Wednesday night Eucharist this summer

With the gorgeous weather now finally upon us, we are all aware of how short the summer season is in this part of the world. Weekends can be hectic and Sunday morning worship often becomes difficult.


For those who cannot make it to the regular celebration of the Eucharist on Sundays morning, just remember that we also offer our Wednesday night Eucharist at 6:00pm.

Our Wednesday liturgy is a little different than Sunday morning. This summer we are using a beautiful Celtic liturgy (with inclusive, i.e. non-gender specific language in reference to God). We also offer incense at the service and may even introduce the use of bells this summer. Fr. Jamie usually gives a short homily (often using the humorous reflections of Fr. John-Julian, OJN, who also manages to give a new insights into the saints and feast days of the Church).

For major feast days, James Mackay, our organist, will join us with music. On other Wednesdays the only music is the chanted Sursum Corda.

And, as always, several of us gather for supper at a different local restaurant following the service.







So, join us this summer either on Sunday mornings at 11:00 am or Wednesday evenings at 6:00 pm.
