Thank You!
Thank you to all of the many, many people who worked hard -- behind the scenes and during our worship services as well -- to make our Holy Week and Easter services a success, and to all who attended services in-person and joined in from home. We were very grateful for the opportunity to be together in-person and that we have the option to reach each other virtually during this time, too. All of the services that streamed last week can be found by clicking here.
Easter Lily Memorials and Honoraria
Thank you to all who purchased lilies as memorials or honoraria to decorate the Cathedral at Easter. Thank you for your gifts and your dedication to our Cathedral. Additional funds raised from the purchases of the lilies will go to our outreach ministry, especially Homeless No More which is in dire need of assistance during the pandemic. 

A list of all who donated can be found at trinitysc.org/easterlily. If you have any questions, please contact Nan Sammataro (nansammataro@hotmail.com). Many thanks as well to Nan and the DHC for coordinating the Easter Lilies again this year!
Usher Captains
If you serve as an usher captain, please contact West Summers (803.587.5845) to discuss starting usher duties during services, as well as a new 2021 schedule. As soon as the new schedule is finalized, it will be shared in the Tidings and on our website.

Family Sunday School resumes this weekend at 10 am on Sunday, April 11 in Cart Courtyard. Join us this Sunday to hear beautiful scripture in The Story of the Easter Bunny.

United Thank Offering Spring Ingathering
The United Thank Offering Spring Ingathering will be held on Sunday, May 2nd. Through the UTO, we nurture the habit of giving daily thanks to God. These prayers of thanksgiving start when we recognize and name our many daily blessings. Those who participate in the United Thank Offering have discovered that thankfulness leads to generosity. UTO combines these generous offerings to fund significant projects that make a real difference in the work of the Episcopal Church and a real difference in people's lives.

If you would like a Blue Box mailed to you to collect offerings, please contact Kenzie Newton at (kenziebrunson@yahoo.com). Offerings can also be mailed to Trinity (1100 Sumter St, 29201; make checks payable to Trinity Cathedral and note DHC - UTO Ingathering in the memo line), or you may click here to make your offering online (be sure to select United Thank Offering from the drop-down box on the page).
Church Women United
Due to the continuing pandemic, it has become necessary to cancel the Salad, Sweets and Sisterhood Luncheon that was scheduled for Saturday, April 10. Our Friendship Day Meeting, scheduled for May 7, has also been cancelled. However, in April we will be collecting monetary donations for our annual health hygiene kit drive for the homeless in our community.
