Ukraine Crisis: Many have been asking about what the church’s response is to the crisis in Ukraine. Here is a link to the PWRDF project. One of the things I like about this particular project is that it is so specific in terms of what our support would be going towards.  Brad

Parish Council Highlights

Parish Council met via Zoom, as has been the practice for the last two years, on April 12, 2022.

Council meets every second Tuesday of the month and these events are shown on the website calendar.

 

Offering

The weekly "Offering" began in April 2020 as a means of " Keeping in Touch" during the covid-19 pandemic. 

Each week readers will hopefully find support, comfort, and joy revealed in topics of their personal journey of faith, life, family, and food. 

Rev. Kate Ann Follwell, Deacon   

This week- Until we meet again

This is the final "offering" from Kate Ann. #92. Thank you for this wonderful gift over the last two years.

 

 

 

Chats with Brad

Tuesday’s discussion chats will take place every  Tuesday on Zoom at 7:00PM. 

This is an opportunity to keep in touch with others, and dig a bit into the weekly readings, in a very relaxed and comfortable forum. 

  Everyone and anyone is welcome.  It is a relaxed and conversational environment, centered on the readings for the upcoming Sunday each week.  People are welcome to ‘pop in’ or ‘pop out’ at their convenience. 

Please email Sandra at office@stthomasbelleville.ca to sign up for either In-person or virtual.

 

Behind The Scene

Since the pandemic started worship services have evolved to on line You Tube, pre-recorded and live video’s.

These are the key players

Music: Rob Martin and choristers:

Sound track is played and recorded using keyboard or organ.

Individually recorded, one to four choral parts are laid on to sound track, mixed and edited.

Music file is now forwarded to Shwetha who adds video and/or text.

Readings:  Recorded in homes, church or outdoors by various readers from the congregation. These too are collected by Shwetha and edited into the service.

Sermons and liturgy:

Produced and delivered by Father Brad from a variety of indoor and outdoor venues.

Editing: All above files are delivered to Shwetha who edits and produces the finished product to upload to YouTube in time for Sunday services.

These services can be accessed directly from the St. Thomas’ YouTube channel or linked from Facebook, or through the St Thomas’ website.

Sandra provides the link to parishioners to facilitate access to upcoming events through email communications with the parish.

For the most part these are the people who have taken the initiative to solve a number of difficult challenges along the way to get us where we are at today. We extend our thanks to all of them.

As we move forward post pandemic, the intention is to continue to provide an on-line presence, accessible by the wider community, those who are shut-in or find attendance difficult.

This opens the door to those who would like to participate in a brand new form of outreach by becoming part of the team who will put these videos together on a regular basis. If you would like more information please let Shwetha or Brad know by calling 613 962-3636 or email them through the "Leadership" page on the St. Thomas’ website.

Kitchen user education

 Please stay current with proper kitchen safety and practices.

The Kitchen Manual can be found as a download in the Resource section of this website. This should be read periodically by all users to keep updated. Any questions should be directed to the church kitchen management team. This is important for insurance purposes.

Education sessions for those requiring supervisor training or those wishing an update will be held as needed. Please give your name to the office and the Kitchen Team will get back to you with the time of the next session. The education only takes about half an hour, but it’s a vital part of our compliance with local health and safety regulations, now that we have been approved to cook and serve food to the general public.

Register for training through the office by phoning 613 962-3636 or emailing office@stthomasbelleville.ca.
