A CALL TO PRAYER

“Restore to wholeness whatever is broken in our lives, in our nation and in the world:  Hear us, O Lord of life.”

In this season of pain, violence illness, and brokenness in our lives and in the world, a brief time is being set apart to take action in the form of prayer. 

You are invited to come for yourself as well as bring the names of others for whom you want prayer and for the incidents and events in our world for which you are concerned.
DURING SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER
Trinity is collecting new or gently used backpacks and or blankets for distribution to the homeless during the holiday season. If you can provide either or both of these requested items, please put them in the identified baskets in the Narthex during the next two months.
Thank you for making a difference and being a community angel!
World Peace Village comes to Trinity Episcopal
Church and School - Now through October 27th

CLICK HERE TO READ ALL ABOUT IT!
 

The Episcopal Diocese of Texas owns a museum-quality exhibit that is an experiential teaching tool about the main religious traditions of the world, and how we pray for peace.

Participants will touch and use the sacred objects of each tradition: Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Native American Spirituality. We learn the Gold Rule of each tradition, and the Greeting of Peace.

This large exhibit will fill the entire upstairs of Eaton Hall, and includes a center section of tables upon which we have the chance to make a craft representing each tradition: things like prayer beads or flags or a prayer mat. An adult or older child can go through the Peace Village in a “self-guided” way, and younger children will need supervision.

The exhibit will remain set up until OCTOBER 27 . We will schedule Sunday School, our own school classes, outside groups to visit, and the entire community one afternoon as well. After October 27th THE WORLD PEACE VILLAGE becomes the property of Trinity Episcopal School and there will be many opportunities to use each of the materials.

BISHOP JEFF FISHER IS COMING
OCTOBER 27 FOR BAPTISM & CONFIRMATION

BAPTISM AND CONFIRMATION
Baptism is the once in a lifetime moment in which a Christian is re-born, and adopted into God’s family. He or she professes their faith in Jesus, and if they are still a baby their Godparents make that profession on their behalf. We Baptize people of all ages in water—a small amount or a large amount!

Confirmation is the moment in which somebody who is a young adult (or older adult) joins our Episcopal denomination—after learning about our particular traditions and beliefs. It takes a Bishop to be Confirmed, and this happens at Trinity, Galveston twice a year.
Bishop Jeff Fisher will be here on Sunday, October 27, for Baptism and Confirmation. If you want to take this step, email or call Rev. Susan. We would love to welcome you!! (409)765-6317 susankennard@sbcglobal.net

GHAFONA IDUWE
Ghafona Iduwe (his friends call him “Fona”) is proud to be the first American-born member of his family – his parents moved to Dallas from Nigeria before he was born. He earned a bachelor’s degree at Howard University before enrolling at UTMB, where he studies epidemiology in pursuit of a master’s degree in public health.
He said he chose public health because it will give him the opportunity to focus on helping whole communities rather than just individual patients. Community engagement is important to him, and he hopes to work for a government agency or a company that works with government to address chronic diseases with education, lifestyle changes and preventive medicine, and to help solve health care disparities.
“It’s good that people are living longer these days,” he said, “but along with that they become susceptible to chronic diseases as they get older. Public health can help educate people about how they can be healthier as they get older.”
He said his brother’s battle with sickle cell anemia and his mother’s career as a nurse also helped influence his decision to pursue a health care career.
Fona likes UTMB because the people there care about him. “They allowed me time to recover from the emotional roller coaster I was on when Mom passed away last year, and they really wanted to help.”
In addition to his studies, Fona is a work-study employee in Clinical Research Administration at UTMB, and in what little spare time he has left, he enjoys photography, sports and travel.
Asked what he likes best about Willie T’s, Fona said “Chicken alfredo…and Larissa! You can’t be down when you’re around Larissa.” (Larissa Botik is Executive Director of the William Temple Center, known by everyone as Willie T’s.
