Lent is a season of resorting priorities in life.
What is most important in our lives?
What roadblocks stop us from living out the
things we value most in our lives?
How do we clear those roadblocks?
Lent helps us prepare to walk with Jesus
through the events of Holy Week,
his confrontation with the powers of
the Roman Empire, his offering of himself on the Cross,
and his death.
Lent awakens us so that we can be truly open
to celebrate the resurrection with joy.
Worship at St. Clement's
The main worship on Sunday mornings at 9:45 a.m. is a contemporary eucharist or holy communion in the Anglican style. We sing a lively mixture of new and traditional favourite hymns that fit the theme of the bible texts for the day. Our sermons are based on the Bible text and applies to how we live today. We are relaxed, not formal. We work to have worship give voice to our reverent praise of God, and to our human struggles as we respond to a loving God.
On the First Sunday of the month, the 8:00 a.m. Sunday morning is a quiet service using the traditional Anglican Service of the Book of Common Prayer.
If you would like to meet with Lynne McNaughton, priest at St. Clements,

WORSHIP IS SUNDAY MORNING AT 9:45 a.m.
We draw a holy comma in rushed and busy lives.
We follow down old scripture words
the journey to Jerusalem.
We stumble into prayer again and whisper soft
the dearest, fearest of our thoughts.
Last year's palms crumble into ashes.
Last year's peace weeps into war.
We sing of Gethsemane amid new tears, new bleeding.
The screaming bombs burn crosses in our hearts -
this too is God's story.
Lent comes, but also Ramadan's fast
Passover's freedom memory, Easter's crazy contradiction.
Faith is born of prayer and sings with courage,
while all the children of the earth
shelter in the wings of God awaiting our embrace.
(Written by Maren C Tirabassi, in 1991 during the USA conflict with Iraqi).
There's a “Parent's Room” at the back of the church where you can see and hear the service.
Please look at our latest calendar to see our upcoming events. Lots happening!
