Throughout Lent, please consider a SPECIAL OFFERING in support of the mission of Episcopal Relief and Development (ERD). Read more about the work and mission of ERD here. Trinity Episcopal is offering “Hope Chests” (mite boxes) to encourage donations to ERD. You will find the mite boxes on the table in the church entryway. 

 

Lenten Meditation guides are available on the table in the narthex.  There are several to choose from:  one for teens and young adults, one for adults, and one for adults or families.  Please choose one that you feel will enrich your devotional time during this penitential season.

 

Prayer Partners- Here is a suggested prayer you might use during Lent as you pray for your Prayer Partner- "Lord, I remember (name) today. Keep him/her safe and out of harm's way. Walk beside (name) on his/her journey. May he/she know that he/she is never alone. In Christ's name, Amen."

 

Creation Care and Creativity is the theme for this year’s Lenten series program for children and youth.  Participants will learn and discuss how they can help care for creation and will work together to create a work of art using plastic bottle caps, which normally cannot be recycled.  The mural, to be completed by Earth Day, will be displayed in the church, location to be determined.

Trinity Church has contracted to have a new, HANDICAPPED-ACCESSIBLE BATHROOM built on the Barber Hall level of the church. It will use about half of one of the storage closets and will have an entrance directly from Barber Hall. The cost of this work is estimated to be between $40,000 and $42,000. The Vestry is still deciding what accounts to use to pay for the bathroom. Donations to help with the cost are welcome. Anyone wishing to donate may do so by writing a check to Trinity Church with “Bathroom” in the memo and sending it to Trinity Church at your convenience.
