Message from TSP Board

October  1, 2020
 
Dear neighbours and friends, 
 
In June, the Church Board of Trinity-St. Paul's decided that we would resume in-person Sunday worship on September  13th, provided that Toronto had been in Stage Three of the Government of Ontario's framework for reopening the province for three consecutive weeks. Staff and volunteer leaders at TSP have been watching Toronto's daily COVID-19 case counts and other developments closely for the past weeks. We have been particularly conscious this week that the Ontario Hospital Association has urged all houses of worship to suspend in-person worship, and Toronto Medical Officer of Health,  Dr. Eileen de Villa's, urging that we limit our contacts outside of our households as much as possible. It is with deep regret that I am writing to let you know that the  Church Board held an emergency vote on Tuesday and has decided to suspend in-person worship.  It is clear to the Board that it is no longer safe to gather in-person. 
 
We will continue to live stream Sunday worship on Facebook this week. However, we are excited to be transitioning to worshipping on Zoom in the coming weeks. Using Zoom will help us maintain the sense of community that we get when we gather in person. The recordings of our Zoom worship will still be posted on our Facebook and Youtube pages. However, I would like to personally invite you to join us live each Sunday morning at 10:30. Please e-mail pgade@trinitystpauls.ca if you would like to join our e-mail list and get the weekly Zoom invitation.
 
It is sad to be shutting our doors for Sunday worship again, but please know that we are indeed open and ready to serve our community. If there is anything you need, please do not hesitate to contact me at chair@trinitystpauls.ca.
 
Wishing you health and peace, 
Colin Phillips
Chair of the Church Board
