Cancellation of Sunday In-person Services
On Friday an "outbreak" was declared at St. Paul’s Centre after discovering that three residents had tested positive for Covid-19. For that reason, and until we have a clearer sense of where things stand, all in-person services at St. Paul’s have been cancelled for this weekend and next. This includes all of the Sunday services and, regrettably, the funeral for Paul Watt which had been scheduled for January 23. It remains the family's wish that the funeral be at St. Paul's which we will act on as soon as we can.
Updates will be passed along as they are available. Sunday's meeting of Vestry on Zoom at 12.30 noon will meet as scheduled.
The full schedule of in-person and online services can be found on the online church calendar - www.stpl.ca/calendar.html - or here: www.stpl.ca/services.html.
