On September 19th we were pleased to install Martha Riddell as our Parish Curate. Martha begins with us as a Lay Pastoral Associate, and we look forward, God willing to her ordination as a Deacon a little ways down the road.
We are pleased to announce the appointment of Martha Riddell as Lay Pastoral Associate effective September 15th, 2021. It is the Bishop’s intention, God willing, to ordain Martha to the Diaconate at a future date, at which time her official designation will become Assistant Curate.
Martha will share in the Worship, Pastoral Care, Congregational Development, Christian Formation, Outreach and Administration of our parish.
Martha is a committed, faithful, and enthusiastic Christian who has grown up in the Anglican Church. She recently received her Masters in Divinity from Trinity College (University of Toronto), having previous being granted a Bachelor of Arts (Classical Studies) from Bishop’s University in Lennoxville, Quebec. She also holds a Diploma in Liberal Arts from Seneca College in Toronto. She has experience as a Child & Youth Minister at St Olave’s, Toronto as well as being part of several programs at St Bartholomew’s, Toronto. She is also an avid fan of opera, theatre, and concerts. Martha is married to Jared Tomlinson.
As the Ontario Reopening Plan proceeds, in-person services in the church resume on July 11th. Services are at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m., and follow our pandemic-safe protocols. These include wearing masks, and keeping 6 feet of distance from others.
Due to the Provincial Shut Down that began April 3rd, our church buildings are again closed for at least 4 weeks. Join us for worship online at our YouTube channel which you can find using the button below
The Annual Vestry Meeting will take place on Sunday March 14th at 11:00 a.m. as part of a modified worship service. So long as we are still open for in-person services, the meeting will be in the church with remote participation available using Zoom; otherwise it will be a Zoom meeting.
The Annual Reports Booklet is available at the church -- call the church office (613-476-3303) if you are local and would like a copy dropped off at your home. The electronic version of the reports booklet can be accessed by clicking on the cover image at right.
In person services following careful pandemic-safe protocols resume February 17th. Sunday Services at 9:00 and 11:00.
The Province of Ontario is to be largely shutdown as of Boxing Day. Our Anglican Diocese of Ontario has determined that the safest and most prudent course is to begin the shutdown of our churches as of Christmas Eve.
As a result, our Christmas Services and Sunday Services for at least the next 4 weeks will move online. You can find them by following this link to our YouTube Channel.
This is disappointing, but supports our objective of making it through this pandemic as safely as possible. Please contact the church if there is anything we can do to help during this new shutdown.
We have been back in church for two Sundays at 9 and 11 am. Everyone who has come is glad to be back, and so far we have not come near our limit of 50 for each service, so we expect to be able to accomodate everyone who wants to come to either service.
Of course, not everyone is able to return at this point in the pandemic, especially those at greater risk. So the 11 am service is available via livestream. You can watch it as it happens, or anytime after, and you can watch past services. They are all available at our YouTube Channel, which you can visit by clicking the button below.
