Dear Trinity Episcopal Church,

This Sunday is our Annual Parish Meeting! I know that doesn't sound like the most exciting way to spend a Sunday morning, but I do hope that you can be there. We can take this opportunity, as a parish family, to reflect on all that happened in 2022 and to look ahead for 2023. 

One of the highlights for 2023 will be our Lenten program shared with Grace and Saint Augustine of Hippo Episcopal churches. The title of the program is, "Revelation: The World According to God." On the Wednesdays evenings in March, we'll be exploring the book of Revelation in the Bible and reflecting on illuminations from The Saint John's Bible. I know that Revelation is often derided, but I hope that we are rather encouraged by this book of the Bible. 
As part of our Lenten program, we will be raising money for a cemetery marker for the Rev. Thomas Cain and his wife, Betty. Mr. Cain was the rector of Saint Augustine of Hippo Episcopal Church in 1900, and both he and his wife lost their lives in the Great Storm. This will be one way to honor our past and to anticipate the resurrection of all the saints so beautifully described in Revelation.
With peace,
