All in-person Chapel worship services are currently suspended pursuant to COVID-19!
Now that the Summer Season of 2021 is officially over, each of our Countries are preparing to celebrate Thanksgiving Day, a fall tradition. The Canadians on Monday, October 11th and the United States on Thursday, November 25th.
These two landmark holidays deserve a moment of our reflection and appreciation as ‘we gather together to ask the Lord’s Blessing’ for abundant harvest and being a channel of hope and light to each and every one of us during these unprecedented times. We have so much to be Thankful for.
Happy Thanksgiving Day!
We have all experienced in these many months sadness and heartbreak. We have learned patience and, we have received kindness from others. We are all living day by day hoping for better days to come.
As outgoing President I am certainly hoping that better days are ahead for all of us.
The Chapel has remained steadfast. It looks beautiful and radiant.
I would like at this time to thank all of this year's virtual speakers for their words of wisdom that they instilled upon us through modern technology.
I would also like to thank you, our Parishioners, who in these difficult times have supported us in more ways than one. The Chapel lives on because of your generous support and I am hoping that you will continue to do so.
We will make next year a much better year and hopefully the Chapel will be up and running. Let us keep our fingers crossed. We should all look forward to the annual Strawberry Festival and our Sunday Services.
Please remain safe and remember to always try and help those in need during these trying times.
Best regards and warm wishes,
President, Holloway Memorial Chapel
Stewardship is not limited just to financial support. Sharing your 'talents' can be, perhaps, just as rewarding, to both you and the Chapel.

Thank you for your consideration to assist in the operation of our Chapel.
Dear Friends of the Holloway Memorial Chapel:
At our recent Board of Trustees online meeting, the Board decided to suspend all in-person Chapel worship services this year and to cancel our annual Strawberry Festival. Regrettably, the uncertainty of the COVID 19 pandemic recovery and our concern for the security and safety of our parishioners made this necessary. Although this is a disappointment, we will remain focused on the spiritual life of the Chapel during our 2021 season.
We have a diverse group of guest speakers and will continue to provide a virtual link for online viewing of their weekly messages via our email distribution list, Facebook postings and our Chapel website at: www.hollowaymemorialchapel.org.
Our Chapel Newsletter is also distributed by the same online channels, so to stay informed please make sure to send your email address to us at: HollowayMemorialChapel1@gmail.com.
Finally, I wish to thank you for your past support enabling the Chapel to remain financially healthy in 2020. The Chapel is supported by Sunday offerings and our Strawberry Festival fund raiser. This is our second year without them, so your continued support in 2021 is greatly appreciated. Details on how to support the chapel can also be found on our website.
My thoughts and prayers go out to each of you, your families and loved ones. Be safe and remember to take time to help those in need during these challenging times, until we can all be together again.
Sandy Peters President,
Holloway Memorial Chapel
