Black History Month Celebration:
Sunday, February 12, 10:30 AM

On Sunday, February 12, we will celebrate Black History Month with a special liturgy and reception. On that day we will welcome Bishop Peter Fenty as guest preacher and celebrate the extraordinary contribution of Black Canadians to the Church and society, particularly our own parish’s history. 


If you would like to help with the planning of our celebrations, we will have a meeting immediately after church this Sunday, January 8. We appreciate your support of this ministry!

Faith and Book Series:
Sunday, February 19th, 12:00 PM

The next book in our Faith and Books series will feature the short stories of American writer Flannery O’Connor. Raised in Savannah, Georgia, O’Connor was a renowned author and essayist whose short stories won her great acclaim, particularly after her early death in 1964. Often considered to belong to the American Gothic literary style, O’Connor’s short stories explore the themes of race, crime, and religion through unlikely and unexpected characters. Her stories are often dark and brutal, yet they also bring to light the Christian themes of redemption and resurrection. Some suggest that her stories illustrate the essence of the Paschal Mystery, that all of us must suffer and experience death before we can experience life. 


For our next series which will take place shortly after church on February 19 at noon, we will discuss five of her stories which may either be found in her Complete Stories collection or in the smaller collection of short stories entitled Everything that Rises Must Converge. Both are available from Indigo and your favourite independent bookseller. We will read and discuss: “Revelation,” “The Lame Shall Enter First,” “Parker’s Back,” “Enduring Chill,” and “Everything that Rises Must Converge.” 


Bring your own sack lunch and join us on February 19th after church for a lively discussion of O’Connor’s stories. We hope to see you there!
