News from Holy Trinity

For the past 6 weeks, Holy Trinity has joined with the United Church to do an outreach project for the Wish Closet at Major Ballachey School in Brantford.  Each week, there has been an emphasis on a particular item that is really needed there. Some of the things that have been brought in are household items, small appliances, clothing, bedding, underwear, linens, books and toys. The Youth Group at Holy Trinity cut out fabric to make 19 fleece hats for children. They were then sewn together by members of the parish and also taken to the Wish Closet.  While delivering the items, we were told that everything would put to good use, especially for the flood victims in Brantford!

On Ash Wednesday, the United Church joined us for a combined service where Pastor Chris did the sermon and the following Sunday, we joined them at their church where Rev. Sharla did the sermon.  It is important for us to remember that we are all united as we try to follow Christ.

Holy Trinity has sponsored the second Paint Nite in St. George to help raise money for the youth to go to Thunder Bay this summer with the Canadian Lutheran Anglican Youth (CLAY).  The Legion generously donated the use of their building. A fun time was had by all and some interesting, colourful paintings have emerged.

The church is also very grateful to the Legion for allowing them to use their building and barbecue to host the Community Barbecue and Silent Auction on Saturday, March 24th from 5:00 to 7:00. Hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hotdogs, sausages and dessert will be served.  Bring your appetites and come and see the great baskets in the Silent auction!

Each week during Lent, a Bible study has taken place, as we compared and contrasted the passion narratives in the Bible.  Looking at the background of the Biblical times and who the author was  speaking to, gives us a clearer understanding of why one Gospel story emphasizes an event and another either leaves it out or gives only a brief mention.

A Book Study meets every Thursday morning and reads and discusses a different book. During the past weeks, discussion has been on “The Divine Dance” by Richard Rohr.

Easter is almost upon us as we celebrate this very important event for Christians. All are welcome to join us!
