PARISH MAGAZINE, APRIL, 1909. HOLY WEEK AND EASIER, The minds of all true Church people are now directed towards the most sacred events which are commemorated during Holy Week and on Easter Day. Services have been arranged in the Churches which it is hoped will be helpful to all who desire to observe this season as the Church directs. The clearest call of the Church at this season is that all should partake of the Holy Communion on Easter Day, but the Church is equally de¬ finite with regard to careful preparation on the part of all who avail themselves of the highest privilege of the Christian religion. With this aim in view there will be special services daily in the Churches of this Parish, the details of which we give below, and we make our appeal to all to make an effort to avail themselves of the privileges offered to them. * * * HOLY TRINITY CHURCH.
