Holy Trinity Hosts Focus Meal
Mark your calendars and reserve your kitchens! Holy Trinity is
scheduled to serve a meal at FOCUS Minnesota on Sunday, April 9 (Palm
Sunday). This is one of three meals a year that we undertake to to feed
those in need. The menu is meatloaf, rice, salad and dessert, and we
are looking for the following donations to the meal; we plan to
distribute 130-150 meals:
13 meatloaf that can yield about 10-11 slices each
20-25 lb of lettuce
8-9 pans of rice (approx. 9x13)
The FOCUS center provides beverages, coffee and creamer, paper goods and condiments. Volunteers are also needed to serve the meal. If you haven't been to a FOCUS meal, try to make it April 9! It is a wonderful experience and a great opportunity to fulfill Christ's teaching to love one another. If you can be a part of this ministry, please contact Vera at 651-324-2705 or email@example.com to sign up. Thank you!
Fundraising for Camp!
If you are planning on attending or sending children to camp, please contact Andrea Bassett. At the end of April we will be asking for a freewill donation to help cover some of the cost of camp. Additional ideas for fundraising would be welcome! If you have campers you’d like considered for our confidential financial assistance, please let Fr Jonathan know as soon as possible, but certainly before St Thomas Sunday (the Sunday after Pascha).
Holy Trinity Food Shelf
As you shop this week, please remember to add about 3 items to your shopping cart to keep our food shelf well stocked. Peanut butter, hearty soups, chili with meat, pasta, canned meats or fish are among the items that are always appreciated. Especially handy are canned goods with pop-tops that don’t require a can opener. Personal items like toilet paper, toothbrushes, etc. are also welcome. Thank you so much to all who have been helping to fill the shelves for our local friends in need!
