Thanks for your visit!

St. Matthias welcomes you -- whoever you are, wherever you are in your journey of faith or questioning.  

June is Pride month and it is important that we acknowledge that 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.  

We are worshipping in person! On Sunday, June 26th, we are delighted to welcome Reverend Colleen Lissamer, the new priest at St. Matthias!  Please join us for worship at 10 am and stay for coffee and treats afterward, to say hi!  

We celebrated the great feast of Pentecost, fulfilling the wonderful Easter promise.  And now, inspired by this wonderful promise of God's love for each of us, we use this season to practice the presence of God through faith and action in our communities.   So:  long-time neighbour, first-time visitor, please know we will be delighted to see you! Come as you are ... and feel our 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.
