ouisa Blair (in red snow pants and tuque) plays the accordion at an outdoor service in front of the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Old Quebec on Jan. 23. Due to public health restrictions, places of worship in Quebec have been unable to hold regular indoor services since December. That hasn’t stopped these hardy congregants from Holy Trinity and St. Michael’s Church in Sillery, who have worshipped together outdoors in the shadow of the cathedral for the last four Sundays. “I love the music, the singing, the people, the people together, the seeing of the people in the flesh (albeit the frozen flesh), the simplicity of it, the sharing of prayers, the beauty of the surroundings with the hundreds-of-years-old trees and the fresh snow, the fire which is like the heart of God burning for love of us when the world is cold and we are lonely and COVID is raging,” Blair told the QCT.
