Lenten Video Series: Self-Examination

This Lent we begin a video series exploring the practices of a holy Lent. Each week we will share a video of a cleric from St. Peter’s speaking about a particular practice: self-examination, penitence, prayer, fasting, almsgiving and reading and meditating on the word of God. As we move through Lent and this video series, we will discern how we can all observe a holy Lent this year. This week Rev. Roshni discusses what it means to observe a holy lent by self-examination. https://youtu.be/Euv5RxCX3Tk
Feel free to share your own reflections on this practice and your Lenten journey with her at rector@stpeterserindale.ca or 905-828-2095.

Worship Update

We recognize that COVID-19 continues to impact our lives and particularly some of the most vulnerable groups among us. You are encouraged to remember that how you participate in worship is your own choice, and your choices may look different from others in our community. However, we continue on this journey together, loving God and our neighbour in this holy time. If you have questions, please contact Rev. Roshni Jayawardena or Rev. Maria Nightingale.

Pandemic Precautions

Wearing masks indoors still is strongly recommended. If you feel ill, please attend an online service rather than in person. Thank you for serving God with your time and talent, and showing love for your neighbour by doing all you can to keep them healthy.

Serving Christ and Your Neighbour

Volunteers needed

We are grateful for all those who offer their time and talent throughout the church year. We need more people to volunteer in-person and online for our Sunday services and programs throughout the week. Consider your gifts and talents, and please get in touch with one of the clergy or the church office to discuss possibilities for service. Thank you!
Additional training and screening may be necessary depending on the work being done.

Church School

We continue to look for teachers and helpers to build up this ministry.  Please speak to Rev. Roshni (rector@stpeterserindale.ca) or Linda Ghirardo (Churchschoolstpeterserindale@outlook.com) if interested. Training, support and curriculum are provided. As this ministry involves children, there is also a mandatory screening process involved.
