The Eastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada inspires us to help our neighbours. Read about their Palm Sunday Challenge on social media #espalmsunday2022

Instead of palm branches we encourage you to wave socks! We are collecting good-as-new socks for men, women and children to share at our “Bowls and Blessings” outreach program. Please bring them to church in the weeks leading up to Palm Sunday, April 10, 2022.

2011 Harfentoene at MLC PalmsundayThe Harfentöne Men’s Choir was founded in 1929 by Father Paul Stroh as a German male voice choir under the name of “St. Patrickchor” based out of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church on McCaul Street in downtown Toronto. When the choir was revived after the Second World War in 1949 by Father Daniel Ehmann, he named it “Harfentöne”. In 1959, they joined the Deutsch-Kanadischer Sängerbund (German Canadian Choir Association) and participated in many of their events.

Since Sept. 2017 Linda Marcinkus has been the conductor. In October 2019, the choir celebrated their 90th Anniversary. It is their hope that the choir will be able to delight faithful audiences with a rich repertoire of songs for many years to come.

The sermon and announcements will be recorded live and later archived as YouTube videos on our Online Worship webpage.

Listen to our German radio devotions which air every Sunday at 9:30 am live on CHLO Radio station AM 530 (a multilingual radio station) and later archived as a podcast recording on our Radio Devotion webpage.
