Dunany usually comes back to life during the Holidays after a sleepy fall. Many of you would leave your home town to come celebrate with the locals. But not this year.
There will be no Christmas Eve service at St-Paul’s. But the creche is there.
It is there even though somebody bad stole one the three Kings. Was it Gaspard, or Melchior or Balthazar? Who knows! Anyway, cameras were set up after the steal to catch the sinner in case he planned to re-offend.
So far, no luck!
You will probably have a sense of déjà vu when looking at this picture of our Church shot by Robert Percy in 2013, animation courtesy of Google. Well, you are right. I have used it before but you have liked it so much that I am reusing it as it projects and image of peace and serenity that is a perfect fit for these extraordinary times.
Members of your Board Lynn, Bonnie, Robert, Diane, Lois, Maurice, Benoît and André join yours truly to wish you health, serenity, joyous moments and hope for a New Year that will bring us back to normal times.
So does Wendy Crooks, our beloved lay reader at St-Paul’s Church who has this message for you.
Dear friends and family of St-Paul’s,
We want to wish you a Merry Christmas, and especially during these times of social distancing. Love has a way of conquering any distance necessary, even throughout the COVID pandemic. May you, your family and friends feel that amazing love. We thank you most sincerely for your continued encouragement of St-Paul’s Church. It has been difficult keeping the church building closed, but everyone’s health and safety is of utmost importance. We value your support spiritually and financially; and we hope you will make your annual donation. We pray that in 2021, we will be able to safely hold in-person services with you at St-Paul’s. Please know that, although the building is closed, we are actively here, and you are all always in our prayers.
