May 8 – Ascension Sunday

Ascension Sunday, May 8, 2016:
8:00 am – Said Eucharist

10:00 am – Choral Eucharist
with Sunday School

There are 50 days to the Season of Easter, It starts with the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus on Easter Day (March 27 this year), and extends through Ascension (May 5 – 40 days after Easter) and Ascension Sunday (May 8), to Pentecost (May 15). Through the Easter season, we remember and celebrate the implications of the Resurrection.

Sunday, April 24, 2016: 10:00 am – Blanket Exercise
On April 24, a “blanket exercise” was held in the parish hall – representing Turtle Island (traditional name of North America), with blankets representing the aboriginal lands that have shrunk from 100% of pre-settler Canada to about 0.1% of Canada today.This “blanket exercise” promotes understanding of¬† First Nations’ experience with settlement and the reserve system.
Each participant brings a blanket.

Everyone is welcome to join in our celebrations each Sunday: 8:00am, 10:00am and 7:00pm (Worship Room), and Wednesdays 9:30am. After each service, there is an opportunity for fellowship, support for you and perhaps a good home for your talents in our choir, discussion and service groups, and Sunday School.

Our choir sings at the 10 am Choral Eucharist each Sunday. If you would like to join the choir, please speak to any member of the choir. Their rehearsals are Sundays at 11:30 am, following the 10 am service (and a quick coffee!)

 

 

 

 

Contemplative Prayer

Contemplative Prayer

Silence. Peace.

Prayer may use words in silence to touch concerns and to approach God. Contemplative prayer takes silence to a deeper level, where our inner voices can also be silent.

Inner silence. Inner peace.
