This is a question that is frequently asked. 

The Quarterly Prayer Calendar is made up as a Word document and PDF, so it has ended up under Documents rather than Calendars.

To find it, go to Documents on the Menu bar.  From there, it is 4. Prayer Calendar.

We try to have the next Quarter's information posted on the Website by the middle of the month previous to the start of the Quarter.

Prayer: The School of Hope

Hope.png

Saturday, May 27, 2017 - 9:30 am to 3:30 pm

St. Michael Anglican Church, 709 - 7th Street, Canmore, AB

Many today feel anxious and afraid about their future.  Whether it be the weight of financial need, job loss, sickness, or the ordinary grind of everyday life, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed.  The church itself is not immune to such fear.  With declining numbers, the 'Generation Gap', and the sting of controversy, the church feels uneasy about its own future.  Will there be an Anglican church left for our children or grandchildren?

On top of this, we live in a world of wars and rumours of wars.  Is it possible to watch the news and not be overcome by fear?

How does prayer combat these feelings of fear and anxiety?  Could prayer be a gift that helps us re-discover HOPE for our world, our church and ourselves?

Join our speakers, Rev. Chris Roth, Friar Bob Mitchell (OFM), and Rev. Chris Nojonen as they discuss how an active and on-going prayer life is key to finding hope in this chaotic world.

The day will close with a celebration of Eucharist, presided at by Archbishop Greg Kerr-Wilson.

This is a Conference you do not want to miss!

Greetings from the Bishop

The Anglican Church is a part of the broader Christian Church and our particular history springs from the Church in England that has spread across the globe over the past several centuries.

The Diocese as a geographic area covers much of southern Alberta and we have congregations throughout that area.

If you would like to know more about where to find us, you can check out our website where there is a list of those places.

Thank you for connecting with us and may God bless you this day.

The Most Rev. Greg Kerr-Wilson, Archbishop of Calgary and Metropolitan of Rupert's Land
