March Gathering Dates

Just a reminder that there will be no class on March 24, Palm Sunday; or March 31, Easter.

If you would like to contribute to the 2024 Easter flowers and music in memory of a friend or family member, or as an offering of thanksgiving, please fill out the form here and send it to the parish office, along with your check, by Monday, March 25. Checks, which may be for any amount, should be made payable to Trinity Church and earmarked “Easter Memorials.” Names of those in whose memory contributions have been made will be listed in the Easter Vigil and Easter Day bulletins.

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

Please join us for the Maundy Thursday service

on March 28thduring which musical selections

from the Stabat Mater will be played.

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.


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”!

Trinity's Book Group will next 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)
