Friend of Trinity: Patricia Munoz, a friend of Trinity who participated faithfully in Noonday Prayer at Twin Pines, died on Tuesday, February 26.  No service was held. She and Joanne Harwood were close friends and fellow members of the residents’ council at Twin Pines.  Patricia was able to attend Joanne’s service because one of the Twin Pines drivers volunteered to bring her on  Saturday, Feb. 2.  She loved the service (and the singing).  Special prayers were offered for her at Morning Prayer on February 27. Rest in peace, Patricia.

The Pledge to Care for Creation is part of living as the Jesus Movement. It’s a promise to protect and renew this good Earth and all who call it home. It’s a promise to share our stories, stand with those who are most vulnerable, and live more gently on the Earth.

  • During Lent, reflect on the Pledge alone or in a group, with the help of the Reflection Guide
  • During Lent, decide on your 3 commitments to be more LOVING, LIBERATING and LIFE-GIVING in relation to Creation
  • By Easter Sunday (April 21), take the Pledge, including your specific, personal commitments
  • On Earth Day (April 22), the day after Easter, let’s celebrate at least 1,000 pledges
  • All year long, keep your specific commitments to be more loving, liberating and life-giving

The pledge and reflection guide are at: https://www.episcopalchurch.org/creation-care/pledge

Cleaning in the room in the parish basement next to the kitchen will begin on Monday, March 18. If you things stored in this room please talk to Krista.
