The Blessing Box

Have you noticed the black cabinet mounted on the fence near the gate to the Parish House? It's our new Blessing Box, a little free pantry for those in need. As Matthew 25 says, "For I was hungry and you gave me food. I was thirsty and you gave me drink; a stranger and you welcomed me." It is the hope of the Vestry that we as a Christian community can help those in our neighborhood. Please help stock the pantry with: 
FOODS IN CANS OR PLASTIC: Examples - peanut butter, jelly, pasta and sauce, vegetables, soup, bottled water 
PERSONAL CARE ITEMS: Examples - diapers, toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, toilet tissue

Christmas in July

We celebrated Christmas in July on July 23rd as a reminder that Jesus is the reason for every season. The Trinity Players read the the Biblical Christmas story from Luke, Matthew and Isaiah. We sang Christmas carols and enjoyed a beautiful rendition of "Mary, Did You know" sung by Alyx Balkwell and accompanied by Dave Jones on guitar and Tom DeCelle on flute.
A note from Father Desmond:  "Greetings and Grace, Trinity Family and Saints...a word of appreciation to the entire parish for a lovely Christmas in July Worship and Fellowship experience. It was truly a very good day of Parish Family Living together. Thank you, one and all, Trinity Saints."

Ten teens and five adults from the Episcopal Diocese of Albany are currently (June 26 – July 9, 2017) participating in the 7th Albany Northern Ireland Teen Mission.
Summer Madness is Ireland's largest Christian festival aimed at encouraging youth to reflect on issues that confront them in their social and spiritual development via seminars, music and worship. Teens will have the opportunity to deepen their faith and build solid Christian relationships, while worshipping under a circus tent.” Two of Trinity’s parishioners/acolytes, Stevie Roy and James Golden, are among the travelers. Please pray for them as they take part in this mission.
