Events and Announcements  

Eucharistic Visitors - We welcome you to join a Eucharistic Visitor on a home communion visit and share in our ministry of presence, healing and hope. We offer a listening ear and a compassionate heart. Prayers are lifted up for the patient, their family and friends, as well as for ourselves. Have any questions, or want to arrange a home visit for a loved one, or join the ministry of companion visiting, contact Deacon Alyce at ajefferson@trinitynola.com.

Confirmation Service - Bishop’s Annual Visit On Sunday, May 13, the Rt. Rev. Morris K. Thompson will be joining us for his annual visit. It is a time that he performs Baptisms and Confirmations, and receives members into the Episcopal Church during the 10:30 am service. There will be a reception following the service.

In our Baptismal Covenant, we promise to “seek and serve all persons, loving our neighbors as ourselves” and to “strive for justice and peace among all people and respect the dignity of every human being.” These vows were incorporated into Trinity’s Undoing Racism Principles when the Vestry approved the latter as an amendment to our church’s bylaws. Thus, after more than thirty years of work by dedicated parishioners, it officially became part of Trinity’s culture to work towards becoming an antiracist church. Holding workshops led by the People’s Institute has been one of strategies adopted to achieve this goal. The past two have been organized in collaboration with a church in the 9th Ward and both have been spiritually based and consequently, powerful and deeply moving. We have a workshop planned for May 10-11-12, to be held at Trinity, and we invite you to join us. Workshop hours: Thursday, May 10 - 6-8 pm; Friday, May 11 - 8:30-4:30 and Saturday, May 12 - 8:30-4:30. Please contact Cathy Posey at cathyposey@hotmail.com or 376-5284 or any one of the Community Ministry Committee members listed below.
