Re: Worship and Community
Date: March 18, 2020
Dear St. Philip’s Parishioners,
In response to the Covid-19 situation, St. Philip’s physical facilities are closed to worship, meetings, user groups and all gatherings. From Saturday to Wednesday, the Sanctuary and Gardens remain open 9:00 - 6:00 for personal devotion and contemplation during this difficult time.
Liturgical resources are available on the website and will be updated regularly.
A recorded Sunday service will be posted on the website for you to follow along each Sunday morning, using the Order of Service which will be emailed each Friday.
We continue to support each other and share God’s love. It may be a long time before we can gather again. Fellowship is central to St. Philip’s and maintaining our community is important to us all. If you are self-isolating, in quarantine, or just worried about heading to the stores during this difficult time, we can help.
Volunteers are offering phone calls and practical help, like shopping and dog walking, to isolated Parishioners who cannot go out. If you are in isolation and need support, please call St. Philip’s: 604-224-3238 ext. 304 to leave your phone number and a message. A volunteer will return your call in a day or so.
God Bless, and stay well,
Stuart Hallam, Rector
