COVID Worship Restrictions LiftedEffective June 5, the Diocese of Toronto has lifted all gathering and worship restrictions related to COVID. This means that masks are now optional. At this point we must all respect that the decision to wear a mask, or not wear one, is a personal one. Please continue to monitor yourselves for COVID-related symptoms and stay home whenever you are not feeling well. As part of the lifting of restrictions, the Common Cup will now be offered during Holy Communion. No one who receives the Bread is obligated to drink from the Cup. Please remember that the practice of intinction (dipping the wafer in the wine) is not permitted in the Diocese of Toronto. 3. Sunday, June 26: Outdoor Service & Pride ParadeWeather permitting we will be holding the 10:30 service outside, followed by a pot-luck picnic lunch. Immediately following, many of us (including kids) will make our way downtown for the 2pm annual Pride Parade. We will be joining other Anglicans from across the Diocese and marching together. This is important because, as we say at the beginning of our services, “we know that love is love.” If you would like to be part of the St. Aidan’s group going to the parade, please contact Gemma or Jeff. 4. Church Office Summer HoursPlease note that the Church Office is open from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm Tuesday to Thursday during June, July and August.  Please have notices in to the Church Office by Wednesday noon. 5.

New Podcast Episode!The parish podcast - Boardwalk Talk - features a brand new episode, an in-depth interview with Lucy Reid. She reflects on her experiences growing up in a village in England, her early desire to be a priest, her move to Canada to be ordained, working in various places, including 17 years as a chaplain at the University of Guelph, raising three children with her spouse David, and lessons learned along the way. 8. Prayer ListIf there are people you would like us to pray for in church on Sundays, please write their names (first name only) in the folder that is on the cabinet in the narthex, before you go through the second set of doors into the sanctuary. There is one page for every two Sundays, so you may write the name on later pages if desired. 9.
