Aboriginal Initiative

We acknowledge that we worship on the traditional territories of the Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, and the Michi Sagiit Nishnaabeg, with our nearest neighbours being the Chippewas of Georgina Island.  For thousands of years, these Indigenous Peoples developed their knowledge, wisdom, and spiritual practices in caring for this planet so that their grandchildren’s grandchildren may also benefit from the gifts of Mother Earth.  We appreciate the teachings about respectfully connecting with all Human Beings and with all non-human Beings as relatives.  We also appreciate the teachings about putting into practice the principles of an Honourable Harvest.  It is good to walk beside Indigenous Peoples giving Creator/Gitchi Manidoo thanks for the many gifts of Mother Earth which sustain us each day.

Water

Good News!

On February 27, 2024, the water truck arrived at Kingfisher Lake First Nation after the ice road was opened for light traffic.   

Once again, thank you to those who contributed to Advent Conspiracy 2023 - YOU MADE DIFFERENCE!

spirit garden (Opening 2024)

SPIRIT GARDEN will open in 2024 at Nathan Phillips Square beside Toronto City Hall.  SPIRIT GARDEN answers the Truth and Reconciliation Call to Action # 82, constructing a Memorial to Residential School Survivors as well as to the children and youth who attended residential schools in Ontario but did not return to their families or First Nation communities.  Nathan Phillips Square is an accessible and very visible location to celebrate the resiliency of survivors, their families, and their communities.  Space is available for teaching events and interactive learning activities. 

Although Trinity is experiencing financial difficulties as many other Anglican Churches are having currently, and the negative impact of inflation on household income, members of Trinity have been very generous over the years in supporting efforts to build the right relationships with Indigenous  Peoples.  Members of Trinity also know how even small gifts accumulate over time and accomplish much in the ongoing work of Reconciliation.  Please donate to Trinity Anglican Church in Aurora designated as FAITH WORKS SPIRIT GARDEN.
