Word from the Sr. Warden
 This missive is a follow up to the letters you received from Fr. Paul and myself in March regarding upcoming changes to Trinity management and worship. We want to keep you all updated on the progress of our transition to Vestry responsibility and worship services with supply priest and lay-led worship teams.
 As Amador County vaccination is progressing, we look forward to safe re-opening. To help us in our planning, the Vestry members have begun making calls to each of you to re-establish your membership status in Trinity and hear from you directly on when you might be ready to return to worship in the church. 
You will begin to see changes in our worship service in April with lay-led worship beginning April 11. Fr Paul is still with us aiding and advising us throughout this transition. You will continue to see him in various roles in Sunday worship service. For at least the next two months you can look forward to his Eucharist services the first Sunday of the month, and for our most special of Holy Days, he will lead Eucharist at Pentecost and on Trinity Sunday.
 Vestry has been moving ahead in assuming the Church responsibilities, taking the lead on the day-to-day management of four major areas: Pastoral, Liturgical, Administrative, and our Facilities. Below is list of Vestry team leaders, their area of responsibility.
 
Pastoral—Spiritual needs of the parish
Meg Verardi
Diane Christensen—Prayers for parishioners (prayer chain email, prayers of the people in worship, newsletter)
 
Liturgical—Church services, high seasons and holy days, supply priest scheduling, and music
Amanda Paul-Parker
Music Director, Mary Yount
 
Administrative/Treasurer—Communications, Diocese requirements and reporting, office management
Carol Holt
Newsletter, Nancy Moore, Meg Verardi,

FacilitiesBuilding and grounds
David Hoos, Jr. Warden
 
If you have any questions, ideas, suggestions, or concerns, I encourage you to contact the appropriate person in charge in the aforementioned areas of responsibility by leaving a message for them by name on the church office phone, 209-267-0255 or emailing office@trinitysuttercreek.org.
 Of course, you can also contact me directly with any input, questions, or concerns.
 
Faithfully,
Meg Verardi

Farewell to Lynne B.
Lynne departs Amador County first thing Friday morning to drive across the country with her cats and her 22 year-old dove to make a home in Connecticut close to her sons. One son has set off already with her car, and she will be traveling with her other son and daughter-in-law. She will let us know when she arrives safely and how we can reach her. We pray for your safe arrival, Lynne.
O God, our Father, whose glory fills the whole creation, and whose presence we find wherever we go: preserve Lynne and her family; surround them with your loving care; protect them from every danger; and bring them in safety to their journey's end; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month
It is a time for communities to come together to build caring connections, supportive environments, and positive experiences for all children.
​ All adults play a role in building the safe, stable, nurturing homes and environments needed for the healthy development of our future generation of parents, leaders, and community member. 
Please visit the Amador Child Abuse Prevention Council
website: www.amadorcapc.org. for more information. During April, the CAPC is focusing on RESILIENCE. ​They asked people from around Amador County to share how they’ve been coping, and we hope these examples and stories of RESILIENCE will inspire you! https://www.amadorcapc.org/resilient-amador
