Over the past two years, members of our congregation and our families have gone ahead of us. Many of us were unable to gather to give God thanks, or to gather with limitations of location and numbers. 

St. Andrew’s held a service on Saturday April 9 to look back, bring our gratitude to God, and be strengthened by God’s promises. It was a very moving hour.

The Order of Service is found below, and the recording is found at

Praying for UkraineThe Presbyterian Church in Canada joins in prayer with our partners in Ukraine as they and all around them are faced with war, danger and uncertainty. We pray for safety and peace, comfort for those now in mourning, and humanitarian aid for all in need.

God and Lord of the Powers, and Maker of all creation;
God of justice, and Lover and Maker of peace,
we are distressed by the violence and the threats of violence and destruction in the world, and especially by acts of war and brutality that people experience in Ukraine.
In solidarity with them, we pray for those
who are suffering and in danger,
who live in fear and anxiety,
who fear what tomorrow will bring,
who are anxious for their lives and the lives of those they love and care for, and
who mourn the dead.
We pray that
those with power over war will lay down weapons,
and that those who have power to accomplish peace
will have wisdom and compassion.
God of Grace, the Giver of Life,
send your Comforter, the Spirit of Truth,
who is everywhere present and fills all things,
to sustain the hope of all those who seek justice and peace and
to inspire the leaders of nations to do what is right.
Glory to you, O God,
Creator, Christ and Holy Spirit,
now and forever;
in the strong name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace, we pray.

“The World Council of Churches denounces any and every use of deadly armed force to resolve disputes that could be resolved by dialogue. We firmly believe that dialogue—based on the principles of international law and respect for established national borders—was and is the proper path for the resolution of tensions surrounding Ukraine. We call for an immediate end to the current armed hostilities, and for the protection of all human lives and communities threatened by this violence. We urge all member churches and all people of good will around the world to join us in prayer for peace for the people of Ukraine and the region.”
—The Rev. Prof. Dr Ioan Sauca, Acting General Secretary, World Council of Churches
