40 Acts - a Lenten generosity campaign
Visit 40acts.org.uk to participate
Award-winning Lent generosity campaign launches on Ash Wednesday, February 18. Say thank you, create a generosity toolbox, share a skill and always talk to strangers. These are just a few of the forty acts of generosity which will feature in 40 acts.
During the forty days of Lent, participants are invited to take part in 40 activities that challenge them to do Lent generously in 2015.
Lent marks a pivotal point in the history of the church, when we remember how Jesus prepared to give himself up as a sacrifice for all humanity. Traditionally we mark Lent by giving something up, but as an alternative Christians can awaken to a new idea: that we can reflect something of God's incredible generosity on the cross by creating a daily habit of generosity throughout Lent.
Individual participants can sign up to 40 acts via 40acts.org.uk and will receive daily 40acts challenges via email from February 18 to April 4. Challenges will also be posted on the 40 acts website, and social media sites on a daily basis.
Our Sunday School program has been challenged to complete 40acts of kindness during Lent.
We will be tracking our progress as a group in Cronyn Hall and individually with family-friendly
at-home sheets. Please help us all in taking on this rewarding challenge as a
community here at St. Paul’s Cathedral.

Soup & Sandwich Dinner 2015
|SAVE THE DATE - SOUP & SANDWICH DINNER
May 11, 2015
COME TO THE TABLE!
Save the Date for St. Paul’s Social Services seventh annual Soup and Sandwich fundraising dinner and silent auction. Hosted for its seventh year by The London Club, this event brings many supporters of our programs together to
“break bread”, have fun and learn something new in the process!
Staff and volunteers at St. Paul’s Social Services have been very busy over the past eighteen months, developing and implementing our strategic plan. While still maintaining support to those in need through our food bank, hot lunch program and Christmas Share, we have made changes to enrich the nutritional quality of food offered and enhance opportunities to build community. We have also implemented some entirely new programming such as Food Skills and a Community Garden. Our programs at St. Paul’s Social Services are an integral and important part of a network of basic needs programs in the London and area community.
Our Guest Speaker at this year’s Soup & Sandwich event is Jennifer Kirkham, a woman extraordinaire! Jennifer works with the London Poverty Research at King’s University College Centre. This relatively new Centre collects local data and other information to enable our community to reach a deeper understanding of poverty in London. Also, as President and CEO of her own company: Mischevious Cat Productions Inc., Jennifer has provided strategy and management consulting to non-profit, private and government sectors since 2009. Prior to owning her own company, Jennifer worked for the City of London for 16 years, managing a broad portfolio of programs including Ontario Works, child care services, homelessness and social policy research. Jennifer will share her extensive knowledge, passion and insights about poverty in London and how our work at St. Paul’s Social Services can continue to grow and respond to these needs in the best possible ways.
Please join us for a warm, fun and informative evening. And you may just take home a unique and interesting gift from our always changing and intriguing silent auction.
New this year! We are thrilled to feature one special LIVE AUCTION item: an oil-on-canvas painting generously donated by the acclaimed London artist, Kevin Bice. For details and a colour image of this painting, visit www.dailybreadlondon.ca.
Title: “Work in Progress”
Sizes: unframed - 18" x 36" framed - 24" x 43"
Kevin Bice writes: The work was painted from a sketch I did in 2011 while on a painting trip to Newfoundland. The setting of the work is Change Islands, near Twillingate in the northeast part of Newfoundland. The boat is called a "bully boat" and, according to its owner, is one of only two still existing. Pete Porter has had it hauled up on the rocks and has been restoring it slowly over the years. Pete is a local fisherman and also runs a small local museum of artifacts he has collected over the course of his life.
