We are happily greeting you in the season of Pentecost! This is a season for us to reflect on the wide diversity of gifts, skills, talents and experience within our community. We are a community of faith, called to live fully in our faith wherever we are and whomever we meet.
It's the month of June now, with its longer hours of sunlight. It's also Pride Month, but we believe that welcome and appreciation are year-round opportunities for grace. St. Matthias warmly and genuinely welcomes everyone who comes through our door, including anyone who sees themself in the rainbow banner or the abbreviation LGBTQ2IA+. So, when we say we welcome you "whoever you are," please know that our welcome is without condition or limit. And ... it's year 'round.
We invite you to click on the "Chapel Gallery" box at the top of the page for an update on our journey forward with "The Arts at St. Matthias."
We invite you to join our in-person worship. No experience required! Come as you are and enjoy a warm welcome.
At St. Matthias we join with all Canadians as we reflect on the complex, often painful, history that is the heritage we share, whether our families have been here since time out of mind, for many generations, or whether we are "brand new" to Canada. Respectfully, we acknowledge the legacy of the residential schools. We listen. We grieve. We honour. We commit to action.
The church is more than buildings and programs. We are the body of Christ present in this world no matter where we are. We are a church without walls. Thank you for your virtual visit! All are welcome here.
Mark your calendars for these great events coming up.
