Rendezvous/ Audacious Hope Youth Lunch

Please join us for the youth Pizza lunch on Sunday July 21st after church. We will be celebrating the week we had together at St. Catherine’s and planning future activities for Parkdale Youth 2024-2025. Youth who are 13 + are welcome to join. Please let Huda know so we’ll have enough Pizza for everyone.


We welcome those who have been inquiring about formally becoming a member of Parkdale United Church. Since we are in the vacation summer months, we will be offering membership preparation after Labour Day in September. We will plan for the reception of New Members during worship on September 22, 2024.

If you have any questions feel free to contact  Rev. Dr. Bailey –

Are You Willing to Provide Rides to and from Church?

As a first step in matching people who might like a ride to church with people who are willing to provide such rides, your Pastoral Care team is wondering if you would be willing to provide transportation to someone or some people – to and from church on Sunday mornings.  If you are willing to do this, please let Bev Buckingham know at or call the office 613-728-8656.  Even if you are only available occasionally, please let us know that as well.

 Thank you for your consideration of this request.

Question 44: What does Jesus ministry teach us about God?

Here are some clues: Mt 4:23, Acts 10:38, Mt 9:11, Lk 23:34.

See also: Mt 8:13; Mk 7:31-37; Lk 5:17, 9:2; Jn 5:15; Mt 15:32-39; Mk 8:1-10; Jn 6:1-14; Lk 19:1 10.

Question 44 answer: In his ministry of healing the sick, feeding the hungry, freeing people from bondage to demons and proclaiming the reign of God, Jesus revealed a loving God who is concerned with all of life. In sharing meals with outsiders, showing mercy to sinners and even forgiving those who nailed him to the cross, Jesus revealed a God who embraces all and whose salvation extends to the ends of the earth.

Question 45: Why does the Apostles’ Creed emphasize that Jesus “suffered under Pontius Pilate?”

The answer will be in our next Sunday’s bulletin.

Here are some clues: Mt 27:26, Gal 3:13, 2 Cor 5:21, Lk 18:32-33.

See also: Mk 15:15; Lk 23:24-25; Jn 19:16.
