Please, dear friends in Christ, pause now in silence to remember those who died on this day 20 years ago and pray for those whose lives were forever altered…..

In the name of God, Eternal Glory, Incarnate Word and Abiding Spirit. Amen.

I commend to you Bishop Asbil’s letter to the Diocese of yesterday’s date in which he reflects on the events of 9/11.


On Friday September 24th at 7:00 pm the Civic Awards Virtual Gala will be taking place. St. Peter’s TNL and Jan Stapleton will be recognized. You can join the virtual gala on the Town of Cobourg’s YouTube channel: or tune in “YourTVNorthumberland” on COGECO Cable10 / HD Cable 700.

A reminder that our return to in-person worship services has been postponed. At this time I cannot say when exactly we will resume in-person services. The Wardens, the Health & Wellness team and I are following the current developments, especially in light of the Delta variant of Covid. We are still following the protocol laid out in the Diocese of Toronto’s Amber Stage. Though we are all anxious to return to some sense of normalcy, I encourage us all to continue to be vigilant in taking all precautions that we possibly can.

The Form of Service and the Greeting, Gospel Introduction and Reflection for tomorrow, September 12, 2021, the Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost, are both attached.  Please do join us on-line tomorrow by going to our Facebook page at

As has become our practice on Sunday mornings, tomorrow we will gather virtually on Zoom at 10:45 for a time of fellowship and conversation (which is sometimes quite light and at other times quite profound). Please do join us tomorrow by clicking on this Zoom link or by using Meeting ID: 821 8616 3195 and Passcode: 709303.

Blessings, Ric
