Happy New Year 2021!!

We wish you a most blessed and hopeful new year!

Emmaus’ Christmas Giving

We are very grateful for all of the support we receive at Christmas and throughout the year. Please consider once again supporting St. Vincent Place this Christmas.

What can you do to help?

  • We are once again providing for the adults and teens ‘stockings’ in drawstring bags with toothbrushes, toothpaste, hand sanitizer, socks, toque, gloves, chocolate and  a gift card from Tim’s or McDonald’s. In addition, there is a team of four who have made over 200 face masks so that one may go in each parcel. A big thank you for this generosity! 
  • Children’s gifts for Vincent Place are required for newborns to early teens. We are hoping to provide each one with a gift bag, similar to the adults, in the $15 to $25 range, looking at toys, puzzles, games, Lego, etc. while also including hats, mitts, and other practical items. To avoid duplication and increase interest, it was thought that we would ask for people to choose a focus, listing age and whether male or female. (Girl, age 10; 2 month old boy; etc.) This could be indicated on the envelope or through a phone call.
  • If it is easier for you to give a gift of money, please place it in an envelope marked “Vincent Place Christmas” and place it on the offering plate or through the mail slot and we will do the shopping. 

If you can’t get to us, we’ll come to you. Please phone to arrange a pick-up of your donation (whether it’s a gift, toiletries, or cash): Emmaus Church Office 759-2545; Betty Philion  942-0632; or Judy Pratt 971-1857.

Your help in this undertaking, as well as your prayers for those in need, are truly appreciated.           

We give because God gives us everything.

James Mesich hiking for PWRDF

James Mesich is hiking the Lake Superior Coastal Trail to raise money for PWRDF’s Ride for Refuge Campaign.  Details of his adventure are available below.  Your support of his endeavour would be greatly appreciated!

“Hello everyone! This week my father and I will be hiking the Lake Superior Coastal Trail in Lake Superior Provincial Park to raise money for PWRDF`s Ride for Refuge Campaign. The Hike will be 72 km long with 1.7 km of elevation gain over 9 days. We will start on September 14th and we will finish on the 23rd. As someone who has volunteered with the PWRDF National Youth Council for the past four years I can tell you that they are an amazing organisation who work with partners around the world to facilitate positive change. They work with people on the ground and help them rather than simply coming in and telling people what to do. If you would like to donate check out the link attached and stay tuned for pictures and updates (although cell service will be spotty at best). Thank you everyone for your help.”

Emmaus Reopening September 6!

Good day everyone. On behalf of the Incumbent and wardens of Emmaus Anglican Church, I am very excited to let you know we will be worshipping together – in the church – beginning Sunday, September 6th, 2020.

We are entering what the Anglican Church of Canada calls the “Amber Stage” which means worship together will look a little different. We will, of course, be following all of the mandated COVID-19 safety protocols. Everyone is asked to wear a mask (as per the Algoma Public Health regulation), maintain a distance of 6 feet (2m) between people as much as is possible, and all surfaces will be sanitized.

All parishioners will be receiving a letter – either electronically or as a paper copy – detailing what to expect when you return.

We will resume the usual 10:30am Sunday morning service and, if there is enough interest, we will also have a 5pm Saturday evening service in order to allow for everyone to be in church who wants to be in church. The Emmaus worship space can safely accommodate 50 people which may not be enough to get everyone there for a service at one time.

Please contact Emmaus by phone…705-759-2545…or by email at emmausanglicanssm@gmail.com to let us know if you will be returning as of September 6th and which service you would be interested in attending (10:30am Sunday morning or 5pm Saturday evening).

Please note: If we do need to have a Saturday evening service, the first one would be no sooner than Saturday, September 12.

We look forward to hearing from you and to seeing many of you in person soon!

God’s Peace be with you,


(Lay Pastoral Associate)
