    Toronto parish participates in Nuit Blanche
    Midnight on Saturday is not a time many people would traditionally associate with poetry. But then, there was much that was not traditional about The Composition Engine, a performance art installation curated by Toronto’s Anglican Church of St. Stephen-in-the-Fields on Oct. 4 in conjunction with Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, an annual all-night arts festival that takes place across downtown Toronto.

  • Big care on campus

    Big care on campus
    For all its benefits, university can be an unsettling experience for young adults. Some are living away from the familiar shelter of home and community for the first time. Some will encounter ideas that shake their long-held religious beliefs, while others will be struggling with their sexual identity.

  • A journey like no other

    A journey like no other
    You are exhausted and surrounded by an almost palpable fear.

    You feel a wave of sadness because of all places, you associate this house, here in Bethany, with warmth, security and friendship.
