Pan-Orthodox Lenten Vespers at Holy Trinity
It has been a local tradition to gather together for Sunday Vespers
with our Orthodox brothers and sisters in Christ from throughout the
metropolitan area for worship and fellowship during Great Lent. Holy
Trinity will host the pan-Orthodox Sunday Lenten Vespers on April
7. Vespers begin at 4 pm and will be followed by a Lenten
appetizer reception in Archangel Michael Hall. We’ll need people to
prepare appetizers and our youth to act as servers. More details and a
sign-up sheet will be available this Sunday, March 17. (Contact email@example.com with questions.)
Emergency Parking Near Holy Trinity (though March)
From Fr Jonathan: Most of you are aware that St Paul instituted emergency one-side parking restrictions this week, through the end of March. Around church this makes an already difficult parking situation a bit worse. Here is the gist: The main cross streets at church, Forest and Case, are arterial routes, and parking restrictions on these streets are unchanged. This means that parking remains permissible on the west side of Forest St and on both sides of Case. Parking on all other streets around the church is restricted to the odd-numbered side of the block. The city’s one-side-parking map is available here.
Holy Trinity Food Shelf
Thank you so much to the parishioners who have been regularly contributing to Holy Trinity's food shelf. At this time of year, it is such a blessing to have such an abundant supply of the foods recommended in our guidelines on hand -- in particular canned full meals like stews and hearty soups that include meat, vegetables, and a starch. The folks who regularly walk to Archangel Michael Hall in the cold on Sundays to receive a bag of groceries have expressed how grateful they are for our food shelf and for those meals. If you shop for the food shelf this week, keep in mind that we are currently running low on canned vegetables of all kinds, as well as uncooked pasta and rice. Thank you!
(Please contact Ronda Wintheiser with any questions or suggestions.)

Adult EducationMarch 24: Christian Perspectives on Suffering
Suffering is a universal conundrum, but especially for people of faith: how should we as Christians think about suffering and where is God in the midst of suffering? How does our Christian faith help process the problem of suffering? This Sunday, Jason Schock continues the discussion on the role of our Christian faith in light of suffering.
