Order of Service – Sunday July 25, 2021 @ 10:30AM
We continue our live broadcast from the Sanctuary this morning. We remain closed to public worship. Both Rev. John and Peter Devries will be away this morning. We are grateful to have Craig Clack as our Tech Lead this morning along with singers Henry, Alexander and Lenny Muth. Please welcome the Rev. Canon Karen Kovats as our service leader this morning.
The Rev. Canon Karen Kovats, was ordained a Deacon in the Anglican Church in 2003 and named a Canon of the Cathedral Chapter of Canons in the Diocese of Huron, in 2016.
Although she and her husband Dave live in Cambridge, she is very familiar with Guelph having worked in Human Resources at the university for over 25 years.
She and Dave have two married children and are actively involved in the lives of their three grandchildren.
We are now able to livestream (broadcast) via YouTube each Sunday. You don’t need a link like ZOOM. Just visit our St. Andrew’s Guelph YouTube Channel and select the live service. Thanks to our Tech Team for making this further option available. You can now invite your friends and families to our YouTube channel instead of worrying about ZOOM links.
