Holy Trinity has a trick up its sleeve

Quality time was the name of the game for Holy Trinity Lucan parishioners and the residents at Prince George Retirement Residence on April 28.

Together they sang gospel songs and enjoyed each other’s company while Sunday School teachers and children made art for each resident’s room. Between songs there was plenty of time for conversation, and even a trick or two. Ten-year-old Evan Jackman Snider found a large deck of cards and started performing a little sleight-of-hand.

As part of the Diocese’s Mission and Ministry Plan, Holy Trinity identified the seniors in their community as a group in need of fellowship and outreach. It was a lovely visit which included a lot of chuckles and smiles. Holy Trinity plans on making this after-service outing a tradition with the goal of visiting every season.
