How will you do? Take the Episcopal 101 Quiz

Episcopal 101 is a really fun Sunday School class where you’ll learn about the amazing journey of the Episcopal Church, it’s meaningful worship practices, and the many ways Episcopalians serve Christ together. The class is for EVERYBODY, and especially for Adult Confirmands. Who can benefit from the class? Take the quiz. Answers will be in next week's ePistle. If you get all the questions correct, we need you to help teach the class!  If you miss a few, well, we’ll see you beginning on Sunday, May 8.

Movie and a Discussion

Beloved Community Film Series

This Sunday's movie on the ongoing struggle for equality: “Harriet” tells the story of Harriet Tubman, an enslaved woman who escaped from captivity and then risked her own freedom to work as a “conductor” on the Underground Railroad, leading other enslaved people to freedom. Click here to view full schedule. The movies will be screened at 3 p.m. in the Roe Library. A facilitated discussion will follow the presentation. 

May Casserole Ministry

We have made a few new adjustments to the Casserole Ministry this month. The need for trays of a main dish (protein) and cooked vegetables has been reduced to 4 of each. With the warmer weather there has been a request for more cold salads (in the vegetable category). Don't forget to pay attention to drop-off times since these have changed recently. Thank you all for your continued support and show of love for our neighbors in Christ. Sign up, here.

World Wide Labyrinth Day

Every year on the first Saturday in May, thousands of people worldwide participate in World Labyrinth Day: a walking meditation for world peace. Walkers in 35 countries meet at 1:00 in their local time zones to “walk as one at one” in a collective effort to send a rolling wave of peaceful energy around the earth. 
At Holy Trinity the Labyrinth Keepers will meet at 1:00 on Saturday, May 7 to participate in this walk for world peace. Attendees will be encouraged to set an intention for the day that includes a prayer for peace and begins in the heart of each one present. Please join us around our Holy Trinity labyrinth as we gather to make our shared energy of love and connection felt throughout the world.

Let’s Be the Hands of Christ “On the Roof” and On the Ground for Our Neighbor

On Saturday, May 14, we need 15 people to restore a neighbor’s home located on Craig St.  We’ll do roofing on a one-story flat roof, clean up the yard, install assistance rails, and more.  Join us!  There are three ways to be a part of this dynamic ministry: do repair work, pray, and provide lunch.  Click here for more information.  Click here for more information and to sign up.
Drop off: Sunday, May 15 in front of church and Monday, May 16 in office lobby. 
Practicing good hygiene is often self-care we take for granted.  For our neighbors who live on the streets or who financially struggle to meet their core needs, practicing good hygiene is complicated, if not impossible. Lack of good hygiene poses significant health risks, influences mental health, and often leaves people feeling disconnected. Click here to read more.

Editor Farewell

I accepted a new job offer and this is my last couple of weeks at Holy Trinity. I have enjoyed being the editor and designer of The Parish Post, the Christian Formation brochure, and the weekly ePistle for over five years. It has been wonderful working with and for you and I appreciate your amazing ministry. 
Best to you, Katie Sopcik
