Saint Andrew’s Presbyterian Church and the Multicultural Association of Fredericton celebrated World Refugee Day, Saturday, June 20, with a family Walk with Refugees.
Please join a family Walk with Refugees starting from the Saint Andrew’s Presbyterian Church lawn (512 Charlotte St.) at 1:30pm on World Refugee Day, Saturday, June 20. The 1-hour walk, organized in partnership with the Multicultural Association of Fredericton, will pass by houses built by Fredericton’s first wave of refugees, through the early cemetery and return to the church. Participants will learn how important refugees have been and how they continue to enrich our community. On return to Saint. Andrew’s church, we will share lemonade on the lawn. Rain date is Saturday, July 4th.

On June 7, 2015, we celebrated 190 years of a Presbyterian presence within the city of Fredericton.
The Rev. Jeff Murray, Moderator of the Atlantic Synod and Minister of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Sackville, N.B., was the guest preacher.
Dear members and friends of Saint Andrew’s congregation:
This year we celebrate the 190th anniversary of a Presbyterian presence within the city of Fredericton. June has been designated as “Anniversary Month” and we will have a special service of worship on June 7th at 11:00 AM. The Moderator of the Atlantic Synod, the Reverend Jeff Murray, has been invited to preach. A pot-luck lunch will follow.
The Session hopes you will plan to attend as together we celebrate our heritage. Consider inviting friends and family as we give thanks for the faith and dedication of those who have influenced our lives. Many attended Sunday School, Scouts, Guides, and other programs at Saint Andrew’s. Perhaps a wedding was a significant event.
“The Church is Christ together with his people.” These words from Living Faith remind us that the church is not a building but a people. The building is where the church worships. Let us continue to build a church without boundaries; a church that welcomes and includes all people; a church that proclaims the love of God as we see it in the life of Jesus the Christ.
Let us celebrate our history and heritage as together we plan and work for tomorrow.
Sincerely and on behalf of the Session,
