Christmas Eve Festival Choir— It's that time of year again where we all can raise our voices and proclaim the Glory of God at a High Feast. We'd love to have you join us again, or
for the first time, in the Festival Choir. We'll be rehearsing on Thursdays from 7:45 - 8:30 PM, and No experience required! Just listen to your part of the recording (given to you) and sing with gusto. See the Music Director, Joe, if you wish to join in the Christmas Eve fun.

The spirit of the season—Don't forget our Christmas season outreach this year. We are supporting PWRDF with cash donations and collecting small sized toiletries and personal care items for the homeless in Oakville and Hamilton. On behalf of the Outreach Committee, thank you for your generosity. 
Need a mid-week boost? Join us each Wednesday at 10:00am for an intimate Eucharist service in the choir stalls, followed by refreshments and fellowship.​

Announcements  
Wednesday morning Advent study — Please join us for this year's Advent program, held the first three Wednesdays in Advent: December 5, 12, and 19. Following our 10:00 am Eucharist which lasts about 30 minutes, we will adjourn to the Feeney Room for refreshments, fellowship and about half an hour of conversation. We will be focusing on Advent, not surprisingly - what does Advent mean, what are some Advent customs, and how can we live a more spiritual Advent life full of anticipation and hope? 

Men’s Group— The Epiphany Men’s Group is celebrating Christmas early this year! Join them on Saturday, December 8 at 8:30am for a festive breakfast at El Spero restaurant on Lakeshore Road.

Christmas memorial flowers — Would you like to contribute to the church’s festive floral display and honour a loved one this Christmas season? Pick up a memorial flowers envelope in your pew on Sunday or contact the church office.






























Weekly message from the Interim Pastor









Happy Advent! This Sunday we begin the Season of Advent, a sacred time of preparation and anticipation. Much of the world began Christmas weeks ago and will usher it out quickly after December 25. As Anglicans we are blessed to have this wonderful interlude, knowing that Christmas doesn't begin until Christmas Eve and continues for 12 days, culminating in the Feast of the Epiphany. On Sunday we will explore the meaning of Advent and for what we are preparing. See you in Church!​



Blessings,
Lou+
