Following the advice of the Chief Medical Officer of Health of Ontario and diocesan guidelines, we strongly encourage you to wear a high-quality medical mask for in-person attendance.
We had some issues with our live-stream this week, but you can now view the service at YouTube here.
You can find the order of service here. It includes the readings, the responses, and the words of the hymns, so you can join in as fully as possible via the live-stream.
Sundays and Seasons offers this reflection on this Sunday’s readings:
The new church year begins with a wake-up call: Christ is coming soon! In today’s readings both Paul and Jesus challenge us to wake from sleep, for we know neither the day nor hour of the Lord’s coming. Isaiah proclaims the day when God will gather all people on the holy mountain and there will be no more war or suffering. Though we vigilantly watch for the promised day of salvation, we wait for what we already have: Christ comes among us this day as the word and meal that strengthens our faith in the promises of God.
