Ecumenical Brunch

The Anglican-Roman Catholic Dialogue has recently produced a resource of true ecumenical stories with commentary and discussion questions designed to accessibly engage people at the local level in the work of the national and international ecumenical movement. It is called New Stories to Tell: Living Ecumenism Today (you can see it at Several of the stories are available in both English and French. We highly encourage our parishioners to visit the link and explore some of the materials.

With intention to broaden our ecumenical outreach on Sunday, April 28th during the 10:30AM service the Rev. Scott Sharman will be delivering a brief talk on the work of this Dialogue Group within Canada as well as introducing the congregation to the stories which are included within the new resource. After the service, St. Thomas d’Aquin would like to invite Holy Trinity parishioners over for brunch in the St. Thomas parish hall to meet each other, and to consider the story commentary and discussion questions together.

Need a Ride? Rev. Danielle will have some space in her vehicle to help bring people to and from St. Thomas d’Aquin at the conclusion of our service. Please let her know if you are interested in attending! If you have a ride with a few extra seats to also help people get to and from the venue, please let Rev. Danielle know.
