Trinity this week – September 19, 2021

Hello Trinity Friends,
Last Sunday we had a wonderful Rally Back celebration!  We had a great turnout – all with physical distance measures and covid safety precautions in place.  The afternoon (un)picnic at Camp Tillicum was also a great success as well.  So wonderful to be able to visit with Trinity friends, play some games and have a great vesper’s service. Thank you to Cindy Brownlee for organizing games! Thanks also to Cassie for organizing a baby shower gift for Kawai and Julie’s baby.  

A reminder to folk that are attending in person worship, that the doors will be locked at 10:30 sharp. There is also a chance that we may be at capacity – with physical distance measures in place, our seating is limited.  If you come late, or if we are full, please accept our apologies for not being able to attend in person, but feel welcome to join us for worship on our YouTube Channel Trinity’s Worship Services or on Cogeco’s YourTV a week later (Channel 12 and HD700 at 8 am and 3 pm).  

Next week is Orange Shirt Day – please remember to wear your Orange on Sunday September 26th and also on September 30th to honour and remember those children and their families affected by the Residential school system.

There are a number of announcements to share with you.  Please read on. 
We have just heard the news that Trinity member Marg Langlois died Rev. Ted will be leading a graveside service this afternoon.  Marg’s obituary will be posted here soon Our sympathies go out to Marg’s family and friends.
