Welcome to the parish of Holy Trinity, located in White Rock, British Columbia, a part of the Diocese of New Westminster and the Anglican Church of Canada.

A Caring Christian Community Seeking and Welcoming Others to Join Us in Our Journey of Faith.

Mark Your Calendars!
  Trinity Sunday

HOLY TRINITY MEN’S GROUP

We will be meeting at the usual, Ricky's Restaurant, 2160 King George Boulevard, Surrey in the private room.

SPRING Fundraiser PLANNING MEETING
Wednesday, April 26th, 9:30 a.m.

Spring is here, and it’s time to think about our spring fundraiser.  Please come to this planning meeting and bring your ideas, new or old, for discussion!  Will we have a Strawberry Tea? Shall we simplify the menu? Or a Barbeque, or maybe a big Garage Sale - maybe combination of all of the above!  Come and toss around some ideas!

This Joyful Eastertide

The church calendar gives us seven weeks in which we can celebrate the promise and power of the Resurrection!  The liturgical colour remains white, we add an “Alleluia” to the dismissal at the end of church and the Paschal candle burns throughout.  During this time, we try to make sure that as many of our congregation as possible have an opportunity to receive their Easter communion.  If you know of anybody who is unable to get to church and who would like one of our eucharistic ministers to visit them, please have a word with one of the clergy.  Remember that the Easter season closes with Pentecost (Sunday, June 4th) and our tradition is to wear something red that day to acknowledge the rich outpouring of the Holy Spirit!

Food bank!

The largest donations to the Food Bank are, not surprisingly, at Thanksgiving and Christmas.  But hunger knows no season and it is important to express our support in the other seasons as well.  So we are asking everybody to help support our local food bank by bringing in non-perishable items.
 

             Top Ten Needed Food Items:

  1. Large cans of powdered Baby Formula
  2. Canned Fish/Meat (e.g. tuna, ham, turkey)
  3. Healthy Cereal (Hot or Cold)
  4. Meals in a Tin (e.g. Pork n’ Beans or Stew)
  5. Canned Vegetables
  6. Canned Fruit
  7. Wholegrain Pasta/Rice
  8. Pasta Sauces
  9. Canned and Dry Soups
  10. Mac & Cheese

 

Thank you for your ongoing support of the Food Bank!

April 2017 Update: PWRDF responds to floods in Peru

PWRDF has announced a $20,000 emergency grant in support of the rapid response work of ACT Alliance forum members in the face of devastating floods, landslides and mudslides in Peru.

The worst flooding since 1998 is scouring the arid landscape of coastal Peru. This phenomenon has been affecting the country since January 2017. In February, the ACT Secretariat sent a relief grant of $59,072 US to respond to the emergency.  But the situation has continued to worsen, leading the ACT Secretariat to yesterday approve an additional grant of $90,880 US, bringing the total contribution to $149,952 US.

ACT members and local partners are providing humanitarian assistance in the regions of Ica and La Libertad, in the villages of Salitral, Morropon, Huancabamba and Huarmaca. This four-month intervention is targeting 680 affected households with food, temporary shelter and hygiene kits. The project will also focus on community mobilizing and community-based psycho-social care. 

You can support PWRDF's ongoing relief work with your generous envelope donations. For more about this story go to www.pwrdf.org.
