How can our places of worship be welcoming, safe and spiritually-fulfilling for those who have cognitive impairments such as dementia or Alzheimer's?  For many of us, we are aware of the need to respond but are not sure what that means or how it looks.  To help us learn about and implement simple yet powerful ways for our churches to become "friendly" places, a learning workshop is being offered by St. Martin Anglican Church.  This Saturday morning worship will be led by gerontological nurse specialist Mollie Cole, RN.  This event is free of charge, and will be from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon, Saturday, November 25, at Know Presbyterian Church, 3704 - 37th Street SW, in Calgary.  All are welcome, and a special invitation is extended to clergy and other congregational leaders.  To learn more and to RSVP (by November 20), please contact the Rev. Natasha Brubaker at (403) 249-3014 or email natasha.stmartins@telus.net.

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
