A Celebration of Life – Bonnie Briggs

A celebration of the life of Bonnie Briggs, founder of the Homeless Memorial, will take place on Sunday, September 10 at 2 pm, here at the Church of the Holy Trinity. All are welcome. Bonnie was a tireless advocate for the homeless and under-housed population of our city. Bonnie’s leadership was crucial in this on-going issue, which was coloured by her experience as someone who had lived with homelessness.

Chris Lind Memorial

Photo_Dr_Christopher_LindThe memorial service in Toronto for Chris Lind will take place at Holy Trinity on Saturday, November 8th at 2:00 PM. It will be a bit different from the usual Holy Trinity memorial service, in that there have already been three celebrations of his life: at Christ Cathedral in Vancouver, interment at the Sorrento Centre, and a memorial service in Saskatoon.
There are plans underway to hold the Christopher Lind Moral Economy Symposium at Holy Trinity next year.
