Trinity this week – World Wide Communion – October 2, 2022

Hello Trinity Friends,Please join us this Sunday October 2nd for World Wide Communion service at 10:30 am.  For those who are joining us via YouTube Trinity’s Worship Services, feel free to gather your own elements at home and join us for communion virtually. The Sunday School will participate in communion and then head to Sunday School class to learn about special meals around the world and play some international games. 

Thanksgiving Offering Envelopes will be distributed at Church this Sunday.  Donations will be collected for the Food Shelf programs on Thanksgiving Sunday.  Please bring in your donations of cash/cheques, shelf stable/long life food items, diapers (Size 6 and under) on Thanksgiving Sunday to be collected by the Sunday School.  Thank you for your support to this important and needed ministry.

Today is the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day.  It is wonderful to see so many people wearing Orange in honour of those children who did not survive Residential Schools and to the survivors!  Please take some time today to educate yourself about the historic and ongoing legacy of residential schools. Today is a day of remembrance and healing!  You will find resources and information on the National Truth and Reconciliation Page found here Indigenous Friendship Centres across our region are hosting events and welcome all people to attend.  Please check with your local friendship centre to see what is happening in your area.  You can also join (virtually) with events happening in Ottawa and around the country through CBC radio/television or online.  Events begin around 12:30 EST and will occur throughout the day.
