Worship

 When are our church services?

Worship service is on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. As the vaccination rates increase and Covid cases decline our Diocese has moved to the Amber Stage. The latest “In this Together” document is found here. This means we are now permitted to resume in-person worship as of Sunday July 11 with pandemic protocols similar to what we observed last fall with masks and distancing. So we will offer in-person worship for those who feel comfortable with plans to record the service. There are capacity limits on our services so let me know if you plan to attend. Hope to see you in-person on Sunday. 

To confirm attendance on Sunday contact us at: smmchurchchelsea2021@gmail.com

A video of the service is recorded and uploaded on YouTube to the St. Mary Magdalene Anglican Church YouTube Account, for those who cannot attend in-person worship. 

If you would like to be added to the SMM email list for notices and updates regarding worship services, please email The Reverend Cathy Davis at: cathyadavis@gmail.com

SMM – Church Sunday, 10am

Hello SMM family and friends

Church on Sunday will be 10am at the church as we joyfully and carefully gather for in-person worship. We continue to observe the protocols of our Diocese so wear your mask and keep your distance. Please let me know of any needs or concerns you would like included in the Sunday prayers. The service outline and children’s page are available on the Sunday Service and Children’s Sunday School pages. We are under capacity limits so registering is recommended although not necessary as our summer numbers tend to be low.

On August 3rd our diocese will be moving to ‘Yellow’ which means we will be permitted to sing behind our masks and receive the wine at communion. You may not feel comfortable receiving the wine so please know that receiving only the bread is just fine and sufficient for full communion. Check out the latest “In This Together version 3.2” and also an article by Rev Michael Garner “The Common Cup and SARS-CoV-2 Infection Risk”. at https://www.ottawa.anglican.ca/index.php/covid-19

Be safe as you enjoy the summer.

SMM – In Person Worship Sunday July 11, 10 am

This Sunday we will be back in the church building for our first in-person worship service since Nov 22, 2020. Zoom worship was great but it will be so nice to be in the church with one another again. The service outline and children’s page are below for your information. A recording of the service is uploaded to our YouTube channel.

Plans for our outdoor worship on July 18th with Bishop Shane Parker continue. Albert Dumont, Algonquin Advisor to the Bishop and Ottawa’s Poet Laureate, will also be with us as. To assist with our planning please let me know by Tuesday July 13 if you would like to attend.

Thanks to all who have already registered. For the outdoor service you will still need your mask and if you could bring a lawn chair and hand sanitizer that would be good.

Refer to the below latest version of our Diocesan Pandemic Plan “In This Together” We are currently in the Amber Stage.

Sunday Worship Jul 4, 2021 10:00 AM Eastern Time

The service outline and children’s page for July 4 2021 are below.

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.
