To celebrate the Great Fifty Days of Easter we are invited to participate in House Masses in parishioners’ homes “to develop relationships and fellowship in open, honest and spiritual ways among parishioners, with our neighbours, and those in need”. Please contact one of the clergy if you are interested in hosting a House Mass.

The Mothers' Union Edwardian Strawberry Tea - June 23
noon to 2pm
-home-made sponge cake
-real whipped cream
Back by popular demand is the Mothers’ Union Edwardian Strawberry Tea to be held Sunday, June 23, after High Mass, in the Parish Hall. It will be replacing the normal coffee hour on that Sunday. Again we will be offering home-made sandwiches, strawberry shortcake with freshly picked BC strawberries and whipping cream, and tea and coffee. There will be musical entertainment and recitations.
It is hoped that parishioners will get into the spirit of Edwardian England by wearing a fancy hat or fascinator for the women; bowtie, cravat, waistcoat and/or boater for the men.
If you have holiday plans for that weekend and know you will be away, but would like to
purchase a ticket for someone who cannot afford the $10 charge, this would be most
appreciated. Last year we were able to give away approximately 10 tickets.
Children under 8 are free. The proceeds will be donated to the MU Northern Clergy Families’ Fund, our primary national fundraiser. Click here for a Strawberry Tea flyer.

Recording of John Donne's Second Prebend sermon
In April 2012, People's Warden, Paul Stanwood, recorded one of the greatest sermons in the English language. John Donne's Second Prebend sermon is an extended and glorious meditation on Psalm 63:7 Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
