BRACEBRIDGE – Three parishes in the Diocese of Algoma are partnering with a local special needs charity to offer worship services for people with developmental challenges. For roughly a year, the parishes, all in Ontario’s Muskoka region, have been working with Community Living South Muskoka, a registered charity that serves individuals with development disability and their families, to provide the twice-monthly services.
The services are held at St. Thomas, Bracebridge; the lead cleric is the Rev. Margaret Morrison of Lake of Bays Anglican Parish; and St. James, Gravenhurst supplies a musician and prints the service bulletin. Clergy from St. Thomas and St. James also participate. Community Living South Muskoka publicizes the services, offers transportation and supplies any needed support workers.
In our music, God is glorified
