PARISH LIFE NOTES
PASTORAL EMERGENCY CONTACT. Revd. Paula Foster
A QUICK REMINDER TO EACH OF US. If you use the Montague Street entrance on Sunday mornings, please be observant of anyone who is new and welcome them. If needed, be willing to direct them upstairs to the sanctuary, show them where to hang their coats, where the washrooms are, and how to use the elevator, etc. The greeters are upstairs at the Sanctuary doors inviting people in, welcoming them and handing out brochures beginning at 10 AM Sunday mornings.
Thank to everyone for making St. Mary’s an inviting welcoming Church community.
Advent Small Groups – The Prodigal Son
In Advent, we look back to the first coming of Jesus into our fallen world, and we look forward to his second coming to establish his Kingdom once and for all. Advent, then, becomes a time where we contemplate our relationship with God, and our place in the Kingdom. Jesus’ parable of the Prodigal Son, found in Luke’s Gospel, addresses these questions of relationship with God and place in God’s Kingdom.
This Advent Season, we welcome you to journey together with us in small groups through the Parable of the Prodigal Son. What is God saying to us as Christians, and to us as his Church at St. Mary’s, in this Advent Season?
Because of the ongoing pressures of COVID-19 in our city, small groups will be meeting online over Zoom for three weeks beginning after the first Sunday of Advent, November 28th.
- 7 PM Monday — Hosts Nat and Mary
- 7 PM Wednesday — Host Katherine
- 7 PM Thursday — Host Henry
- 7 PM Saturday — Host Beth
