The What Can On Person Do group is pleased to announce that the Pray-for-Peace Caravan will be stopping at Trinity on Sunday, September 11th between 12:30 pm and 1:00 pm. The Pray-for-Peace Caravan is an event organized to encourage people to pray together to help overcome violence in our society and bring about peace in our world. This year’s Pray-for-Peace event will form a car caravan made up of cars driving from Logan Airport in Boston to Ground Zero, NYC on the fifteen anniversary of September 11th.
To support this caravan, Trinity will provide a place for the Pray-for-Peace Caravan to stop for a few minutes, pray together, and pickup additional people who like to join the caravan on its way to the World Trade Center. Pastor Kathie is organizing an interfaith clergy group to sponsor a 15-minute vigil for event participants, and volunteers from the Mission and Outreach Commission will be putting together snacks and lunches to go for folks in the caravan.
Members of Trinity and other faith communities in our area – as well as all members of the Greater Newtown area – are invited to participate.
For more information about the organization sponsoring this event, go to: http://prayforpeacewalk.org/index.html. We hope you will plan to join us on September 11th to pray together for peace in our time.
Our caring does not end at our church doors. God calls us to reach out to our community and the world. At Trinity we cultivate a culture that encourages members to regularly engage with, listen to, walk with, learn from, and develop relationships with those around us representing different racial and ethnic groups and social classes as we discern how to better prepare for and witness the Kingdom of God in the larger community.
We invite you to check these pages often for news on activities and insight from parishioners as we move forward on this journey.
Why is the Trinity Bell Ringing?
Parishioner Gordon Strother, as part of a ministry created by deathpenalty.org, tolls the bell at 6pm for two minutes on the evenings of a scheduled execution anywhere in the United States. Gordon has participated in this ministry for over 12 years.
