Please join the Outreach Commission on Thursday, April 26 at 6:30 pm for an informational meeting concerning how we at Trinity can help Bishop Joseph Atem, Diocese of Renk, South Sudan. We will meet downstairs in Room 25. Our guests for the meeting will be Jackie Krauss, Jackie Smith and Sue Barnum from St. Michael’s, Barrington. St. Michael’s is very involved in supporting Bishop Joseph in his ministries and hope that Trinity can also become involved. A salad dinner will be provided. Please let Jodi Massie or Nancy Lanning know if you can attend. We will be ordering salads from Portillos so we need a count of how many people are coming.

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.
