From the Dean ....

 

 “Where is the child who has been born King of the Jews? For we observed his
star at its rising and have come to pay him homage.” Matthew 2:2


I recall as a child making snow angels… I still remember laying on my back on those cold winter nights, gazing up into the darkness of the night sky with thousands of stars twinkling back at me, and the touch of the softly falling snow slightly stinging my face in the quietness of a December evening.  It sounds very poetic, doesn’t it… perhaps even a little “Charlie Brown”ish. 
 
        This time of year awakens the poet that is within each of us, as we make ready to celebrate anew the birth of our Lord and Saviour.  And despite the busyness of December with its frantic pace- shopping, entertaining, baking, partying- our thoughts are often drawn back to those treasured Christmas memories, those Hallmark or Kodak-like moments which are forever captured in our remembering. 
 
        For many of us, these memories are the “stars” which we search for, the experiences we treasure.  They are the touchstones of our lives, those things which bring great joy and for which we are thankful: memories of family gatherings, of Christmas pageants at school and church, Christmas caroling with friends, decorating the tree.
 
        And not unlike the Magi who followed that star, believing in God’s promise to be present with them, we too, often know God’s presence in the gathering of loved ones, both at happy times as well as sad.  The promise of an incarnate Lord is no less tangible for us today than it was for those wise ones 2000 years ago.
 
If this is your first visit, it is a joy to welcome you to our Cathedral web site. Perhaps you are looking to find the presence of God in your own life journey, a search that in the midst of the noise and confusion of our age, can at times seem overwhelming. Maybe we can be of some assistance. Contained within this site are examples of the ministry that we share as the cathedral church of St. Paul’s. We enjoy a wonderful mix of young and old, those who are new to the faith, as well as those who are mature Christians. In the midst of a wonderful blend of personalities comes the blessing of a variety of gifts and ministries. May the information you find here encourage you in your own faith journey. We invite you to come and make your spiritual home with us at St. Paul’s, but pray that wherever you are, you will find a Christian community where you can deepen your faith, and explore what it is that God is calling you to.  Wherever you are, your prayers for the ministry of the people of St. Paul’s Cathedral are appreciated, and know that you will be in ours.

  We are thankful for the people of St. Paul’s, who offer their gifts for the ministry of the church as we seek to live out the commission that our Lord gave to us all, and we are thankful that you have visited us here… we wish you every blessing as you continue your journey in faith. 

Traditional Worship

The rich history of the Anglican Church of Canada is celebrated through liturgy and music in the beautiful setting of St. Paul’s Cathedral.  The Cathedral is the oldest church in the city of London, Canada, and the faithful have worshipped as part of this community for almost 200 years, establishing a congregation that has endured and flourished.  Generations have wrestled with human issues, celebrated life’s events, reached out to others and praised God in this same sacred space, providing profound continuity in the expression of faith. 
“GLORY be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.”

Progressive Values

Members of the congregation of St. Paul’s Cathedral are inclusive and accepting, with open minds and open hearts. The doors of St. Paul’s are open to those in need, either for spiritual support or for physical sustenance, through the works of the St Paul’s Social Services Food Bank, The Fellowship Centre, and our Pastoral care team. We strive to move ever forward in faith, and to develop a more well-rounded spirituality as we continually recognize and appreciate our fellow citizens’ and parishioners’ unique perspectives, talents and needs.
“GLORY to God, whose power working in us can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine: Glory to God from generation to generation, in the Church, and in Christ Jesus, now and forever. Amen.”

Inspiring Communities

The Clergy and congregation of St. Paul’s are committed to meeting people where they are on their faith journey, walking and working with one another towards the promise of God’s eternal kingdom.  St. Paul’s offers many opportunities to connect with others, building friendships and contributing to the sense of community.  We encourage each other to see God’s grace in our present situations, and acknowledge each person’s gifts and talents which are a blessing to others.
“THE grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Ghost, be with us all evermore. Amen.”
