HOW TO PRAY IN THE TIME BETWEEN WORSHIP VIDEOS

THIS IS WHO WE ARE!

St. Anne's is a lively progressive Anglican congregation in the west end of downtown Toronto. Our church building is a national historic site, a Byzantine revival church inspired by the architecture of the Hagia Sophia, and the home of the only known religious paintings by Canada's iconic Group of Seven.

We are an inclusive and fully accessible neighbourhood-minded community. All people are welcome to
worship God with us.

We believe God wants a church that cares unselfishly for the good of all. That's the church we strive to be - in Sunday morning worship and through a full calendar of opportunities to learn, experience the arts, and engage the world of nature. We care about justice. We are committed to serving and caring for those in need.

Our ministry team is here for you
and always ready to encourage you.

We invite you to be part of
what we are doing at St. Anne's:

Bringing the Community together for Good.

A Holy Lenten Journey

Join Louise Simos and Tim+ for six Wednesdays from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. on Zoom:

Wednesday, February 24
Wednesday, March 3
Wednesday, March 10
Wednesday, March 17
Wednesday, March 24
Wednesday, March 31

Each evening will focus thematically on one of the upcoming Sunday readings as we seek to deepen our faith through creative exploration. Together we will respond to the text through colour and words, music and images, imagination, and poetry. We will end each evening by lighting a candle and sharing a quiet prayer service of compline.

Some of our time together will be spent creating as a form of healing prayer and Lenten preparation. When we create something, we are present and focused -- the time we spend can renew our spirit, help heal our soul and bring us closer to God. There is no expectation of any artistic talent or skill – if you can hold a pen, you can participate fully! A package of materials will be mailed to participants who register in advance.

To register, or if you have any questions, please email louise.simos@gmail.com. If you are a Zoom novice or can only join by phone, we can make it comfortable for you – just let us know.
