Are you interested in participating in the Pride Parade? Check out this message from St. Matthew’s UC: Greetings from St. Matthew’s United Church, Halifax
As I’m sure you are already happily aware The Pride Parade will once again grace the streets of Halifax this year (Saturday July 16th) and we at St. Matthew’s couldn’t be more excited. This will be the first Parade since 2019 and as such we at St. Matthew’s feel that it is especially important that The United Church show its support with numbers. To that end our Worship and Music Committee (which is currently in the process of planing our participation in the 2022 Parade) is reaching out to you and other United Church congregations in the HRM to ask if you are planning to participate in this years Pride Parade and / or if you would be interested in walking with St. Matthew’s.
There are various clergy on call for emergency pastoral care over my time away this summer, please call the church office @ 902-466-4389 and someone from the Pastoral Care Team will respond to you.
