MOST RECENT WORSHIP BROADCAST
We are delighted to share with you the broadcast from February 14, 2021 featuring inspirational music with special guest, singer Jennifer Enns Modolo, and organist Peter Nikiforuk, an invitation to a Lent journey on Wednesday evenings, prayers including requests from across the country, readings, a message, and the celebration of Holy Communion.
Jennifer Enns Modolo is an accomplished concert soloist with repertoire ranging from early music to contemporary. She performs regularly with choirs and orchestras large and small throughout Ontario and across Canada. Jennifer is a member of the Hamilton based ensemble Capella Intima, which specializes in performing exciting concerts of lesser known 17th century vocal and operatic music, as well as the Spiritus Ensemble. When not teaching, rehearsing or performing, she enjoys spending as much time as possible with her three growing children and husband Mark. Jennifer was one of the first soloists to sing for us when lockdown began almost a year ago and we’re delighted to welcome her back.
We offer these worship elements for you to use this day or at your convenience; the timeline is listed below so you can jump to the pieces that are helpful for you. Hymn numbers are for Evangelical Lutheran Worship.
Blessing on your worship!

NEED TECH SUPPORT?
There’s a new program called enTECH@home that provides phone- and email-based tech support to anyone who may need a bit of technology help. This service is entirely free, and run by University of Waterloo student volunteers.
“We are happy to provide support to anyone who contacts us – this service is available to you no matter where you live or how old you are. We are happy to provide support to community members living in retirement homes and long-term care homes.”
Services are currently only offered in English. We are looking into providing support in other languages.
Common issues include:
- Problems with video calling
- Setting up an email account
- How to use YouTube
- Joining online religious services
- Other technology issues
A volunteer will make two attempts to contact you, after which we would ask you to reconnect with us and provide your updated availability. (http://www.entech.club, accessed Feb18,21)
