From the Dean ....

"May you live in interesting times" is an English expression that purports to be a translation of a traditional Chinese curse. ... Despite being so common in English as to be known as the "Chinese curse", the saying is apocryphal, and no actual Chinese source has ever been produced.  Despite its dubious origin, these words can certainly be applied to the world in which we find ourselves today.  I suspect that if anyone had told us on January 1st what the year 2020 would hold, we would have thought them ill-informed… and yet, here we are, still in isolation, albeit a relaxed form of isolation in comparison to what we have seen over these past few weeks.  We have been officially “out of the church” since Sunday, March 15th meaning that we have missed the final Sundays of Lent, the entirety of Holy Week, all of the Easter season and with a return date of sometime after Labour Day weekend, well over half of Pentecost.  Which is to say that while we have been “out of the Church’, we have still “been” Church, in large part due to the efforts of John Sproule, Brian Elliott and Christopher Sadler who have worked tirelessly to produce the worship videos and recitals each and every week.  To Catharine and Ian Sadler for the gift of music both for Sunday worship as well as Tuesday recitals, Deacon Pat Henderson and Rev. Michael DeKay who have shared with me in the leading of Sunday worship as well as our team of lectors and intercessors, we have been truly blessed.  The St. Paul’s community has also been blessed by the formation of a new telephone ministry under the direction of Rev. Michael, our Vicar.  This group of some 15-20 callers, in tandem with our card ministry, our various social media platforms, and our web site, have been intentionally connected to our St. Paul’s family during this time, which we pray will continue once we have returned to whatever our new patterns will be. To the Wardens and staff who continue to keep St. Paul’s moving forward, we are blessed by the ministry you offer and look forward to the time when we can worship together again, albeit in new ways which we will blend with some of our past traditions.  Please continue to refer to our web site and Facebook page for regular updates, both from the Diocese as well as the Cathedral as we continue to be actively planning on a return to in-person worship as soon as it is safe to do so.
 
If this is your first visit, it is a joy to welcome you to our parish web site. Perhaps you are one of those who are looking to find the presence of God in your own life journey, a search that in the midst the noise and confusion of our age, can at times seem overwhelming. Maybe we can be of some assistance. Contained within this site are examples of the ministry that we share as the Cathedral Church of St. Paul’s, London Ontario. We enjoy a wonderful mix of young and old, those who are new to the faith, as well as those who are mature Christians. In the midst of a wonderful blend of personalities comes the blessing of a variety of gifts and ministries. May the information you find here encourage you in your own faith journeys.
 
We invite you to come and make your spiritual home with us at St. Paul’s, but pray that wherever you are, you will find a Christian community where you can deepen your faith, and put your talents and gifts to work. Wherever you are, your prayers for the ministry of the people of our parish are appreciated. 
 
We are thankful for all who give of themselves in the ministry of the church and for their commitment to carry out the commission that our Lord gave to us all.  We are also thankful that you have visited our website and invite you to come and get to know us better.

Traditional Worship

The rich history of the Anglican Church of Canada is celebrated through liturgy and music in the beautiful setting of St. Paul’s Cathedral.  The Cathedral is the oldest church in the city of London, Canada, and the faithful have worshipped as part of this community for almost 200 years, establishing a congregation that has endured and flourished.  Generations have wrestled with human issues, celebrated life’s events, reached out to others and praised God in this same sacred space, providing profound continuity in the expression of faith. 
“GLORY be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.”

Progressive Values

Members of the congregation of St. Paul’s Cathedral are inclusive and accepting, with open minds and open hearts. The doors of St. Paul’s are open to those in need, either for spiritual support or for physical sustenance, through the works of the St Paul’s Social Services Food Bank, The Fellowship Centre, and our Pastoral care team. We strive to move ever forward in faith, and to develop a more well-rounded spirituality as we continually recognize and appreciate our fellow citizens’ and parishioners’ unique perspectives, talents and needs.
“GLORY to God, whose power working in us can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine: Glory to God from generation to generation, in the Church, and in Christ Jesus, now and forever. Amen.”

Inspiring Communities

The Clergy and congregation of St. Paul’s are committed to meeting people where they are on their faith journey, walking and working with one another towards the promise of God’s eternal kingdom.  St. Paul’s offers many opportunities to connect with others, building friendships and contributing to the sense of community.  We encourage each other to see God’s grace in our present situations, and acknowledge each person’s gifts and talents which are a blessing to others.
“THE grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Ghost, be with us all evermore. Amen.”
