marathon logoMarathon Weekend has arrived!!
17,000 runners and their supporters will be on Trinity's doorstep...

Trinity Church will be hosting a Spaghetti Dinner on Saturday evening at 5:30 and 6:30 in the Undercroft.  If you are interested in attending, or know of runners who may be interested, please click the marathon logo to be taken to a registration page.  Dinners are all-you-care-to-eat for $15. Volunteers are still welcome to help out. We will have a booth at the Marathon Expo at the Convention Center - email Debbie Wiedwald to volunteer to help at the Expo.  Dinner assistance is also needed beginning at 4:30.  Anyone wishing to help can just show up then.
---Please note, there is a wedding in the church at 4:30, so everyone must enter via the outside steps on Broad Steet.---
Sunday morning, Trinity will hold a service of Morning Prayer for race participants at 6:30 a.m.
Also on Sunday morning, Katie's Pancakes will be offering a $5 breakfast for spectators, runners, and everyone else beginning at 6:00 in the Trinity Garden.
8:00 and 10:30 a.m. Services will be held as usual. 
Contrary to popular believe, getting to Trinity on Marathon Sunday is easy, especially for the 10:30 liturgy. Click here for the course map.
All profits from these fund raising events will benefit Trinity's general fund.

Altar Guild members are needed for both services, but especially for the 10:30 liturgy.  Please drop by the Sacristy and speak to the Altar Guild member on duty after the service, or contact Susan Crompton or the Rector for more details.

Altar Decoration Memorials
