The rector of Holy Myrrhbearers Orthodox Mission is the Very Rev Fr Geoffrey Ready, who is also Co-Director of the Orthodox School of Theology and Director of the Master of Divinity programme.
On Tuesdays at 7pm, either Daily Vespers or an Akathist is served as the first part of the Orthodox Christian Fellowship meeting.
On Thursdays at 6.15pm Daily Vespers is served before the evening class.

Students are welcome to drop by during office hours or by appointment to discuss their concerns or spiritual needs.
Under the patronage of St George the Great Martyr, students of the University of Toronto's St George Campus have established a chapter of the Orthodox Christian Fellowship (OCF). The fellowship strives to provide students with an active community of fellow Orthodox Christians, offering the chance to explore, express their faith, as well as inquire. Students of the Orthodox School of Theology at Trinity College are invited to join and support this group.
Weekly fellowship meetings are held every Tuesday at 7pm, offering food, lively discussion, prayer, and a variety of other activities, as well as many other events throughout the year.
