February 7: Annual Parish Meeting
Our annual meeting at Holy Trinity will be held Sunday, February 7, after Liturgy - please plan to attend!
HT Delegation Shines Luminously at FOCUS Spelling Bee
The FOCUS spelling bee fundraiser at Surly Brewery on Monday night became something of a triumphal procession for Holy Trinity parish brain power. Elissa Cook Lindwall was crowned Speller Laureate as she decisively beat ferocious competition and triumphed, showering honor on us all. Evan Gage, our fairly new community member and one of the team of teachers from Trinity High School whom we have been seeing a lot of lately, came in second. Even third-placed Alice Woog from St Mary's Cathedral was baptized and raised at Holy Trinity, proving that there is something of genius in the water on the East Side. Something to which clergy are apparently immune. Fr Jonathan made an ignominious exit in the early rounds, but at least he played. Fr Andrew just vegged.
Note From a Sister Church Serving Residents of Flint, Michigan
Fr Jonathan and Vera's friend and colleague, Fr Joe Abud in Flint, Michigan, shared this information with them about the much-publicized water crisis in Flint: Our parish of St George (Flint Township), along with the three other Orthodox churches in the Flint area (Assumption-GOA, St Mary Magdalene, and St Nicholas both Bulgarian-OCA), are located outside of the city of Flint and are not part of the crisis. Further, like most of our parishioners, all of our clergy families live in the suburbs of Flint, which, again, is not affected. Unfortunately, our parish has 40 families who live in the city of Flint and will continue to live with this unbelievable problem for an undetermined period of time. Most of these families are low income, like the majority of Flint residents. Our parish also has roughly 40 families who own businesses in the city. If you or your parishioners want more information or are interesting in helping, please look at this web site, Flint Water Info.
