Lenten Study: Living in Exile

March 9 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

|Recurring Events (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until March 23, 2021

For almost 50 years the people of Israel lived in exile in Babylon.  Exile. That place which is not home. Their lives were changed forever. Books in the Old Testament tell us their story.  Where have our lives intersected with theirs? We have been living with the Coronavirus for a year now and with that, have been living in various states of isolation.  We have been in exile from our friends, families, all activities familiar to us.

Our Lenten study will explore how exile might reflect the way we have been living this past year.  Through the scriptures and a series of guest speakers, we will apply this concept of exile as it might affect people of colour, indigenous people, those with mental health illnesses, refugees and those who do not have access to the Corona virus vaccine.

Dates: Tuesdays:  February 23, March 2, March 9, March 16, March 23

Time:  7:00-8:30

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.
