TaizeLenten evenings of Taizé Chant,
New Zealand Night Prayer & Soup

This year planned for the Tuesdays of Lent. Weekly through March 27 at 6:15 p.m. in the Nave of Trinity Church. This beautiful twilight service of prayers taken from A New Zealand Prayer Book, chants of Taizé, silence and prayerful meditation will be followed by a simple Lenten supper of soup and bread. All are encouraged to experience this uplifting service and the wonderful fellowship.

Renovation, Painting - a group project for Lent

Spend some upcoming Saturdays with fellow Trinity members, as we give a much needed facelift to the 3rd floor rental space in the Parish House. In an effort to make this space more attractive to potential tenants, basic renovation is planned, including washing walls, painting, replacing and cleaning ceiling tiles. Many hands will make this a fun and easy project. Work continues soon and all help is welcome - contact Nick Tepe here for details.
