The Royal Canadian College of Organists has for a number of years presented, in conjunction with a host church, a series of five Wednesday noon hour Lenten Organ Communion Services.
The services are short, 12:15 – 12:45, to fit into a lunch hour, a contemplative period in the day which includes Scripture Readings, Prayer, Communion and five musical selections on the organ. Each week, a different RCCO-member organist is featured. At the end of each service, those who are able, get together for cinnamon buns, coffee and fellowship.
This year, our host church is once again at:
St Andrew’s Anglican Church (Woodhaven)
2700 Portage Avenue (near Grace Hospital)
Last year’s series was very well received with many compliments about both the excellence of the music and the spirituality of the services.
