St Francis’ changes

St. Francis’ is the amalgamation of three communities in north central  Winnipeg: St. Anne’s, St. Barnabas’ and St. Martin in the Fields’. Together with priests Michael Bruce and Liz Richens, and deacon Val Christopherson, they begin their first year together as a new community.
Parishoners gathered for final services of the St. Barnabas’ and St. Martin’s parishes over the summer, supported by their wider parish family. Both were moving tributes to the ministry and mission lived out of those buildings over the decades. The parishes were joined by many former members and clergy as they said goodbye to one way of being community and opened a new chapter together.
St. Francis’ is now meeting for weekly worship at the former St. Anne’s building on 253 Burrin Avenue. The St. Martin in the Fields’ building is for sale.
