At sunset on November 11, bells will ring across Canada to honour Canada's Veterans and commemorate the end of WWI -- when church bells tolled to signal the end of four years of war.

The St Matthias church bell will be rung along with all these bells across the country. When you hear the bells toll, take a moment to pause and remember all those who served and sacrificed. And if you'd like to come to the church, we'll gather outside just before sunset for a short observance and ring the bell.

For more information, please visit the Bells of Peace site.

Calling young people aged 13-17 – come prepare to be confirmed with 7 sessions exploring the Christian faith, the meaning of your baptism, and God's call upon your life. To be confirmed is to say YES to the YES of God already spoken to you through the waters of baptism, and to be empowered by the Holy Spirit at work in and through your life.

We will use the The Pilgrim Way as a base for our conversations, and explore our faith together.

Please send a note to the rector at david [at] stmatthiasedmonton.ca with questions or to sign up and we will establish a schedule that works for the whole group, beginning with a first session tentatively scheduled for Sunday November 18 following the 10am service.
