Holy Week and Easter Offerings for AFEDJ

The Vestry has designated that loose plate and special envelope offerings from Holy Week and Easter will be sent to the American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem. The Diocese of Jerusalem spans across Israel and the Palestinian Territories, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon and, through its schools, hospitals, and other institutions, meets a wide variety of needs, regardless of religious or ethnic identity. AFEDJ is an organization that raises funds to support these institutions and the ministries they provide.


In this time of war in Gaza, it is especially important that we support the ministry of the Ahli Hospital and all the other organizations that AFEDJ assists. Life in the entire Palestinian Territories has been uprooted. By helping the ministry and mission of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem we are an active part of living into and working for the peace that is so desperately needed.


Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you. Peace be within your walls and quietness within your towers.” Psalm 122:7-8

Women Together: a group that gathers weekly to explore our Christian faith and practice through book discussion, prayer and fellowship. We meet on Tuesdays from 2:00 to 3:15 pm in the reception room at St. John’s (679 Farmington Avenue, West Hartford, CT).


On Tuesday April 2, 2024, we will begin discussing Waiting for Our Souls to Catch Up by Sister Carol Perry . "Bring your highlighter and your sense of wonder to a comfortable chair and marvel at what you didn't know about Biblical history. Waiting for Our Souls to Catch Up is a must read for all those seeking a spiritual peace in a high-tech world. But most of all bring your appreciation of Sister Carol Perry's scholarly brilliance in refining prayer, faith, and grace. I love this book. I will always have two, my annotated one and another one to give away." - Rolland G. Smith.


We will start by reading the Forward and the first 30 pages. Don’t worry if you haven’t received your book yet, just come and enjoy the conversation.


The books we choose are usually available at libraries, amazon.com and other booksellers. WT has been attended by women from St. John’s, Trinity, St. James and St. Monica’s. Please contact Linda MacGougan macgougans@gmail.com or Cathy Rowe crowedy@yahoo.com if you would like additional information.

Trinity's Book Group will meet on Friday, April 5th, 7:00-9:00 pm, to discuss Remarkably Bright Creatures, by Shelby Van Pelt. It's an exploration of friendship, reckoning, and hope that traces a widow's unlikely connection with a giant Pacific octopus. This book is available in libraries and bookstores. All are welcome to attend, for one meeting or many. Linda and Mark MacGougan will host this meeting at their home; please let them know if you plan to attend (macgougans@gmail.com; 860-878-0334)



APRIL 14,2024



Come join Trinity's Music Director, Michelle Horsley, in a conversation about birdsong! This talk is in anticipation of our large-scale Birdsong event on Sunday evening, April 21st, which is a one-of-a-kind musical homage to birds, including recordings of various species paired with human-composed repertoire for choir and organ.


Birdsong is humbly offered in recognition of Earth Day - lovingly conceived by Trinity’s music director who is also a lifelong birder and funded partially by the Jolidon Fund at the Greater Hartford Chapter of the American Guild of Organists. At this pre-concert Adult Forum conversation about Birdsong, Michelle will discuss some of the ways composers have been inspired by birdsong over nearly 1000 years of choral/organ music and how they have even translated birdcalls to musical notation.


We will chat about the particular musical qualities of various bird species and examine fascinating ways that our avian companions develop melodies. This conversation will also include a biblical component, with a short overview of the significance of various bird species referenced in the Bible. 


A message from Immanuel Congregational Church –

A GHIAA Partner


To celebrate Immanuel Congregational Church’s 200th Anniversary this year, we have invited renowned civil rights leader, Bishop William Barber II, to speak on Sunday, May 5th at 3pm. Bishop Barber is a preacher, social activist, author and sought-after public speaker who became nationally known for his leadership with the Moral Monday movement in North Carolina. He has recently begun a new phase of his work as the founding director of the Center for Public Theology & Public Policy at Yale Divinity School.


The event is free and open to all. We hope that our GHIAA partners will join us on May 5th for an afternoon of “Challenge and Hope”!
