Fall BBQ & Blessing of the Backpacks

September 11, 2022 at 11:30 am - 2:30 pm

Let’s kick off fall with some fun! Join us for a neighbourhood BBQ: burgers, hotdogs, veggie options! (We may even have a bouncy castle for the kids!)

We’ll also be blessing the backpacks of our children (and really,  of anyone of any age who is going to school!) to start off the school year and semester with grace and joy.

All are welcome!

The Story behind our

Tracking Organ

Our magnificent three manual, tracker-action organ was installed in the chancel of the church in the spring of 1982 and dedicated to the Glory of God and in memory of those who died in the First World War and the Second World War.

The organ, built by the Karl Wilhelm Company of Mont St. Hilaire, Quebec, has a classical continental design. The case is made of white oak and the pipe shades are of carved butternut. Voiced in the classic French style, its 36 stops and 50 ranks are capable of interpreting a wide variety of organ literature.

Installation required considerable changes to the chancel including moving the altar forward and arranging choir seating to either side. These renovations prompted the design and production of our award-winning Benedicite Kneelers, done in needlepoint by a dedicated group of church members.
