"I am the vine; you are the branches." — John 15:5

Adult Christian Education

Virtual Bible Study

Zoom meetings on Tuesdays.

Baptism

Perhaps you were not nurtured within the Anglican Church.  You may have had a limited connection with Christianity or you may have been a ‘regular’ in another denomination.  If you have not been baptized, please think about that step in your spiritual journey.

Reception

If you were involved in another denomination but have found your ‘home’ with us, talk with Susan+ or Peter+ about being received into the Anglican Communion.

Confirmation

Confirmation preparation classes for those age 14 and older will resume for those wishing to make their adult confession of faith when it is safe to gather. Preparation will include classes, ‘homework’, reading, praying, involvement in worship in the parish and ‘experiential’ components.

Prayer Net

Each time you are at the church say a prayer…for the world, the environment, the parish, the church, social justice issues, for people in need, for healing, for people to come to Christ, for yourself…mark that you have offered that prayer by tying a ribbon to the fish net located just outside the Parish Office.  This is one way to respond to the following: “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5

On Spiritual Matters

Would you like a ‘spiritual direction’ hour with one of the clergy?  Would you like to make private confession known as “Reconciliation of a Penitent”? (The Anglican approach is ‘all may, none must, some should’!)    Please do not hesitate to call or e-mail us to request any of the above.  Church Office 613-824-2010 or st.helen@on.aibn.com
