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.

These photos were taken by our caretakers and Vivian Harrower.

Thank you, Stella!

On Wednesday, February 21, one of our long-time People Presence volunteers, Stella Savage, retired from the ministry. We had a tiny surprise party for her! Thank you Stella, for your commitment to keeping the doors open and  welcoming all those who enter.

If you are interested in volunteering for People Presence, Sunday breakfast hosting, or any other volunteer position, please contact Kate Werneburg, volunteer co-ordinator at kwerneburg@holytrinitytoronto.org.

Lifting Spirits and voices

Lifting Spirits just finished its second edition. Thirty years earlier, almost to the day, The Cowboy Junkies recorded their breakout album, The Trinity Session right here at HT. The sound in our space is amazing and we made good use of it. Pub Choir sang three songs from that album and did three more that were a little easier to wrap our lips around and made the room ring.

James Harbeck took some great pictures, though they seem to miss many people, maybe he has more to share. 🙂 Continue reading Lifting Spirits and voices

Lifting Spirits: Solstice Edition

Since ancient times, the sun has been an object of fascination. Without it, there is no life on Earth, and it is good to use this moment of the solstice or “sun stand still”,  as it is literally translated, to mark changes internal and external in our world.

On December 21 from 8:30 pm-10:30 pm, we will celebrate the longest night of the year with a candle lit labyrinth walk, followed by  refreshments and singing inside.  Join this family-friendly version of Lifting Spirits as we observe the turning of the year!
