For our Friends and Fellow Parishioners

Closing the Church
On March 13th, 2020 Bishop Susan, along with the other Ontario Bishops, announced that all churches in the Diocese of Niagara will be closed until further notice. This includes any gathering at the church, no matter how small.
On Sunday March 15th, Bishop Susan live streamed a service of Prayer on the Anglican Diocese of Niagara Facebook page. This video presentation is still available to view. Bishop Susan plans to continue to do so each Sunday at 10 am during the present emergency.
Nigel is continuing to post his homilies online, and we will also video them for as long as we can.
Our diocese has provided a leaflet of Home Prayers for a Time of Pandemic
