Church in the Time of Covid 19
Since December 26, 2020, our region of Ontario has been in lockdown, which was later extended into February. The Parish continues to follow Red Stage guidelines set out by the Diocese of Toronto, until further notice.
We ask your fervent prayers for the health and safety of all our neighbours, especially our healthcare professionals and front-line workers. We ask that God give us the humility to do our part in this season of the Incarnation, when “…we worship and love the Word who is from the unbegotten and ineffable God, … that becoming a partaker of our sufferings, He might also bring us healing.” – Justin Martyr (c. 100 – 165 AD)

Greetings to all:
It is delightful and humbling to serve the people of Christ Church Coboconk as we focus on being present in the community.
While the programmes and activities are curtailed during this time of Covid 19, we are preparing for the new scenarios which will present themselves as we move ahead.
We are anxious to share ideas and opportunities.
I am available for pastoral support and distant visiting. Please feel free to make connection.

Hello St. James parish family,
I am Ted McCollum, your regional dean and incumbent of the church down the road in Beaverton. When Bishop Riscylla recently asked me if I would also provide pastoral oversight for St. James, I was enthusiastic to work with the wardens and members of the parish.
I have been the Priest at St. Paul’s in Beaverton for almost 25 years, and I love ministry in a small town. My wife Kim and I have two adult daughters who were raised in our small town, and our oldest has settled here with her husband and our first grandchild. There is just something so attractive about ministry in a place where you become part of a community outside of the church.
You have been fortunate to have great lay leadership in your parish, and I look forward to supporting them in our common work for the Gospel. I am also looking forward to joining you in person for worship in Fenelon Falls on January 3rd.
St. Paul’s has a YouTube channel where you can find all of my Beaverton services, plus I will soon also make a video introduction to the parishioners of St. James. You can visit this YouTube channel by search for St. Paul’s Beaverton on YouTube and clicking on our channel. The January 3rd service at St. James will be videotaped and published on this YouTube channel, and I hope this will better connect the St. James parishioners who cannot make it out for in-person worship to their church. Not being able to worship in one’s own church is difficult, and we will continue to do whatever we can to include as many of you as possible in the spiritual and worship life of St. James. Hopefully this will include online recorded services more often.
Please feel free to contact me with any concerns or pastoral issues you may have.
