Welcome to the website of the Anglican Parishes of Petite Riviere & New Dublin.  This website is a work in progress (as we are in our Christian lives). 


We are seeking to be a faithful body Anglican Christians knowing and serving and living in Christ on the South Shore of Nova Scotia in Lunenburg County.  Our churches are located in seven villages along the coast, in one inland village and on one of the LaHave Islands (see map) (from the LaHave River to a little beyond Hell Bay!).  We are a part of the Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island in the Anglican Church of Canada.


We use the Book of Common Prayer in our Sunday worship and to guide our daily devotions (encouraging daily prayer and daily reading of the Bible) to offer worship that we hope is acceptable to God (if our hearts be right) and to have our minds and hearts and souls shaped by its reformed catholic theology and spirituality.


I hope you will be able to join us in worship to praise and give thanks to God.


                                                                                       Blessings in Christ,


                                                                                       David Phillips, Rector




Being ever mindful of the inestimable love of God shown us in Jesus Christ who has washed us in His own Blood, made us children of God, members of his Body, inheritors of the Kingdom, and even partakers of the Divine nature; and


Responding with His Spirit of love to our call to be lights set on a hill, the salt of the earth, ambassadors for Christ entrusted with the ministry of reconciliation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation and stewards of the divine mysteries; and


Desiring that holiness without which no one will see the Lord; and


Agreeing to bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ (being quick to forgive one another);


We offer, in a spirit of deep thankfulness and humility, ourselves, our souls and bodies, to be reasonable, holy and living sacrifices unto God.
