Join us at 1701 Elgin Rd at 10am as we gather to listen for the Word of God and to celebrate the Eucharist, or join us live online as we stream the service. Today is the First Sunday of Advent, the first Sunday of the new year in the Church Calendar. Today we light the first Advent candle, and anticipate a fresh encounter with the Light which no darkness can extinguish.

Planning to visit in person?

For those who wish to worship in person, you can read more about how things look at St Mary's under Phase 3 of BC's Restart Plan by following this link. Things do look a little different, but whether we worship in person or online, we worship together.

As you consider whether you should come, give yourself a quick personal health check:

  • Do you feel unwell at all?
  • Do you have an underlying health condition that puts you at greater risk in public places?
  • Do you live with, or care for, someone who is at greater risk?

If you answer 'yes' to any of these questions, please stay home and safe—and if you feel unwell, call 8-1-1 for medical advice.
