Lenten Soup Supper Series 2019
The 2019 Lenten Soup Supper Series is entitled Return from Exile: Overcoming Loss, Failure & Personal Set Backs .


Exile is a place where you are cut off from your sense of place, your sense of belonging. It is a place where you lack all that you need. It is a time of isolation and suffering. We often associate the concept of exile with a number of events in the Bible, but we all experience exile in some form throughout our lives. God speaks to us through these events and, more importantly, helps us to return from ‘exile’ through the process of spiritual recovery.

The series will begin on Wednesday, March 13th at 6:15 PM. There will be four sessions, including a light soup supper. The remaining series dates are March 20th, March 27th, and April 10th. We invite you to join us. Bring a friend!
Invite. Welcome. Connect.
Greetings! The Trinity Evangelism Committee has concluded its 7-week Moving Past Go! workshop series to introduce the Invite Welcome Connect newcomer ministry to the parish. Three new committees have been formed to oversee the implementation of the exciting new ideas generated through the process: Invite (chaired by John Ball), Welcome (chaired by Lisa Allain), and Connect (chaired by Cathy Dale).

Please keep this important endeavor in your prayers and - if you have not done so - please take this short ministry quiz here   to see where you may be called to serve, then reach out to that committee to learn more about their plans, click here to see the committee members. Much more information can be found at www.invitewelcomeconnect.com
The workbook we used can be found at the website, or it is also attached here .

The next Evangelism Committee meeting will be held in the parish hall at 4:00 pm on Sunday, March 3 rd . We will talk more about our committees and the assessment of current conditions. Everyone is welcome.

Enneagram Retreat at the Gray Center - April 5-7, 2019
A letter form Ellen Gabardi:

I would like to invite you to consider gathering with  The Institute for Conscious Being  for an Enneagram retreat at the Gray Center in Canton April 5-7, 2019. I am presently engaged in their two-year training, and I have found their approach to be immensely complementary to the approach of  Life in the Trinity Ministry  with which many of you are familiar.  

As many of you have experienced firsthand in your own lives, the wisdom of the Enneagram creates space and grace by cultivating understanding and compassion for ourselves and for others. The teachings of  The Institute for Conscious Being  promote wholeness through spiritual consciousness and transformation. I hope you'll consider gathering with Dr. Howell and the faculty in April. 

To register click here (click on Gray Center Programs, then on 2019 Programs).  
For an even easier way to register click here to be taken to the form.
