Lauded as a priest and prophet, Desmond Tutu served as bishop of Lesotho from 1976 to 1978, general secretary of the South African Council of Churches, and archbishop of Cape Town and primate of Southern Africa from 1986 to 1996. Archbishop Tutu is remembered as a "towering figure in the struggle for freedom and for human dignity and rights" and was the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 for his role in the opposition to apartheid in South Africa. Read more here.

Worship Shifts Online During Fifth Wave

At the end of December, Bishop Susan Bell announced that worship and ministry activities will shift online in the face of dire warnings from public health officials and growing case numbers related to the highly transmissible Omicron variant of concern. 

"We are in the midst of something dangerous and seismic – and the prudent and loving thing to do is to strive to protect us all – from the youngest who are as yet still unvaccinated and vulnerable, to the most senior who are similarly at risk," wrote Bishop Bell in a pastoral letter to the diocese.

With Monday's announcement by the Ontario government that the province would be moving back to Step 2 of its pandemic framework, the Bishop updated our ministry guidelines to align with new regulations.

Worship is to be conducted online. Church buildings are to be closed, with limited exceptions. Social and emergency food services, as well as pastoral care appointments will continue in-person as necessary.
