Going fast! Only 30 packs of notecards left!

Looking for something to give your loved ones for confirmation, baptism, and later on this spring, graduation? What about gifts for upcoming birthdays, anniversaries, and other special days? All that shopping takes time and energy. The solution is at Trinity Episcopal Church, thanks to the Episcopal Churchwomen. Also, you can say goodbye to flipping through expensive, mass-produced cards in hopes of finding the right one to send thanks, birthday greetings, congratulations, or condolences or to say "Happy Easter" or "I'm thinking of you." That problem, too, has also been solved by Trinity's ECW.

Packs of beautiful notecards featuring a design of Trinity Church are for sale in the Trinity Church office . The original pen-and-ink/watercolor design that inspired the notecards is framed and hanging in the Parish Hall of Trinity Church. It is by award-winning artist Will Smith Jr. of New Orleans and Natchez, who grew up attending and loving Trinity Church.

Notecards with matching envelopes are available in packs of five for $10.

Proceeds from the note card sales benefit outreach programs of Trinity's Episcopal Churchwomen and help celebrate Trinity Church's 200th anniversary, 1822-2022. "We are delighted to offer these special notecards," said Phebe Winters, co-chairman with Cyndy Stevens of Trinity's ECW. "They are not only lovely but practical, and the money the sales generate will be put to good use helping people in our community."

A Prayer For This Week

your commandment of love is so simple 
and so challenging. 
Help me to let go of my pride, 
to be humble in my penance. 
I want only to live the way you ask me to love, 
to love the way you ask me to live. 
I ask this through your son, Jesus, 
who stands at my side 
today and always.

We invite you to share in the 2018 Lenten email series from Episcopal Relief & Development. Each day during Lent you will receive a daily reflection, co-authored by a group of faith leaders from across the church. During this season of reflection on our Christian faith, their writings will enhance your spiritual journey as they both inspire and challenge you. Each daily meditation is presented in both English and Spanish. Click here to sign up!
