Residents, staff and special guests gathered Nov. 22 for an afternoon reception and program to mark the fifth anniversary of a faith-based independent living and personal care seniors’ residence in southeast Saskatoon.

Trinity Manor at Stonebridge is an Emmanuel Care facility that was first initiated in response to an ongoing community need for seniors’ housing — including for retired members of a number of religious orders of sisters, brothers and priests. Emmanuel Care has now expanded the Trinity Manor vision to Regina as well.

Trinity Manor resident Bishop Emeritus Gerald Wiesner, OMI, offered a prayer to open the afternoon program Nov. 22, 2019, which included greetings from Archbishop Donald Bolen of Regina (who was bishop of Saskatoon when the residence opened), as well as by Bishop Mark Hagemoen of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon; Bishop Bryan Bayda, CSsR, of the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Saskatoon; and Scott Irwin of Emmanuel Care.

Trinity Manor board chair Doug Vaughn, Executive Director Suzanne Turmel and Director of Life Enhancement Jamie Donlevy also spoke during the program, and made presentations to staff and residents marking five years at the Saskatoon facility.
