Hello Trinity Friends,
As you may have heard, it was announced a short time ago that we will be going into a province wide shutdown for the next 28 days. We know that this news will be difficult for many of you – it has been a challenging year – but we know that the vaccines are coming and there is an end in sight. I have heard that those of you who are 55 and older can now call the health unit to book your vaccine. Some pharmacies will be handling the vaccine in the coming weeks as well.
Due to news of the provincial lockdown, we have decided that we will be closed for in person worship until after the lockdown is lifted. Services will continue to be available on YouTube, on Cogeco’s YourTV and by DVD.
The Good Friday service will air on Cogeco channel 12 (700 in HD) at 9:30 am, 1 pm and 9 pm. There will be Sunday services available (one week behind) at 8 am and 3 pm. So this Sunday will air last Sunday’s Palm Sunday service. Both the North Bay and area Good Friday service and the Easter Sunday service will be available to watch here Trinity’s YouTube Channel The Good Friday service will begin airing at 10:30 am Friday April 2nd and the Easter Sunday service will be available beginning Sunday April 4th at 10:30 am.
Just a couple of additional announcements
Sometimes laughter is the best medicine to get us through challenging times. We have two opportunities to share some laughs:
1) Holy Humour SundayWe are still looking for people willing to share some jokes for Holy Humour Sunday. If you are willing to be a joker but don’t have a joke – please let me know and we will provide you with a good joke. Please record your joke and send it in by Monday April 5th, 6 pm. All ages are welcome! Email firstname.lastname@example.org
2) Mass HystericalLooking for something to do during the lockdown? Why not check out this great FUNdraiser idea from your Trinity Fundraising Team? Comedy icon Colin Mochrie hosts “Mass Hysterical”, a Comedic Cantata. The video is a collaboration between alumni of Second City Toronto and members of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. “Mass Hysterical” celebrates more than 1000 years of ecclesiastical music, taking a satirical, but loving look at the repertoire, the composers, the personalities and even the congregations themselves. The video is 1 hour 23 minutes in length. You can click on the following link to watch a trailer and then purchase the full video to watch on your own devices. https://vimeo.com/494280190
The show costs $20 (with $10 going to Trinity’s roof fund)
