A Letter from Rev. Peggy McDonagh:

Here is the weekly email with information regarding Sunday worship.   

Announcement: 

  • Please join us for the zoom Foundation AGM and St. David’s AGM on November 22 following worship. 

This Sunday is the final week of the series “Beguiled by Beauty.”  This series has invited us to awaken to the beauty and goodness of life, especially in these challenging times and it has encouraged us to uphold in our daily life a contemplative practice of bringing us again and again into awareness of the beauty of our being, of others, and of all created life.  During these difficult and disruptive times, how important it is to remember that we are unconditionally loved and cherished by the Holy One.  

WORSHIP PREPARATION A candle to light during worship. I’ve attached the worship folder for those who wish to follow along. (See MINISTRIES/ WORSHIP for the Worship Folder

If you wish to have a conversation and reach out, you are certainly invited to call either Debbie Stockdale or myself.  I remind you of the Chat gatherings that take place on Mondays from 11 – noon and Wednesdays from 1 – 2.

Remember to print the worship folder so you can follow along most easily. You will find it as a file attachment on the MINISTRIES/Worship Page.

COVID-19 has made a difference in our lives, for sure, but our St. David's community remains such an important part of our week. We last met as a congregation on March 15, 2020. Plans for returning continue to be a work in progress. Stay tuned!! If you have had a moment, we encourage to complete the survey received last week to help us with our planning for the future.  

ACTS MINISTRY MONDAY NIGHT BOOK STUDY: This Autumn, our group has met on Zoom for Monday Night Study at 7:00PM to 8:30PM (90 minutes). Our Final online session is on Monday, November 23, 2020.
