Into the Light

In the photo above, the Rev. Sara Boyles conducts Ken West’s Celebration of Life, Friday, June 29th. 2018 .

Ken was a long-time member of our community, serving in many roles,  most recently on the Finance Committee. He and long time partner Bob were married here. We will keep Bob and their family in our prayers.

Bob read some of Oscar Wilde’s fine lines about love and the universe at Ken’s funeral. The lines are part of Wilde’s long, early poem called “Panthea” that celebrates all of the ancient Greek gods and their role in the celebration of life and love immersed in the world of nature.

The Annual Holy Trinity Book Sale!

Please note: This event continues on Monday, June 25th and Tuesday, June 26th!

Every year in June, under the leafy canopy of Trinity Square, people from all walks of life can be found perusing the books spread out by Holy Trinity’s Refugee Committee. This annual sale is a beloved tradition in the neighbourhood. It benefits the Refugee Committee here at Holy Trinity, who have worked hard to help settle refugees in Toronto for decades, and are still going strong.  This year’s sale takes place on Thursday June 21 and Friday June 22, starting at 9 am and ending at 5 pm each day. Come find a treasure for your coffee table, a fun beach read, or a birthday present!  If you would like to volunteer to set up or tear down the sale, please contact Kate Werneburg at kwerneburg@holytrinitytoronto.org by Friday, June 15th at 5 pm.

This side has travelled around the world, including Toronto Guild of Stitchery (TGS) meetings each month.
