WE Did It!

Holy Trinity friends, you stepped forward to “BE” Hope in Action by donating emergency/life-sustaining food and supplies to our neighbors who live in the Holy Spirit Episcopal Church community. We exceeded all our goals! This week Parish Nurse Maureen Flak, Frank Shepherd, and Rev. Mark Lile-King delivered more than 500 cans/packages of food, over 800 diapers, and well over 1000 wipes to care for our neighbors. Thank you for your ministry!

Join us this week upstairs in the Parish House in Room 210 (K-2) and Room 211 (3-5) and reconnect with your church buddies. While the kids are in Sunday School, parents are invited to check out the weekly Coffee and Fellowship Hour in Broome Hall.

Music Notes

Coordinator of our string ensemble Hodie, and the piano accompanist for the Chancel Choir, violinist Amanda Matthews will play two movements from J. S. Bach’s Violin Sonata in E major. At the 9 a.m. service, the quartet from the Chancel Choir will sing Durufle’s Ubi caritas, and the Chancel Choir will sing the Gjeilo setting of Ubi caritas at the 11:15 service. The text translation begins, “where true charity and love dwells, God is there.”

Volunteers needed for Meals on Wheels Teams 

Monday, February 21

Hundreds of local seniors are homebound and struggle, especially during a pandemic, to obtain healthy meals and to maintain human connection. YOU CAN HELP! On the third Monday morning of each month, Holy Trinity members and friends are needed to deliver prepared meals and to lovingly connect with our neighbors.

Deliveries are made in teams.  We are looking for teams of two and for individuals wishing to be paired up with another congregation member.  We welcome regular deliverers as well as those of you who can help out from time to time.

This month, we are short a number of delivery teams.  We welcome you whether you are jumping in for February or want to become a regular deliverer.

Delivery teams pick up meals at 9 a.m. and finish around noon.  If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Lance Hulme at

Join a Lenten Covenant Group

It’s time to join a Lenten Covenant Group! A Lenten Covenant Group is a small intentional community of 8-12 people who will meet weekly for approximately one hour the first full week in March through Holy Week to share spiritual reflections and to walk together on a Lenten spiritual journey. This year we’re using Barbara Brown Taylor’s book Learning to Walk in the Dark to guide our reflections. “Through darkness we find courage, we understand the world in new ways, and we feel God’s presence around us, guiding us through things seen and unseen.” Both in-person and Zoom groups are available. Journey with us! Click here for more information and to sign up.
