We will be having in person worship at 9am and 11am.  This will be the Fourth of the Five Sundays of the Season of Creation and Orange Shirt Sunday, when we remember and lament  the legacy of the residential schools.   We have limited spaces at services to allow for physical distancing.  Masks are required for all people over 2 at the service. Please RSVP to the office for in person worship.  If possible, please wear an orange shirt or some orange clothing.

We will be offering at 9am, Book of Common Prayer Holy Communion and at 11am, Book of Alternative Services Holy Eucharist with Confirmation and music.  The 11am service will be live streamed on our YouTube Channel.

The Doctrine of Discovery study team will be taking leadership of both services including Canon Sharon Dunlop who will preach.  We are delighted to have Kim Maracle and Lynn Brant from Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory to help lead this service including some special music.
