SERVICES AND GATHERINGS THIS WEEK

SUNDAY, June 2, 2024 – 10:00 a.m. – D-Day Commemoration Sunday! 

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

WEDNESDAY – COMPLINE – 9:15 p.m. Note the time change until the end of May!

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.
