Easter Day!

On Sunday, April 1, we gathered as a community to celebrate Easter. We flowered the Cross, sang, listened to scripture and held a community feast.

Poem in Honour of Matthew Dolmage

Matt Dolmage at his keyboard in Orillia

This poem is to honour Matthew Dolmage, who was born April 2, 1974 and who died February 21, 2004.

His mother Marilyn wrote it, and would like to recognize all the ways Matthew’s memory remains among the people and within the sanctuary of The Church of the Holy Trinity.

Matthew heard the birds in Bach.

Make me smile on a February morning,
Remembering how Matthew loved bird music.
