ST. MARY'S, KIRKLAND
Be the Change, Change the World
Be a part of that change. Find us at 75 Kirkland Blvd. Kirkland, QC. We gather on Sundays at 8h30 and 10h00.
From wherever we are on our path, we are a community open to worshipping God, learning and experiencing who He is, letting him change us as individuals and as a community, and living out that change in care for others and the world.
If you are interested, it would be great to meet you. Feel free to message, email or call and we will be happy to talk, or check out the Facebook page from the link above for current news.
At our Sunday worship, we have a quiet, traditional 8:30 service with music and a 10:00 service with age appropriate kids program and contemporary music led by the music director, Marie Landry.
Can’t make it to church this week but would still like some spiritual content? The Sunday sermon is posted weekly! (Of course, this does not replace the joy of meeting together! But it might just give you a few ideas for this week...)
There are times when we come together for meals or activities (often with a social justice theme), and small groups for prayer, study, or just to get together.
Check out the Facebook page for the latest information on what's going on.
VIRTUAL ST MARYS
St Mary's is a vital part of the life of our members, but what of those who can no longer attend regularly - perhaps for health reasons? Of course, folks stay in touch but we're going to start experimenting with other ways that St Mary's can help being in contact with God and each other.
So, our Sunday morning services are livestreamed on the facebook page (the link's at the top of the website)
And we're starting a series of Podcasts, christian chats between Richard Hamby and our Rector Emeritus, Lorne Tardy. Listen in!
