Curtis

Curtis Carrier


Curtis has been coming to St. Peter’s since 2006. A couple of years later, after slacking off being in church Curtis heard a distinct voice saying “Go back to church!” When he did, he felt the presence of God who ignited a fire within him and led him to serve in ways in which he excels. God equips the called!

We Are Pleased To Announce

"The new Rector of St. Peter’s is the Reverend Dr. Norbert Haukenfrers and he joins the church on September 15th. Currently he is Rector of St. David’s Anglican Church, Prince Albert, Saskatchewan where he has been since 2005. He is also an Archdeacon of the Diocese of Saskatchewan.

As the shepherd and equipper of the body he expects to encourage, mentor, assist and facilitate."

Church Season

The Liturgical Season Of Ordinary Time

 ordinary time copy

Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.   John 4:35 NIV

Christ has ascended, and until He returns...

The rest of the year following Epiphany and Pentecost is known as Ordinary Time. Rather than meaning "common" or "mundane," this term comes from the word "ordinal," which simply means counted time (First Sunday after Trinity, etc.), which is probably a better way to think of this time of the year.

In Common Worship, the first section of Ordinary Time starts on the day after Candlemass ( February 2nd) and ends on Shrove Tuesday, the day before Lent. Ordinary Time resumes after Pentecost and always begins with Trinity Sunday and ends with Christ the King Sunday (last Sunday before the beginning of Advent).

The season of The Sundays after Trinity usually focuses on the evangelical mission of the church to the world and its responsibility in carrying out that mission of proclamation.

The Liturgical colour for Ordinary Time is dark green, although other shades of green are commonly used. Green has traditionally been associated with new life and growth.

Countdown To Advent

What You Want To Know

 

Author: Marion Bowen

This All Age Service was inclusive meaning children stayed for the entire service and were encouraged to participate in all the fun activities.  Worship songs were geared to  participation with mouth/foot/hand actions. Rubbing our tummies, raising our hands and stomping our feet got us all ready for more.

Passover2

 

On Thursday March 29, we celebrated a Passover Meal as a church body. It was a huge success. We ate together, sang together and celebrated a traditional Passover meal. The traditional food was substituted with items that are easily obtained in this area of the world, but the importance of them was not lessened as a result. I was particularly touched to be able to serve communion to my table-mates and enjoy their company as we remembered Jesus last night with his

My dear, dear Family in Christ Jesus,

Adaptedfrom Romans 1:1-7 

Timothy, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God— the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures regarding his Son, who as to his earthly life was a descendant of David, and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.
