We Celebrate The Presence Of Jesus

Offertory Hymn: This Is My Father`s World

1. This is my Father’s world, and to my listening ears
All nature sings, and round me rings the music of the spheres.
This is my Father’s world: I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas;
His hand the wonders wrought.

2. This is my Father’s world, the birds their carols raise,
The morning light, the lily white, declare their Maker’s praise.
This is my Father’s world: He shines in all that’s fair;
In the rustling grass I hear Him pass;
He speaks to me everywhere.

 3. This is my Father’s world. O let me ne’er forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.
This is my Father’s world: the battle is not done;
Jesus who died shall be satisfied,
And earth and heaven be one.

Some Frequently Asked Questions

About Trinity’s GIFT Appeal

Why five-year pledges, not one-time donations? Pledges provide us with the opportunity to make a more significant gift to the mission of the Church.  It is easier to make a significant contribution, over and above regular offerings, by making a pledge to be fulfilled during a period of time rather than all at once. Our pledges are not legally binding but rather a statement of intention.


When will the parish begin to receive funds?

As donations are made, the 50% parish share will be paid out monthly by the GIFT campaign office.


 “As a form of ministry, fundraising is as spiritual as giving a sermon, entering a time of prayer, visiting the sick or feeding the hungry.”

-Rev. Henri Nouwen, Dutch-Canadian priest and author
