Ash Wednesday: Lent begins on March 1st

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.

Sermon for Ordination of Michael Shapcott to the Diaconate December 4

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.
