Rector's Welcome Message
Welcome to St. John the Divine Anglican Church! That’s what you will hear from us when you visit us on a Sunday morning at our century-old church in downtown Courtenay. For right now-welcome to St. John the Divine Church’s website! I am glad you have found our website, and I hope all that you see and read here will inspire you to worship with us.
You will find us to be a warm and friendly congregation that considers the worship of God and the preaching of God's Word to be the sure foundation of our life together as a community of faith. We celebrate our diversity while, at the same time, we know and rejoice that we are one body in Christ, our Saviour. Our love and fellowship for one another is empowered by the unconditional love that God has for us. Whoever you are and wherever you are on your travels through life, you are invited to share this love and fellowship with us and join us on this journey of faith. As you review our website, you will not only see all the services and activities we offer, but you will come to see that we are moving more and more deeply into the knowledge and love of God and love for one another.
I am willing to help you in any way and to respond to any concern or question. Please contact me by e-mail: (firstname.lastname@example.org) or telephone (250-334-4331) if you have any questions or concerns about our parish activities and ministries. So whether you’re new to the area or have been in the Comox Valley your whole life, whether you live 30 minutes away or two blocks away … we hope you’ll visit us soon and be moved to make this amazing parish your church home. As rector, I hope to have the chance to welcome you personally to St. John the Divine Church some Sunday soon. Thank you again for visiting our web site, for certain the best way to get a picture of St. John the Divine Church is to come and visit us in worship and join us in our fellowship activities. Come by and see us as we come together at 8:30 am & 10:00 am on Sundays. See you in Church!
Your brother in Christ,
The Rev. Anthony Divinagracia, Rector
Our Mission Statement:
"We proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ in our lives and in the loving service we offer our community."
"As we gather we recognize that we live, work and play on the traditional lands of the First Nations Peoples. We also join in a line of Anglicans who have worshipped on these lands. As we continue we commit ourselves as a settler church and people to continue with our First Nations neighbours on the journey of truth and reconciliation."
