Book Sale June 25 & 26

books_featureThe Holy Trinity Refugee Committee will host it’s Annual Book Sale on Thursday, June 25 & Friday June 26 from 9 to 5 or so. This will be held on the south side of the building.

All funds raised directly support the work of The Holy Trinity Refugee Committee. The committee is currently sponsoring a family of four from Columbia, a man of Palestinian descent from Iraq and a father and daughter from Iran. With the support of the Church of the Holy Trinity and other amazing volunteers and contributors, we are able to provide financial and emotional support for these seven refugees while they settle into a new country and community. Always looking ahead, we are excited to continue with the tradition of a book sale fundraiser which over the years has contributed directly to the support of our newly arrived families.

Donations of books (no magazines or textbooks) can be dropped off at 19 Trinity Square Monday to Friday 11 AM to 3 PM. If you require pick up contact Margot at mlinken@holytrinitytoronto.org or 416-598-4521 ext. 222

Book Launch Today

On Wednesday, May 20 from 7:00 to 10:00 PM, you’re invited to join us for the launch of The Ward: The Life and Loss of Toronto’s First Immigrant Neighbourhood (eds. John Lorinc, Michael McClelland, Ellen Scheinberg and Tatum Taylor) at the Church of the Holy Trinity (19 Trinity Square), one of the few remaining pieces of Toronto’s first immigrant enclave. This highly anticipated city-centric book tells the story of the growth and destruction of Toronto’s first ‘priority neighbourhood.’
In addition to brief remarks from the editors and a slideshow display of historical images from the book, the event will also feature snacks and (affordable) libations, and of course, books available for purchase.
Come meet The Ward’s diverse contributors and share your stories and connections to The Ward. We believe this is a galvanizing collection that will help change the chemistry of our city, and this event is just the kickoff for the discussions that we hope will emerge!

May 24, Worship: The Spirit’s Fire – Decolonizing Our Hearts

Once a month our worship service is led by our local band, Fallen Angles, in a pop vein. The service is always thematic and uses contemporary music, both popular and liturgical. We strive for an integrated experience that affects everyone who comes.

This month our theme is “The Spirit’s Fire – Decolonizing Our Hearts”. We’ll be engaging with the Spirit’s call to compassion and action. We’ll sing, reflect and plant a heart garden in remembrance of the children who attended the Indian Residential Schools.

We’ll be joined by local singer-songwriter, Lynn Harrison.
