Events at a Glance

  • E.T.A. Dinner at Olympia Restaurant – Wed. Dec. 21 @ 5pm
    Preceding the Blue Christmas Service at St. Paul’s, a service for those of us who find Christmas hard. Anyone who is alone for activities is welcome to attend. Couples or your friends are welcome but mingling is encouraged so that everyone feels welcome.
    Sign up on bulletin board or call Donna at 705-328-3692 to ensure there is space
  • Blue Christmas of Hope – Wed. December 21st at 7:00 p.m. is a service of worship designed for people suffering with loneliness and grief in the Advent season. We remember those for whom the holidays are not joyful; and yet are often compelled to ‘put on a happy face’ for others, denying their true feelings.

Christmas Dinner 2016 – December 25th – 4:30 p.m.
At 4:30 p.m. on December 25th we will be hosting our 18th annual Christmas dinner at St. Paul’s for people who are unable to
prepare a festive meal, and/or would otherwise be alone. A lot of preparation and planning goes into ensuring that we not only
feed the body, but also the soul and spirit of our guests (approximately 120 persons).

christmas-dinnerAre YOU able to help in any of the following areas to make this year’s dinner successful?

  • Putting up the tables and chairs
  • Setting up the dining area
  • Baking squares and other Christmas goodies
  • Financial help would be appreciated (any amount over $10.00 will receive a tax receipt)

St. Paul’s Christmas Dinner is a special annual event that brings together volunteers from several churches and local agencies as well as many of our own parishioners. More importantly it provides a delicious meal and fellowship for those who cannot afford a Christmas dinner or for those who might otherwise be alone on Christmas day.

For many volunteers, the time put aside to help us as a “CHRISTMAS GIFT” – a giving back to the community.
If you wish to help or donate towards the meal, please call Valerie at the church office 705-324-4666 and she’ll sign you up for one of
the available positions.

Celebrating the birth of Christ this way, our day and yours are likely to be enriched.”

Lindy MackeyMusic Program gets generous boost

St. Paul’s Anglican Church has received a very generous donation from Lindy Mackey of Mackey Funeral Home towards the music program for our 180th Anniversary. The donation is so generous that it will help us fund other music guests into 2017. From Lindy Mackey

“We are pleased to support the presence of music in this 180th anniversary celebration. Music is a common language we all enjoy….it is uplifting…it influences the heart and soul of each who feel it. It is a gift for all to participate in. Congratulations on 180 years.”

Please join us in thanking Lindy for this wonderful gesture.

Self Guided Walking Tour of St. Paul’s

Visitors coming this summer? Bring them to the church during office hours and let them look at the stain glass windows and other details of the church or a time to show your friends the church that you attend. We have self-guided pamphlets available at the church entrances to assist in the tour.
