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.

Picnic Church – Sun Jun 22

For the fourth year in a row, we will worship in High Park on Sunday June 22. Once again, the music for the service will be provided by our own Fallen Angles. After the service, we will share a pot-luck lunch and have various picnic games. We will be joined by San Esteban and St. Paul’s Runnymede.

picnic-basketCome ready for a good time, but please dress for the weather and bring a picnic dish to share. Plates, cutlery, cups, and serviettes will also be provided, but you may want to bring a folding chair or blanket to sit on.  Sunny weather is forecast.

This is the only Holy Trinity worship service today. It will take place at Area 26 of High Park at 10:30 AM. Area 26 is in the southeast quadrant of the park, close to the High Park Blvd entrance to the park from Parkside Drive. Google Maps link.

Other ways of getting to the park:

  • take the 506 Carlton streetcar to the end of the line (High Park Loop)
  • take the Bloor Subway to the Keele Station (Keele becomes  Parkside at Bloor) –it’s a bit of a walk, (the 80 Queensway bus does not run on Sunday)
  • there is parking at High Park if you drive

Baptism of Adam, Easter 3, Road to Emmaus

Sold out for Silver photos

“Sold out for Silver” was the theme of this year’s Ecumenical
Good Friday Walk for Justice, which started and ended with worship at Holy Trinity. Walkers visited
four stations in the downtown core to note modern-day crucifixions including environmental degradation,
human trafficking, unjust trials of refugee claimants and homelessness.
