Excerpts from The Messenger
The Community Newsletter of St. Ansgar's Lutheran Church

Each month, except for a double-issue in December/January and another in July/August, a monthly newsletter called The Messenger is published and distributed to the members of the St. Ansgar's Community

Foreword, and a Note on Privacy

Although The Messenger always contains interesting and worthwhile material of a general and timeless nature, presenting it to the entire world poses special problems, as this newsletter also contains much material of private interest to the St. Ansgar's community: Regular bookkeeping information, monthly schedules for readers and ushers, and personal stories and anecdotes concerning members of the St. Ansgar's community. This restricted information cannot be shared. In the table below, the reader will find only excerpts from the Messenger: The pastor's monthly column and other articles of general interest. In some cases articles have been paraphrased so as to convey the core of the information without invading the privacy of the individuals involved. In our using for the most part only first names, we do not intend any disrespect.

If you feel you should be receiving the full Messenger (It can be sent by e-mail), then please contact the pastor at:

4020 rue Grand Boulevard, Montreal, Qc, H4B-2X5
