As per the provincial protocols at this time, in person worship at St. Paul’s has been paused. We will post links to online worship services you can enter into for Christmas and Sunday mornings to come.
This online liturgy allows us to continue worshiping corporately together even as we are socially isolated at this time. Today we welcome the children and young people of the parish who are participating in the liturgy. We take the opportunity to remember it was Earth Day this week as well as to pray for all those affected by the tragic shooting in Nova Scotia last weekend.
If you can, please join in at 10:30 am on Sunday so that we are worshiping corporately together as the body of Christ. As always, though, if you are not available at that time, please enter into the worship at a time that is convenient to you.
Join us as we continue to celebrate the joy and hope of this glorious Easter season. We welcome Bishop Riscylla Shaw who shares a reflection with us.
If you can, join in with worshiping with others at 10:30 on Sunday morning. As such, even though we are socially distanced and isolated, we can worshiping corporately together as the body of Christ at St. Paul’s.
If that time of 10:30 on Sunday isn’t convenient for you, please do enter into the worship at your convenience.
What’s so important in such a time as this is that we hold on to our faith and the hope that God gives to us through the risen Christ.
Alleluia, Christ is risen … Christ is risen indeed, Alleluia!!
Join us to celebrate the joy, hope and promise of Easter. Through the gift of joyous music, prayers, scripture and a reflection on what this day means to us as followers of the risen Christ, we gather together in worship on this most holy day even though we are socially isolated in our own homes and in front of our computer screens.
You are invited to enter into this liturgy on Sunday at 10:30 if it is convenient for you. In so doing, we will be worshiping together even as we can’t gather in our parish church. However, if that is not a convenient time for you, please do enter into this liturgy when you can to celebrate the gift, hope and promise of our Easter faith.
On this most holy and sacred day, we remember the passion and death of our Lord Jesus Christ on the cross of Good Friday. In his death, we are blessed, we are saved, we are forgiven … and all by God’s grace.
I invite you into this solemn liturgy when we remember all this day means to us and the gift of faith God has blessed us with for every day of our lives, but especially for such a time as this, confronting Covid 19.
We gather for worship on this most holy and sacred day, Palm Sunday, as we begin this holy and sacred journey through this holy and sacred week. We will sing our classic Palm Sunday hymns … pray together … hear God’s word to us … and hear a reflection by the Rev. Canon Mark Kinghan.
We especially need to be affirmed in the story of the way of the cross and empty tomb in these days we are experiencing.
I invite you to light a candle … and although dispersed in our own homes, in front of our own computers, if you are able to enter the liturgy at 10:30 am in order to worship collectively with one another.
If you are unable to do so at 10:30 … I encourage you to enter into the liturgy for this most holy day at your convenience.
Through scripture, reflection and prayers, we find comfort and peace through the readings of the lectionary for this past Sunday. They weren’t chosen specifically for this time; they are used every three years in the cycle … and yet they are so pertinent to what we are experiencing now.
Please join in on this liturgy of prayer, scripture and a reflection by our area bishop, The Right Reverend Riscylla Shaw. We may be scattered in our individual homes, in front our computer screen, but as we tune into this video together at 10:30 we are united together as the body of Christ.
If the video begins a few seconds or minutes in, rewind to the “0” mark to hear the introduction by the bishop and I.
