Back to Church Sunday is something we can do every week.

PLEASE NOTE: Vestry approved RENEW We would like to thank our parishoners who have supported thus far. By creating a Renew Trust we hope to provide a form of sustainability for the parish with contributions from estates, wills, and planned giving, etc...information was presented at Vestry. Flyers are available for anyone who may consider contributing to the RENEW fund of the parish. Our fund will be invested to defer future parish music costs.

Save your stamps, for the Canadian Bible Society. There is a box at the back of the church for them and thank you.

  • Shrove Tuesday, Pancake supper was earlier this year. We served 200 at this fun meal. Then Wednesday at 7:00pm will held the  Imposition of Ashes to mark the beginning of our Lent observance. At 2:00pm Wednesday Eucharists in Lent will have a study following each service, in the Parish hall. This year it is entitled 'Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John. All are welcome

  • Sunday School helpers are still needed. If you could help once a month or even occasionally it would be greatly appreciated. We need coverage for our current teachers to have a Sunday off

  • tower bellOur church bell was found to have a problem with the hammer that with the cold weather of winter could easily crack this over century old treasure. Thanks to the generous donation from Don & Hazel the clapper was removed and sent to the original crafting company in Pennsylviania for a newly molded clapper. It is our hope that it will be installed in time to ring in Easter. We plan to rededicate the bell with an ancient tradition of ringing it once for every year since the resurrection of Christ. Anyone wishing to help with the ringing please give your name to the Rector.

  • COFFEE TIME follows the 10:30 service. Please sign up to help with this important time of Christian Fellowship.

  • Sad times for the parish in the first weeks of the new year, as God has taken home Canon Morley, Layreader Lyle and ACW member Dorothy.  Rest eternal grant unto them O Lord.

  • Jan 21st following the 10:30 service, we held a soup lunch in aid of our Lay Co-Chair Lillian's mission to Malawi. We came just short of $400 to help her on her way. Thank you to all who helped especially Diana and Yvonne.

  • Vestry was held January 28th. There were a few interesting presentations along with regular business. Nice to have Max & Kyle Skype in too!

  • We are collecting birthday kits! This is our last Sunday Please consider donating cake mixes, sparklers, icing, foil baking trays etc...required to bake a cake.
