On January 19th, seven Trinity members, Karen and Bob Gardner, Judy LaCroix, George Rockwell, Jean Maurice Calmels, George Duncan, and Mark Benedict traveled to Dorothy Day Hospitality House in Danbury where we prepared and served a meal consisting of meat loaf, roasted potatoes, mixed vegetables, fruit cocktail and assorted donated desserts to over 100 guests.
For several years this group, along with others from Trinity, most notably Martha Dayton, have been serving the needy by providing them with a warm, home-cooked meal on the third Tuesday of the month.
The next scheduled visit is February 16th. Everyone is welcome to join in this ministry.
Most of the meal is prepared at Trinity the night before and then brought to Dorothy Day by 1:00 p.m. The meal is served between 3:15 and 4:45. Most of the volunteers are back to Trinity by 6:00.
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.
