Cannon Donald Butler

The Rev. Canon Donald Butler
Canon Donald joined Trinity Anglican Church as the new Incumbent March 2012 and brings with him a new and exciting energy.  Canon Butler has a rich and diverse history graduating from Codrington College and The University of the West Indies in 1984. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1985 and installed as Canon at the St. James Cathedral, Toronto September of 2009.  Prior to joining us at Trinity, Canon Butler offered his time and expertise to the Metropolitan Police Steering Committee on Community Policing, Youth Link Scarborough and the Malvern Community Network to name just a few.  Canon Donald comes to Trinity after over twenty years of being the Incumbent at the Church of The Nativity in Malvern. Under his leadership the church grew to a vibrant community of worship. Canon Butler is passionate about guiding and nurturing our young people to reach their potential.  He focuses on ways to harness their energies and engage them in meaningful activities.  Canon Donald believes in fostering growth and spiritual development of the congregation through outreach and development programs.
Canon Donald's schedule is flexible to allow for evening meetings and pastoral needs and he can be reached through the Church Office or email him at

Honorary Retired Clergy
We are blessed to have retired Rev. Canon Frances Lightbourn as part of our parish community. She brings a wealth of experience to Trinity and we are very fortunate to have her.

The Wardens are lay people who play a particularly important role in the life of our church community. They are responsible for many of the day to day business aspects of running a parish. They also act with the Incumbent to form the corporate entity of the church. Although they technically have different titles, between them they share the responsibilities equally.
