Chapel of the Resurrection: the Columbarium
Summer is a time for rest and retreat—yet it’s also a great time to update your personal estate plans. Should you wish to have your ashes committed at Grace & Holy Trinity church, the policies related to the Columbarium are available by downloading these documents . The clergy are happy to talk with you about your plans and you are encouraged to keep pertinent information on file in the church office.

Parishioners in the News
Do you have good news to share with your church family? Please let us know! Two families from Grace and Holy Trinity were recently featured in neighborhood publications. You can read more about the Telfian family and the Lord-Pawson family by downloading these articles. We are so thankful that both talked about their GHTC involvement, which led to this article on the Red Door Ministry.

Lego Donations Needed
Our Christian Ed supplies are in need of Legos for our parish’s children to use in educational play. Any Legos at home you are tired of stepping on, or that your kids have outgrown? Please consider donating them to Grace & Holy Trinity’s Christian Ed program. Donations can be dropped off at Aaron Davis’s office at the church, and he is happy to answer any questions you might have via email or at 804-359-5628 ext. 15.

Red Door, Campus Ministry, CirclesRVA, Belize missions, and the general work of the church have all benefitted this year. Here are a handful of additional volunteer opportunities for the summer and the contact person:

Feed My Rams on Wednesdays Begins Aug. 21
One of the best ways that GHTC continues to support our neighbors at VCU is by feeding college students during our Wednesday Lunch program SeRVAnt. This fall we have planned the menu for the semester and are asking individuals to sign up to bring enough of each item, vegan/vegetarian entrees, sides, dessert and drinks for 5-10 students. If you aren’t sure how to make an item you can click on the document and it will take you to a recipe. If you have questions or concerns you can contact The Rev. Kim Reinholz . Food can be dropped off on Sunday or delivered on Wednesday; you can also donate the cost of food and we will purchase the items for you. This is the most direct way that GHTC supports campus ministry whose program budget is provided by The Episcopal Diocese of Virginia. Sign up here Thank you for your continued support of Episcopal Campus Ministry at VCU.
