April 1: FOCUS Sunday Meal Hosted by Holy Trinity

From Carissa Wintheiser: Holy Trinity is scheduled to serve the FOCUS meal on Sunday, April 1! (For real, guys! This is not an elaborate prank! Please come!) We still need people to cook, and we'll also need people to serve.

We already have:
  • salad
  • cornbread
  • brownies
  • cooked shredded chicken to be added to the chili
  • Our fearless leader
We need:
  • 4 pots of chili, each serving 25
  • Servers!
This will be our LAST MEAL served at 1600 E Lake Street in Minneapolis--let's make it a great one! Can you help? If so, or if you have question, please contact Carissa Wintheiser. Thank you!

Vigil at the Tomb

We will again “watch and pray” by keeping a vigil at the tomb between the end of Matins for Holy Saturday (about 9 pm on Friday night, April 6) and the beginning of the Vesperal Liturgy at 10 am on Holy Saturday (April 7). The vigil involves nothing more than reading the Psalms out loud by the tomb. We will start with Psalm 1 after Matins, continue in order through Psalm 150, begin again with Psalm 1, and so on until the beginning of the Holy Saturday service. We aim to have at least two people for each one-hour time slot. Mike Lotti will have a sign-up sheet at church, but you can also call or email him (651-402 0810;  mslotti25@gmail.com) if you'd like to participate.

FOCUS Donations

Please remember that FOCUS is not accepting donations at this time. The donations corner has now been cleared out and needs to be kept empty, especially when the hall is rented out to neighborhood groups or families. All the churches will be kept informed when donations will be needed again. In the mean time, please either hold items at home, or donate elsewhere in the Twin Cities (Salvation Army, Goodwill, Savers, Epilepsy Foundation, Big Brothers/Big Sisters). Thank you!

Holy Trinity Food Shelf

As you shop this week, please consider picking up a few items for our food shelf, to help our neighbors in need (food shelf guidelines). Contact Ronda Wintheiser with any questions or suggestions. Thank you!
