Many Hands, One Heart, Sacred Love for All

The Season of Creation
“Setting the Plumb Line” 
Amos 7:7-17   • Colossians 1:1-14  • Luke 10:25-37
We are the plumb line; time for reform, tear down, build up, God time. Time to return, shake up, listen for the God promise, something beautiful will happen. Go prophesy, melt the hardened way. Thank God, see the vision, fruit grow, with faith, hope, love in community. Love God, neighbour and self; with heart, soul, strength, mind. Learn the Samaritan way, live acts of mercy on the traveller road here and now.

Please email Rev Dr John Joseph Mastandrea at for link, meeting id, and passcode.

SERRA Fundraiser for the Roehampton Shelter

Late last year, SERRA (South Eglinton Ratepayers' and Residents' Association) raised $6,678 for seniors at the Roehampton Shelter. Manor Road United Church helped to purchase and deliver TV tables, portable bathroom bars, shopping carts, indoor folding tables, patio chairs, mattress covers, gift cards, program memberships, and eyeglasses. Thank you to all who supported this initiative!
  A note from our treasurer, Neil Jacoby        
In 2021 the church made donations to 13 registered charities, including the M&S Fund. The donations included $16,540 to the M&S Fund and $4,095 to 12 other charities. Most of these donations came from Samaritan Fund contributions.
