SERVICES AND GATHERINGS IN THE SEASON OF LENT!
SUNDAY, March 19th, 2023 – 10:00 a.m. 4th Sunday in LENT. We hope to see you in person. If you are unable to attend, the service is live streamed. For links to the service and the order of service please visit St. James at: stjamesdundas.ca or the St. James Facebook page.
WEDNESDAY – COMPLINE – 8.30 p.m. Compline is a short service of night prayer. The heart of Compline is the recitation of several psalms. There is a short reading from scripture, intercession, and time for reflection. It is a beautiful way to close out an active day. Compline is offered by St. James’ through Facebook to bring the community together. If you cannot join live, the service is available afterwards on St. James’ Facebook channel.

Please consider providing flowers at an upcoming service over the next few months. Contact the office at email@example.com or 905-627-1424
