At St. Clement's, people from all walks of life support each each spiritually and socially so that we might better love God and our neighbour. A short introduction to our Anglican approach to faith and belief is right here. Would you like information about baptisms, weddings, funerals or memorial services? Then we invite you to visit our Celebrating Milestones page.
Our priest and deacon welcome general inquiries via their shared inbox right here, and individual contact information for both our clergy and lay leaders is on this page. Please click here for some basic information to help first-time visitors. We hope to meet you soon!
Over the course of the pandemic, I have noticed how my iPhone library of "most frequently used" emojis has shifted. In those initial weeks of spring 2020, my "most used" bank of smiley faces and joke-y images receded somewhat, with sad faces and shocked "eeeek, what's happening!" faces taking their place in texts and emails more often. The smiley faces pulled into the lead again as times improved in our local context, but the "eek!" faces would make a resurgence when the case counts spiked again or society dealt with other hard realities.
Throughout it all, though, the red heart emoji kept its #1 position as the "go to" image I most often reached for in hard times and good times alike. When love is present - love for God, love for neighbour - there is always reason for gratitude and hope.
"...Even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is as bright as the day, for darkness is as light to you." Psalm 139:12
