Jesús Cruz Arángo - Custodian
Jesús has been a member of our staff since May 2011. He is the person responsible for the immaculate condition of the interior of our building.
“One of the things that we at Holy Trinity, Thornhill, do well is to look after our property. If you walk through the halls outside the office or along the corridor leading into the church, if you wander into the auditorium, be it in the winter or summer, the floors are sparkling. It is not that people do not work here, or that people do not visit. It is because Jesús can be found in our building Monday to Friday.”
