Welcome to the Area Parish of the St. Lawrence

Did you wake up this morning feeling different? As of today (November 1, 2018) Christ Church Seaway, along with St. John the Evangelist in Lancaster and Trinity Church in Cornwall is part of the new Area Parish of the St. Lawrence.

This new arrangement will allow the three congregations to work more closely together, save money, and retain their own identities as distinct congregations within the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa.

The area parish is being served by two full-time clergy: The Rev. Patrick Stephens serves as incumbent and The Rev. Colin McFarland is the assistant curate. Colin and Patrick are supported by a team of retired and non-stipendiary clergy.

Please pray for this new area parish as we begin this new chapter in the life of our worshiping community.
