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.

The 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.
At noon on the second Tuesday of each month a group gathers at the south steps of Church of the Holy Trinity to remember all those who have died while homeless in Toronto.
