About Trinity Village

Trinity Village is a not-for-profit charitable organization owned by Lutheran Homes Kitchener- Waterloo, a ministry of the Eastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada. Comprised of the Terraces, the Studios, the Care Centre, and the Adult Day Program, Trinity Village is designed to offer progressive stages of living and specialized care.


At Trinity Village, our mission is to be a caring community that values and fosters the worth and lifestyle of all.


The Grand Parade is our biggest annual fundraising event we participate in. It is a fundraising walk for those who live, work, visit, and are friends of Trinity Village.


This year we will be raising money to ENHANCE RESIDENT ACCESSIBILITY for all entries at the Care Centre and to expand the Studios Tuck Shop service for easier access to everyday items.



Join team Trinity Village in this walk and give generously to support this project by clicking the "Register" and the “Donate” buttons above.



We're better together!
