A New Vicar:  The Bishop’s Committee is pleased to announce that the Rev. Amy Fallon has accepted our call to be Trinity’s new vicar.  Rev. Fallon has five years of successful parish leadership experience in Hartford, Connecticut and Tiffin, Ohio (population 17,000+).  In addition, she has substantial ecumenical experience in campus ministry – first, as university vicar, the Episcopal Church at the University of Connecticut, and most recently, as campus pastor at Grace Place Campus Ministry at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, a combined ELCA Lutheran-Episcopal post.  She brings energy, creativity, and a deep commitment to spreading the word of the Gospel to share with us. Rev. Fallon’s first Sunday with us will be August 20.  We are indeed blessed – and, as Rev. Joe Chambers, Canon to the Ordinary, consistently reminded us over the last 15 months, we rejoice that “God is in the process!”

Adult Formation:

July 26 – Carrol Davenport

We will talk about how we can support and be present with people who are seriously or terminally ill as well as how we support people in grief.

ElectricalElectrical Work:  Electrical work will begin in the kitchen and undercroft the week of July 31.  Please be aware that Jackson Electric will be using that space for work purposes and move optional activities elsewhere for the next few weeks.  They will begin the work in the sanctuary after the work in the undercroft. They are aware that we need the space to be usable on Sundays.

Transition Sunday for Pete and Julia:  This Sunday, July 23, is a “transition Sunday” for Julia DeLancey and Pete Kelly.  Pete is the new Dean of the College of Education at the University of Mary Washington in Virginia; Julia will be teaching in the Art History major in the College of Arts and Sciences.  We gather to thank them for their many deeds of service in our church and community and to wish them well as they set their feet on a new path.  (Not to mention that it’s your last chance to indulge in Pete’s famous artichoke dip at coffee hour!)

Transition Schedule for Priests:

July 23 – Carrol presides and preaches; transition Sunday for Pete and Julia
July 30 – Carrol presides and preaches; transition Sunday for Carrol
August 6 –  Ray Hartjen presides and preaches; full Eucharist
August 13 – Morning Prayer (lay led); no Eucharist
August 20 – Amy Fallon presides and preaches (new vicar)

Addressing the New Vicar:  What would the new vicar want to be called?  Amy would like to be called Amy.  If that is not comfortable for you, Rev. Amy is her next preference.

The Communication Committee:  The Communication Committee is seeking new members to replace members who have moved on to new locations and new duties.  The Committee is primarily responsible for maintaining the WHAT, the Trinity Website, and Social Media.  Never used these tools before?  Don’t worry, we’ll teach you.  Owning a computer and having a good Internet connection are a plus.  Send expressions of interest or questions to Kevin Minch at kevin.minch@gmail.com.

Mini Food Pantry

Little Food Pantry: Donations are needed.  Nonperishables, hygiene products, fresh produce that can withstand summer heat.  Please do not bring bread at this time – water condenses in the bread bag and mold follows.  Fall weather will be better for that.
