Welcome to Trinity!
A Prayer for Unity
“In order to unite with one another, we must love one another; in order to love one another, we must know one another; in order to know one another, we must go and meet one another.” These words, known as the “Testament of Cardinal Mercier,” are an impetus for the annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. The week has been celebrated continuously since 1894 and is now celebrated around the world in January. The Ecumenical Prayer Service celebrating the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2017 will be held on Sunday, January 22, at 7 PM here at Trinity. A reception will follow. This year’s liturgy for the Week of Prayer will have a particular reference to Ecumenism in Germany: The Land of the Lutheran Reformation.

We are sponsoring Syrian refugees
In Syria, over 250,000 people have been killed, 12,000 of them children, millions are in refugee camps without access to healthcare, education, or proper sanitation. What can anyone do in the face of such suffering? Mother Teresa said:
“I never look at the masses as my responsibility…I can love only one person at a time…feed one person at a time. Just one, one, one…”
At Trinity Lutheran Church we want to help and so will start by sponsoring one Syrian refugee family to come to Canada. We will be responsible for providing half the funds necessary to support them for one year (the other half will be provided by government funding). In addition, we will help them find a home, provide furnishings, clothing and other basic material needs and identify resources to support them as they settle into this community (i.e., family doctor, school, English lessons). We look forward to the opportunity to generously love our brothers and sisters from across the globe and invite anyone else that feels called to help as well. Donations can be made to “Trinity Lutheran Church Refugee Sponsorship Fund” and 100% of the money will be used to help resettle this family. Gift cards are also available if you would like to make a donation in the name of someone else as a gift.
