We are a faith-community of everyday
people, exploring, experiencing and sharing God's love within the
vibrant traditions of The United
Church of Canada

person Sunday worship, which was open to a limited number of people due
to COVID-19 restrictions. When the Government of Quebec tightened the
restrictions even more the beginning of February 2021, we could no

resumed in person worship, respecting the restrictions, the end of March

the Lord remains forever.
