  8. Change Sunday Service Times Beginning in September

    The changes of our ministry and especially the growth of our English ministry demand more focus and pastoring from the incumbent in our weekly Sunday services.  After careful deliberation of our church leaders and the incumbent, and with the support of our area bishop, we have decided to adjust the time of our three main Sunday worships from September (September 2nd) this year:

    Mandarin service at 9:30 am 
    English service at 10:15 am  
    Cantonese service at 11:15 am  

    At the same time, due to the effectiveness of our multicultural ministry, we will become the place where the seminarians and curates will learn how to lead and pastor a muliticultural parish.  This also requires the incumbent's presence and focus in each service.  We hope that you will support the church’s decisions and adapt to new worship times with openness and prayer.  We will try the new worship time for 4 months.  At the end of the year, we will make an assessment.  If you need to share your opinions before the end of the year, please talk to Fr. Bill directly.
