Luke 2.10–11


Here is a message from our diocese:

Beginning today, December 22, 2022, Bishop Sandra has advised parishes in the Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island to suspend in-person worship (to be reviewed January 24, 2022). This is a directive for Nova Scotia parishes and an advisement for Prince Edward Island parishes.
As much as we would love to be able to gather for in house worship, safety precautions and the directives of the Nova Scotia Health Authority prevent this. We will be worshipping online for the next few weeks.
Fundscrip orders can be made through Shirley Gale at email or phone 902-865-1168 or Janice Clarke at email  or phone 902-864-3364 by February 6th. Pick up will be on Saturday, February 12th, from 10-11 am.
As disappointing as all this is, we will still praise our God together, we will still celebrate, we will serve those in our community, and we will have a holy, sacred, and beautiful Christmas.
God bless.
O God, whose Word has come among us
in the Holy Child of Bethlehem,
may the light of faith
illumine our hearts
and shine in our words and deeds;
through him who is Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Rev Mark+
