HolyTrinity.TO–our new home on the web

We’ve been on the web for a long time now. When we first came online, social media was email and we picked holytrinitytoronto.org because it was available and was relatively clear. We collectively refer to ourselves as H.T. and have done so since before anyone can remember.

Times change and–while we stand firm in our commitment to justice and to maintaining a spiritual oasis for all in the heart of this beautiful, but frantic, city–we change too.

As we have expanded our presence on social media, we have, through a mix of forethought and happenstance, become pretty solidly HolyTrinityTO. It’s a closer match to the more informal folk we are and so we are moving our web presence a bit to be more in sync. Over the next few months we’ll be migrating our web and email to a new domain. The old addresses will work (and probably always will), but we’ll be more deliberately hanging out at HolyTrinity.TO (or on social media at HolyTrinityTO).

Interesting stuff to be found when you search the Toronto Archives online collection for us. We’ve been around. Here’s a wee sample of some of the images you can find of us there…

The director, Susan Watson, was resigned to using the back-up doll when 40 minutes before show time the head usher excitedly told her that he had found a 10-month baby girl to play Jesus and that her parents were from Nazareth!

Walking Holy Trinity’s Parish Bounds (followed by Lunch)

Saturday, July 22, 2017 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM

The Holy Trinity Strategic Planning Committee, as part of the environmental scan phase of our process, invites you to join us for a walk around the parish boundary (Queen Street—University Avenue—College/Carlton Street—Jarvis Street). Bring a cell phone or camera to document things that catch your attention, or that might prompt further conversation later. The circuit is exactly 5 KM, and Google Maps estimates it will take an hour to walk. We will meet at Holy Trinity at 10:00 AM, head out when everyone has gathered, and return to share lunch and any reflections afterward.
