FOR YOUR INFORMATION

GOODBYE TO TRINITY UNITED’S REV. FOSTER FREED

 

 With the upcoming retirement of Reverend Foster Freed this month,

 June 28th will be his last official Sunday with us.

We had hoped to honour him with a significant gathering but,

under the current health guidelines, that is not an event we can host at this time.

 

However, not wanting to let his departure pass without some sort of timely fanfare, we have arranged a “drive-by farewell parade”.

On Sunday, June 28th, at 2 PM we invite you to drive through the church parking lot. Brad and Sue will be there to help direct traffic so please watch for directional signs.

 

In order to limit social contact, cards and messages for Foster can be deposited in a basket at the entry point (no money please). Foster will be situated near the exit where you can stop for a few moments to pass on good wishes and say farewell. 

 

Please feel free to pass this invitation on to anyone in the community you think may be interested. If you are unable be there but still want to pass on a message, you can drop notes off at the Church, through the mail slot, and they will be passed on. Hope to see you there!

PILGRIMAGE

 

It seems more than ever an act of faith to offer to lead a pilgrimage to the Holy Land next Spring in spite of present pandemic anxieties. However, having never been to the land of our Saviour's life, I'm both inspired and hopeful and encourage you to prayerfully consider joining us. 

This is a full itinerary with a Canadian company that has plenty of experience, competitive pricing. All the details are in the poster attached below.

 

God bless you and your families. 

I hope I might have the privilege of prayerfully guiding you  next April in the the footsteps of Jesus.

Pastor of St. Rose of Lima and Our Lady of the Rosary.
