COLLECT FOR THE DEDICATION FESTIVAL
O MOST blessed Saviour, who didst vouchsafe thy gracious presence at the Feast of Dedication: Be present with us at this time by thy Holy Spirit, and so possess our souls by thy grace, that we maybe living temples, holy and acceptable unto thee; who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

Rector’s Message

This Sunday we are celebrating the anniversary of the dedication of our church building. Our current building was dedicated by the Bishop of Toronto in March, 1937, but since March falls in Lent, we are following the long-standing custom of marking the occasion on the first Sunday in October.

Why is this anniversary important? It’s a chance to reflect on the enormous sacrifices and efforts made by a previous generation to bequeath to us our beautiful place of worship. It’s easy to take our building for granted - as if it has always been here! But were it not for the foresight and enormous generosity of those who built this place, our parish community may not even exist today, or would, at least, exist in a very different form. It is just and right that we take a moment to remember their efforts and to praise God for what they have left us. 


You might recall that it was on Dedication Sunday two years ago, that we launched our stewardship initiative, For the Love of St. Olave’s. This effort has been enormously successful in increasing givings and growing our parish.  This Sunday, we will be discussing the legacy of our forerunners at St. Olave’s while pondering the question - “what will our legacy be?” I hope you can join us for this special celebration.
