The Parish Office is generally open Wednesday and Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Calls for urgent pastoral care may be placed at any time and will be responded to as soon as possible.
Life's most persistent and urgent question is:
"What are you doing for others?"
Parish Mission and Outreach
The mission of the Church is not to subsidise its existence. We are called by God through Jesus Christ to faithfully engage with the world around to proclaim the transformation of the Gospel and to participate in the coming of the Kingdom of God. As St James wrote, "faith without works is dead", and so we dedicate approximately ten percent of our annual freewill offering to making our faith come alive in the world. The Parish assists with a number of activities in Tyendinaga and the wider world. Our assistance is primarily financial but Parish members dedicate countless hours of volunteer ministry to a wide number of endeavours throughout the year.
Beneficiaries of the outreach ministry of the Parish include:
Love in ActionA group of people who raise money for mission. The group, consisting of a number of Tyendinaga parishioners, divides its money into three categories: local, provincial/national, and international. Some examples of organisations that have benefited from Love in Action's fundraising efforts are: Ministry in Kashechewan, Buy-A-Bet Malaria Prevention, AIDS Walk for Life, Cots for Kids, Sleeping Children Around the World, Bees for Babar, and a whole host of other educational, developmental, and mission-oriented agencies. The group's major fundraisers each year are an evening play at the Selby Theatre in the spring and a Tea and Bazaar held in November in Deseronto.
Mohawk GuildThe Mohawk Guild is a group, mostly comprised of women from Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, that exists to provide support in the community. Modelled on the Anglican Church Women, this group has expanded to include women from outside the Parish and regularly provides services to members of the community. The Guild often caters large gatherings such as funeral receptions and the Graduation Dinner for Quinte Mohawk School each June.
Tyendinaga Food BankAlthough the Food Bank is not a ministry of the Parish of Tyendinaga, each church devotes one Sunday per month where parishioners are encouraged to bring a donation to the food bank and monetary donations are made several times each year. Several of our parishioners are volunteers at the food bank, as well, making this vital community ministry near to the hearts of many people in our churches.
