St. Paul's Cathedral has returned to regular office hours and service times for the coming year.  Our many hard working volunteers entertained and educated our parish in various ways over the holidays. 

Beginning with a pageant at 4 pm, Christmas Eve, which was composed by the Sunday School children and directed by a parishioner.  Working with the Sunday School teachers, she pulled together a lively group of young people to present the Nativity Story in their own words.  The 7 & 11 pm Candlelight services were well attended.  Those who attended were grateful for the quiet, reflective time in an otherwise hectic season.

Lessons & Carols greeted the New Year on January lst.  It was lovely to sing those beloved carols one more time before the final farewell to Christmas 2011, and in welcome to the new year.

Busy volunteers worked behind the scenes to ensure anyone in need of pastoral care was tended to.  The Shelter was open Christmas Day and New Year's Eve with a host of dedicated volunteers working hard to give the neighbours a warm place with fellowship and some food.

Thank you to all who make our Church Home a welcoming, warm, hospitable place.
