St. Olave’s has always been home to me. Many psalms speak of God’s provision for a refuge, meeting place, or home to abide in. (Psalm 90:1-2, Psalm 91:1-2).

Since my parents, grandparents, relatives and friends were active here, in Church and Scouting, I was blessed to grow up in a loving and lively “home.”

Once called a “cradle Anglican,” I was fortunate to celebrate Baptism (1930), Sunday school, confirmation and marriage (1955) at St. Olave’s. It has been a vibrant journey for me surrounded by treasured friends, beautiful liturgy, (ie The Book of Common Prayer), music, creativity and Bible-centred learning. One can appreciate how to “Worship the Lord in the Beauty of Holiness” through our precious sacraments.

St. Olave’s is an ideal place to experience this Beauty within lovely architecture, with dear friends, surrounded by heavenly music. Here we can grow in the Lord, and find ourselves in the Family of God.
