The Season of Lent - Spirituality in Action

Lenten Cross

Lent is traditionally a time of soulfulness, spirituality, self-discipline, and an inward journey. Perhaps making some time to find silence, give back, unplug from technology, putting more time into what you truly value. As well, instead of the usual “giving up”, why not consider doing something for someone?

Week 1: March 10 - 16: The Hands of Love
Send an email, a card, write a note to a friend or someone not related to you, near or far, to reconnect, keep in touch, and say something of appreciation or care.

Week 2 – March 17 - 23: The Voice of Love
Call two or three people for a chat just to say “hello, how are you, thank you.” Contact people you have meant to call, but just haven’t.

Week 3 – March 23 – 30: The Deed of Love
Remember someone who means a lot to you with a small gift or token of appreciation for your friendship, or a family member who could really use some help – a plant, a pie, cookies, a casserole, a gift card?

Week 4 – March 31 – April 6: The Feet of Love
Visit someone who is shut-in, lonely, or a missing church member. Nothing can take the place of the personal touch of visiting with someone.

Week 5 – April 7 - 13: The Heart of Love
Make a list of at least 10 people for whom you will pray daily. Include friends and strangers, and those you don’t particularly like. Forgive them if they have wronged you, and forgive yourself, too.


Coins for a Cause!

An Inner City Pastoral Ministry Project


During Lent, we invite you to find a jar, decorate it (if you wish), and collect your coins! Money collected until Palm Sunday April 14 will be donated to the inner City Pastoral Ministry to purchase food/coffee gift cards to clients in need.

Thank you for reaching out to this important street ministry – a ministry of presence.

McDougall is a Breastfeeding Friendly Church

McDougall United Church bBreastfeeding logoecame Edmonton’s first official Breastfeeding Friendly church in 2013. In keeping with being an inclusive and welcoming church, mothers will not be asked to move or cover while breastfeeding. They are welcome to breastfeed anytime, anywhere at McDougall.

Business and public places in Edmonton who have adopted the Edmonton Capital Region Breastfeeding Friendly Policy for Businesses and Public Places are eligible to become official Breastfeeding Friendly Community Partners. Community Partners train their staff and volunteers to display a welcoming attitude towards breastfeeding mothers and children, not ask them to cover up or relocate, and to offer appropriate private facilities for women who ask. Training also helps staff handle other patron complaints about breastfeeding.

Community Partners display the International Breastfeeding Symbol. This lets Edmonton’s breastfeeding families know the facility is a safe and friendly space.
