"Easter 2017"


The events of Holy Week and the Day of Resurrection have come and gone for another year or have they? Bear in mind that every Sunday is “a little Easter” a constant reminder of God’s compassion and love for this world and for all who inhabit it.

The season of Easter is a season of 50 Days beginning with Easter Sunday and coming to a joyful conclusion on Pentecost Sunday (June 4th this year). Rejoice and be glad in it!

About Us

Welcome to the parish of Belmont.
Come on in. We love to have visitors, and look forward to meeting you.

There are 3 churches that make up the parish; in the heart of the Kawarthas.

St. Michael's is situated in a lovely forested setting, just outside of the tiny hamlet of Westwood.

Christ Church is nestled into a picturesque backdrop on a maple lined street in the small town of Norwood.

St. John the Evangelist stands proud on it's beautiful corner lot in Havelock.

Our small rural communities have come together in our own Anglican community here in the parish of belmont.

Parish of Belmont Incumbent

The Reverend Gloria Master

Rev. Gloria Master has been the Incumbent in the Parish of Belmont since September 2005. She and her husband Don have retired to the small rural community of Norwood.

Gloria is an active advocate for small multi-point and rural churches of all denominations. When she can discover a rare moment of spare time, Gloria enjoys reading, puttering in the garden, walking and, most recently, photography.

Fundscrip

You can help us raise money by joining our gift card fundraiser and it won't cost you a penny more than you would normally spend on everyday items!

Want to know how it works? Check out the video, or read on below.


What is the FundScrip fundraising program?

Fundscrip is an innovative program that lets you earn cash rebates for our group based on things you buy everyday like groceries, gas and other household items.

Every month you spend hundreds of dollars for things like food, gas, clothing, pharmacy, restaurants, electronics, home renovations, department stores, and so on.

All you have to do is pay for some or all of your purchases using GIFT CARDS bought at face value from FundScrip participating retailers and a percentage of every gift card purchased is contributed to our group’s fundraising efforts. So instead of paying with cash or a debit card, you use a gift card that you purchased through our group. It costs you nothing extra but you just earned money for our organization.

How to Order Your Gift Card & Support our Group

Visit the FundScrip website at www.fundscrip.com and click on the “Sign Up” button located on the top right hand corner and fill in the required information.
