Welcome / Bienvenue
Please find, on the attached poster, more information read here about the “Theology in the Laurentians” event led by the Rev. Professor Patricia G. Kirkpatrick!
We will study and discuss Walter Brueggemann’s most recent book entitled Materiality as Resistance: Five Elements for Moral Action in the Real World.
Online sessions will be held on Tuesday mornings, 10am-11:30am, starting May 26 until June 23.
The Zoom connection link is on the poster. Please take the time to watch the trailer.
We hope to have many of you join us. Blessings, Josée
It is no longer Lent. It is not Advent yet. The clergy team has nevertheless decided to make good use of the time we have on our hands as we stay confined in our respective homes and offer two studies starting on the week of April 20th.
Mondays, 1pm to 3pm (7 sessions) – starting April 20th
This is a study on passages of the Gospel of John. It has been put together by the Scottish Bible Society and is entitled “I am”.
Please find attached the pattern for services we will be using throughout the Easter Season, until May 24th, Jerusalem Sunday. Connect here
The service includes everything except the 3 readings, the Psalm and collect for every Sunday. At the end of the document, I have indicated the readings for each Sunday and the page number in the BAS for the Collect of the Day, for those joining by phone who wish to follow in the BAS or in their Bible during the service.
I have also added some information about the May 3rd and May 24th services. On May 3rd, we will remember the Battle of the Atlantic in our prayers and I have indicated some information on this. I did the same for Jerusalem Sunday on May 24th.
The information for Zoom connections can be obtained from your priests, your wardens or your webmaster
The clergy team has decided to proceed this way in order to save on printing and energy spent on delivery of documents.
Looking forward to worshiping with you, Josée
Considering that the celebration of our services using Zoom is going very well, we will continue to worship this way in the coming weeks, as long as our buildings are closed.
You will find attached the services for Evening Prayer click here and Night Prayer click here until May 20th. There is no assumption that our buildings will be closed until May 20th, but this is the date corresponding to the end of a church season, namely the eve of the Ascension of our Lord Jesus.
If you have questions or parishioners have difficulties connecting, please do not hesitate to contact Nick, Tania or myself.
My best wishes, Josée
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."
