The Ontario Provincial Government announced on Monday June 8th that restrictions preventing people from gathering for worship since March 22nd would be lifted as of Friday June 12th.
The Session of St. Andrew’s has decided to take an approach to opening that would exercise and abundance of caution. We plan to delay in person worship until a yet to be determined date in September. In the meantime the Parish Health Ministry Team will take the lead in planning for our re-opening, making sure all the necessary COVID-19 health and safety protocols are in place so that people can attend as safely as possible. Online services will continue throughout the summer and even once the church is re-opened. Click her for details.
