The Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church, on the devastation in Oklahoma:
The prayers of Episcopalians are with the people of Oklahoma in the midst of this tragic event. May the spirit of God hover over the broken, lost, and grieving, and may they meet the love of God in their neighbors’ responses.

The Very Rev. Justin Alan Lindstrom, Dean, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Oklahoma City:
Currently we are collecting funds. This is the easiest and best way to get people the help they need. We will use the funds for  water, food, shelter, and rebuilding.

Thanks to Kent Phillips and everyone who helped make the
Village Valuable Sale a big success!

Between loading the truck on Friday evening (special thanks to Tom Belcher for doing a yeoman's job of hauling everything down from the third floor to the curb!!) and setting up and running the sale on Saturday, about 15 Trinity members offered support for the sale. Appreciation goes to hosts Hal and Phyllis Duryee for opening their sidewalk and home to us. A total of $1,280.70 was raised to support the general fund of Trinity Church. Left-over items were donated to the Salvation Army, with a few valuable items being reserved for future fund raising sales.

Memorial Day, Monday, May 27 -
The Church, Parish House and Parish Office will be closed. No services or meetings will be held that day.



Please don't forget our neighbors on the street. New dry socks are essential for this time of year. We have many weekday requests for snacks and canned self-opening food items as well. Remember to save hotel toiletries from your travels. All donations are greatly appreciated.

See Karen Peeler this Sunday for raffle tickets on a gorgeous quilt to benefit ECSF grants to Trinity and other churches! Maude Haeger, whose quilts Quilthave been exhibited in shows throughout the country, has created the Spirit of the Wind quilt to ECSF to raise funds to help Ohio families emerge from homelessness and unemployment. The artist writes: “The word spirit has many connotations, beginning with the Holy Spirit which is to be our comforter and our prompter towards those things that will help others. May the Holy Spirit bless and inspire our Ohio community to wave our banner high and help us win the battle against poverty!” Chances cost $10 each or 6 for $50. You can buy chances from Karen or on ECSF's website, The Spirit of the Winds quilt will be raffled Aug. 17 at ECSF’s Bike Fest in Dayton. You need not be present to win. ECSF is the diocese's source of grants for community ministry. Trinity was awarded $4,000 in ECSF grants this year for the ID ministry and In the Garden.
