News – April 2017

Pancakes, real maple syrup, sausages, baked beans and fruit salad were once again a hit with the community on Shrove Tuesday as we got ready for the 40 days of Lent. On Ash Wednesday, ashes were placed on our foreheads as a symbol to mark us as Christ’s own forever and for us to remember our mortality.

Easter is almost here! We will soon be able to shout “Alleluia” as we remember Christ’s Resurrection! At Holy Trinity, starting on the first Monday evening in Lent, Reverend Sharla showed us the “tear jerker” movie, “Do you believe?”  Every Monday for the rest of Lent, there is a light supper at 6:00 pm followed by the viewing of an excerpt from the movie and a discussion.

During the week before Easter, there is a simple supper at 5pm followed by Evening Prayer on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. On Maundy Thursday, there is a 7pm service with the traditional foot and hand washing, as we remember Jesus’ last supper with his apostles.

On Good Friday, there is a 10 am worship service with confession until noon.  Then on Easter Sunday, there is a 10am Eucharist where we shout our Alleluias!

As part of our Community outreach, we have been collecting items for Nova Vita during Lent up until Mother’s Day. Donations of items for children including baby/children’s shampoo, wipes, body wash, baby utensils, bottles, formula and bibs etc. have been piling into the church. We have also been bringing in twin and double bed linens, pillow cases, towels, face cloths and new pillows. For women there is a need for makeup, deodorant, body mist, body wash etc. We hope to bring some hope and happiness to those in need.

Early Years has been a real success at Holy Trinity every Monday and Wednesday from 9 to 11:30! It is a time where moms, dads and caregivers can interact with their little ones in a fun, learning environment! There is something unique for each child to partake in from painting, doing crafts, building with blocks, playing with toys to enjoying snacks. It is a wonderful chance for children to interact with other children!

There is Sunday School every Sunday downstairs in the hall. Youth Group (Grade 6 and into high school) meets every two weeks after the church service. They are looking forward to going bowling with the youth at St. Mark’s Church in Brantford at the end of April.

If you are looking for a church to call home, come and visit us at Holy Trinity at 10 am on Sundays. You will be very welcome!

Message from Reverend Sharla

As we approach the end of our Lenten journey, it is with great joy that we look towards the celebration of Easter and the moment when we can once again shout our A…….s!

As Easter people, we are always looking to the joy of the resurrection, but at this time of year, we look with even more expectation to the promise of God that he will make all things new!

As we begin to see the grass greening, and the bulbs beginning to poke their heads out of the soil, as we greet the return of the bird’s songs and watch with hope and joy the buds about to burst on the trees,we are reminded that we have been blessed by the new covenant in the blood of Christ, a new life made possible through the resurrection of Christ and have become chosen people- gifted through grace and held strong in God’s promise of salvation.

As we head towards this heavenly celebration, we know that God is working to create new possibilities here in our parish home as well. With fresh eyes and new ideas bubbling here in our community, it is an exciting time to be able to offer our best to God. This will be my first Easter with you here in this place and I look forward to this celebration with you.

The Easter season is a time for us to renew ourselves in our personal worship as well. It is a time to take on a new challenge or discipline as some of us have done with our Lenten Movie Study, “Do You Believe” and through our donations to Nova Vita and PWRDF. This is also be an opportunity to worship God in new ways as we gather for Holy Week. This is an opportunity for us to show the local community, what the resurrection means to us. Our worshiping community has a great deal to offer to our friends and families who have yet to gather with us each week to praise God. I encourage you then to invite someone close to you to join us for worship during this Holiest of times as we give thanks for the great gift of grace found in the promise of Christ’s sacrifice.

While we can never fully comprehend or repay the sacrifice that was made for us, we can offer our praise to God for that sacrifice by making a sacrifice of our own. As we prepare for our worship and celebrations this year, I invite you to consider making a special offering to the church in thanksgiving for His wonderful gift in Christ’s sacrifice.

For now, as we continue our journey towards our Easter Celebrations, continue to praise God for the gifts He gives us as you journey through the rest of your own Lenten observance. Offer your own sacrifice, offer your own confession and offer your thanks to God as you feel called to do. This is a great time for us to grow in our relationship with God and a great time to take on that share of our promise; that we will praise him in all we have and all we do.  Download
