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 death and loss as we approach all hallows and all saints. We will be featuring the music of Carrie Newcomer, Grievous Angels, Marty Haugen, Stephen Foster, Bobby McFerrin. There will also be contemporary readings and time to reflect on the losses in our lives.
There is a climate justice theme running through the liturgy this Sunday, in anticipation of the summit in New York on the 23rd. University of Toronto professor and activist, Stephen Bede Scharper will preach.
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.
Come 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)
Homily delivered on May 4 by the Rev Alison Kemper
Today we hear one of the best stories in the Gospels: the appearance of Jesus on the Road to Emmaus. We celebrate a baptism—one of the most wonderful things the church does. And we gather around wee Adam, as happy and bright and darling a baby you may ever see. A Christian hat trick.
“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.
Our band, The Fallen Angles, are playing at the 10:30am service on Sunday, April 27. The theme is “Lost Together”. Lots of music and a mix of ancient and modern stories and poems. Hope you’ll come join us.
Holy Trinity is at 19 Trinity Square. Trinity Square is centred between Bay, Dundas, Yonge and Queen, hidden in the canyon of the Eaton Centre and Marriott Hotel.
The Church of the Holy Trinity is a community of people who seek to express their faith through lives of integrity, justice and compassion. We foster lay leadership, include the doubter and the marginalized, and challenge oppression wherever it may be found.
