Summer 2020

Holy Trinity Church’s doors may be temporarily closed due to the Covid19 pandemic, but our hearts are still open to helping others.

Canon Mario Hyrniewicz, our interim priest, continues to inspire us with his weekly sermons, which are sent along with the prayers and readings for the week by email to each of us. For those who do not have internet service, a copy is hand delivered each week so that everyone is able to be nourished by the Holy Spirit. Cloth masks have been made and given out to any member of the church who wanted one to keep them and others safe. A few church members have responded to the need and made hospital gowns for Lisaard Hospice in Cambridge as another outreach project. Canon Mario and members of the church have endeavoured to keep in touch with others by either a phone call, e-mails or short visits. When we hear of someone’s need for prayer, we pray for them via our prayer group, who prays faithfully every day for those in need.

The ever changing meditative garden, our own little Garden of Eden on the church property, is diligently kept up and has been a source of beauty for both parishioners and members of the community alike, to enjoy and relax in. Before the pandemic hit we were busily collecting much needed items such as coffee, food items, underwear, toiletries etc. for Bridges shelter in Cambridge. This outreach will continue when we are back in church. Cheques continue to go out to help support the Brantford Food Bank and much needed items of food continue to be brought in and delivered by a parishioner. We endeavour to care for others who are less fortunate than ourselves.

It has been very heart breaking to have lost a few of our members during the pandemic and that we have not been able to grieve the same way or give out much needed hugs. We rejoice that they have left our lives better by being a part of us and that they are resting with the Lord.

Things are gearing up for September when we all hope to be back together once again worshiping in our church, albeit in a slightly different way. The need is great to be back celebrating together. If you are looking for a warm, caring church to be a part of, please give us a try! You will be most welcome!
