We would welcome Holy Trinity and any other faith group people to say a blessing – in whatever tradition is theirs. Survivors say that most people were buried in this cemetery without funerals. They remember that their friends just disappeared.

Music Mondays 25th Anniversary Season begins May 2

musicmonday_banner

 

Music Mondays has served as a launching pad for emerging talent since its inception in 1992. Our concerts take place in the warm acoustics of Holy Trinity Church, just steps away from the Eaton Centre. Our goal is to provide the highest possible musical experience to a pay-what-you-can downtown Toronto audience. Our audience includes office workers, tourists, retired folks, young children, the homeless, students and other musicians. We try to provide the best possible venue for emerging Canadian artists. The acoustics of Holy Trinity are very special – warm and inviting. The church boasts two fine instruments – a newly acquired Steinway “B” Concert Grand and a superb Casavant Frères tracker-action baroque organ. Musicians are invited to perform new Canadian works, involve the audience in the performance and push the acoustic envelope! To read more

The 12th edition of the pub party in the old chapel at Holy Trinity is coming soon. This time our featured artists will be Sue & Dwight. For the past 10 years, the singer/songwriter duo ‘Sue and Dwight’ has been a steady fixture on the Toronto Music Scene performing in clubs, house concerts and festivals. They will share their stories of the prairies, life in the big city, and travels in East Africa–perfect for the warm and intimate atmosphere of Panter’s Pub. http://www.sueanddwight.com/

PP is a semi-private party upstairs in the old chapel at Holy Trinity, 19 Trinity Square, Toronto where Local singer-songwriters, poets and radicals gather to have a good time and maybe plot the revolution.

Keith Nunn and friends will open at 8pm,
Featured artist at 9,
Dancing at 10.
Entrance by donation,
BYOB (We have wine, beer and seasonal sangria if you just want to show up).

There are many stairs, I’m sorry. I am hoping to have some ground floor events soon.
RSVP appreciated, but not necessary.

“I thirst…” Ecumenical Good Friday Walk

2016 TORONTO GOOD FRIDAY WALK TO FOCUS ON WATER

Jesus’ cry from the cross, “I am thirsty,” is the impetus for this year’s Ecumenical Good Friday Walk for Justice in downtown Toronto.

On the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation, we will walk in the Lake Ontario Waterfront watershed, starting on the shore of Lake Ontario at Harbour Square Park, just west of the ferry docks at the foot of Bay Street.  Participants will gather at 2 p.m., then proceed north on Bay Street, stopping at ‘stations’ along the way to decry the unjust use of the divine gift of water leading to environmental degradation and vast numbers of refugees.

The Walk will end at the Church of the Holy Trinity (just west of the Eaton Centre) for a brief worship service and message from Jennifer Henry, Executive Director of Kairos. “The health of water is about the health of our communities — not only the quality of our relations with the earth community within watersheds, but also the nature of relationships with Indigenous peoples as the original custodians of water,” Henry says.

A simple supper will take place there at approximately 4:00 p.m. A freewill offering will support the efforts of participating social justice organizations.

As Jesus cried out in thirst from the Cross, we too thirst for justice – for the environment and for all creatures adversely affected by systems that misuse or destroy Earth, our sacred home.

History of the walk and past walk pictures on their website.
