Ride for Refuge Update
Ride for Refuge happened on October 2 and was a great success! A big thank you to everyone who joined us, walked, biked, prayed, or donated to this great cause. We had fabulous weather, connected with new people, and got some exercise exploring the beautiful High Park.

We raised over $6,000 for AURA (Anglican United Refugee Alliance), helping them surpass their goal of $40,000 - thanks be to God!

If you would like to be involved with our growing ministry to refugees, please contact the Rev.Karen Isaacs.

Calling all children:
Wear your Halloween costume TWICE!
Halloween is the evening before All Saints Day, when we remember and give thanks for all those who have gone before us in this earthly life.

Halloween this year falls on Sunday, October 31st and so we would love to have all the children who are joining us on Sunday morning, come in their Halloween costume!
Bring on the Princesses, Harry Potter characters, Superheroes, and Animals! Please bring your children in their costumes and we will love to give them a blessing that Sunday in church. Please no witches, devils, or violent characters, as we give thanks for God’s ultimate triumph over death and evil.
Made to Serve One Another
Each week, Chef Omari prepares healthy meals for two local ministries that are feeding the poor and marginalized of our community: Sanctuary and Redeemer’s “The Common Table”.

In order for these meals to get where they need to go, we need volunteers who are willing to drive them! If you have a car and half an hour to spare on Tuesday or Thursday afternoons, please consider signing up for this important ministry.

Thank you for your willingness to serve!
For more information, please contact Daphne Flint-Polo.
All volunteers must provide proof of vaccination as per Diocesan protocols.
Coming Up at St. Paul's
Classical Music
Ministry Gathering
Do you like music? Would you like to help fill our beautiful space with sound? If so, whether you carry your tunes in a bucket, on a violin, or on a trumpet, the classical music ministry has a place for you!

The 11am choir will have an outdoor social gathering next Thursday, October 21, to drink hot cider and make some plans in hopeful anticipation of when we can sing again, and anyone who loves music is warmly invited. We’re itching to make music together again; and when we’re able, we want YOU to join us!

Interested? Please email Joshua Slater!
