The goverment of the Province of Ontario has today tightened protocols and restrictions in light the the growing threat of the COVID-19 pandemic latest variant. There is serious concern that the province's health care systems will soon be overwhelmed.
We all need to do our part to protect one another and especially the most vulnerable among us. This means reducing the number of our contacts with those outside our household as much as possible; practicing physical distancing and wearing masks when we must be present with others; and getting fully vaccinated, which now includes a third booster dose of vaccine.
At St. John's this means that our worship gatherings will remain online for the foreseeable future. The church building is closed to all but the most essential activities, including the church office which is accessable by appointment only. The rector remains available for those who require pastoral care and can be reached at email@example.com. Keep an eye on this website for news of online opportunities for other parish programming.
We encourage everyone to practice their faith in acts of love, compassion, and generosity towards others. Be in touch by telephone with someone you haven't seen for a while; it will brighten their day and yours. Be kind to yourself and do all that you can to keep those around you safe.
The office remains closed due the the coronavirus pandemic and is opened only by appointment.
Preregistration is no longer required to attend worship services. Masking is no longer required, but is recommended.
We acknowledge with gratitude and respect that our parish is located on the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe peoples. We are located in the Lower Chedoke Watershed.
