People are nurtured in body, mind and spirit!

Notice: Beacon House retail has closed so our volunteers will not be required on Saturday, April 4th.

See the top menu option – Resources for Worship at Home – for links to help you stay connected with God during this difficult time or when you cannot get out to church.

    For those of you wondering how you can continue to support the Parish during this temporary closure – you may contact Alana to set up a Preauthorized Giving plan. Those wishing to continue with their regular offerings, and who are not on PAG, are asked to please leave a message on the office phone and someone will be in touch to advise you how to do this.
There are many resources being offered on-line to help you with worship during this time and Bishop Sue and I will post various items from time to time. Archbishop Ron also offers support through prayer – visit the Diocesan web page to find the links.
Bishop Sue, the Wardens and I continue to hold you all in prayer.
Blessings and stay safe
Rev. Ruby

Prayer for a Pandemic

(from St. Paul’s Church, Lexington, Ken., shared by the Primate, Archbishop Linda Nicholls)

May we who are merely inconvenienced
     Remember those whose lives are at stake.
May we who have no risk factors
    Remember those most vulnerable.
May we who have the luxury of working from home
    Remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent.
May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close,
    Remember those who have no options.
May we who have to cancel our trips
    Remember those that have no safe place to go.
May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market
    Remember those who have no margin at all.
May we who settle in for a quarantine at home
    Remember those who have no home.
As fear grips our country,
    Let us choose love.
During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other,
    Let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbour.
Amen.
