Connecting During Pandemic Times
St. Matthew’s’ parish family (some of us) began to gather for worship as of August 30th, beginning with outdoor Communion services. We are learning to be flexible and creative, responding to pandemic levels, weather, and the needs of the our community as they become apparent. Services were to move indoors in November; however, the spike in infection numbers has meant that we are not meeting in person for the time being.
Other ways St. Matthew’s people are connecting are through the Worship videos, through Zoom services and gatherings, by phone, and in small groups. If you would like to get more connected, contact the rector at stmatthewswpg (at) shaw.ca.
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.
