Happy Easter!

In light of the ongoing pandemic and in keeping with the current intensified efforts to reduce the spread of the virus in the Province of Alberta, the City of Edmonton, and the Anglican Diocese of Edmonton, all services are currently online only. This certainly brings home the sadness and loss of these times, and yet it also might -- I hope and pray -- afford us rich and meaningful reflections and connections through our shared faith, even if by online means only. We can and will continue to adapt to this! Just as the Hebrew prophet Jeremiah reminds the people of God when scattered in exile to "seek the welfare of the city" where they find themselves, and to  "pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare" (Jeremiah 29:7), and just as Jesus reminds us that "the sabbath was made for humankind, and not humankind for the sabbath" (Mark 2:27), so we will continue to care for our wider community by praying and reflecting in ways that put no one at unnecessary risk, and yet still connect us in together in the Faith, Hope, and Love we share in Christ.

So: you are invited to join Morning Prayer by Zoom at 10am Sundays.  If you would like to join, just send a quick email to  office@stmatthiasedmonton.ca to get the Zoom link ... otherwise, you'll find the Zoom services edited and posted on the front page of our website and on our facebook pages sometime on Sunday afternoons.

Until we meet again ... God be with you!
