Taking a break for the month of August

The Church of the Epiphany is taking a break for the month of August. Our regular services will resume September 08. Although we are taking a break from our usual Sunday Religious Services, many things are still going on at the church. Check out our upcoming events page for details.

We Will Remember

The We Will Remember concert Sunday November 11 was a great success. A huge thank you to Stephen for all his work putting on the concert. As anyone there will tell you it was simply amazing. There were historical newspaper reports, beautiful music, great vocals featuring Paul Grambo and Katie Clarke, an historical piece written by Adam featuring Elsie Perrin Williams and her husband. It was a fantastic show and it raised almost $1700. Thank you very much to Stephen and crew.

The morning before the concert I met John who had come by to pay his respects at our cenotaph. John is a radio host at CHRW and when he learned about our upcoming concert suggested that he could record it and play it on the radio.

John showed up with all his gear and recorded the We Will Remember concert

Thank you also to John for putting the concert over the airwaves and providing us with this podcast.    Thank you John!!!

Afghanistan Project

The Manor and Highland Park Cenotaph sits on church property at the corner of Holborn Ave and Briscoe St. This year the committee overseeing the Cenotaph has upgraded the monument with an Afghanistan Memorial tribute. The WW1 soldier was lifted off the monument. The old granite base was removed and then replaced with a new larger granite block. The new block was inscribed with the following:

The official unveiling has taken place during our Service of Dedication October 27, 2018. Donations to this memorial project may still be made to Church of the Epiphany Memorial Fund – Afghanistan.

Please watch the You Tube video.

 

Thank you!!

Hilda’s Granddaughter  in Youtube video

Here’s a post you all want to read. Hilda’s granddaughter was recently competing the World Karate Competitions in Ireland and caught the eye of up and coming rock star songstress KT Tunstall. KT was so impressed she reshot her Video Human Being featuring Hilda’s granddaughter doing a nunchuks demonstration. Very Cool.

Manor Park – Olde Tyme Variety Show

The Manor Park Evening Post

An Old Time Variety Show

of Song, Story, Antics

Hosted by Adam Corrigan Holowitz

Music by Stephen Holowitz

Featuring: Katy Clark, Paul Grambo, Kydra Ryan –

Guest appearances by our Epiphany poets Ron and Jan

Adam writes:

The warmth of a kitchen party mixed with the fun of an old time variety show in the heart of the neighborhood of Manor Park. The night will feature a brand new story from Manor Park, a great assortment of music performed by Stephen Holowitz on piano and vocalists Paul Grambo and Katy Clark. Plus another instalment of Lucky Thinnorth, checking in on where the Volgaborg is, the By the Pound Give Away and many more delights that the writers are busily coming up with!

And it was true! What a night! An amazing show of music and comedy. Songs and stories – Stories about The Coves own Ogo Pogo, the adventures of Lucky Thinnorth, and a Manor Park couple’s amazing and exciting adventure at a modern Farm style marriage ceremony. And of course where would we be without an update on the Volgaborg. I’m a bit reluctant to talk about this, but I really enjoyed the three sketches about Alvin the Clumsy Tailor.

The music was great! Paul Grambo with his amazing baritone voice  was not to be undone by Katy Clark’s beautiful soprano tones, and the two of them together in “Lets Call the Whole Thing Off was breathtaking.

The sketches by Adam, Kydra, Paul and Katy were beyond humorous. Actually they were downright belly aching funny.

Thank you Adam, Stephen, Paul S, Paul G, Kydra, and Katy for another wonderful evening.

For those of you who missed the show this year, you can listen to a rebroadcast Sunday (Jun 16) midnight on Radio Western CHRW 94.9 on the FM dial. Here’s a few photos of the show.

Blessing of the Animals

The little church that cares held our annual blessing of the animals service April 28 at 2 PM. The event was well attended with approximately 20 dogs and one very brave cat in attendance. Several of the humans who also attended the event took advantage of our professional photographer Dianne’s portrait service. Volunteers from Saint John Ambulance told the gathering personal stories on how their therapy dogs made a difference in someone’s life. All proceeds this year went to the Saint John Ambulance Therapy Dog program. A preliminary estimate of donations received was just under $300 with more to come. The service was beautiful in the Church of the Epiphany way, beautiful meaningful service, beautiful surroundings, and beautiful music. The music again this year was provided by Stephen Holowitz. Julianne a student at Lucas High School showed us her amazing voice in a moving rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow. This was followed by the reading of the Rainbow Bridge story, which brought forth many happy memories and quite a few tears (even to the reader). The new feature this year the solemn reading of our Gone but not Forgotten list for our dearly departed pets was very well received (not a dry eye in the house). Thank you to Rev Teresa, Steve Holowitz, Julianne and all the St John Ambulance Therapy dog volunteers for a wonderful afternoon.
