San Esteban Anniversary Sun at 3pm

SanEstebanLogoFINALaHoly Trinity folks are invited to join with the congregation of San Esteban at 3 p.m.  this coming Sunday to mark the 10th anniversary of their congregation sharing space at Holy Trinity.
Bishop Philip Poole will be on hand. (The congregation first started worshiping at St. Stephen-in-the-Fields parish on College Street, and have continued as part of a different episcopal area from us.)
For those newer to HT,   the two congregations signed an agreement entitled ‘En Amistad’ (In Friendship) when we entered into this
relationship 10 years ago.  Sara Boyles was instrumental in bringing this about.  Nancy Whitla, Sherman and I sit on the steering committee, along with Irma Romero, Carmen Garcia and Fr Maurice Francois.
In case you want to know more about St Stephen, the church’s first martyr,  there are  two whole chapters about him -Acts 6 and 7.
He was the first named of seven deacons appointed to see to the fair distribution of food in the community, because the widows were being neglected.  He also stuck his neck out with the religious authorities, hence the martyrdom.

P.S.   The Feast of the Epiphany will be celebrated at the 10:30 a.m. service this Sunday.

Come & See Pilgrimage

On November 22, we will be visiting together 5 local places that are responding to homelessness/housing needs in their neighbourhoods. Thiscomeandsee2014 could be good for parishes looking for inspiration/direction regarding outreach initiatives, for individuals wanting to get involved in local outreach, or for people just interested in learning more about housing and homelessness in Toronto. We will have mutliple leaders from each congregation present (people with lived experience, priests, coordinators, etc.) and will journey by bus through the city, from 8am-3:30pm that day.

The costs are all covered by the Anglican National Church office, lunch and transit are included. But registration is needed!

Solidarity – Fallen Angles Nov 23

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 Solidarity. We’ll be singing songs and hearing words of hope and protest. Join us and be moved to action.

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.
