In-person worship services in our Parish (Trinity Shared Ministry, Clearwater and Church of St Paul, Barriere) resumed on Sunday, February 6th.
After just over a month of worshipping with prerecorded video services, the situation has changed so that once more our Parish feels that holding in-person worship services will be safe for our parishioners and not have the possibility of contributing to the spread of the virus.
This decision was based on public health information and the fact that Archbishop Lynne McNaughton has rescinded her suspension of in-person worship for all parishes in the Territory of the People.
While we have in-person worship services, prerecorded video services will not be posted to our YouTube channel. Sufficient resources are not available to provide both in-person and on-line services.
Opportunities to Share Our Blessings
beyond Our Communities of Faith
The Territory of the People is still accepting donations for the communities within the Territory that were devastated by fire and flood last year. There are two separate funds: the Lytton Fire Fund and the Nicola Valley Flood Fund. The need for funds is great and more than the Territory resources can supply. Donations can be made by using the “Donate Now” button on the Territory website (found in the top right corner or near the bottom on the right of the home page – it takes you to CanadaHelps.org for making the donation) or by cheque made payable to the Territory of the People (mailing address: 360 Nicola Street, Kamloops, BC V2C 2P5). All donations are to be earmarked “Lytton Fire Fund” or “Nicola Valley Flood Fund.” If donating online, put the name of the fund to which you are choosing to contribute in the “Send a message to this charity (optional)” space. An official tax receipt will be issued for donations from individuals and non charitable organizations. For more information, please contact the Territory office: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: 778-471-5573. Please keep the Territory in your prayers as it continues to deal with the diverse needs of all those affected by these disastrous events.
