Sunday Service

During the Ontario-wide stay-at-home order, Praise Cathedral Worship Centre is allowed to carefully welcome worshippers to in-person attendance at Sunday services, at 15 percent capacity. Please read this post for proper social distancing, mandatory masks, and safety protocols. You are welcome to join us for worship, with mandatory pre-registration required. Be sure to read all the details. Together, we will continue to celebrate our faith safely.

COVID-19 Vaccine

Bishop Lennox Walker on the COVID-19 vaccine: “The COVID-19 vaccine is now available to our elderly and vulnerable. In Peel Region, we are considered one of Ontario’s ‘hot spots.’ As a result, you may be eligible to receive your first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine now, as long as you are age 18 or older. Check your postal code, and see if you can reserve a time to receive the vaccine. I have said clearly that I will be taking the vaccine. COVID-19 and its more transmissible variants remain a deadly threat. I believe in the science, and I believe in the Word of God. I encourage you to get vaccinated, and I am going to encourage Peel Region to use our gymnasium as a vaccination centre.”

Praise has moved the weekly Bible Study to Zoom to facilitate more interaction with our teacher and to give you an opportunity to see each other. Please no longer look for Bible Study on YouTube Live. Use your Zoom account to connect with Bible Study each Wednesday at 8:00 p.m.

Christmas 2020

We will remain apart as a congregation for a while longer, even as we come closer together in spirit. We will remain resolute and tenacious, passing our courage and determination to those within both our personal and virtual orbits. Mostly, we will do as God would have us do: survive first and foremost; and emerge from this trial stronger than we were when we began, with a faith in God’s strength and mercy forged in the fire of crisis. Be strong, Praise. Though the salvation of modern science is in sight, this long night of the pandemic will be at its most dangerous just before the dawn of the return to life in the middle of 2021.

Order of Distinction
