been scheduled to hear the Deer Lake appeal. Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Polachic: St. George's Anglican parish - Saskatoon StarPhoenix

Saturday, March 02, 2019

Carr says. "It's another way we can service our Indigenous community."The last Sunday of each month, St. George's holds a community pot luck. There is also a monthly potluck for the LGBTQ community.And then there's the pie ministry. Women of the church bake, sell, or give away hundreds of pies each year. Some are served at the coffee house that takes place on Thursday mornings.The Hands For Peace group meets on Friday to knit shawls, mittens and hats, and pray. The knitted items are blessed in church and distributed to hospitals and people in need.Another ministry is the Clothing Loft which operates in partnership with Saskatoon Youth Resource Centre."St. Paul's United Church in Sutherland closed its used clothing store, but still collects clothing which we give out free," Carr says. "The young people from the resource centre come here once a week to keep the loft tidy and organized."St. George's has an active food ministry, providing hampers for families and emergency food for families by request. On Sundays, there is a food table near the entry where food donations are placed and received. Carr says the food is available to anyone in the community.On Tuesday evenings at 7 p.m., St. George's holds a unique service known as Celtic Circle. It is a service of contemplative prayer and Holy Communion by candlelight."We wanted a mid-week service that was different," says Peter Coolen, who claims Celtic roots of his own. "Not just for the people of St. George's, but for the whole city."Celtic Circle is an ecumenical sort of group that includes United church minister Rev. Rob Brown in its leadership.Coolen says people for whom Celtic spirituality is important come from many congregations and denominations."There are no readings from the Lexionary; the Gospel story is narrated. It's like Biblical storytelling."Readings are followed by segments of prayerful silence, three minutes following the Gospel narrative, three minutes following the Eucharist.Participants stand in a circle for the Eucharist; the bread and wine are passed from person to person. The Eucharistic prayer is adapted from the Iona Abbey Worship Book.Fifteen minutes of communal reflection on a suggested topic takes place over tea and coffee, then everyone returns to the service for a final prayer and dismissal taken from the New Zealand Prayer Book.There is no singing in the Celtic service. The only music is at the beginning or after dismissal."We try to make that Celtic," Coolen says, "…fiddle, harp, bagpipes, or recorded music.""We at St. George's don't have a big budget for programming," says Carr, "but we do have friendships in the community. We aim to welcome all. We believe the more welcoming we can be, the more people can learn to be followers of Jesus. We feel blessed and honoured to pray with people, to walk with them, and be a sanctuary in the city for them."St. George's Anglican Church is located at 624 Ave. I South.

Convoy evokes Canadian pride in North Bay - Vermilion Standard

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

Monday afternoon.Caron, of North Bay, was waiting in the parking lot at Motion Canada on Gormanville Road for almost 100 vehicles, from small cars to big rigs, to pull in on their journey from Alberta to Parliament Hill with a message for federal politicians. Alexandre Caron "This is about more than pipelines," Caron says. "This is about government. This is about all the provinces having different issues. It's about getting back the political process."The United We Roll Convoy for Canada, a caravan of transports, work vehicles and personal automobiles, left Red Deer, Alta., last Thursday bound for Ottawa and a protest on Parliament Hill Tuesday."The media and the government have divided the provinces," Caron says. "We want to fight for our freedoms and our rights. We want fair government.""We are watching Justin Trudeau slowly strip away every right we had," Sarah Zaldinger, of Timmins, said as about two dozen supporters waited for the convoy to arrive, sharing updates on when the parade would roll into town."He is stripping the future of my children and their children and their children," Zaldinger said. "They are being set up for failure. Their rights, their future, will all be destroyed if we don't stand up now."Although she was not part of the convoy to North Bay, Zaldinger was going to join it Tuesday morning for the rally in Ottawa as part of her own objective of "direct democracy."And direct democracy is possible, she said.Zaldinger pointed to a recent Amber Alert sent to cellphone users across the province ...
