Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.
At St. Paul’s, we care about each other, and we show and live out this care to others in many ways, through prayer, through visiting the sick and shut-ins, through our Food Bank, and through acts of generosity and kindness.
The Alongsider Prayer group prays for those for whom prayers have been asked. Prayer requests are deposited in a box at the back of the church. Each Sunday prayer requests are prayed at the Prayers of the People for those on our prayer list. We also pray for our community and the world.
If you feel there is someone that would benefit from our praying for them, please let us know.
Please remember to hold confidential, any medical information you are entrusted with.
Our Priest, The Rev. Jo-Anne Billinger visits parishioners and family members to stay in touch, and to take communion to the faithful when the faithful can’t come to us. Caring for others is an important aspect of what we do, as people of God, as we live out our service to others through compassionate pastoral care. We visit at home, in hospital or long term care facilities.
We are now in the process of establishing a Care Team who will have training in caring for others. Serving alongside our clergy, they will respond to those who are in need of a visit, or take communion to those who can no longer get to church, either temporarily or on an ongoing basis. Staying in touch by phone or visits also helps to serve as an ongoing connection to our Parish community.
If you are aware of an individual who would benefit from a visit, please contact The Rev. Jo-Anne Billinger.
Caring for the Larger Community
We care about others in the community through our Food Bank donations and also through contributions to Faithworks, which is operated through the Diocese of Toronto and which supports a large number of ministries in the community, the province and around the world.
