Dear Friends 

We hope you can join in worship for Holy Eucharist, BAS format, at 10:30 am this Sunday.  If you feel unwell or are uncomfortable coming to church, please request the Zoom option by calling a warden. Zoom coverage will be available as requested.

Please remember in your prayers:

– the clergy and parishioners of our Diocese

– those who are sick, suffering, fearful or in need, and their caregivers, those feeling isolated and those who are vulnerable;

– for peace within our country, and in the world, remembering the country of Ukraine, areas of unrest and riots, and asking for wise discernment in our leaders;

– those who have died and those who mourn;

– the victims of violence and natural disasters;

– our Indigenous brothers and sisters, especially remembering their hurt and grief at this time; and hoping we can develop communication and fellowship between us.

– refugees, remembering those fleeing the Taliban regime, and those fleeing war in the Ukraine.

– those who are persecuted and oppressed for their faith in Jesus Christ
