April 29: Church Cleanup Day

Our annual church cleanup day will be this Saturday, April 29, from 9 am to 1 pm, with a rain date the following Saturday, May 6. We always have lots of fun, and get some great work done, both on the grounds and in the church interior. And we feed you lunch! Always appreciated are those who can bring their own hand and/or power tools; a pickup truck would be a blessing as well. If you have questions, or to sign up, contact Paul Purman 

(ppurman@comcast.net; 651-366-2828).

Chili Cook-off Photos

Thanks to all who participated in last Saturday's chili cook-off, which was a great success and (we hope) the start of a great community and neighborhood tradition! Thanks in particular to Drew Johnson for taking these great photos of the event.

Fundraising for Church Camp! 

From Andrea Bassett: On April 30 and May 7, we will be selling reusable cloth tote bags, spider plants, small icons, and other items to raise money for camp scholarships. Between campers, counselors, and workers, we that estimate 20 people from Holy Trinity are attending or working at church camp this year. What a record number! On May 7 we will also have a BAKE SALE! All are invited to donate baked goodies for the sale. We appreciate your help! If you have additional ideas or items that could be sold at these fundraisers, please contact Andrea. Thank you!

Books, Books, Books ... Another Summer Camp Scholarship Opportunity 

From Jason Schock: I have been doing some spring cleaning and have over 500+ books that I’m going to get rid of and thought I would first offer them up to the fine folks at HTOC for $1 a book, with all proceeds going towards this year's summer camp scholarship (You can of course of pay more for your books, but there will be a $1 minimum.) The Schock book collection consists of a wide range of topics on Christianity (Orthodox, Catholic, Lutheran, Evangelical, etc), history, and philosophy, as well as a few books on business. To peruse the collection or if you have questions regarding specific books (unfortunately I have no inventory list) simply contact me (612-250-6832 (text or phone); JPSchock@gmail.com) and I’ll schedule a time for you to stop by if you are so inclined.

Join us for lunch in Archangel Michael Hall after Liturgy on Sunday, May 7, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Fr Ted’s ordination to the priesthood, and Karen’s 75th birthday!
