Coffee and Fellowship Hour for Adults During Sunday School: We plan to add a Coffee and Fellowship time for adults in Broome Hall from 10 – 10:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings as soon as we are allowed by the Diocese to serve food again, hopefully on Sunday, February 13. Stay tuned!

Spring Launch of Sunday School for Children Postponed until February 13: For many reasons and after MUCH discussion with our parish nurse Maureen Flak, Jenny Campbell, Marjorie Donnelly, Sarah Carver, and several parents, we have decided to postpone the start of Children’s Sunday school. As of now, we plan to begin Sunday, February 13 giving us a while longer to hopefully get the Covid-19 numbers down. We do not have enough Sunday school teachers to staff our classes presently, and we understand! Our children's and teacher's safety and wellbeing always comes first. Please bear with us as we try to navigate these uncharted waters with so many shifts and changes.

Music Notes

The section leaders of the choir, Trinity Voices, will sing Ain-a That Good News during the 11:15 a.m. Offertory. Allegra Gicla will play organ music for Epiphany at the Voluntary. One of the Taize pieces at 11:15, Arise, Shine, for Your Light Has Come is dedicated to Dr. Jean Brooks, a longtime supporter of the music at Holy Trinity.
