Introducing the Young Families @ Trinity Group! There have been so many young families that have joined the parish recently and we think it would be wonderful if these parents and their children could get to know each other and develop their faith together outside of Sunday Mass. Young Families @ Trinity will meet monthly. If you and your family would like to get more information about Young Families @ Trinity, please email Ryan Pryslak at ryanthesinger82@gmail.com or call 302-743-1201. And please feel free to invite friends from inside and outside of Trinity to attend.

There's an opportunity to work with our ESL students on their English! Sign up sheet will be out on Sundays. It is just 1 hour on a Saturday of your choice. Or you can just drop by on a Saturday to help our ESL students practice their English! Any time you can give is appreciated!

Walking for Friendship House: Friendship House has been selected by Highmark as a beneficiary of this year's Walk for a Healthy Community--and YOU can help raise money for Friendship House by joining Team Trinity for the walk. The date is Saturday, June 3; the place is Bellevue State Park, and the festivities begin with registration at 7:30, with group photo at 8:30 and with the walk taking place between 9 and 11:30. Plenty of parking at Bellevue, and lots of competitive spirit! Participating is easy. You can register as a walker OR a donor, and you choose the amount you donate. However, if you want the snappy t-shirt, your registration fee is $30 or more. If Team Trinity can gather 25 walkers and total pledges of $2,000, an outside donor will give an additional $1,000 to Friendship House! Remember, you can register and donate (but not walk), or you can register, donate, and walk. It's a fun morning, so plan to join rowdy Team Trinity! Jim Bray can help you register, or find registration cards in the Trinity lobby. You can also register online at www.friendship-house.org. Go to Events, then use the drop-down menu for Highmark Walk. Then enter Trinity Episcopal in the team area-- be sure you are joining Team Trinity Episcopal! Make your check out to Friendship House, and mark the memo line Team Trinity Walk. Questions? jimbray611@aol.com or 302-658-5821. Let's walk together to support Friendship House programming to homeless men and women in Wilmington.

Pentecost Sunday is June 4. We are looking for those of you who speak other languages to participate in the service. Please sign up on the sign-up sheet or contact the church office. Currently we are in need of Japanese, Mandarin, Arabic, Russian, other Far Eastern, African and/or Island language. 

"Addiction is a Disease"- Addiction is a devastating, frightening, and confusing disease for anyone to experience. Join us to learn about the complex disease of addiction and how physical, psychological, and spiritual dimensions all play a role in substance abuse disorders. Presenter: Tom Dietzler, Senior Clinical Advisor to the Chief Clinical Officer of Caron Treatment Centers. The presentation will be held on June 21 at 6:00 - 8:00 pm at Trinity Church. Please RSVP by June 14 to TRIAD at 302-655-1153.

Are you a community volunteer? We find that many people who attend Trinity would like to be more engaged in the community, but they find it hard to make the right connections. To help solve this problem, if you are a volunteer at any agency in the community, please sign the sheet in the lobby or send an email to ashlinbray@aol.com. We would like to capture the full range of volunteer involvements, from ESL to Forgotten Cats, from individual tutoring to working in the foster care system, from serving meals at Epiphany House to...whatever! Thank you for helping this effort.

Meal Train -- The Hospitality Committee is constantly looking for ways to enhance how they can better serve members of our community when they are in need.  When a friend or family member is in need, we often say “What can I do to help?”.  Many times the answer is to make a meal.   Unfortunately, sometimes a person will receive three meals one day and zero the next.  To help coordinate meals, Trinity has found Mealtrain.com.   Meal Train can be used for anyone in the parish from the arrival of a new baby, an injury or surgery, extended illnesses to condolences.  You simply identify that parishioner who could use a little support and enter their name, email address and home address as to where to drop off your meal.  A parishioner simply goes to the Mealtrain.com to schedule a day and time to deliver a meal.  They can easily see what is already scheduled and find the days where a meal could be needed.  It can be one meal or as many as that person wants.  If interested, please look at the Meal Train website for additional information. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Lynn Warner at lynncwarner@aol.com or 610-268-5728 or find me at coffee hour.  Thanks for your support.

A Reminder to Parishioners: Please, do not give money to those panhandling outside the church. While some of their stories seem compelling, we are trying to break the cycle of their activities. Contact our partners at Friendship House to learn how you can help our local homeless population.

 

Help Wanted

The “Welcome Committee” at Trinity would like to welcome anyone that is interested in the group. Their purpose is to streamline newcomers into the social aspects of our church. They will greet, gather names and introduce newcomers to congregants at the coffee hour.  Interested?  Contact Susan Fullerton at sjf1521@gmail.com or call (302) 354-5699.

 

We need you!  We are in need of people to help out during the services.  In particular, we need servers for 8:00 am, ushers and “members on duty” for 10:30 and servers and “members on duty” for the 9:30.  If you can help out, please speak with Terry, Ginny or Patty.

 


The Hospitality Committee is looking for volunteers! The time parishioners and visitors spend together after the Sunday services enjoying conversation, coffee and a light snack is a very important part of the life of the parish.  If you are willing to help keep this endeavor going, please contact Fred Thomas at 410-398-7944, fred.thomas2nd@gmail.com or Lynn Warner at 610-268-5728, lynncwarner@aol.com.
