Celts invade St. Hilda’s!

Filed under: Diocese of Niagara — David Jenkins @ 12:15 am

Rev. Cheryl Fricker of St. Aidan’s Oakville has obviously been told by her masters in the diocese of Niagara to Add an Imageput some people in St. Hilda’s building – anyone at all – to make it appear that the diocese is doing something useful there.

From the diocese of Niagara web site here:

Description: All are welcome to join us every Sunday at 8:30 am in the spirit of St. Hilda to celebrate communion together using the songs and prayers form the Celtic Christian Tradition.

Looking for a later service?

Description: If 8:30 is too early for you, please join us at St. Aidan’s Anglican Church at 318 Queen Mary Drive for our 10 AM family Eucharist. Take Rebecca east to Forsythe, go North on Forsythe to Queen Mary. The church is at the corner of Queen Mary and Stewart Street. All are welcome!

Little pretence is made that there is actually any need for an 8:30 service at St. Hilda’s since, if 8:30 is too early, come along to St. Aidan’s building. We are all one happy family – we all really attend St. Aidan’s anyway.

Cheryl makes even less effort to disguise the fact that the congregation at St. Aidan’s is simply using St. Hilda’s building to make a political statement here:

Early Celtic Communion
St. Aidan’s, Oakville
Every Sunday Morning at St. Hilda’s Anglican Church 1258 Rebecca Street, right next door to the Library. All are welcome! 8:30 AM

It’s just as well that Celts are used to a cold, damp environment since Cheryl isn’t getting up early enough to turn on the heat.
