From the roof of HT in 1974


An amazing image shared with us this week by the photographer William Perry.

I walked into the church with a 4×5 camera, big tripod and a couple dozen 4×5 negative cartridges, maybe 50 pounds and asked “Can I go up on the roof to take some photos” and someone took me to the staircase in the turret up to the edge of the roof and I dragged the equipment up to the peak.

[Note to any contemporary roof climbers: sorry, no. It’s not 1974]

Looking towards Yonge Street.

Icon gifted to Holy Trinity

Hélène Beaumont and her husband, Jérôme, live in France, but visit Holy Trinity for Christmas, Holy Week/Easter, and in the fall each year. They were married at Holy Trinity during the Sunday morning liturgy on the Sunday after Easter, 2013. Hélène is ordained in the Huguenot tradition, and is also an iconographer. She created an icon for Holy Trinity, entitled Le Christ des Chrétiens d’Orient et des Réfugiés, pictured here, which was blessed at the Easter Vigil this year.

Panter’s Pub 11: A Reconciling Heart, feat. Kim Cole

PP_springThe 11th edition of the pub party in the old chapel at Holy Trinity is fast approaching. This Saturday night our featured artist will be Kim Cole. A fixture on the Toronto busker scene, Kim is a great singer/songwriter who has released two excellent albums to date. I’ve been a fan of hers for a couple of years and am really excited to have her join us this month. She keeps a low profile online, but you can catch a flavour in this snippet from the subway a couple years ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djgMw9Kxx6U

Photo Exhibit May 25 to 30 – Snapping Back

Open May 25 to 30 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM

Opening Reception Tuesday, May 26 5:00 to 9:00 PM

The images in Snapping Back were created by marginalized youth who participated in Planned Parenthood Toronto’s Supporting Youth in Building Resiliency and Healthy Relationships project. In this exhibition, viewers see how youth imagine themselves, and how they navigate their worlds as they explore identity, consent, boundaries, desire, and sexuality. Giving youth cameras to document their process offers a sense of agency and control over their feelings, and a way to transform experiences into art. This exhibit is part of the Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival

Like Watchers for the Morning: Temptation

Tay Moss, incumbent at Church of the Messiah, is producing a Lenten reflection series for the Anglican Church of Canada. As a visual backdrop, he is filming churches at night. Quite a fascinating process. I worked with Tay to film Holy Trinity as the setting for the second installment. I had no idea at the time what the text would be. In watching this today, I found his take on temptation quite interesting. You can watch below or follow the whole series at the national web site.
