Bishop Anderson House is collecting bears for their expanded chaplaincy program and we would like to help. There are several ways to participate: contributing through Trinity by check with “Teddy bears” in the memo or through online giving, purchasing small bears yourself and bringing them to the church office, or participating in the St. Julian’s Guild Teddy Bear drive following the 10:00am services on Sunday, October 3 and 10 in Millett Hall. The requested contribution is $5 for each bear.

Thoughts on Streaming Services

We want to hear from parishioners who are not able or not comfortable with in person services. Beyond streaming the 10:00 am Sunday service if you would like an online (zoom) service, please email Fr. Kevin.

Trinity PADS Coordinator Wanted

For many years, Trinity has been an overnight site for PADS. One night a month, we would not only provide the physical space (Millett Hall) but also the volunteers to staff the site. On other nights, partner churches would handle the staffing when the guests stayed at Trinity. As things are opening up, plans are being made for PADS guests to return to Trinity this fall. For the past several years, Gerald Massie has acted as Trinity’s PADS coordinator and liaison with the PADS organization and our partner churches. We are grateful for all his work! Because he is moving, we need to find a person (or persons) to replace him.

Help for Afghan Allies

Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM), the refugee and migration ministry of The Episcopal Church, needs your support to welcome our Afghan allies to communities across the country. EMM is one of nine national refugee resettlement agencies tasked with the challenging and life-saving work of supporting Afghans who arrive with parolee status. The Afghan Parolee Services program provides very limited support only for parolees first 30-90 days; your donations can ensure they have a safe place to live and access to basic needs during and beyond that period. EMM will need to provide at least $3,000 worth of housing and cash assistance for each person arriving on parolee status.
