During the summer,  the Sunday School will be working on small tasks in the garden in the front of the Trinity.  We will listen to and try to learn this song which has a very catchy tune so if you hear us humming, hum along!  Or take a listen to Garden Song here and learn it!
PETE SEEGER "Garden Song"
Inch by inch, row by row,
Gonna make this garden grow.
Gonna mulch it deep and low,
Gonna make it fertile ground.
Inch by inch, row by row,
Please bless these seeds I sow.
Please keep them safe below

Trinity to form Flower Guild...

A group of parishioners interested in creating floral decorations for the church is being formed. Experience is not necessary, but a creative eye and desire to serve is. Training days will be held in the early fall. Contact Kent Phillips for more details and to sign on for this new ministry.


flowersAltar Decoration Memorials

If you would like to place a flower memorial or thanksgiving in the Sunday bulletin, contact Diane Donato in the Parish Office via email or at 221-5351.  A donation of $50 is suggested, but any reasonable amount will be accepted.  Only a few dates are spoken for currently. An album of altar decoration has begun online. Click this photo to see more.


Disposable Diapers are always in need

Please don't forget our neighbors on the street. Candles, diapers, and new dry socks are essential for this time of year. We have many weekday requests for snacks and canned self-opening food items as well. Remember to save hotel toiletries from your travels. All donations are greatly appreciated.


powerThe Big Picture study group that met  during Lent to study Richard Rohr’s book  Falling Upward will convene again to view and discuss "The Power of Myth," a six-session series of discussions between Bill Moyers and anthropological philosopher Joseph Campbell about commonalities in world religions, myths, and philosophical traditions.
Continuing Sundays through July 27 at 6:00 pm., "The Power of Myth" discussion group will be meeting in the Undercroft of Trinity Church. 
All are invited to attend.  This series of video discussions was made 25 years ago, and has been re-issued with added materials and interviews; it was considered innovative at the time, and still today poses powerful insights into many of life's deepest questions.  If you have further questions about the film series or the meetings, ask Karen Peeler, Stuart Hobbs, or Jean Cotting.



We pray for all who are sick or suffering at this time –B. J. Artrup, Walter Olmstead, Darryl Gless, Sharon Whaley, John Brewster, Jenny Treasure, Amelia Lewis, Heather and Jason Bailey, Deb McHugh,  Jon Nusbaum, Carol Burns, The Rev. Elizabeth Lilly, Marjorie Dotson, Hal Duryee, Michael McKinley, Bob Park and others whom we name silently or aloud.
We pray for Petty Officer Kristy Sizemore, Cynthia Epler, Jordan Sellman, Matt Schumann, Commander Scott Whaley, Gunnery Sergeant Robert A Griffith Jr., and all who serve our country.
We remember all who work for peace around the world, especially those who take counsel in Washington, D.C. and Moscow in this time of civil unrest and potential war in Ukraine and Crimea. 
We renew our commitments to serve the poorest in our midst and remember all who are homeless and hungry in our city today.  We give thanks for the generous hospitality offered this afternoon at In The Garden, and pray for the Holy Spirit’s abundant grace in our fellowship.
