Beloved Siblings in Christ,
We are pleased to announce that we officially have a time and date for our Celebration of New Ministry! This is a service that typically takes place within months of a rector's installation. Originally planned for spring of 2020, the pandemic put those plans on hold. In the intervening time, we have gained Mo. Cheryl and Fr. Chris so Fr. Lee has asked that this be a celebration of the ministries of all Trinity clergy and staff. Join us on Wednesday, September 1st at 6:00pm for the Celebration of New Ministry, followed by a casual meal provided by the Brotherhood.
As we gear up for another school year, we want to help support our teachers in public education who struggle with lack of funding. Below you will find the wish lists of our teachers throughout the metro area. We encourage you to have a look and see if you're able to help fund some of the items they need to complete their classrooms!
Speaking of school, it's almost time for the Back to School Blessing on August 15th. Teachers, administrators and students will be invited to take part in a special blessing during all services, and each will take home a small gift from the church. We will also have a table set up in the Great Hall to make "You are Loved" bag tags, to share God's love throughout the school year.
Next week Deacon Deborah's class "Church Cracked Open" will begin via zoom. You may sign up for this class, or any of our fall adult Christian formation offerings on the website. There are both zoom and in-person options available. Whether you're interested in meditation, bible study, book & video discussions, or something about current events and theology, there is something for you.
We appreciate the efforts everyone has put in to masking while in the church. While continue to keep an eye on the trends, and may make adjustments to our covid policies in the future, we are so proud of this community choosing to mask up for safety. Thank you!
Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others.
The clergy and staff of Trinity Episcopal Church +
