Noon Lunch needs help picking up donated produce from the Staunton Farmers’ Market each Saturday through November 18.  Teams of two meet at the market just prior to closing (about 11:55) and accept donated produce.  They then take it to Trinity and store it in the refrigerator so it can be used by the cooks the following week.  They then email Carter Hannah  what was collected.  This job takes about an hour and your help on one Saturday or many will be greatly appreciated. Contact Carter Hannah (540-241-8735 or Kathy Schneiderman ( and we will gratefully put you on the calendar.

July 9 Bulletin Announcements
Sabbatical update: With Rev. Becky now on her way to Holy Innocents, there will be a few changes to Fr. Paul's sabbatical plans. Paul and Lee will still be away from Trinity from August 15 until December 15. Sunday services will be covered by supply priests from around the diocese. Pastoral care will be coordinated with the Rev. Anne Grizzle. Senior Warden Lundy Pentz and Junior Warden Erik Boody will oversee parish leadership, and Treasurer Tom Fechtel parish finances, with the help of the Vestry. Things will actually seem very normal! More details will be in the August Trinity Tribune before the sabbatical begins.
Trinity’s International Mission for Education (TIME) is our response to the challenge of ending poverty by providing educational opportunity, which allows access to information, to skill development, to job possibilities, to informed choices, to possibilities for improvement individually and collectively.
