ST. MATTHEW’S The Anglican Church in the Glebe

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
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. Tickets prices are: Reserved $35
(Adults), $25 (Students), General Admission: $25 (Adults) and $15
(Students). A $5 premium applies for at-door purchases. Online at, or at the church office from mid-Oct.

Sponsorship Opportunities for Handel’s Messiah
Adopt an oboe or cherish a cello! Because of the high costs
of hiring a professional orchestra and soloists, we are again
seeking sponsors for St. Matthew’s productions of this year’s
Messiah. Sponsors will be listed in the program, including
commercial logos if desired. Supporters may also personalize their
adoptions, for example making the donation in the name of a young
musician in the family or as a memorial for a loved one. Donations may also be made in support of St. Matthew’s hardworking choirs. These gifts are tax-deductible. Advertisements in the program may also be purchased. Please contact
Peggy Nankivell at 613-230-8669 or
Pew cushions are at the front and back of the church, help yourself.
Healing Prayers during 10 a.m. Eucharist—If you desire a prayer for
healing for yourself or a loved one, please come to the transept on the
pulpit side during Communion. All are welcome.

Collegiate Institute will then tell the story of Harold Fisher, member of
our church and a graduate of Glebe Collegiate, killed in action WW 2.
Our contribution to the solemn ceremonies taking place across Canada

Anglican Diocese of Ottawa—
Creation Matters Dialogue:
Fossil Fuel Divestment and
Re-investment—According to
Archbishop Desmond Tutu, “people
of conscience need to break their ties
with corporations financing the injustice of climate change.” Should
we, as individuals and as a church, join the fossil fuel divestment
movement, and re-invest in other ways? Join Creation Matters, the
environmental subcommittee of the Diocese of Ottawa, with invited
speakers/panelists, for presentations and discussion on fossil fuel divestment and re-investment for individuals and the church.
When: 2 - 5 pm, Saturday 15 November 2014 at St. Matthew’s.
Reserve your spot: 613-234-4024 / email - [email protected] / web -
Invited speakers will include Dr. Walter Whitely, a leader in fossil fuel
divestment from Trinity St. Paul’s United Church in Toronto, and
Tricia Spooner, an expert on socially responsible investing, including
fossil fuel divestment, from Wood Gundy.
