Morning Prayer Resumes This Week
Now that I am back, I invite you to join me for daily morning prayer at 9:00. It’s a wonderful way to start the day with prayer and the reading of short Scripture passages. All are welcome!
Midweek Eucharist on Tuesday at 7:00 p.m.
Our midweek Eucharist will resume this week. I invite all of you to join us for our simple celebration of Holy Communion.
General Synod Open Discussion: Tuesday, June 16, 7:30 p.m.
Many of you know the Anglican Church of Canada has been meeting this week. A gathering of bishops, clergy, and lay delegates, the synod will elect the next primate of the Anglican Church of Canada and vote on two significant matters: an autonomous governing body for indigenous peoples and the modification of the canon on marriage to permit gay marriage.
This Tuesday, June 16 at 7:30 p.m., I invite you to join me for reflection and discussion about the results of the synod. We will meet immediately after the 7:00 p.m. Eucharist to which all of you are invited. I hope and pray our time together will give us an opportunity to discern our parish’s response to the decisions made at General Synod and to openly express our thoughts and reactions to the synod.
