Nurturing Mason Bees at St. Helen's

Help Us Bring Bees Back to Point Grey!

 

The bee population has been under attack from a number of environmental factors. Help us restore and nurture local indigenous Mason bees in our Point Grey neighbourhood.

Here's a story on our Palm Sunday 'Blessing of the Bees' from a previous year: click here.

For more information on why bees are under attck, and how you can help at home, watch the TED Talk here.

From the Blessing of the Bees service:

The Blessing of Bees
Bless these Mason bees and this nest O Lord and preserve them from all ills. Let your blessing descend upon bee and blossom, O Lord, that flower, tree, and shrub may be fruitful and multiply so that in beauty and abundance your whole creation blooms in praise of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen
