WEDNESDAY – COMPLINE – 8.30 p.m. Compline is a short service of night prayer. The heart of Compline is the recitation of several psalms.

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.

Flowers for the Altar
Giving altar flowers for a Sunday service is a special way to remember a loved one, give thanks for the blessings in your life, and brighten the lives of “shut-ins” and parishioners who are unwell. Please consider providing flowers at an upcoming service over the next few months. Contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 905-627-1424
