From the Dean ....

 Thomas said to him, “Lord we do not know where you are going, how can we know the way?"            
John 14:6

Have you ever been asked to give directions to a location which you frequent regularly, and that you go to almost automatically?  I regularly receive calls from people who are visiting the church, either for a Sunday service, a wedding or a funeral, all of whom want to know where we are and how best to get here.   And quite often, I must confess, I make a compete mess of the directions which I give… I know the route that I take, but it may not be the easiest or most direct route for others, depending on where they are coming from.
 
In John’s gospel, Jesus is reassuring the disciples that even though he will be with them “only a little longer”, he is going to prepare a place for each of them: Thomas, Peter, Philip, James, the saints through the ages, and yes, even you and I.  Thomas echoes our sentiments when he asks Jesus, how do we get there, “How can we know the way?”  Our life journeys bring us to faith from many different paths and circumstances, and at times, we can become confused, looking for signs or directions along the way.  In his reply to Thomas, Jesus makes what is perhaps the most important claim, the most significant assurance that we hear in all of scripture: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.”  In this statement, Jesus doesn’t offer a description (it’s across the street from the Grand Theatre), nor does he give directions (take Queen’s Ave all the way to)… he says “I am the way”… and I will take you if you will walk with me.
 
Our Lenten time affords us the opportunity to consider the ways in which Jesus invites us to walk with him, and through this walk, to know the fullness of God’s love by way of the cross and the resurrection… a path which leads to the Father and the glory of eternal life.  At times, we are like Thomas, wondering, wandering, at times unsure, coming from different paths… but our trust and faith in Jesus Christ continues to be for us life-giving.
 
As we journey through these next few sacred days, days that are central to our faith, let us hear anew and accept the invitation to walk with the One who is The Way, and The Truth, and the Life…
 
If this is your first visit, it is a joy to welcome you to our Cathedral web site. Perhaps you are looking to find the presence of God in your own life journey, a search that in the midst of 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. 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 journey. 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 explore what it is that God is calling you to.  Wherever you are, your prayers for the ministry of the people of St. Paul’s Cathedral are appreciated, and know that you will be in ours.

  We are thankful for the people of St. Paul’s, who offer their gifts for the ministry of the church as we seek to live out the commission that our Lord gave to us all, and we are thankful that you have visited us here… we wish you every blessing as you continue your journey in faith. 

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.”
