Christmas Gift for Children
Last year’s campaign of support for the Family & Children’s Services of the Waterloo Region was a great success. We helped the young children in our region who were vulnerable and wishing for support. Let’s do it again!
There are red envelopes for you to use to donate to them through St. Paul’s. These will be near the entrance where our Handouts are placed and will avoid any confusion between these and our yellow envelope Offerings. Any cheques should be payable to St. Paul’s and we will forward that money to them on behalf of our church. Your offering will be included in your year-end tax receipt. The children say, Thank you!

Church Services over the Holidays
Christmas Eve’s service is 8:00 pm at St. Paul’s this year – the early service. St. Peter’s will be hosting the late service at 10:00 pm. (That’s Saturday, December 24… )
No service will be held on Sunday, December 25 this year at either of our two churches.
New Year’s Day is a Sunday this year. A Joint Service will be held at St. Paul’s at 11:00 am January 1, 2023. (You can sleep in… )
Annual Meeting – 2023
Mark your calendars! Our Annual Meeting will be held on January 29, 2023 after 11:00 am Service. Yes, January, not February! Reports will be provided beforehand and your input is both needed and greatly appreciated. See you then! (We need more Council members…)
Covid update from Eastern Synod
“With the ongoing circulation of COVID-19, the rise in respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), as well as influenza we need to ensure that our worshipping practices are as safe as possible.”
Therefore, the Eastern Synod recommends you wear a “well-fitting mask during in-person worship as well as during all indoor social events.” A mask will protect you and fellow members but will not be mandatory at St. Paul’s – your choice.
