On Sunday, October 29th, Holy Trinity and San Esteban joined together to celebrate Holy Trinity’s 170 years as a parish. It was a joyous day marked by a procession, the presence of our first rector, Henry Scadding, drummers, and cake!
On Monday, a couple of community members undertook a project to turn our fire-damaged doors into a proclamation of our values and to welcome our neighbours into our space. What do you think of this art project? Continue reading “Love your neighbour – love yourself”
This past Sunday, we participated in the Diocese-led event Social Media Sunday. Members of the congregation and our admin assistant Kate posted to our social media accounts from church, from music rehearsals, and from the Great Lakes Water Walk with the hashtag #SMS17.
The posts add up to a beautiful archive of one day in the life of Holy Trinity. It showcases our values, and how we enact them. See the story for yourself at:

Here are a few excerpts from our recent Sunday gathering: Many Waters.
Today we have gathered and we see that the cycles of life continue.
We have been given the duty to live in balance and harmony
with each other and all living things.
So now, we bring our minds together as one as we give greetings and thanks to each other as people.
(Excerpt from Haudenosaunee Thanksgiving Address, Greetings to the Natural World)
Lace your boots,
pick up your paddle,
mount your bike and go out
blessing each other—
strong, brave, laughing
and making hope wherever you may.
At the end of this Sunday’s service, we will be blessing bikes and riders as the weather warms up. Join us this Sunday, and bring your bike, your helmet, and your bell for a little extra spiritual help this biking season.
