Trinity Medical Mission June 2017
Thanks to the generosity of this community and others who
give of their time, talent and treasure, this year’s medical
mission trip was a huge success. 
Fifty people, about half of whom are heathcare providers and half of whom provide support, saw approximately 3,000 human patients and 1,000 animals in 5 days.

Stewardship

Over the summer months, as many of our parishioners escape the heat and humidity of New Orleans for the solace of cooler climates, Trinity in the past has seen a substantial downturn in giving.  If you are traveling this summer, please remember that you don’t have to be “in church” to give. Trinity offers multiple ways to give including text-to-give (text 504-504-217- 2015), online giving through our website (trinitynola.com/donatenow), and recurring giving. If you haven’t already done so, please consider enrolling to make automated weekly or monthly gifts (https://trinitynola.com/document.doc?id=1882).  This is a fast and easy way to support Trinity, especially during the summer months.  Also, you can mail in your pledge! Thank you and blessings to you for a wonderful summer!

  

Mission and Outreach

Trinity Loaves & Fishes is collecting donations for summer service! All of our sites focused on children are switching from after school programming to summer camp programming. We provide healthy snacks to these groups and every donation helps! We need donations of bread, jelly(grape or strawberry), and non-perishable snack items such as granola bars. Please place donated items in the baskets marked “TLF” in the back of the church or chapel, or in the “TLF” box across from Kit McLean’s office. Thank you!

Loaves and Fishes Africa - Elizabeth Awuor is one of the many faces Loaves and Fishes Africa. A mother and widow with four children, Elizabeth is infected with the AIDS virus.
