The parish of St. Paul's is called to prayer on the 2nd Sunday of Advent. The in-person services are fully booked, but the Sunday recording is available and all are welcome at Evening Prayer by Zoom. Service information can be found here: Services.
Advent & Christmas 2020
Last Friday the maximum number allowed at a church service in Toronto was reduced to 10 by provincial and city authorities, endorsed by our bishops. Every indication is that those restrictions are going to be with us through the Christmas season.
And so, like Lent and Easter this year, we will observe Advent and Christmas closer to home. Odd as it may seem, a lot of distractions have been removed, many which hinder our prayers.
*We will provide an online Christmas recording as we’ve done since last March. Fr. Arthur Boers will preach.
*We will gather by Zoom on Christmas Eve so that as many as possible, by phone or computer, may join together for a simple service of lessons and reflection, and carols led by David McCartney (we can sing in our homes!);
*We will do our very best to accommodate everyone who wishes to receive the sacrament and a Christmas blessing - though not all at once. This year St. Paul’s will take full advantage of the 12 Days of Christmas. This is by reservation only, which can be done by calling the office (416-499-1545) or using the online reservation system.
Advent Memorial Service
Join us for the annual Advent Memorial Service, this year by Zoom, on Saturday, December 19, at 7.00 p.m., as we remember before God those who have died this past year.
