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 most of our buildings are closed.New measures for re-opening are being discussed at the Diocesan level and more information will be available later.
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.

Zoom links and passwords that you will need to join the Zoom meetings for 5pm services this week (Monday to Saturday inclusively) and to join Sunday services during the month of April. These have changed following the tightening of security on Zoom. Please circulate among our parishioners but do not post on websites or other public platforms. I suggest that on the internet you indicate to contact a warden or one of the priests to obtain the Zoom information regarding connections.
I am attaching the texts to be printed, for those who will be connecting by phone, for Maundy Thursday click here, Good Friday click here and Holy Saturday click here. The documents that have coloured pictures may be printed either in colour or black and white, as you wish.
Do not hesitate to contact one of the clergy if you have questions.
Yours in Christ, Josée
During this special season, we are coming with a spread of services, just like we would have done if we were meeting in our buildings.
All services will be available via Zoom so both those who have internet and those who don’t may join us. Those who don’t have internet may join us by phone; the phone connections work better this week because only the Zoom subscribers (like us) have access to them now. Meeting via Zoom on Sunday mornings will allow us to stay connected after the service for an online coffee hour. How’s that? Please contact your priests for the Zoom Information.
To replace palms - We don’t have palms and won’t be processing Palm Sunday this year but Quitterie has shared a link, a very good idea: to hang some branches on the door of our houses. See the link: https://thedeaconsbench.com/a-beautiful-idea-for-palm-sunday/. If you do that, please take a picture and send it to me to share on Facebook or our website.Click here to get the service
Yours in Christ,Josée
