The people of The United Church of Canada express our profound grief at the tragic events in James Smith Cree Nation and the nearby village of Weldon, Saskatchewan. Moderator Carmen Lansdowne, expressed her pain on hearing of these attacks and committed her ongoing prayers for “the families of the victims, and survivors as they deal with the resulting trauma.” Read the full news story.  


The Trinity Youth Group met on Sunday at the church last Sunday for their annual ladder ball game and the parents won! They enjoyed pizza after!

On Friday, September 16, Trinity’s Garden Committee celebrated the fall harvest with our gardeners. With approximately 125 persons (about half were children) in the Lower Hall due to the rainy conditions outside, there was a buzz of excitement as all participated in a meal of hot dogs, chips, veggies, and drinks.  Tim Horton’s donation of hot chocolate and timbits was very much appreciated. The children enjoyed a craft table and games. Gratitude was expressed by many of the gardeners for the opportunity that they have to be a part of Trinity’s Community Garden. Besides growing their own vegetables, the garden provides them with a purpose and means of being part of the community.
