New name for parish

The Church of the Apostles is the new name of the Anglican parish located at 86 Glasgow Street North in Guelph.

The re-naming comes as the congregations of St. James the Apostle and St. Matthias seek to affirm their covenant relationship.

The covenant has guided their shared worship, faith formation, social action and advocacy, and community activities for over a year, as well as a desire to move forward renewed for God’s mission in Guelph.

The new name also keeps the heritage of the congregations’ former names, with Matthias and James both being among Jesus’ apostles.

The Reverend Canon Trudy Lebans is Priest-in-Charge.
