St. Matthew’s’ parish family (some of us) gathers for worship in the sanctuary on Sunday mornings, but we’re still in an in-between time, cautious about making others sick but trying to reconnect. We’re having coffee after the service only the first Sunday of every month; we’re hoping to build back to more ways of gathering over then next while.
Other ways St. Matthew’s people are connecting are through the video mini-services; through Zoom “coffee times,” and small groups; by phone; sharing prayer requests and announcements by email; and in small outdoor groups. Not many of us use the Facebook page, but that and Facebook Messenger are also options. If you would like to get more connected, contact the rector.
The Larger Church Family
St. Matthew’s is connected to the larger Anglican Church though the Diocese of Rupert’s Land, the Anglican Church of Canada, and the global Anglican Communion.
