Rector - The Revd Karl Przywala
 (pronounced PR-VOW-ER) was born in Birmingham, England in 1963; having spent his thirties living in Australia, he is now spending his fifties in Canada. He was at Durham University in the 1980s and trained for ordination whilst in Australia. He was formerly a Church of England Lay Reader and so knows the value of lay ministry. Karl finds art, music, film and literature can be both relaxing and stimulating; recently, he’s been drawn toward reading and watching historical and crime fiction.

Karl sees the challenge and privilege of being entrusted with leadership at Holy Trinity as “the highlight of my ministry to date.” Biblical preaching and teaching has always been at the heart of his ministry and his prayer for Holy Trinity Anglican Church is that we will continue to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ” (2nd Peter 3:18).

Parish Administrator - Sharon Grove has served as Rector's Assistant and Parish Administrator at Holy Trinity since 2008. Under the Rector's supervision, she oversees day-to-day management of our multi-purpose building, as well as providing secretarial and support services to the parish. Sharon has many years' experience in commerce, administration and church work; she volunteers at her home parish, St. Cuthbert's, North Delta.


Rector's Warden - Dr Margaret Blom was drawn to Holy Trinity over 20 years ago because of its strong traditional theological position, its Book of Common Prayer services, and the friendliness of its congregation. She says, “The articulate Sunday morning sermons always clearly explicate the biblical text, are intellectually stimulating and provide an excellent way to start the week, as does the sense of belonging to a warm, united, active Christian community – come and join us!”




People's Warden - Nova Leaf found a welcoming spiritual home at Holy Trinity for her family when they arrived back in Canada to live in the local neighbourhood, after being abroad for many years. The Holy Trinity community has provided a place of encouragement and strong spiritual support while raising a family. Nova treasures the opportunity every week to centre and re-focus, through worship and reflection, all the everyday responsibilities of family, work, and community service. Christ-centred teaching, that strengthens understanding of what it means to live life as a follower of the Way, along with open-hearted community, shared music, and prayer, are key elements of worshipping at Holy Trinity that continue to strengthen her in her walk of faith.

People's Warden 
- Dr Larry Sackney was drawn to Holy Trinity after moving from Saskatoon over ten years ago. He says, “In particular, Kay and I were pleased with Holy Trinity’s Book of Common Prayer services and the sense of belonging to a warm and welcoming community.

Music Director - Dr Michael Park was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, where he learned to play the organ at Holy Trinity Anglican Church. Now, at his second HTAC, in Vancouver, he is excited to lead the music ministry through organ, piano and singing.

Michael can most often be found at a piano, playing for dance classes, teaching, or playing in concerts. He's passionate about the powerful connection between words and music, and has composed an interactive opera about diabetes. Aside from music, Michael spends his time learning Spanish, knitting, and reading anything that can make him laugh out loud on the bus.
