A Study of St. Mark’s Gospel - A short study on the Gospel of St. Mark will be offered on two consecutive Thursdays, Nov 13th and 20th from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. There will be a reading and reflection and a bowl of soup for lunch. This will be excellent preparation to begin hearing the way St. Mark tells the story of Jesus. Mark will be the main Gospel heard in our worship for the next liturgical year beginning in Advent. Our student intern, Victoria Scott, will be leading this study. Plan to join us if you can.

WRITTEN IN STONE—(or wood, or plaster, or glass) At a Chapel Chat today, parishioners David Farr and Peter Rider will explore the history of St. Matthew's and show how some of it is recorded in the fabric of the building itself. The Chapel Chat will begin with the creation of the Diocese of Ottawa and move on to its expansion, the creation of St. Matthew's Parish being one of its early manifestations. A silent witness to these events stands before all who enter St. Matthew's. The physical surroundings are a legacy, a burden, and a foundation for the future. Messiah (Nov. 22 and 23) - Four top Canadian guest soloists will headline this year’s pre-Christmas presentation of Handel’s joyous Messiah oratorio by the combined choirs of St. Matthew’s. Conducted by Kirkland Adsett, the church’s Men and Boys’ and Women and Girls’ choirs will be joined by soprano Jennifer Taverner, mezzosoprano Lydia Piehl, tenor James McLean and baritone Geoffrey Sirett. Featuring a professional orchestra, two candlelit performances will be held: Sat. Nov. 22 at 7pm and Sun. Nov. 23 at 2pm. This will be the 21st annual staging by St. Matthew’s of the Messiah and the first year with a matinee concert.
