Renew the Cathedral: Update

Visit the Renew the Cathedral webpage for up-to-date information, drawings, etc.

Sundays @ 9

Sundays @ 9:00-9:45am in the Guild Room

"Jesus lived with the awareness that God is doing something, right here and right now, and anybody can be part of it. Jesus didn't come to give us a new set of rules to live by, but to challenge listeners to search, to question, and to wrestle with what matters most. Jesus inspired people, questioned their deeply held beliefs, provoked them when needed, comforted them, and invited them to be a part of God's work in restoring creation. Jesus started discussions about these things that matter most to God, and to us. For Jesus, God is and always has been at work, inviting us to join in."

NOOMA is a series of short films that explore our world through the teachings of Jesus. Join the discussion! Search, question, and engage what matters most. NOOMA films don't claim to hold all the answers, but they do claim to start the conversation.

Join the conversation with The Reverend Deacon Rosalyn Elm and The Reverend Michael DeKay.

Sessions run from 9:00-9:45 a.m. in the Guild Room – coffee and childcare are provided.

Project Jericho

Keep the Cathedral Walls Standing!Project Jericho

The Reality: Necessary structural repairs to the North wall of the Cathedral - with a hefty price tag.
More Reality: We have $100,000 available to start funding the work, and we’re applying to the Diocese and to other funding groups for grants to help.
More Reality: Our best guesstimates at this time indicate that we may be looking at a price tag approaching $500,000 before all is said and done.
More Reality: We will need to fund-raise a substantial amount of money to cover the difference.
The Challenge:  We are in the position of having to do emergency surgery on our beloved building.  Join in supporting Project Jericho – send in a donation to the St. Paul's Cathedral office at 472 Richmond St., London N6A 3E6 labeled specifically for Project Jericho, or find envelopes dedicated to Project Jericho at St. Paul's Cathedral.  All donations will, of course, be recognized with an income tax receipt.  Your timely and generous support of this project is greatly appreciated!

Don’t let the walls come tumbling down!

The Friday Discussion Group

All are welcome!

FRIDAYS at 9:30am - starting OCTOBER 9th and running to early DECEMBER


The format will be viewing a short video by the author, BARBARA CAWTHORNE CRAFTON, followed by our own group discussion and sharing of insights. Barbara’s sessions on forgiveness present a "clarity that eases the guilt often associated with the lack of forgiveness by saying what it isn't. It is not a job or task; it is not a conditional act to earn God's love. It is, Crafton believes, a spiritual gift given freely by a God who simply wants to connect with us. Over the course of the study, she shows how forgiveness can remove the tumor of anger from our hearts to become a means of grace that gives us back our humanity. Crafton s thoughtful insight allows participants to weigh the transforming power of forgiveness in their own lives.

Childcare is available – even on P.D. days!

CONTACT - Colleen Keech and Sarah Visscher, at , or via the Church Office with any questions or to confirm your interest in this 10-week series (maximum 12 participants) and/or to receive weekly summaries of the sessions.

Bee Fest 2015 - UPDATE

Thank you to those of you who attended Bee Fest 2015 where St. Paul's Cathedral was one of three parishes to win $500 for its new Pollination Garden – the criteria was based on:

  1. Design
  2. Education
  3. Community Development

John Sproule, Deputy Warden at the Cathedral, also won the People’s Choice Award for his beautiful photography. Congratulations to St. Paul's Cathedral and to John! We look forward to how our beautiful pollination garden will continue to grow and help us all live out our baptismal vows.

Pollination GardenPollination Garden

The Pollination Garden at St. Paul’s Cathedral was blessed by clergy and community on Sunday, August 2, 2015 immediately after the 10:00am service.

St. Paul’s Cathedral has created a pollination garden around our electronic sign at the corner of Richmond and Queens, in co-operation with the London Community Foundation who are helping to fund the project.

Pollination gardens, which benefit our increasingly endangered bees, are an easy and beautiful way for churches to fulfill the 5th Mark of Mission, which is to ‘safeguard the integrity of creation and to sustain and renew the life of the earth’.

To find out more, look on the Gardens4Bees Facebook page, or the Anglican Communion Environmental Network.

Bible Study

We invite you to study the Bible with us. Bible Study runs Thursdays 2 p.m. in the Guild Room led by the Reverend Ruth Ferrier. Continuing with the study of the Acts of the Apostles which was begun last spring, we will look at the historical background of the reading and discuss its spiritual implications for us today. Please join us for study, interesting conversation and refreshments.
