U Hospitalizations Please call the parish office or either Fr. Andy or Mtr. Donna at home whenever you or a family member go into the hospital, even if you’ve signed the hospital clergy card! Do not count on the hospital to call the parish, they probably will not.

U When you are discharged from the hospital, please call the office and let us know as the hospitals will not inform us of your discharge whether to home or to another facility.

U Parish Prayer List: To add to the prayer list, please call the church office. We update on a monthly basis. Let us know if a person needs to stay on our list.

U For your safety please stay out of the Tower room while it is being restored. Thank you.

Our New Adopted School in Kajo-Keji is the March Mission of the Month

After many years of fruitful ministry to Kerwa and Mondikolok Primary Schools, we have been assigned a new Primary School to adopt. The Episcopal Church of Sudan is concentrating on seven schools, instead of supporting 28 schools at merely survival levels. Other agencies have taken over the restoration of the remaining schools including Kerwa and Mondikolok Primary Schools. Hence Trinity Easton’s support will shift to one of the seven. That school is Loopo Primary School, which will receive support from Trinity Easton, the Cathedral Church of the Nativity, Bethlehem and the Church of the Mediator in Allentown. (Read more about it in the Citadel and on our blog, TrinEast The Mission/Outreach Team

Current and Upcoming

U Confirmation Classes: Young people seeking confirmation who are in 7th through 10-11th Grade will take place Sundays in the Christian Ed. Building, 2nd floor starting at 9 am. The class will be led by Mike Burke, Pete Olieman and Fr. Gerns.

U Early Communion Class: Sundays in Lent after the 10:30 service in the Chapel. Students will be presented at the Maundy Thursday liturgy, April 6. This class will be led by David Reed and Carmen Wilson.

U Praying with the Desert Fathers & Mothers (formerly listed as Benedictine Quiet Day): Presented by Br. Chad-Anselm, OSB, Saturday, March 25, 2006, 12:00 PM-4:30 PM in the Chapel – The Desert Fathers and Mothers were early Christians of the Middle East. They lived in the Middle East in the fourth and fifth century and they lived as Solitaries around established Christian Communities. Their work to be closer to Christ by living and working alone in constant prayer became an example of faithfulness that strengthened the church. Come join Br. Chad-Anselm as we explore who these people were, the example they set and the challenges and problems they experienced. There will be opportunities for prayer, meditation and discussion during the afternoon.

U Spring Cleanup Will Be On April 1st @ 8:30 am with a rain date of April 8th. Anyone wishing to help out should bring a rake or any other necessary yard tools. Please use the signup sheet at the back of the church.

U Church School Easter Project: On Palm Sunday, Church School children will be participating in an Easter project.

There is a list in the back of church of items needed to fill the baskets and bags. Please sign up if you wish to donate.

U The “Bread And Milk Miracle” Has Happened! We made a request in January for persons or families to take on the provision of bread and milk for the weekly Ark Soup Kitchen meal. The following people have responded, and we thank them for their support. Week 1 – the Vigliones; Week 2 – the Burkes; Week 3 – The Morrisons; and Week 4 – the Diettericks. Week 5 (4 times/year) has had no volunteers yet, so if you see this as a ministry for you, please call or e-mail me, and I c an give you the dates and particulars. Thanks.

U Prayer Companions A member of the Spirituality Circle is available after each service to sit in prayerful companionship with anyone who desires it. If you would like some extra time devoted to a special prayer need or concern, you will find one of us seated in the front pew on the Gospel side of the sanctuary (in front of the pulpit) after the Saturday evening and both Sunday morning services. From this pew we shall move to a more private area for us to silently or in our hearts best language give voice to your prayer.
