About Laura Marie Piotrowicz

I'm a high-energy priest, now serving in the Diocese of Niagara, catching glimpses of the kingdom in daily life. I consider church to be a verb, and I'm passionate about prayer, eco-theology, and social justice. I love travel, reading, canoeing, camping, gardening and cooking, playing with my dogs, and drinking good coffee.

  1. MONDAY, 24 Dec.: Our history, our future

    For our final Advent calendar entry, I thought I would highlight the richness of the Anglican tradition. We are steeped in history, and that has helped to form who we are now and who we will become as the church continues to serve in an ever-changing world. Our history includes movements (such as the Tractarians), theories (such as the Chicago-Lambeth Quadrilateral), theologians (such as Richard Hooker), Royal Peculiars (such as the College of St. George, Windsor) – the list goes on and on. Whether you prefer high, low, or broad worship; whether you enjoy matins or Eucharist; whether you consider yourself conservative or liberal: whatever your personal preferences, the Anglican church embraces those preferences and you. We celebrate unity in diversity, we are proud to be a via media church, we are truly a welcoming place for all.

    Thanks to everyone for journeying with me through Advent – I pray you have a truly blessed, happy, and safe Christmas.
