Juneteenth
It goes by many names. Whether you call it Emancipation Day, Freedom Day or the country's second Independence Day, Juneteenth, now a federal holiday since 2021, is an important anniversary in our nation's history.
Juneteenth gets its name from combining "June" and "nineteenth," for June 19, 1865 is the day Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger, who had fought for the Union, led a force of soldiers to Galveston, Texas, to deliver the message that the war was finally over, the Union had won, slavery was abolished, and there was now the manpower to enforce the end of slavery.
The announcement came two months after the effective conclusion of the Civil War, and even longer since President Abraham Lincoln had first signed the Emancipation Proclamation. but when the message arrived 250,00 Black people in Texas still weren't free. That was 156 years ago.

As Episcopalians we recognize the importance of celebrating this event and dedicating ourselves to the continued mission of ending oppression in all its forms.

Bishop Megan Juneteenth Message

Let us Pray: Holy and righteous God, you created us in your image. Grant us grace to contend fearlessly against evil and to make no peace with oppression. Help us, like those of generations before us, resist the evil of slavery and human bondage in any form and any manner of oppression. Amen.

New Book Study
Beginning June 28

Sacred Earth Sacred Soul:
Celtic Wisdom for Reawakening to what Our Souls Know and Healing the World
by John Philip Newell, 255 pp

Our new book study will be starting soon! 16 folks (about half Trinity and half "friends") have read or are currently reading Sacred Earth Sacred Soul. I anticipate two groups to accommodate as many people as possible.
 The 5-session study will begin for one group Tuesday June 28th (probably 2:30---4:00) and alternating weeks through mid August. This will be a zoom group.
 The second group is TBA but perhaps Wednesday PM. I would like to host this group at our place if there is sufficient interest. Face-to-face is more comfortable for many folks in an outdoor setting. We can always fall back on zoom in a heat wave.
 
This is an easy-to-read but profound book tracing over the centuries prominent voices from the Celtic tradition, which saw God as present within earth and us---voices such as that of St Brigid, John Muir, and Teilhard de Chardin. It is quickly available; I can help with Prime orders if you're just realizing you'd like to read it.

Sustaining (Re)Start

Trinity has committed to create 10 bins of cleaning supplies to be deployed as soon as a need arises. With the possibly of multiple large summer fires, we may be called upon more than once to send our supplies for recovery. Once we deploy our 10 bins, we will need to build 10 more. Each bin is about $100 to build, an inventory of 10 is about $1000. To be a consistent resource for the Diocese and Northern California for this project we need a sustainable source of income to buy the supplies when our inventory has been deployed. 
Therefore we ask you to sign up for an automatic recurring donation that fits your budget. Trinity will hold the funds in a designated fund account to be used only for Project ReStart.


  • Go to ReStart Program and type in amount
  • Go to Frequency of Donation drop-down menu and choose a frequency
  • Please consider including covering the PayPal processing fees, by clicking the box before proceeding to payment. Your total charges will be tallied.

Thanks goes to those who have already supported
this important Trinity ministry to help victims of disaster.
News from our friends who have moved.......

Mary M.:
Mary is settling into her new apartment in a senior living facility in Castro Valley, where she is much closer to relatives. She's getting her quilting supplies organized and has met another resident who shares sewing interests. They decided to start a new group meeting for people who enjoy needlework. Mary is attending Holy Cross church there. Contact nancymoore41@gmail.com for Mary's contact information.:


Meredith and Bob M.:
The Millers have both endured a month of COVID illness, and they are thankfully feeling better and getting stronger. Bob has developed an autoimmune disease which has destroyed the optic nerve in one eye. This has been very difficult of course. Bob is taking an injection that helps control this auto-immune condition.
They are just beginning to "get out"- Meredith has done some shopping, and they plan on attending church this Sunday. They do like their new church home.
