Many, many thanks for the wonderful celebration of the 50th anniversary of my ordination!  It was such a special time and I feel quite humbled by the outpouring of love.  Thank you to everyone who did so much to make it a special time.  The picture and signatures are terrific, as is Walter's song and Nicolette's cake.  Trinity knows how to party!  The powder blue suit has been put away!  Blessings, Bob


A Huge THANK YOU to ...

all the dedicated bakers and wonderful sandwich makers who assisted to make Steve Oliver’s "Celebration of Life" such a wonderful success! Steve’s family and friends were very appreciative. A huge thank you to John and Armand for manning the dishwasher until the job was completed and never complained about the extreme heat. An enormous thank you to Kevin for all his hard work moving everything out of Trinity Hall and setting up all the tables and chairs. Finally, a gigantic thank you to everyone who stayed until the end in order to ensure everything was ready for Respite Wednesday morning! Karen Foote
