Help Us Raise The Roof!

Our old building needs new roofing, and we need everyone’s help to make it happen.  To kick start the fundraising, our Rector, the noted theologian and award-winning preacher, is planning to set a record for the world’s longest sermon(Well, maybe not quite that long – the current record is for 53 hrs and 18 minutes!)

Neil will be preaching on Saturday, May 20th from 2:00 p.m. to 5:20 p.m.  – a total of 200 minutes.  Your part is to attend church during that time to support and encourage him with water and throat lozenges!  Feel free to come and go as you wish. 

Please sponsor our Rector - the rate is $10 per minute –  so you can choose the length of time suitable to your personal financial situation, or, if you prefer, you can make a flat donation.  All money will go directly to the ‘Raise the Roof’ fund, and all donations are eligible for an income tax receipt.

Keep those pledges rolling in!  We’ve now reached over $7,800 – keep an eye on the ‘progress board’ in the library.  Please give your cash or cheque directly to the Rector so he can keep track.  Cheques should be made payable to “Church of the Holy Trinity” with “Building” in the memo line!
