Good day St. Paul's,
To comply with provincial restrictions, we will continue to physically distance for Sunday services. Please maintain a one pew buffer between yourself and other parishioners and, if in the same row, please keep at least 2 metres from those from other households. Passing the peace will once again be done as visually passing of the peace from your seats. Masking will also continue and masks continue to be available for those without one.
Our 10AM Sunday service will also continue to be available online as a live-stream and Sunday's bulletin is attached here. To find our live-stream service, please visit our website and visit the Events tab and click on the “St. Paul’s Sunday Service” event to find links to our YouTube Channel.
As always, please read on for more announcements.

Service of Remembrance for Darlene Robertson - Saturday, November 20, 2:00pm - On Facebook and YouTube
It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of our beloved Darlene Robertson on Friday, November 12 after a brave battle with cancer. We invite you to the funeral service to share moments of reflection and grief for a beautiful woman who emanated joy to us and others. Details for accessing the online service are below. Due to COVID restrictions that in-person attendance has to be by invitation only. We are tracking RSVPs carefully so we can continue to invite others to attend. If it is important for you to attend in person, please message Jim with your email as soon as possible. Every effort will be made to accommodate, but we have to see how the numbers are shaping. We also may have invited some persons with out-of-date emails, and so this will aid in that regard. Technology permitting, a slide show of photos of Darlene will be streamed before and after the service.

Community Corner for Sunday, November 21
  • Please see the bulletin board at the side entrance for myths 8 and 9 that are identified in Bob Joseph’s ebook “Dispelling Common Myths about Indigenous Peoples.
    Myth #8 “There’s no connection between Indigenous unemployment and Indigenous health and social problems.” REALITY: There is a very real and observable connection between these things. Myth #9 “Missing and murdered Indigenous women brought it upon themselves.” REALITY: Decades of government policies have wreaked havoc on traditional Indigenous family relations and destroyed communities, leaving many Indigenous women and girls impoverished, demoralized, and extremely vulnerable to exploitation and attack. Murdered and missing Indigenous women did not bring this upon themselves. For more information and resources, please see the bulletin board at the side door, or visit Indigenous Corporate Training Inc. at or the Indigenous Relations Academy at You can also speak with Michelle Schurek to request a digital copy.

REACH Grant Presentation for Sunday, November 21 - Basically Babies
Basically Babies' primary mandate, as a registered charity, is to support newborn infants who are born into families in extreme need.  We do so by providing them with a "layette" which provides outfitting for an infant for the entire first year of life.  Each layette consists of approximately 110 items, including winter & summer clothing, snowsuits, sweaters, jackets, hats, mitts, sleepers, undershirts, socks, shoes, bibs, blankets, toys, storybooks, accessories and other essential baby items. We identify these extreme need families by partnering with local agencies who work on a long-term, life skills building basis with these families. Together, we seek to improve the current situation of families with newborns who find themselves in extreme need and are currently unable to provide basic, essential baby items for their newborn.

Our vision is to ensure that every baby within greater Edmonton and Calgary, that is living in a situation of extreme need, is cared for by providing a layette to meet their first year needs.  Our role is to advance and protect the welfare of infants born into families in extreme need through the provision of a beautiful gift of a gender-specific, cost-effective, baby wardrobe containing a one year supply of baby clothing and accessories.  Our desire is to communicate value, dignity and hope to the recipient families while strengthening the relationships and credibility between families in need and our partner agencies who serve them by providing layettes for them to deliver to these families.
