Christmas 2021
Cathedral Happenings

Greetings all,

We are now in a critical situation here in Nova Scotia as cases of the new Omicron variant continue to rise at a previously unseen rate.  This particular variant, though perhaps not as highly debilitating as the original strain of Covid, is still poised to overwhelm our health care system and those who provide care within those systems.  Dr. Strang anticipates that we shall continue to see cases in the 400 – 500 range for the next week or more if we follow the new protocols.  Without compliance we will find ourselves unable to cope.

With the cancellation of in-person events such as festivals, social gatherings, special events, receptions, sports games, tournaments, arts and culture performances, it is obvious that there is a significant risk in any gathering beyond one’s own family or close social group, and limiting interactions between groups of people is essential.

In light of these concerns, and the real possibility that by encouraging people to come out for worship we may be furthering the spread, the responsible thing to do, as heartbreaking a decision as it is, requires us cancelling our in-person worship and reverting to online only. 

This certainly is not where any of us anticipated being, even a week ago, which is another indicator of how virulent this particular variant is, and our need to make every effort we can to support strained resources and keep those we love as safe as we can.  At its heart, that is the very message that Christmas conveys; love and care incarnate, in Christ and in us.  The powerful words of the Gospel writer John, proclaims; “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.”  May we too be bearers of light in this difficult time, sparks of hope for a very weary world.

On Christmas Eve, we will post two services for Christmas, on our YouTube channel and on Facebook page; one at 4 pm led by our young people, and one at 7 pm with our Bishop, The Rt. Rev. Sandra Fyfe as our homilist.

Again, I thank you for your support as we continue this long journey.

Blessings and best wishes,
