On Wednesday, May 20 from 7:00 to 10:00 PM, you’re invited to join us for the launch of The Ward: The Life and Loss of Toronto’s First Immigrant Neighbourhood (eds. John Lorinc, Michael McClelland, Ellen Scheinberg and Tatum Taylor) at the Church of the Holy Trinity (19 Trinity Square), one of the few remaining pieces of Toronto’s first immigrant enclave. This highly anticipated city-centric book tells the story of the growth and destruction of Toronto’s first ‘priority neighbourhood.’
In addition to brief remarks from the editors and a slideshow display of historical images from the book, the event will also feature snacks and (affordable) libations, and of course, books available for purchase.
Come meet The Ward’s diverse contributors and share your stories and connections to The Ward. We believe this is a galvanizing collection that will help change the chemistry of our city, and this event is just the kickoff for the discussions that we hope will emerge!

Please join us as we present “Nymphs & Shepherds”, our salute to the madrigal rage that swept England for the last decade of Elizabeth’s reign and beyond. All of this frivolity will be balanced by a few more sober compositions including William Byrd’s jewel, the Mass for Five Voices. Continue reading May 30 & 31 Cantemus Singers Concerts
Once a month our worship service is led by our local band, Fallen Angles, in a pop vein. The service is always thematic and uses contemporary music, both popular and liturgical. We strive for an integrated experience that affects everyone who comes.
This month our theme is “The Spirit’s Fire – Decolonizing Our Hearts”. We’ll be engaging with the Spirit’s call to compassion and action. We’ll sing, reflect and plant a heart garden in remembrance of the children who attended the Indian Residential Schools.
We’ll be joined by local singer-songwriter, Lynn Harrison.
