He has returned to his apartment in Richmond Hill and started back to work last Monday. This has been a long journey and we are so very thankful for the Power of Prayer and all of the support from our Trinity Church Family🙏!

Prayer Request and Pastoral Care
If you have a prayer request, please call the church office at (705)738-5135 and we will pass your request through to our active Prayer Circle and Pastoral Care Teams.
When we celebrated Jesus' baptism, we used stones as symbols of things we need to let go of, and as signs of our commitment to walk with God. Lose yours? Gave it away? There are more on the table in the narthex. Please enjoy and share!
With thanks, Rev. Dr. Bob Root
