Have you heard that BREAD RISES?


On Monday May 4, 2018 at 7:00 PM you are invited to join the members of Trinity Episcopal Church Justice Ministry at the Nehemiah Action being held at the Celeste Center, as BREAD presents solutions to problems plaguing our community. Solutions proposed this year include those on the issues of Affordable Housing, Employment, Identification, and Restorative Justice. Trinity and 53 other congregations of the BREAD Organization strive to have over 4,000 supporters attending this event so that the cry for justice can become a reality. As the ancient sage asked: “If not us, Who? If not now, When?”
For tickets or additional information please contact Catherine Cheek, Jake Cunliffe, or the Rector.
The Nehemiah Action is BREAD’s largest community event of the year where we will push for solutions to community problems! This will take place at the Celeste Center on the Ohio State Fairgrounds (717 E. 17th Ave., Columbus, OH). Registration begins at 6:15 p.m. The event begins at 7 p.m.

From the Parish Office:


We are grateful for your continuing gifts of toiletries (soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes and body lotion – no cosmetics please), self-opening snacks and men’s athletic socks.  We have many visitors throughout the week who are need of these items as we are a cooling station in the summer and a warming station in the winter and we provide funds for state IDs for homeless people. Like In The Garden we are not equipped to handle clothing and recommend the United Methodist Free Store, 946 Parsons Ave. (614) 443-1713; and the Open Shelter, 61 E. Mound St., (614) 222-2885. Thank you so much!


The only supplies we need right now are: coffee, juice boxes, shampoo, soap, toilet paper.
In order to help clean and store things properly, we do not need other toiletries or clothes at this point, and thank you for your generosity in the past.  Going forward, please take any extra clothes you may wish to donate to the Free Store on Parsons Ave.  We are not able to store and dispense clothing at ITG in the future!  
We are seeking additional Trinity folks who want to volunteer to guide and sustain this important ministry!  Please prayerfully consider if you have a call to work with ITG, and contact Father Burnett or Jake Cunliffe if you have further questions.

Altar Decoration Memorials

If you would like to place a flower memorial or thanksgiving in the Sunday bulletin, contact Diane Donato in the Parish Office via email or at 221-5351.  A donation of $50 is suggested, but any reasonable amount will be accepted.  Only a few dates are spoken for currently.
