Eastern Outreach Ministries – Sundays Southlands Community Centre
We are St. John’s newest non-denominational assembly and we worship at 40 Teakwood Drive in Southlands (off Southlands Boulevard) every Sunday morning at 10:30 AM. We invite you to join us and hear what the truth in God’s word has to say about the plan He has for your life!
When we are enveloped in silence we often hear the most. Through the reverend silence of the Latin Mass we hear the communing with The Almighty. We hear the one voice of all the angels chanting “Holy, Holy, Holy” and we add our own.
In the loudness of our high-tech world, it is nice to take a break and worship through the Latin Mass as our previous generations and ancestors did.
If you would like to hear in the silence, the Latin Mass is offered at 5:00 pm Sundays at St. Pius X Catholic Church on Smithville Crescent. Latin-English translation booklets provided. Sponsored by Una Voce.
