We are heartbroken to announce the passing of our daughter Lisa on May 11, 2019 after a brief illness. Survived by parents Bob and Linda and sister Christine, aunts, uncles and cousins. Family and friends will be received at the Church of the Epiphany, 11 Bristol St. West, London, ON, N6J 1L9 on Friday, May 17, 2019 from 10 a.m. until the time of the service to celebrate Lisa’s life at 11 a.m. Cremation has taken place. In lieu of flowers, donations to the memorial fund of the Church of the Epiphany would be appreciated.

For information and online condolences, please visit

 On Friday May 17 a service of remembrance was held at  the Church of the Epiphany. Our little church was full to the rafters with friends, relatives and co-workers. Rev Teresa led us through a beautiful memorial much appreciated by all. It was a very appropriate and proper send off for our friend Lisa.

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.

Here’s a few more pictures

World Day of Prayer at Epiphany

On Friday March first we celebrated the women of Slovenia with Westmount Presbyterian, Westview Baptist, St. John The Devine (RC), and Mount Zion United. The service was put together and run capably by our own Judy Caley. Thanks Judy.



Quilt Raffle Winner

The winner of this years Quilt was Bruce Jackson. Bruce says he’s always cold when he gets to the church on Sunday Mornings, so he will leave the quilt here. He will use it to warm up before the service.



Joe Bowman

Joe Bowman was a long time parishioner at the Church of the Epiphany. He was known in the area as the Mayor of Manor Park. He owned a Variety Store on the corner of Wharncliffe Rd and Emery St. Joe was a very generous man. If someone needed food, but couldn’t afford to pay just then – no problem. Joe would give him what he needed. In reality Joe was the first food bank in the area, long before our church food bank. Joe was also a decorated war veteran. He was instrumental in forming the Manor and Highland Park War Restoration Committee when the cenotaph was vandalized beyond repair and had to be replaced. Back in 2011 Adam, Teresa’s son Adam interviewed Joe for a school project. Here is an audio file of that interview.
