Farewell to Father Ed
and the Thompson Family
Dear Fellow Trinity Parishioners,

This Sunday, June 28, is the final Sunday that Father Ed and the Thompson family will be here  with us at Trinity. They have been a blessing and gift to Trinity for the past two and a half years, but the time has come to thank them and say "until we meet again."
Please donat e - as you are able - to a “purse” – a check! – as a parting gift symbolizing our affection and gratitude for the many gifts Father Ed and his family have bestowed on us during their time at Trinity. Non-deductible donations can be made by check or online.
1.      Make your check out to Trinity Church noting that is for Fr. Ed’s gift and either:
·        Mail a check to the church office at 2216 Ball, Galveston TX 77551
·        Drop a check off at the church office or through the mail slot in the Ball St. door.
2.      Donate online at  From the drop-down menu for Select a Fund, choose Gift for Clergy.

I truly believe what I said at the presentation of our gifts to Susan and Bill. Today we are strong and confident about our ability to persevere in times of trial and continue to serve one another and our community. Father Ed and the Thompson’s have contributed greatly to our reaching this point. We have been blessed and will continue to be blessed by our clergy leadership during this period of transition.

Ministers to UTMB Students During COVID 19
While our little friend, COVID 19, has us social distancing from our beloved UTMB Students that has not stopped us from ministering to them from afar. About 35 of our students are still on the island, online leaning from the comfort of their apartments. We check in with them weekly providing care and prayer, outreach, and most recently a drive thru dinner every other week on Wednesday evenings. This week we hosted a drive thru dinner and goodbye parade for Bill Kennard. What a treasure he has been. As we move forward, we hope to be back in the kitchen cooking for 80-100 students soon. Much like the church, we have safety protocol that must be followed. In the meantime, if you are at home and find extra time on your hands, please think about making and freezing a dessert for a future Willie T meal. We also welcome frozen homemade casseroles. If you can keep these in your freezer for a while that would be great but if not, let us know. If you ever wondered how we cook for 80-100 students each week, it's actually really easy! Every week we serve the same thing: salad, Normandy vegetables, baked beans, and garlic bread. The only item that changes from week to week is the casserole and the dessert. We even have a Willie T cookbook with weekly recipes we work with based off supplies on hand, wonderful leftovers, and budget. Please pray that God continues to work through us in our mission of hospitality to UTMB students in the name of the Lord. Thanks, Larissa Botik 409-599-1457,  Like us on Facebook: William Temple Episcopal Center-NEW
