St. Paul's Cathedral

Cathedral Life

Communications Team

The St. Paul’s Cathedral Communications Team convened in June 2014 with a mandate to provide support and resources to assist in the development of short and long term strategies for effective church communication activities (both internally and externally) at St. Paul’s Cathedral, London. Major goals of the Communications Team include the redesign and implementation of the new St. Paul’s Cathedral website, and development and implementation of a long-term comprehensive Communications Strategy for St. Paul’s.

To become part of this ministry, contact the Church Office.

Pollination Garden

Bumble Bee on a flower blossomIn 2015 a Pollination Garden was added to the Cathedral grounds, located near the corner of Richmond Street and Queens Avenue.  The garden is a haven for our endangered bees, butterflies, and other pollinators, and it is a beautiful way for the Cathedral 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'.  It is easy to contribute to the Pollination Garden in many different ways. Enjoy some time watching the bees in action.  Teach others about pollinators and the plants that sustain them.  Help maintain the garden so that it thrives for many years to come.

For more information, contact John Sproule through the Church Office.

Social Club

All members and guests of St. Paul's are automatically members of the Social Club, and are most welcome to join in on all of our events.  These include Pot Luck dinners, Carol-singing, golf tournaments, board game tournaments and much more. Events are publicized well in advance, so please check the announcements in the bulletin and see Events on the St. Paul’s website and Facebook page. 

Come along and make some new friends!  If you’re interested in helping to plan events, please contact the Church Office

Sunday Coffee Group

Do you enjoy baking, or sharing a coffee with a friend?  Sunday Coffee hour is a time after the service to meet people in our congregation and make new friends.  This time of fellowship is greatly enhanced by the generous donations of baked goods by volunteers.  If you are not able to contribute food but would still like to be a part of this ministry, volunteers are also needed to help clean up afterwards.

If you feel led to contribute to the life of the Cathedral by supporting this fun, weekly event, please contact Heather Clark, care of the Church Office.

Tour Guild

Do you have an appreciation for the beauty and history of St. Paul’s Cathedral and a talent for story-telling?  Sharing your passion for the Cathedral’s stained glass windows and tapestries, military and local history, art and architecture can help guests and fellow parishioners develop a deeper connection to this place of worship and historic landmark.  Consider joining the Tour Guild, where you will learn the history of the fabric and founding people of our Cathedral, so that you can share these stories with others. Tours are scheduled on the first Sunday of each month immediately following the 10:00am service, and on other special occasions as advertised.

For more information, please email The Reverend Deacon Pat Henderson, or call her at (519) 434-3225 x215. Alternatively, you may contact her through the Church Office.

Welcoming Ministry

The Welcoming Ministry, or Greeters, invite each person who comes through the doors of St. Paul’s to make themselves at home in God’s house.  Providing friendly smiles and handshakes, information about the Anglican style of worship, and directions to the Cathedral facilities, nursery or coffee hour, members of this Ministry work to promote a sense of welcoming and belonging at the Cathedral.  Receiving a word of encouragement, reassurance, or a gesture of kindness may be the most significant encounters of some people’s entire church experience.

Please contact the Church Office, to share your faith in this quiet but essential manner.
