Join us for Mid Week Advent Vespers

Advent is that time of the year when we expectantly wait for and prepare ourselves to celebrate the coming of the long expected one a little over 2000 years ago and also to prepare ourselves for the return of Christ.  

Mid-week Advent Vespers will be held
on Wednesday  16 and 23, 7pm, on Zoom. 
As we normally do, we will use the Holden Evening Prayer.  We will use the same link that is used for vespers. (see links below)

Light three candles to watch for Messiah: let the light banish darkness

Lift your heads and lift high the gateway for the King of Glory.

On Sunday, we will light the third advent candle. In some traditions the third candle might be pink or rose and represents Gaudette Sunday and the joy that the birth of Christ brought to the world.

Please Remember to Sign in when visiting the building

It is just a white binder in the entrance hall. It is easy to overlook and its easy not to bother to sign in when you visit. Please don't ignore the white binder. 

This week we learned just how important that sign in information becomes when tyring to understand who was in the building. Please take the few seconds required to sign in every time you visit, even if it is twice in one day.

In Our Prayers

In our

Prayers

Let us continue to remember Margaret, David, Rosalie, Marjorie, Barb, Peter, George, Wilhelmina, and Betty  in our prayers, for wholeness and relief. Let us also pray for Bill and Karen Gastmeier and their family as they mourn the death of Bill’s brother Andrew.  Let us remember those without proper shelter and food during these days of Advent leading to Christmas. Pray for local, provincial and national governments as they work towards alleviating the situation.  Remember all those organizations that work in helping these folks. Let us continue to pray for everyone impacted by the pandemic and pray that a vaccine would be available soon.
