Still celebrating after 100 years

Holy Trinity Anglican Church thrives even after 2005 fire

Holy Trinity Anglican church at 1962 Murray Road in Sooke continues to celebrate number  100.

The church burned down in 2005, rebuilt, revived and valiantly restored itself.

The next birthday event is a Harvest Dinner & Silent Auction to take place at the Royal Canadian Legion on November 9, 2013.  To serve the delicious roast beef dinner, we are honoured to have the assistance of the Cadets of the Sooke Navy League.  Like the church, these young people know the value of community service.

The Silent Auction will have great variety on display. In addition to party baskets and individual items, there will be a motorized scooter (or two), a walker, filing cabinet, paper shredder, sewing machine and other articles for house and garden.

All are welcome.  Tickets are available at $20 each at the church, at South Shore Gallery and Shoppers Drug Mart.

Holy Trinity is proud to continue its mission of “People caring for people…  in the light of Christian love.”
