Choral Mattins: Sunday, May 26 at 10:30 AM

Start your Sunday morning off just right by praying choral mattins with us. This quiet and contemplative service lasts for around 50 minutes, giving space to pause for a moment and to welcome the day ahead.

This service is led by the choir, who sing responses, canticles, and the psalms set for the day on our behalf. There are some readings from the Bible, and prayers are said for the Church, the World and ourselves. There is no sermon at this service, but hymns are sung.

Bishop Kevin Robertson, suffragan bishop of Toronto, will officiate choral evensong at St. Thomas, Huron Street. Afterwards, all are welcome to a light reception in the church hall.

News & Resources

Sunday Scripture Readings Online & In-Print

As we continue to work towards more ecologically sustainable practices in our parish, we will share the Sunday readings through a variety of formats. While they will not be included in the worship leaflet, we will have a handful of copies of the readings in the back of the church for you to collect if you wish to follow-along during service or to take home for personal prayer and reflection. You can also read the scripture lessons online by visiting the Anglican Church of Canada's online lectionary. Learn more about each week's readings by visiting Working Preacher, an online commentary provided by Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Pray Morning and Evening Prayer

One of the wonderful gifts of the Anglican Reformation was the introduction of morning and evening prayer for all Christians. Known as the Daily Office, the prayer is a simple time of praying the psalms and contemplating on a scripture reading or two. You can pray the Daily Office online or with your mobile device with apps such as Common Prayer Canada, which is the Book of Common Prayer for the Canadian Church, or the Daily Prayer app from the Church of England, which includes a contemporary version as well as the classic 1662 Book of Common Prayer. Join us Thursdays at 9:30 in the church or on YouTube as we pray morning prayer.
