The video will go live at 10am, so we can all worship together at the same time. If you miss the 10am mark you can still watch the video at any time throughout the day!

Victoria—March 16, 2020  Bishop Logan McMenamie has ordered all churches in the diocese closed for all public use, including worship, for sixty (60) days effective immediately. 

"We know churches are places of refuge, celebration and commemoration for folks from all walks of life, but the church is more than just its buildings. We are working collaboratively across our region to find creative ways to remain pastorally present to people at a time when the assurance offered in the life of faith is so critical. At the same time however, we take seriously the government's call on jurisdictions across the country to strengthen their proactive responses to contain and slow the spread of this disease. This is one way we can do our part to show our care and concern for the most vulnerable in our communities," says McMenamie.

The closure includes all public worship and facility rentals with the exception of daycare facilities being operated on church property. This is subject to change as new information becomes available.

Our St. Paul church office is open for telephone and email contact, Monday to Friday 9 am to 12 noon. We are not able to receive visitors in person at this time.
