SMM – Re-opening News

As the vaccination rates increase and Covid cases decline our Diocese is moving to the Amber Stage on Tuesday from the Red closed stage. The latest “In this Together” document is attached. This means we are now permitted to resume in-person worship as of next Sunday July 11 with pandemic protocols similar to what we observed last fall with masks and distancing. So we will offer in-person worship on July 11 for those who feel comfortable with plans to record the service. We are still planning an outdoor celebration for July 18th when the Bishop will be with us but now if it rains we will be able to worship in the church. There are capacity limits on our services so let me know if you plan to attend. Hope to see you on Zoom tomorrow and in-person on the 11th and 18th.

July 4 10 am on Zoom
July 11 10 am at the church

Fighting Climate Change – New Electric Furnaces

On April 26, 2021, St Mary Magdalene Church received a grant of $7,824.00 from the Québec Government program “Chauffez Vert”, administered by  Transition énergétique Québec. This financial assistance was used to offset the cost of replacing SMM’s oil-burning furnaces with electric furnaces. Thanks to the program “Chauffez vert”, SMM is no longer using fossil fuels to heat both the church sacristy and hall.


St Mary Magdalene Church invites you to join in special services, Zoom coffee hour, Vestry meetings and other events, gatherings and meetings.

Please check this website or the SMM Facebook page, as most in-person events are postponed or are held online, due to COVID-19.
