Blessing of the Animals

This year on the church calendar, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and the environment, is on Sunday, October 4th. You are invited on this day, to bring
your family’s pet(s) to a “Blessing of the Animals”. We’ll meet on the church lawn (beside 272 Peel Street) at 4:00 pm for a short blessing, approximately 20 minutes. You are welcome to bring a lawn chair if you’d prefer to sit.

While this is an outdoor service, physical distancing will need to be maintained. We also need to discourage the mingling of pets, so please ensure your pet is on a leash. Kindly bring
along your poop ’n’ scoop baggies for any souvenirs they leave behind. (The property guys will appreciate it when cutting the grass!)

If the event needs to be cancelled due to inclement weather, Pastor Tanya will give an update at online worship on October 4th at 9:30 am.

Monday Morning Meetup

On Monday mornings through the end of September, weather permitting, you are invited to pop by Trinity for an informal outdoor, physically-distanced visit with Pastor Tanya.

From 10:00 am to 11:00 am, we’ll have a few chairs set up on Trinity’s Peel Street lawn, right beside 272 Peel Street. (You can bring your own chair, if you prefer.)

Fill a Backpack Project

We invite you to help out with Trinity’s “Fill a Backpack” project in support of oneROOF Youth Services in Kitchener, which provides support to homeless and at-risk youth in our region.

Purchase a backpack and fill it with newly purchased items from the following list:

  • Underwear (adult male and female sizes)
  • Socks (adult sizes)
  • Deodorant
  • Travel-size shampoo/conditioner
  • Bug spray and sunblock

We have a couple of drop-off points for backpacks! Call the church office for information on where to drop yours off. We also encourage you to remember oneROOF in your financial
offerings through Trinity.

Thank you for your generosity in supporting our community partners!
