NEW! – Latest Covid Update (Source - HKPR District Health Unit)

As of March 21, 2022 more Covid restrictions are being lifted in Ontario. We have examined the Covid changes and the following items impact life at Trinity and Providence Churches.

· The requirement to wear masks in most indoor public settings will be lifted.

· Mask use will be a personal choice. People who feel more comfortable wearing a mask are encouraged to do so.

· Please show kindness and respect for the choices that individuals make.

· Capacity limits at organized public events are no longer in effect. No gathering limits are in effect for weddings, funerals, or religious services.

· Physical distancing should be continued where possible.

With the cooperation of our church family, we have maintained a safe place over the last two years. Please continue to follow safe practices and be considerate to others as we move through this period of transition together. We sincerely thank you!
