Hospital Visiting

Hospital chaplain would like to visit you! The Rev. Canon David Barrett would like you to remember two things if you are admitted into the hospital:

1. When you’re admitted to the hospital, make sure you tell the clerk you are Anglican.
2. As well, make sure that, if you want a clergy visit, you tell the clerk.




Summer Vacation

Rev. Rob will be on vacation, returning Monday, July 24, 2017. 

In the event of a pastoral emergency, please contact Rev. Springthorp until the end of June or Rev. Weston in July at 634-1474 (Stone Church).



Spring has sprung and prayer walks recommenced this past Thursday at 6:30 from the rectory driveway.  We will continue to go out weekly pending appropriate weather conditions.  We are researching the cost of WAM T-shirts or a flag/banner that would help us stand out on our walks.  If you would like to donate to these please mark it appropriately on your envelope when you pass it over the plate.
