What is P.I.E. day? A day to highlight our work to Publicly, Intentionally, and Explicitly welcome all people inclusive of diverse gender and sexual identities to St. Laurence. PIE day is an affirming twist to International Pi day celebrations held on 3.14, March 14.
Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159. Pi Day is an annual opportunity for math enthusiasts to recite the infinite digits of Pi, talk to their friends about math, and to eat pie.
Why Pi? Love is a circle. It’s irrational, inclusive and infinite. And we’re delighted to add an affirming twist to International Pi day celebrations on 3.14, March 14.
Join us for our on-line service on March 14th: our preacher will be Keith Murray, a faith leader and artist who currently leads the thriving LGBTQ2IA+ affirming ministries at Hillhurst United Church. And yes, there will be pie available in the church parking lot (served in a physically distanced manner) between 2:00 – 3:00 P.M.
