Music Notes

At the 11:15 service, our pianist and Hodie leader, Amanda Matthews will perform a Bach Somata on the violin. The choir will sing the Ubi Caritas of Maurice Durufle. Richard Cox was a great fan of this piece and the composer. He conducted Durufle’s Requiem at one of several celebrations of his ministry and Holy Trinity.

February Casserole Ministry

After a 5 week pause, we are ready to get back to preparing, packaging, and delivering food to families in our community. This ministry has grown to more than 40 servants who have shared their time and talents with our neighbors who, almost 2 years later, still struggle to feed their families. I am grateful for this outpouring of love and hope. If you would like to join us, please click HERE to learn more.

Let’s Restock the Holy Spirit Church Pantry by the 100s

Holy Trinity gladly continues to partner with the Holy Spirit Episcopal family to care for our sisters and brothers and children who live in the Holy Spirit community. Dozens of families weekly receive fresh-cooked casseroles along with a box filled with canned vegetables and packaged foods. The Holy Spirit pantry is running low. So Holy Trinity, let’s restock the Holy Spirit pantry by the hundred!  Please drop off food and diapers in the Holy Trinity office lobby during regular office hours or on Sunday. We plan to deliver the bounty to Holy Spirit on Monday, February 7. We are loving and actively caring for God’s Beloved Children. Thanks be to God for your ministry!
We need 100+ cans/packages of each of these:   
Peas, carrots, green beans, corn, diced tomatoes/tomato sauce, dried pasta
Size 6 diapers (size 5 welcome too) and wipes
