St. Julian’s Guild is hosting their annual Teddy Bear Picnic on May 17 and they are inviting you to bring in new, small teddy bears to donate to the Bishop Anderson House “Operation Bear Hug” program. Operation Bear Hug provides age appropriate bears primarily to pediatric patients, but sometimes even adult patients at Stroger Hospital of Cook County, Rush University Medical Center and the CORE Center of Cook County. The bears are tangible indications of another’s concern for them and their recovery.

All members of Trinity are invited to donate small to medium sized, new teddy bears for the “Operation Bear Hug” program. Bears will be available for a free-will donation following the 10:00 services on May 6 and May 13. Envelopes will be available May 5/6on the table at the back of the Chapel if you would like to donate a teddy bear. Please give your envelope to an usher or bring to the church office.
