Greetings! Happy first day of Spring 2021!

I was pleased to be at the Port Hope Extendicare this past Thursday (I always go the third Thursday of the month for a service). The residents, all now vaccinated, helped me identify and celebrate the many signs of Spring - birds returning, ice melting, seeds planting, rain falling - and all bringing new life.

After this 'holy hibernation' of COVID time, we look cautiously to celebrate the spiritual gifts that spring, Holy Week and Easter have for us. Read below some of what is planned and, depending on protocols and other factors, additional opportunities of experiencing new life in this season of reawakening.

This Sunday at 10:30 join us ONLINE LIVE for a service of Morning Prayer from the church with myself, Randy Mills and Phil Redford.

Know that I am always available via the Rectory or cell phone numbers (as below) or on email at priest@stmarksporthope.ca. Keep the faith and grow in love!

Father William
