News from Trinity's Reopening Committee

We sincerely thank the members of our congregation for following the protocols that have been put in place so that we can successfully have Sunday Church Services again. Worshiping together is wonderful! We also thank the many volunteers who have helped with screening, recording contact information, ushering and running the technology equipment. The sense of teamwork is so appreciated!

With cooler and more inclement weather approaching, we will modify our entry procedures. When necessary, we will ask people to enter by Trinity Hall where you will be met by the screeners, then proceed to the narthex. Hopefully, this change eliminates anyone having to wait outside in the cold. Families, who have someone with mobility issues, will continue to be welcomed at the front door.

Stay tuned as the Reopening Committee reviews recent documents from the Government of Ontario and the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit.

News from the Knitting Group

The Knitting Group has returned to Trinity! New members are welcome as projects are created for shut-ins and various people in need. The Knitting Group will meet every second Tuesday and the dates will be posted under “Special Activities This Week at Trinity”. Covid Protocols must be followed (signing the contact sheet upon entry, hand sanitizing, wearing masks and maintaining proper social distance). For further information about the Knitting Group, contact Gail Lewis at 705-738-1279. Next meeting November 30th @ 2 p.m.


Dear Friends,

The healing Ministry is being organized to resume on Wednesday, November 3rd and will be open every Wednesday for 6 weeks. We just have two practitioners at the moment, Beth Halliday and myself, and we will need to take extra time between clients to disinfect our tables, etc. Therefore, we have spots for only 6 clients each week. We will book appointments for you to attend every other Wednesday. That way, we can accommodate more people in a 2-week period.

We are only able to accept registration for those who have been fully vaccinated and we will need to see proof of that at your first appointment. This is for our safety and for that of the clients.

Please call Carol Wells-Gordon at 705-731-0455 to book an appointment. Beth and I are very excited to be able to offer Reiki once again. We look forward to seeing you soon.

With the new year coming shortly, I’ll be preparing the 2022 envelope boxes which will be ready for pick up soon. I wanted to inquire whether you still would like to receive the offering boxes as usual.

Some have decided to continue with their offerings via e-transfer, some have decided to continue using their regular envelopes and some still are preparing monthly cheques. (PAR is always the preferred option.)

If you usually donate using offering envelopes and you would NOT like to receive a box of envelopes for 2022, please let me know, so that you may donate to the church using the method best suited to you.
