Vestry Nominating Committee - 
The Vestry Nominating Committee is looking for future church leaders and we want your input! We would like to encourage you, the members of our congregation, to participate in the process by submitting names for consideration. You may also submit your own name.  It would be helpful to include background information on the nominee, including talents and interests. A vestry term is four years. Candidates must have been a member of the Church for one year in order to stand for election. Vestry members must be communicants in good standing, over the age of 21, and have been confirmed or received into the Episcopal Church by a bishop of the Episcopal Church.  Nominees must also have provided financial support, as confirmed by the Church’s stewardship records, within the six months prior to the annual meeting.  Vestry members are expected to provide leadership to the congregation in support of the mission of the church, including stewardship through annual pledges; to attend all vestry meetings; to participate actively in committee work; and to engage thoughtfully in the direction of Trinity’s business and activities.  Please send nominations (of yourself or others) to Kriste Buck at kbuck@trinitynola.com or call 522-0276.  Deadline for receipt of nominations is February 24, 2018.  Thank you for your thoughtful consideration.

Godly Play will be held in the school library throughout Lent. Ashley Bond will lead a community class for all Godly Play children. The story presented is called “Faces of Easter,” which helps children prepare for Easter. Over the next few weeks, children will hear the stories of Christ’s journey toward the cross and resurrection.



Trinity's missionary in the Philippines, Kellan Lyman has been serving since September 2016 through the Young Adult Service Corps (YASC) of the Episcopal Church. Following a call to serve God's people and creation, she volunteers with the Episcopal Church in the Philippines' economic development program. She is coordinating a new sustainable rice farming project which reduces water use and greenhouse gas emission and improves farmers' livelihoods. She is returning at the end of February for a second year to implement a farmer outreach program in Episcopal congregations as a way to fulfill God's call to be good stewards of creation. She will be sharing some pictures and stories from her time as a missionary during coffee hour on Sunday, February 25.
