Promote your parish events!

Crosstalk’s events calendar has looked different during the pandemic, but now that it is possible to gather again, it is a joy to once again be able to help promote parish events, whether they are in-person or online. Please send us the details of your event via the communications form on the diocesan website, and your event can also be listed on the website’s online events calendar to help reach more people.

Bulletin Board

Julian of Norwich Anglican Church, the location of St. Richard’s Columbarium on Merivale Road, has been the peaceful resting place for our loved ones’ cremated remains since 1995.

Our community has initiated a project to replace the 1960s-built church structure with a contemporary facility to accommodate a wide range of community programs and worship.

The Columbarium will be relocated in 2022. Families with a direct connection to the Columbarium will receive a letter explaining the process and will be asked for a decision on options being made available.

If you are, or know of a direct family member who has not received a letter by December 1, 2021, contact us in one of the following ways:
