As part of our ongoing work and hope for reconciliation with indigenous people, we realise that we need to change our understanding of who we are and to whom we belong. Through the season of Lent this year, we will be exploring our relationship with the land we share–the land our building is part of, the land we live on, the other people who share this land.
We invite any and all who share this place with us to join us in this process:

The parish pyro-technician burns the palms from last Palm Sunday to create the ashes for this Ash Wednesday, which in 2017 falls on March 1st. There will be two services that day, one at 12:15 and one at 7:00 PM.
During the Season of Lent, we will be weaving the theme of journeying into right relations with the indigenous heritages with our Sunday worship experience.
Come and journey with us from Ashes to Easter.

Join us next week for the first 2017 memorial. We will gather outside for 20 to 30 minutes and then enjoy a light lunch together inside.
There maybe an opportunity to create quilt squares.

Ordination of Michael Shapcott to the Diaconate
Church of the Holy Trinity, Toronto, December 4, 2016
A Sermon by Maylanne Maybee
How glad I am on this Advent evening to be in this hopeful place with this prophetic company of people – gathered to remember the Human One, Jesus the Christ, in the breaking of bread, to commemorate Nicholas Ferrar, deacon, gathered to ordain our friend Michael to the diaconate in the laying on of hands, gathered to be nurtured and sent forth as agents of God’s transforming justice.
How glad I am to celebrate this evening with Michael and with so many others! I’ve known Michael off and on over the years. We have followed parallel and sometimes intersecting paths in the cause of housing for those who face homelessness. I was delighted when I first heard he was discerning a call to the diaconate, delighted to see him at General Synod this summer, delighted to be invited to be your homilist this evening on this wonderful occasion.
