It is Ascension Sunday, when we remember how Jesus ascended and took the fullness of the human experience into the very nature of God. This is also Copper Sunday* and we will welcome officer-cadets of the Royal Military College. The sanctuary of St. Andrew’s includes a window dedicated in December 1919 bearing the coat of arms of RMC. I have spent time this week pondering what connections there might be between the Ascension of Christ and the Christian life and the exhortation ‘Truth, Duty, Valour’.
Curious? If you are in the area, please join us – you will be warmly welcomed. There is a nursery for infants and a programme for young children during the service. There is free parking on the streets around and in the city surface lot just behind the church.
Have a look at the Order of Service below, and consider each of the announcements a personal invitation to join us in worship, fellowship and service.
*One can read on an archived page of the RMC website that ‘Copper Sunday is a tradition that began at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church circa 1880 when RMC Cadets would take handfuls of copper pennies and throw them towards the offering plate to make as much noise as they could.’
