2023 Pancake Supper

Yet another successful and fun Pancake Supper was held at St. Philip’s! Fun, because who doesn’t like pancakes with sausages and LOCAL maple syrup! And successful, as $565 was raised for DOORS – the Diocese of Ontario Refugee Sponsorship.

On Sunday, June 11, 2023, we will be dedicating this tree, as part of Bishop Oulton’s 160 Tree Project. St. Philip’s planted over 160 trees on parishioners’ properties in celebration of Bishop Oulton’s retirement.

What is a Vestry meeting? It’s a meeting attended by all the parishioners considered members of the parish, at which the official business of the church is discussed. This includes the minutes from the previous year’s meeting, the financial statements for the previous year and budget for the current year, and nominations of the church leaders for the current year. All these are voted on at the Vestry meeting. Click here for the guidelines for our meeting from the Diocese of Ontario.

All Mothers and Children Count: St. Philip’s is a very proud supporter of PWRDF.
