Please welcome Muffie back to the staff!

They are available for $1 each on the table at the back of the church and in the copy room of the parish house.
Sallie Meffert recently donated a Prayer Bowl to Trinity Church in thanksgiving for all the prayers she received during her cancer treatment. The Prayer Bowl is a wonderfully simple way of sharing intercessions. When you need a prayer for yourself or another, write it on a card and put it in the bowl. When you put your card in, take a card out and pray for the person on it. That we we create a reservoir of prayer for each other! The Prayer Bowl, along with cards and pencils, is kept in the Nativity Chapel beside the pulpit.
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 Muffie Newell and 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
before the sabbatical begins.
Mass on the Grass:
Join us each Wednesday
through August 9
at 6 p.m. throughout the summer for an informal outdoor worship service and potluck supper.
