Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2018
Thursday, January 18, 2018 to Thursday, January 25, 2018
The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is an international Christian ecumenical observance kept annually between January 18 and January 25. It is an octave, that is, an observance lasting eight days.
The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity began in 1908 as the Octave of Christian Unity, and focused on prayer for church unity. The dates of the week were proposed by Father Paul Wattson, cofounder of the Graymoor Franciscan Friars. He conceived of the week beginning on the Feast of the Confession of Peter, the Protestant variant of the ancient Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter, on January 18, and concluding with the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul on January 25.
We invite you to share in the 2018 Lenten email series from Episcopal Relief & Development. Each day during Lent you will receive a daily reflection, co-authored by a group of faith leaders from across the church. During this season of reflection on our Christian faith, their writings will enhance your spiritual journey as they both inspire and challenge you. Each daily meditation is presented in both English and Spanish.

Come serve your community!
Looking for something to give your loved ones at Valentine's Day and for confirmation, baptism, and later on this spring, graduation? What about gifts for upcoming birthdays, anniversaries, and other special days?
All that shopping takes time and energy.

The solution is at Trinity Episcopal Church, thanks to the Episcopal Churchwomen.

Also, you can say goodbye to flipping through expensive, mass-produced cards in hopes of finding the right one to send thanks, birthday greetings, congratulations, or condolences or to say "Happy Easter" or "I'm thinking of you."

That problem, too, has also been solved by Trinity's ECW.

Packs of beautiful notecards featuring a design of Trinity Church are for sale in the Trinity Church office.

The original pen-and-ink/watercolor design that inspired the notecards is framed and hanging in Kuehnle Hall of Trinity Church. It is by award-winning artist Will Smith Jr. of New Orleans and Natchez, who grew up attending and loving Trinity Church.

Notecards with matching envelopes are available in packs of five for $10.

Proceeds from the notecard sales benefit outreach programs of Trinity's Episcopal Churchwomen and help celebrate Trinity Church's 200th anniversary, 1822-2022. 

"We are delighted to offer these special notecards," said Phebe Winters, co-chairman with Cyndy Stevens of Trinity's ECW.

"They are not only lovely but practical, and the money the sales generate will be put to good use helping people in our community."

A Prayer For This Week

O Eternal God, bless all schools, colleges, and universities and especially Trinity Episcopal Day School, that they may be lively centers for sound learning, new discovery, and the pursuit of wisdom; and grant that those who teach and those who learn may find you to be the source of all truth; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
