Tuesday, April 7, 2020Tuesday of Holy WeekAn Invitation from Michael Hull,Easter Flower CoordinatorOne of the aspects of Easter that I will miss most is the flowers in the Trinity St. Paul's sanctuary. For the past many years, several of us have spent our Holy Saturday arranging the resurrection display at church. We buy the flowers from a local vender, who grows the plants themselves. Because local businesses so badly need the income this year, I did not cancel the Easter flower order. The order this year is being financed by a special gift.Sharing the flowers in the homes of our parish family may be a nice way of reminding us that we are a community in Christ, in spite of our physical distance. After the flowers are delivered this week, I will not unpackage them. This Saturday, April 11th, I will place them outside and monitor them at the back steps but not handle them. I will be at the parking lot door of Trinity St. Paul's on Saturday from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. A person from each parish family may come Saturday afternoon during these hours to pick up a plant. Please be careful to keep six feet of distance, and not to gather and socialize. Thanks!Michael

Dear Friends,As an aide for our social distancing keeping of Holy Week, we plan a series of four E-Updates for Maundy Thursday through Easter Day. They will be sent the day before each celebration. So, Maundy Thursday will be sent tomorrow, Wednesday, April 8th. Each will include the Collect and Bible Lessons of the Day. As on recent Friday Updates, we will share internet connections if you would like to watch the liturgies within the Episcopal tradition.May you be richly blessed with God’s Holy Spirit in this Holy Season. Please pray for those who suffer from the virus, for those who have died, and for all who are anxious.Holy Week Blessings, Fr. Robert +
