Welcome / Bienvenue
Please find a Memo prepared by the members of the clergy team. It contains very important information so we invite you to take the time to read it even if your church is not reopening this Fall.
The other document link: Parishoners Guideline is referred to in the memo and will be useful to the churches that are reopening. Service of the Word (SW1) link shows a copy of that service showing parishioners’ responses. The same service will be used online and in-person during that month.
We wish you a nice continuation of Summer. Enjoy every minute of it! Blessings, Josée
In the Summer 2020 edition of the Anglican Montreal, there is an article about the wonderful online fundraising effort done by St. Paul's, Dunany. Due to Covid -19, they could not hold their annual Easter Service and "Pray and Play" day in May so they did an amazing fundraiser online and raised the fabulous amount of $15,000.00 for the Centre d' Entraide d'Argenteuil and $1,000.00 for the Laurentian Elementary School. Congratulations to all who participated in this community activity. To read Wendy Crooks' article go to the Montreal Anglican site www.montreal.anglican.ca

You will find attached the service for Evening Prayer click here. Throughout the autumn, most of our buildings will remain closed and Evening Prayer will continue at 5:00 PM on Zoom!
If you have questions or parishioners have difficulties connecting, please do not hesitate to contact Nick, Tania or myself.

We, of the Parish of the Lower Laurentians, wish to prayerfully follow the footsteps of our Lord and Saviour, taking steps slowly and carefully as we grow together as a parish of four congregations.
We want to be inclusive and welcoming of all who enter our doors and to meet our community members where they are.
We want to be an outreaching parish, showing concern for and sharing the good news with our neighbours both near and far.
We want to develop an uplifting, spiritual parish, with the individual growth of each congregation and a strong parish ministry sharing the many talents of all of its members.
We want to be prepared for change, open to new ideas, and ready to prayerfully answer God's call to us.
We offer this unto our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, and ask that His will be done through all our actions and decisions.
"There are different kinds of gifts, but the same spirit; different kinds of service, but the same Lord; different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all people."
