Welcome to the Parish of March and our website.

Welcome to the Parish of March!

 

On September 13th, 2020 we resumed in-person services at St John's at 10:30 am, with Covid-19 safety protocols. This has been suspended until further notice, as of December 26th.

Join us in a virtual meeting for worship, Sundays at 10 am. You should be able to meet with the others who are part of the worship, up to 100 people.  We will worship at 10 am so you can try to get on a few moments before the meeting starts.  To do that you enter this week's URL, found in the weekly email or by request through forwardmarch@sympatico.ca, into your computer and it should take you to the Zoom site.  Follow the online instructions to download and install the software, or get the Zoom app on your tablet.  This gives us a 30 minute free meeting time in order to do our morning prayer.

We also have a podcast site for Homilies  http://stjohnskanatanorth.podbean.com/ 

For the duration of the pandemic the community hospitals have closed their doors to community volunteer clergy for safety reasons due to the crisis of the pandemic. If a visit is required or requested,  please ask for the in Hospital Spiritual Care visitor to pay a visit.  Holy Communion is not possible for anyone at this time as the Bishops have suspended the sharing of communion for community safety.  However, if a someone is hospitalized, please do contact the Parish Office. 

Please note that pastoral liturgies such as baptisms and funerals are suspended until the pandemic has subsided.  Graveside burials are permitted where necessary, but with immediate family only and physical distancing. Please contact the Parish Office with questions. Memorial services, full funerals, and baptisms will be arranged and resumed once the pandemic has subsided.

All parish groups, bible studies, prayer groups etc. which bring people together, are also suspended until we receive further instructions.  

This situation is fluid and changes hourly. We will do our best to keep you all informed. 

Be well.
