Holy Trinity News – September 2018

Posted by on Sep 13, 2018 in News | Comments Off on Holy Trinity News – September 2018

A new church year has begun with the very pressing reminder to take care of our precious earth! The
quiet sighs of moms can be heard everywhere as school has started up for the year!

Holy Trinity has had a busy summer once again, as we collected many backpacks and numerous school
supplies for the elementary and high school students who use the Brantford Food Bank. There is much

We will no longer be tracking mud and dirt into the church as we have a new paved parking lot complete
with marked parking spaces. It was a long time coming, but the results are much appreciated!

Vacation Bible School was held in July at the church with the theme “Splash Canyon”. One of the highlights for the children was going to the Lions Club Splash Pad for the teaching of Naaman being healed in the Jordan River. The children participated in fun games, explored the beautiful garden and ate the wonderful treats that parishioners made for them in the great outdoors.

It was wonderful for the church to be able to help facilitate a refugee family from Syria to come to Canada. It took a few years, but they are now happily re-united with their extended family. They were very grateful for all the items generously brought in for them.

Three of our youth were able to go to the CLAY get-together (Canadian Lutheran and Anglican Youth) National Youth Conference held this summer in Thunder Bay. What a wonderful event and a life changing experience for them! We are looking forward to hearing their stories later this month. If you are in the area and enjoy gardens, be sure to walk through The Doug Livingstone Meditative Garden beside the church where there are always new treasures blooming. It is meant to be enjoyed by all!

A lot of camaraderie took place as we made pie dough, peeled and cut up apples for Apple Fest! The Youth Group helped by putting together 100 pie boxes. The pies always sell out quickly; some people prefer theirs frozen while others want theirs freshly baked and ready to devour!

Early ON (formerly called Early Years) continued to meet throughout the summer this year in the church basement. It is a fun learning experience for parents and caregivers to interact with their children ages birth to 6 years.

Come and join us for our Harvest Thanksgiving on September 30 th at 10:00 am. All are welcome!

Suicide Prevention Week

Suicide Prevention Week

September 9th to 15th is Suicide Prevention Week.  There are many who struggle with depression that
can lead to suicide in all sectors of our society.  In particular there are high rates of suicide in some indigenous communities and among young adults.  Please remember this week all who are affected by suicide – those struggling with depression, family members of those who have committed suicide, first responders and mental health specialists.  Especially remember the suicide prevention workers from the national Anglican Church of Canada Indigenous Ministry office who work in First Nations communities.  Too often there is silence about suicide and its effects.  Sharing in prayer and being willing to talk about it may open new avenues for ministry and strengthening community ties that will help heal.
