Sadly we report that Bob Park died on Saturday evening.  His daughter, Mindi Kell, called the Parish Office today to say that Bob had passed after listening to the Buckeye’s game on Saturday.   Funeral arrangements are still unknown at this time. Plans are being made through Newcomer Funeral home and should be posted on their website soon. Check here for details.


Father of all, we pray to you for Bob, and for all those whom
we love but see no longer. Grant to them eternal rest. Let
light perpetual shine upon them. May his soul and the souls
of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Upcoming event...

Stevens BookBeccaStevensTrinity Church will host Becca Stevens in November for an exciting and uplifting weekend. Prepare by reading one (or more) of her books. More information and books are available here.
Complete information about Becca can be found here.
What started as an impossible dream-to build a café that employs women recovering from prostitution and addiction-is helping to fuel an astonishing movement to bring freedom and fair wages to women producers worldwide where tea and trafficking are linked by oppression and the opiate wars.
Becca Stevens started the Thistle Stop Café to empower women survivors. But when she discovered a connection between café workers and tea laborers overseas, she embarked on a global mission called "Shared Trade" to increase the value of women survivors and producers across the globe.
