The Office will close at 1 pm, Thursday, June 30th for the long weekend, and will re-open at 10 am Wednesday, July 6th. For that week, the office will be on shorter hours, and will be open from 10 am to noon.

The following week, beginning July 11th, the floor is being refinished and the building will be closed & sealed completely for the week. There will be no Wednesday, Holy Communion July 13th as a result. The office will re-open at 10 am, July 19th. However, the hall will remain sealed and no one is allowed into that room until July 24th.

The Voice Mail will be monitored, so leave a message with explicit details for a call back. We thank you for your patience.

As always, summer is slow for activities in the church, so our Maintenance crew takes this time to spruce up the building. The floors in the basement, kitchen, sacristy, and entrance to the Parish hall will be washed and waxed June 30th and therefore closed to traffic until Sunday, July 3rd.

Then a week later a major floor job will be done, requiring complete closure of the entire building from July 11 to 17th. Therefore, there will be no Wednesday Holy Communion service on July 13th.

The building will re-open to occupancy July 17th, but the Parish Hall remains sealed until July 24th. The Parish Hall floor is well used, and we want the finish to be solid. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Isn't it a beautiful font. Much discussion and thought went into replacing the old font. The group wanted something lighter, and pored over volumes with a variety of models. Finally, the choice of the bowl came down to this one which was designed by Martha Sturdy Designs in Vancouver.

Then it was down to the supporting structure. St. Paul's is truly blessed with a brilliant wood worker. Using wood salvaged from furnishings no longer being used, Ivan designed and manufactured this gorgeous base.

St. Paul's recently installed a new Baptismal font.

The "retired" font has found a new home in the Community Garden in Brocklehurst.
