Advent chapel to grace Montreal mall

Published November 28, 2011

Young clergy and seminarians from the Anglican Diocese of Montreal are creating an oasis of holiday peace in the midst of a hectic downtown mall.

In the busy Promenades de la Cathedrale Shopping Centre, along the corridor that runs parallel to Union Street, is a quiet area where harried shoppers will soon be able to escape the chaos. It’s a place where they can unwind, pray, meditate and have a spiritual conversation over a hot drink.

From Dec 1 to 24, clergy will welcome guests on Thursdays and Fridays from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. The Right Rev. Barry Clarke, bishop of Montreal, will open and bless the Advent chapel on Dec. 1.

For more information, call the Rev. Maida Vandendorpe at 438-777-4565 or email her at [email protected].
