ST. JOHN’S – Garnish is a fishing town located in Fortune Bay, Newfoundland. Lobster is the largest species fished in the area. Each day, nearly 70 people leave the harbour to haul in their pots and return at the end of day. This year has been challenging with persistent winds and swell. The ACW at St. Giles Anglican Church decided to show its concern for their safety by packing treat bags of bottled water, muffins, soft molasses cookies and a prayer for their safety on the water. They handed out the bags on the wharf as the boats returned. “It was a lovely day, we felt blessed to share God’s love with these hard-working men and women, and it was greatly appreciated,” said an ACW member.
