Next Sunday is Harvest Sunday

The first of our three Harvest Sundays for 2017 takes place this Sunday, when we consecrate all of our Sunday collection to  missions or almsgiving. This time we will make a friendship gift to our neighbor Tony at Case Market, to offer our support for his upcoming reconstruction surgery, necessitated by injuries he suffered in a grievous assault. More on Harvest Sunday here.

Blini Potluck

On Cheesefare Sunday, February 26, our coffee hour will be a traditional Russian pre-Lenten meal (Maslenitsa), featuring blini; this custom was adapted from an old pagan tradition to say goodbye to winter and welcome spring. If you can help, please contact Oksana Voskresensky. 

Neighborhood Outreach

On Sunday, March 5, Tim Lindwall will be hosting an informal conversation during coffee hour about how Holy Trinity can expand our neighborhood outreach. We will consider questions like these: What are the needs in our neighborhood? How can we reach out to our neighbors? What connections do our parishioners have with other community agencies that we could develop? Who in our parish is interested in this work, and what skills do we have to offer? Why is this important to us? What kind of effect has Archangel Michael Hall, the food shelf, and the 100th Anniversary block party had on the neighborhood? What direction are we heading as a parish regarding this ministry? Whether you are interested in listening to the conversation, contributing your thoughts and ideas related to the subject, or engaging directly with the neighborhood, you are welcome to come.

Our Food Shelf

When doing your grocery shopping, please remember our neighbors in need and pick up some nonperishable food items for Holy Trinity's food shelf. Especially needed are canned goods: fruits and vegetables, beans and soups, and meats and seafood. Because most of our food-shelf visitors are homeless, cans with pop tops are ideal, as are ready-to-eat precooked chili, pastas, rice, or soups that can be opened easily. Non-food donations of personal hygiene items in travel sizes can also be donated (toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, soap, shampoo, etc), as well as packaged plastic silverware and napkins from to-go orders.
