A copy of the Easter homily by Rev. Linda Privtera is available in the Parish Office.
Our main services of worship are the Sunday morning Eucharist’s at 8:00 and 9:30. The 8:00 service is a quiet said service. The 9:30 service has music and hymns. During the 9:30 service the children are also invited to join the Church School following the Children’s story (usually with puppets). There is an area in the Church for the children to colour pictures or to read books that are available. We gather for fellowship and coffee after the 9:30 service.
Each Wednesday we gather in the Chapel for a 10:00 a.m. This service of the Eucharist (Holy Communion) includes two hymns and is a little less formal. There is a time of fellowship and coffee after the service. On the first Sunday of each month (from October to June) we hold Jazz Vespers at 4:30 p.m. Jazz Vespers is a special service that joins together wonderful Jazz music played by local musicians and a quiet time of prayer and reflection.
On the fourth Sunday of each month (from September to June) we hold Evensong in our Chapel at 4:30 p.m. Evensong is led by a special All Saints’ choir and brings together traditional (Book of Common Prayer) worship with music and hymns. Other occasional services include Celtic Vespers on the Sunday closest to March 17th; the Blessing of the Animals Service on the Sunday closest to October 4th; and Blue Christmas on a Sunday before Christmas.
Open on most Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 12:00 to 1:30 pm
Our lovely Chapel of the Holy Spirit is a welcome haven for both congregation members and the community as a whole. For anyone seeking respite from the busy world around us, the chapel provides a quiet sense of serenity and peacefulness, a place for spiritual meditation and prayer if that is what you seek. Everyone is welcome, whether regular church-goers or not. From the lively streets of Westboro we welcome those working in the community, shoppers, out-of-town visitors, curious passers-by and anyone seeking solace from our troubled world.
The chapel itself is of interest for its architectural renown and historic significance. The stained glass windows, artistic wall hangings, and spiritual music add to the ambiance of this very spiritual place. A chapel volunteer is available to welcome you and answer any questions you may have or direct you to other parts of the church if necessary.
May those who enter these hallowed walls experience the presence of the Holy Spirit in whatever form it is acceptable to them, and bring them a sense of comfort and peace.
