Downtown Churches Barbecue

On Friday June 8th the downtown Churches group held a Barbecue outside Christ the King Church. Many people enjoyed burgers, hotdogs and cold drinks thanks to the folks from six downtown churches – Christ the King, Ste Anne des Pins Roman Catholic Church, St. Andrew’s United Church, Anglican Church of the Epiphany, Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church and All Nations Church who came together to support the less fortunate in the Sudbury community.

Summer Service Hours

This year we will begin our summer service schedule earlier than usual. We will gather for worship at 10:00am on Sunday mornings (one service only, each week) starting on Sunday June 3rd until Labour Day Weekend in September.

Upcoming Ordination

Bishop Anne Germond is pleased to announce the upcoming ordination of Patti Brace, God willing, as a deacon in the church of God.  The service is scheduled for Saturday, June 9th, 2018 commencing at 1 p.m. at Church of the Epiphany, Sudbury.  The Rev. Dr. Bob Derrenbacker, Provost of Thorneloe University and Honourary Associate at Church of the Ascension, will be the preacher.  A reception, hosted by churches within the Sudbury-Manitoulin Deanery where Patti has served, will follow the service.  All are welcome!

Patti has a B.A. (Hons) from Trent University, Peterborough; a M.A. (English) and a Ph.D (English) from Queen’s University, Kingston; and she is near to completing her M.Div. from Trinity College, Toronto (2019).  She is currently an Associate Professor at Laurentian University, Sudbury.

As a cradle Anglican, Patti has been involved in various aspects of church life from her childhood.  She admits to pursuing career choices and starting a family while at the same time discerning a call to ordained ministry that “refused to go away”.  She is actively involved in her parish home in Sudbury (Epiphany) and has been involved in various parishes in Canada and the UK when travels and academic pursuits took her from Sudbury.

We uphold Patti and her son, Caleb, in prayer as she prepares for this next step in her journey.
