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.

ALTAR FLOWERS - 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 since we deliver flowers from the altar to them. Please consider providing flowers at an upcoming service over the next few months. Now that we are in the season of gardening some of these flowers could be flowers from your garden! For more information, please contact the office 905-627-1424 or

After nearly 3 years of providing takeaway meals to people living with food insecurities, I am pleased to announce that we are returning to opening our doors for our community guests to come in, sit down, and enjoy a healthy, hot meal with their friends and family. There are 5 churches providing these meals, and St. James is responsible for providing meals on the 4th Monday of every month and providing a serving place on the 5th Mondays. One job is helping to set tables with placemats, cutlery, glasses, etc. Another is to help cook and prepare food and serve if you like. There is also need for volunteers to clean up, meaning washing dishes and pans and putting them away and generally cleaning the kitchen.If you have any time between 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. and are interested in volunteering to do one or more of these jobs, please contact

the office 905-627-1424 or
