Wednesday, September 13 – Afternoon Circle – 1:30 pm
Simone Larouche from Holy Cross Church will give a brief talk about the Cursillo
Movement and her recent pilgrimage in Portugal. Cursillo is a movement of
renewal which began in the Roman Catholic Church in Spain in 1944, and has
spread to include other denominations. Cursillo is a Spanish word meaning
“little” (or short) course. Weekend studies concentrate on Christ and His
teachings. They aim to refresh the faith of participants, and through those
individuals make Christian community possible in all the places where people
live their lives. Everyone is welcome.
Sunday, September 17, 2:00 pm – E.H. Gospel Sound They’re coming back!!! …. and you don’t want to miss their fabulous
performance. Their music is inspiring and so is their history.
East Hawkesbury United Church is 100 years old. Its tiny congregation is only
eight members strong. However, size is not a deterrent, and the congregation
continues to worship and provide all services, from preaching to maintenance and
repairs, through the dedicated efforts of its volunteers.
From this tiny congregation, the E.H. Gospel Sound had its origin. They are a
group of family musicians, famous for their warmth and enthusiasm, who, in 1960,
began hosting hymn sings to enable the congregation to continue to renovate and
nurture their small rural church. In the spring of 2010, while planning special
summer evening programs, these family musicians decided to form the E.H Gospel
Sound. The Group is now very popular and in high demand throughout Eastern
Ontario. However, some things have remained constant … they continue to
volunteer their time and talent and all of the money raised at their concerts is
donated to support local community churches as well as their own East Hawkesbury
Mark your calendars and plan to join us on September 17 for a fabulous
performance. Experience their warmth and enthusiasm, enjoy their mix of new and
old gospel, Celtic, country and bluegrass music and help them support their deep
love and respect for their faith and tradition. We promise it will be an
experience you will not easily forget.
Tickets are available at the door or in advance through the Church Office at
(613) 733-0131. Adults $15.00 Children $3.00
