2018–2019 Litur­gies and Read­ings Oct 7 — Mar 10 long

2018 Litur­gies and Read­ings– Pen­te­cost 3 to Thanks­giv­ing Sun­day

 

Sunday services are held at 10:00 am and alternate between the traditional (BCP: Book of Common Prayer) and contemporary (BAS:  Book of Alternative Services) format. Sunday school and nursery programs run each week during the service, and the Sunday School program finishes in time to allow all members of the St. Paul’s spiritual family to enjoy Communion together.   St. Paul’s welcomes all baptized Christians to partake in Communion, and invites all others to come to the Lord’s table for a blessing.

Unless a Sun­day clo­sure is post­ed on this page by 8.00 am on the day, the church will be open for the sched­uled litur­gy. (We also post on our Face­book page and send a parish email to those who have sub­scribed to this list, as well as edit our voice­mail notice for those who do not use our web­site or Face­book).

  

2018 MUSIC & ART AT ST. PAUL’S!

On Sun­day, Dec 23rd, 2018 our Artist-in-res­i­dence com­plet­ed his visu­al Advent nar­ra­tive and dis­play … the 4th Advent print. After the litur­gy, Nathan facil­i­tat­ed a print­ing ses­sion at the back of the church (rear Nave) where all could see the orig­i­nal carv­ings and folks were invit­ed to make a print for them­selves! Thank you Nathan Lit­tle!

At our Epiphany Sun­day ser­vice (Jan. 6’19 this year), Nathan’s ‘Jour­ney of the St. Paul’s Magi’ was recapped via our Pow­er­point for the con­gre­ga­tion.  This was the sec­ond year that our Artist-in-Res­i­dence took St. Paul’s Face­book fol­low­ers on a tour of Hal­i­fax from the per­spec­tive of our mini wood­en Magi fig­ures … much to the delight of every­one!

Music fea­tures promi­nent­ly in the spir­i­tu­al life of St Paul’s, and wor­ship ser­vices are enhanced through the work of the church’s extreme­ly tal­ent­ed music team under the direc­tion of the mul­ti-tal­ent­ed Andrew Killawee. 

Tra­di­tion­al ser­vices fea­ture the St Paul’s choir, and music pro­vid­ed by the church’s grand organ. Dur­ing con­tem­po­rary ser­vices, music is pro­vid­ed by an instru­men­tal ensem­ble fea­tur­ing singers, as well as a vari­ety of wood wind, per­cus­sion and stringed instru­ments. 

In addi­tion to the Sun­day ser­vice, St Paul’s also holds a Chan­cel Eucharist ser­vice each Wednes­day from 11:00–11:30, to which all are invit­ed to attend.  Also, we hold a Matins (Morn­ing Prayer) ser­vice every Fri­day from 9–9:30 am, to which all are wel­come.

2018 was anoth­er typ­i­cal­ly event­ful year in our Parish!

Mark Flow­erdew facil­i­tat­ed a con­cert to kick off Holy Week in March, shar­ing his appre­ci­at­ed orig­i­nal mate­r­i­al.  Mark & his fam­i­ly have been long-time parish­ioners & vol­un­teers with St. Paul’s.

A warm ‘thank you’ to The Ottawa Children’s Choir for their splen­did per­for­mance, all vol­un­teers for their assis­tance and all 100 atten­dees for facil­i­tat­ing this won­der­ful evening and col­lec­tive­ly gen­er­at­ing $418 for St. Paul’s Out­reach pro­grams in May 2018!

Anoth­er huge ‘thank you’ to those who attended/volunteered at our annu­al fundrais­er THE TULIP TEA this June 2018 where over 100 vis­i­tors came to share in music, food, silent auc­tion and most of all … fel­low­ship!  The net result from this year’s Tulip Tea was $2,546.00. The monies will be applied to St. Paul’s Out­reach Activ­i­ties: 1) The Fish; 2) The Rector’s Dis­cre­tionary Fund; and 3) The Wednes­day Lunch.

And then we had the over 1,100 vis­i­tors that came through our doors for DOORS OPEN 2018 … it was our plea­sure to have you and we hope to see you back soon!  ‘Thank you’ to the vol­un­teers of St. Paul’s who donat­ed their week­end to this also.

Sep­tem­ber 22, at 8:00 pm: St. Paul’s was excit­ed to host “The North” — a jazz quar­tet fea­tur­ing two of Canada’s acclaimed mul­ti-JUNO award win­ning musi­cians — David Braid (piano) and Mike Mur­ley (sax­o­phone) — along with a for­mi­da­ble rhythm sec­tion com­prised of Dan­ish drum­mer Anders Mogensen and Finnish bassist John­ny Aman. (Their record­ing “The North” won the 2018 JUNO Award for Jazz Album of the Year).

Sep­tem­ber 2018 also gave The Zup­pa The­atre Co. an oppor­tu­ni­ty to share their impromp­tu skits for a week at St. Paul’s.

And then there was Octo­ber 13th’s “Choirs For Change”! St. Paul’s very own Jack Ben­net con­duct­ed a choral work by Jason Noble, here at St. Paul’s as part of this year’s Noc­turne Event in Hal­i­fax.

Hap­pi­ly busy’ would be the per­fect short descrip­tion of St. Paul’s!

And check out these events that con­tin­ue to hap­pen every year …

We were again grate­ful to the vol­un­teers of our HOT CHOCOLATE TEAM for host­ing this annu­al offer­ing and also grate­ful to those who vis­it­ed us after the Civ­il Cer­e­mo­ny on The Grand Parade.

See you Christ­mas 2019!
