Pandemic Precautions

Wearing masks indoors is still strongly recommended.  We will continue to offer communion from the chancel steps in bread only. 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.

Our Annual Vestry Meeting was held on September 25 at 2:00pm via Zoom.  At that meeting the 2022/23 Budget was approved, we thanked Carol Bailey as she retired from being the People’s Warden and we welcomed Natasha Bond who joins our other wardens: Ken Baxter, James Beckwith and Michael Davies. The Minutes of the meeting, 2022 Annual Report and Financial Statements are linked below. Please give them a read to find out what is happening at St. Peter’s.

StPeter_Erindale_Parish_Profile_2022

Our St. Peter’s Parish Profile is Here

The bishop has approved our Parish Profile document for publication.

The parish profile is a key part of the process of attracting a new priest to work with us as we seek to serve the needs of our church, community and the Gospel. The parish profile is the document on which a prospective applicant will base their decision to take the application further. (adapted from the Diocese of Chichester)

This document will be posted for two months, after which the bishop will suggest several candidates for the Parish Selection Committee to interview.

Reflection on Hybrid Worship

Thank you to all those who joined us on Monday to share their thoughts on the hybrid worship services to help us determine how we move forward in the future. We focused on how various parts of the liturgy help or hinder our connection to God and to fellow worshippers. It was a rich and fruitful conversation. There is still time to submit your thoughts in written form. Please email Rev. Maria Nightingale (associate@stpeterserindale.org) for the questions we considered

Our Pentecost 2022 SPAN is here.

Help Wanted

Sidespeople Needed

With the introduction of hybrid services, we are looking for a few more volunteers to be sidespeople. The most pressing needs are in-person sidespeople for the 8:00 a.m and 11:15 a.m hybrid services and Zoom sidespeople for the 11:15 a.m service. If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Gary Spence at garyspence@rogers.com or speak to any of our friendly sidespeople. As per Diocesan policy, in person volunteers must be fully vaccinated.

Looking for Tech Help and Zoom Hosts

We are looking for people from youth on up who are interested in joining the hybrid services in-church production team and/or co-hosting the Zoom services. We will provide training. Roles include operating the webcams and sound in the church building, and Zoom hosting which can be done in the church building or online, so that we can have “hybrid” church services. Please contact kyoko.h.kobayashi@outlook.com to indicate your interest in being trained for this role.

Deacon’s Cupboard Food Bank

The Deacon’s Cupboard Food Pantry will be starting to give out bags with food items in them for the month of September. We’d greatly appreciate it if you could add some of the items listed below to your shopping list and drop them off at St. Peter’s any time that the church is open.

Cereal, tinned milk, tinned tomatoes, pasta sauce, dry pasta, tuna, tinned fruit, soup, tinned vegetables, macaroni and cheese, baked beans, rice, tea, sugar, soda crackers, pancake mix, syrup, oil (no bigger than 946mls), bottle of juice (no bigger than 1L), peanut butter (small jar)

Thank you so much for your support as we begin to restock our shelves.

At the moment we support an average of 150 families each month with President’s Choice gift cards. This is an expenditure of $7000-$8000 each month. If you cannot make a food donation, please consider making a cash donation to the Deacon’s Cupboard. Donations can be made by cheque (made payable to St. Peter’s Erindale with “Deacon’s Cupboard” in the memo line), via bank eTransfer to giving@stpeterserindale.org (put “Deacon’s Cupboard” in the Comments section) or through CanadaHelps. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Choir Practice

The Parish Choir meets Thursday evenings at 7:30pm in the parish hall. If you are interested joining the choir or in attending hybrid rehearsals, please contact Lori Dolloff at lori.dolloff@utoronto.ca or with any questions involving choir or choral procedures.

COVID Mandatory Vaccination Policy

The Diocese of Toronto is introducing a policy that requires clergy, diocesan employees and volunteers, and parish employees and volunteers to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19. Volunteers who wish to continue doing their ministry in person, please make sure you read the full policy, found here. This policy is to be implemented by September 30th. The bishops and diocesan leadership have decided not to require proof of vaccination to attend worship in an Anglican church in this Diocese, but they strongly recommend vaccination for those who are medically able.

If you have any news or suggestions for future communications that you would like shared with the St. Peter’s Erindale parish, please connect with the Communications Committee or the Clergy for review.
