O GOD, the strength of all them that put their trust in thee: Mercifully accept our prayers; and because through the weakness of our mortal nature we can do no good thing without thee, grant us the help of thy grace, that in keeping of thy commandments we may please thee both in will and deed; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Child & Youth Minister’s farewell message

Dear St Olave’s,

Thank you for being my home. Thank you for trusting me with your precious gifts – the soon-to-be leaders of our world and church. I came here in 2017 with the mission of shaping young minds. I remember my first Sunday, we were in the Parish Hall colouring when one of the children shouted: “God’s not a boy or a girl!” My eyes almost popped out of my head – what should I say? Before I could comment another child said, “Well duh!” And so it began, the children started to shape me. They taught me a few things about God that I never would have learned. God is fun! God loves to laugh! God would rather we colour every Sunday! God loves dramatic Bible stories. Oh, and how can I forget, God wants us to sing “Jesus Loves Me” every Sunday – no excuses. 

In the Gospel of St. Matthew, the 18th chapter, Jesus says “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” (NIV) Befriending the children of St. Olave’s has taught me an important lesson: God is calling me to be like them. Laugh like them, be honest like them and most importantly, trust as they do. I know goodbyes are difficult but I trust that this is not a final goodbye. We will see each other again. While I am stepping away from my role I will still be your sister in Christ which means we will meet again.

May God bless every parishioner who finds refuge within this community. 

In Christ,

Brittany V. Hudson

This Sunday is our last Junior Church lesson until the Fall. The children will be recognized at the beginning of the service for their commitment to attending church through the year, then we’re planning to start the summer holidays with a bang! There will be gifts, face painting, a BBQ, games and more! All are welcome to celebrate and wish Brittany well.

Parishioners interested in supporting our Junior Church and Youth programs are invited to attend a meeting July 3 at 6:30 p.m. in the Ethel Brown Room. Please RSVP to the Rector


Join the Youth Group as it starts another epic movie series, this time venturing into the Marvel World with Captain America! In the Ethel Brown Room, all are welcome.
Friday, June 21, National Indigenous Day of Prayer

WATCH: As part of its response to the Primate’s Commission on Discovery, Reconciliation and Justice, the Anglican Church of Canada has produced this 60-minute documentary about the Doctrine of Discovery. Five-hundred years ago, Pope Alexander VI ruled that the lands being discovered by European explorers at the time was “empty” land and its millions of Indigenous inhabitants were “non-human.” 
This devastating decision continues to profoundly impact Indigenous and Settler people worldwide.

ORA means “pray”!
Join our Assistant Curate Rev’d Alexandra Fridays for a new service of quiet prayer and devotion from 12-1 p.m. in the chapel. The service opens and closes with prayer; the time in between is yours to spend with Christ. Come out for the whole hour, or even just for part of it, and take your rest in Him.
Congratulations to Toni Habinshuti!
Our guest speaker on June 9 from Partners in Health Rwanda was just named to the inaugural class of Women in Global Health LEAD fellows at Harvard University! Toni is one of five women named to the fellowship, which will be this fall.
