Getting Connected in 2023
Registration closes on Wednesday, January 11th at noon.
Do you remember the very first time you walked through the doors of St. Clement’s? What were your first impressions? And what made you want to come back again? These were some of the questions that formed the basis of lively and thoughtful conversations in our Getting Connected series this fall. Over the course of three Tuesday evenings, participants gathered to reflect on Scripture passages and to share about our paths to St. Clement’s. It was a truly global group hailing from China, Brazil, Mexico, the U.S. and Canada. We marveled at how we had all found St. Clement’s from such different places and such diverse faith journeys–and even different modes of engaging in worship (i.e., online and in-person).
Each week we were joined by some longer-term parishioners who shared their own experiences of becoming more deeply connected to St. Clement’s through different ministries that engaged their particular gifts. Entertainment was provided by our youngest member (one-year old Leslie) who played and shared her delight in discovering the space and meeting new people. We could feel the Holy Spirit amongst us, building and strengthening our community.
The next Getting Connected series will run on Tuesdays from 7-8 pm on January 17, 24 and 31. If you would like to volunteer to help host these evenings, please contact Catherine Nicholson at email@example.com. If you are new to St Clement’s, or if you’ve been attending for a while and would like to learn more about our community, please click here to sign up or scan the QR code on the poster to let us know you’d like to join in our next round of conversations.
“We have been absolutely inspired by the sermons and the choir as much as by the architectural beauty every time we attend a service. The camaraderie and warmth, especially the tolerance of and love for Leslie, let us forget that Canada is a cold place. We are happy we came to Canada and St. Clements.”
