Summer Outdoor Services 2018

When the weather gets warm and the sun is shining, everyone wants to be outdoors! For Christ Church Seaway, that means it’s time to turn over the canoe and celebrate the Eucharist outside!

The liturgy is very casual. Bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on and stay for a pot-luck picnic lunch after the service. If you have outside games to play, bring those too!

Christ Church Seaway has four outdoor worship services scheduled for this Summer:

Sunday June 24 – Sunday School and Choir end-of-season celebration!
Sunday July 1 – Canada Day!
Sunday August 12 – Tri-parish joint service for St. Lawrence Day!
Sunday September 9 – Autumn kick-off and welcome back!

Outdoor services begin at 10am.

8am services will continue to be held indoors (no 8am service on August 12).

Everyone is always welcome!

Pentecost Sunday

This Sunday May 20 is the Feast of Pentecost. It marks the conclusion of the Easter season, the coming of the Holy Spirit, and the anniversary of the Church of Christ. Christ Church Seaway will be celebrating the diversity of the people of God with readings from scripture, singing, Holy Eucharist, and… Holy Baptism! Please pray for Benjamin and his family as they prepare for his reception into the household of faith.

Everyone is welcome to be part of the celebration!

 

Baptism, Quilts, Mother’s Day, and The Ascension

Every Mother’s Day, the parish Prayers & Squares quilting group hosts a special fundraiser fellowship hour with coffee, tea, scones, biscuits, and a variety of homemade jams and jellies. It is the main fundraiser for the group and the proceeds help to cover the cost of making quilts for people in the community.

And of course, we will be celebrating the Ascension of Christ into Heaven!

As always, everyone is welcome!
