Welcome to St. Monica’s Anglican Church. Whether you missed a Sunday or just want to explore who we are online, we hope that our website reflects who we are and let’s you know that we are a welcoming community of faith.
We worship on Sunday mornings at 10:30am in the downstairs space of St. John’s Norway (400 Woodbine Avenue). Our service is typically an hour long followed by a time to catch up with each other over some snacks.
Our services are relaxed and you are invited to participate as much as you are able and willing. Our services use the words and prayers that Anglicans all over the world and through time have used. We make a joyful noise singing both traditional and modern hymns that help us praise God.
We alternate between Morning Prayer and Holy Eucharist (Communion) services. If you have been baptized in any Christian Church, you are welcome to take part in the Eucharist. The priest will bring a piece of bread to you followed by someone who will bring a cup of wine. If for whatever reason you are not taking part, you can signal this by crossing your arms over your chest and the priest will say a pray of blessing for you.
We believe that we are called to give our whole lives over to God. One way that Christians have given is through financial gifts. This enables some of the ministry to the neighbourhood. You are welcome to give. If this is your first time visiting, you are our guest and we do not want you to feel obligated. We also our time to God. We encourage members to write out some of the ways they have given their time as a symbol of offering our whole lives to God.
