Our heartfelt sympathy to Lynn Woods on the passing of her husband Gary on April 7, and her sister Anne on April 1. This follows the death of her mother Jean only a few months ago. Lynn’s mother and her sister lived in England. Our sincere sympathy and our prayers are with Lynn at this sad time.


There is still time! Macgregor (North Country) Meat fundraiser continues until May 9. Please note that we are unable to accept late orders. The catalogue and order forms were emailed to parishioners on our email list, and is posted on our website. To arrange to pick up hard copies, you may contact Margaret, 905 775 7289. During Covid this was one of our major fundraisers last fall and we hope to be successful again this spring. Please let your friends and family know about this sale. Orders can also be dropped off at the church Wednesday May 5 from 9 am – 11 am; please knock loudly as the door is locked for security reasons.The more orders we put in, the more money Trinity has to support our important ministries! We would also like to let anyone who does not wish to purchase meat but who would consider supporting this fundraising initiative know that you may make a donation to the church on behalf of this fundraiser and receive a receipt for your full donation. If you have questions, please contact Gretchen Dewhirst (416) 818-9213 or

Cooking with Rev. Dana – Sunday June 6 starting at 4:30

Join me, Rev. Dana, for a special cooking class from the rectory. This promises to be a funevent, filled with good cooking, recipes and lots of laughs.

We will be cooking Chicken Souvlaki with a marinade from scratch, Tzatziki sauce and Greek salad. Assuming the weather cooperates we will even show you an option for finishing your Souvlaki on the BBQ (with my sous chef Stewart). A vegetarian option will also be offered in place of chicken. June 6, stating at 4:30 pm, and dinner should be ready shortly after 6 pm. For those who wish to remain on the Zoom we can also have dinner together, a chance for more conversation. The cost for the event is $25 per registrant (household) and limited to 15. To register you can email me (, and payment will be arranged through me either by cheque to the parish or an e-transfer directly to me. Each registrant will receive a Zoom invitation to the exclusive event. Prior to the class you will receive a shopping list and the recipes to follow along. You are welcome to invite friends and family, they just need to contact me to register and arrange payment.

So, join me as I share my passion for cooking.

Church yard/boot sale

We are hoping to be able to host a sale in the parking lot later this summer. As you continue to clean and tidy during the latest stay-at-home order, please put aside items you might be willing to sell at the sale. More details to come.

Bottle Drive

We are hosting a series of bottle drives throughout the spring and summer in our parking lot. The first one will be Saturday May 29, 9 am to 11 am. There will be volunteers in the parking lot to receive your empties. So start gathering them up, and help us share the news, inviting friends and family to drop-off of theirs. And no judgements on how much anyone brings –after all you might be collecting from others.Stay tuned for dates for June, July and August as well. 

Garden Knit and Chat – As soon as the stay-at-home order has been lifted, when we can gather in small groups outside, our Garden Knit and Chat will resume in the Silveys’ back yard— socially-distanced with masks on.  Please bring your own chair. Gatherings cannot resume before late May, and no definite date can be set yet. But please stay tuned! When we start up again we will meet on the 2ndand 4th Wednesday of each month as in the past, from 2pm to 4pm. Any one wishing to attend must register with Anne Silvey at 905-775-3237. If she does not answer please leave a message and she shall get back to you.  Attendance will be limited to the maximum allowed under the gathering rules.

May Finance Feature

Trinity Church is the grateful recipient of a bequest from the late Ruth Wood. For many decades Ruth was a dedicated parishioner of Trinity, organist and choir director for over 25 years, head of the Altar Guild for many years, besides being active in many other ways. We will be planting and dedicating a red maple tree in memory of Ruth, with an outdoor dedication service in September for the whole parish.

Have you thought about including Trinity in your will? Bequests can assist with much-needed work and the ongoing mission of the parish.
