Echo Women’s Choir, celebrating 25 years, continues to provide unique offerings that bridge the classical and contemporary choral spheres while always maintaining a strong commentary on issues facing our world. Their concert “We Can’t Keep Quiet!” takes its name from the #ICANTKEEPQUIET campaign created by American musician MILCK based on her song Quiet. An artist that “finds comfort in discomfort,” MILCK created the campaign to be a rallying call to break cycles of oppression and fear. The song was performed by a guerilla choir during the Women’s March on Washington, DC, on January 21, 2017.

Saturday, November 5 from 5 to 9 PM Celebrate Sanctuary North’s fifteenth anniversary! There will be supper, a bar, music, entertainment and a slide show of Sanctuary North’s fifteen year history here in the church, 19 Trinity Square. This event is hosted by the Sanctuary North Board and related organizations.
Sanctuary North would not exist if it hadn’t been for a sixty thousand dollar grant that the congregation approved from a “windfall” we received just before the turn of the century. A lot of people from Holy Trinity and San Esteban communities have been involved from the outset though Sanctuary North has welcomed refugees from many different communities.
Please speak with Lee or Michael Creal or Ian Sowton to say you are coming so we can plan for realistic numbers. Email email@example.com It will be a great occasion. A Holy Trinity achievement worth celebrating!

“I write songs to calm those who’ve looked into, and seen, what is in their hearts. I also write songs to terrify those who have not.” — Jon Brooks
Nearing the end of a year of travel in 1997 throughout Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, and particularly, throughout war ruined Bosnia-Herzegovina, Jon Brooks discovered what kind of song he wanted to write. In 2005, he began writing and performing that song – the song that looks for the soul of things. In 2010 Jon became the fourth Canadian since 1975 to win the prestigious Kerrville (TX) New Folk Award. Founder of The Kerrville Folk Festival, the late Rod Kennedy, said of Jon: “(Brooks) speaks and sings words that need to be spoken and sung and he does it beautifully, perfectly, and with absolute finesse.” He has now been nominated four times for ‘English Songwriter of the Year’ by the Canadian Folk Music Awards (2007, 2009, 2012, and 2015). Jon’s fifth album, The Smiling and Beautiful Countryside, was released November 1, 2014 by Borealis Records and was nominated for two 2015 Canadian Folk Music Awards: ‘Contemporary Album of the Year’ and ‘English Songwriter of the Year.’
