We are grateful for Howard’s presence among us and extend our condolences to all who loved him.

Grief Group:  The grief support group for parents who have lost children will begin meeting at the Hospice office next week rather than at Trinity.  They expressed gratitude for the use of our space for the past two years.  Please take note of the new location and refer anyone who grieves the loss of a child to this wonderful group.

Shrove Tuesday Fundraiser:  Thanks to everyone who made this event a resounding success!  Over $600 was raised to support the Little Free Food Pantry and Episcopal Relief and Development ongoing efforts to relieve suffering in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

Plate Offering Sunday:  The plate offering Sunday will be for Episcopal Relief and Development efforts in Puerto Rico.  If you didn’t make it to the Shrove Tuesdaysupper this past Tuesday, this is your chance to contribute!

Bishop’s Committee Retreat:  will be from 9:30 to 1:30 on Saturday, February 24.  Next Bishop’s Committee meeting is Sunday, March 4, following coffee hour. Please note that the meeting is the first instead of the second Sunday because of semester break.

Bible Study:  CANCELLED THIS WEEK.  Bible Study – a 5 week study on the Gospel of Mark begins Monday February 5 from 6:30 – 7:30 pm here at Trinity Church. Come when you are able, no need to commit to the whole series if your schedule does not permit. You can bring your own bible if you life or use one from the church.

The entry fee is $25 per person and teams can have as many as 8 people. If you are interested in being part of a Trinity team, see Amy for more details.

St. Patrick’s Day Dinner:  Save the Date!  Our annual St. Patrick’s Day Dinner will be held on Saturday, March 17 – but the time will change.  Because it’s a weekend, the parade will be held at 11, so we will begin serving at 11:30 a.m.
