Bible Study – The Parables of Jesus

A weekly study of 10 of Jesus’ parables begins on Wednesday April 7, 2021.

Jesus used parables to teach listeners about God and how God wants us to live day-to-day. This series is intended to help us all learn about the teachings of Jesus through His parables. Also, we will consider and discuss how those teachings can be applied to our lives today; 2000 years after the parables were first told.

The weekly sessions will be held via Zoom on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm. The study guide for the series can be accessed using this link.

To sign up for this series or to get more information, please contact John MacKenzie, the Christian Education Coordinator, at christianed@stsimon.ca.

Community Breakfasts

Community Breakfasts take place one Saturday a month from October to April. This is a great opportunity to meet and socialize with Parish members and hear interesting speakers talk about their faith journeys, all while enjoying a very hearty breakfast.

Breakfast is served at 8:30 a.m. with the scheduled speaker beginning at around 9:00 a.m.

Dates for the 2020-2021 Community Breakfasts will be posted when available.

Adult Confirmation

For many, Confirmation is seen as something for younger members of the parish. However, we also recognize that many people, for various reasons, missed being confirmed when they were younger. For that reason we provide periodic guided studies which are an appropriate basis for people wishing to be confirmed.

We also recognize that many who were confirmed previously did so in a less than attentive manner, and as a result would like to go back and look at some of those foundations of faith, as well as ask questions about what it means to live as a Christian. If you are interested, we offer the option of Confirmation or Reaffirmation of Baptismal Vows and would be happy to discuss which rite is right for you.

Finally, if you were raised in another faith tradition and have found a spiritual home in Anglicanism, we offer the opportunity to be received into the Anglican Communion. If you would like to know more about any of these options, please contact us.
