Lent and Easter away from the Church Buildings

The COVID 19 pandemic has forced Trinity to close its doors for services and programs, but members of our church family have found ways to observe Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter.

Sacristan Sue Dippo visited church at the beginning of the quarantine period to check on the altar linens. The light shining through the stained glass windows cast a beautiful message of hope on the white marble.

We have a Trinity tradition of sharing an agape supper of bread and soup prior to Maundy Thursday services. We couldn't gather for the meal this year, but Beth and Stacy prepared soup at home.

We have been unable to conduct Stations of the Cross on most Lenten Fridays, but James and Darlene found a way to observe Good Friday outdoors. "James and I went to St. Agnes cemetery in Menands. There is a lot in section 19 that has stations of the cross. We listened to Bishop Love's stations on the diocese website."

 Beth and Family have decorated for Easter... 

...and so has Elida.

Below are some photos of Easter in church last year.
