We hope that you will enjoy your virtual visit. We would love to meet you in person in the church office, at any service, and during our refreshments after the 10:30 a.m. service of worship on Sundays. While St. Matthias parish is in the process of an amalgamation with our sister parish of All Saints Westboro (The amalgamation will take place on January 1st with our final worship here being on February 7th.), we remain a diverse group, serious about hospitality, faith, and devoted to the world God loves. We are also very attentive to stewardship. Our premise is that everything we are and all that we have is a gift from God and entrusted to our care. This is actually the basis for our amalgamation as we seek to preserve our resources for ministry. In the meantime everybody is invited to join in strengthening Christian faith and sharing hope through worship, study, and action.

As a tribute to the long relationship between our two churches, our friends from Parkdale United will be preparing & serving a hot lunch to the parishioners of St. Matthias. The event will take place here at St. Matthias following the 10:30 service on Sunday, February 7th.
Lunch will be served downstairs in MacIntosh Hall & there will be lots of time to chat, eat, and meet with old friends. The church upstairs will remain open for walk arounds, photos, memories and prayers. Everyone is welcome.
The Rev. Canon John Wilker-Blakley receives a cheque for $11,083.62 from Gaye Moffett, on behalf of Ottawa West Rotary. Through Gaye, the Club partnered with St. Matthias in raising funds needed to sponsor a refugee family from the mid-East. Thank-you!
