Call to Action


Bread Pickup Volunteers Needed

We are just learning that “our” Bread Co. cafe at S. Euclid and Forest Park Ave. is now closing at 3:00 p.m. rather than in the evening. Thus we need volunteers who would be able to be on a roster to pick up leftover bread from there on Monday afternoons shortly before 3 and deliver the bread to the S. Parish Hall. If you would be free for this vital part of our food ministry, please contact Adrienne at or 314-805-8254.

New Exhibit Opening This Weekend

The next exhibit in the Parish Gallery opens this weekend with a reception Friday night from 6-8 p.m.. Clayton Petras uses printmaking to explore the temporality of the body and how we relate to diseases that are inherently a part of it.  His mother was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, depression, and early-onset Parkinson’s disease when he was young, and he tries to visualize those ailments and our relationship to them.  Clayton will also be talking about his work and his process following the 10:30 a.m. service this Sunday, January 19th.  Coffee hour will be held in the north parish hall to give everyone a chance to see his work.  Please join us!

Nominees for Vestry

At the Annual Meeting of Trinity Parish, on January 26th, you will be asked to elect members of the Vestry. Nominated by the deadline of January 7th, for three-year terms, are Joyce LaFontain, Faith Sandler and Bob Crowley. Nominated for a one-year term  (completing the term of Fritzi Baker, who resigned) is Carlos Daughaday. Thank you to all of them for stepping up into leadership in our community.

Annual Meeting Brunch!

Sunday, January 26th, is our Annual Meeting. There will be the 8 and 10:30 o’clock services as usual with brunch in the S. Parish Hall in between. The meeting will take place as we enjoy the food and fellowship from 9 until 10:15. We ask everyone to contribute something you’d like to eat at that hour - fruit, cheese, pastries, a breakfast casserole - your favorite thing!

Helpers are needed for setting up tables beforehand, receiving and arranging the lovely food that you all will bring, and then tidying up afterwards. Please contact Adrienne if you can help - at or 314-805-8254.

Last Sunday of 2019, St Peter’s Episcopal Church offered a great meal to a bunch of hungry folks..

Food Ministry News

This year is off to a fast start! Pantry and Hot Lunch have both been very busy. The mild weather has contributed to that most likely. However, tomorrow (Thursday) begins a rapid descent into winter as we normally know it. The high on Sunday will be a freezing 23! 

We need to stock up on Hot Hand handwarmers. The requests will come pouring in beginning tomorrow. 

BOLO for forks and spoons. If you are a Goodwill shopper or any thrift store or if you are down-sizing and need to rehome your stainless steel, please remember Trinity Food Ministry. Our forks and spoons are in a constant state of dwindle. Whether these end up in the trash or in a bag, who knows? The utensils are simply gone, and we need more!

April 9 is Maundy Thursday and we will again hold our TFM Foot Ministry. If you have excess towels (bath or hand), please drop them by the Pantry. Clean but used or even frayed is fine. 

Always needed at Pantry: 
Bar soap, toothpaste, single (or double) toothbrushes, canned meat, and fruit. 
Hoodies, men’s gloves, mylar blankets, Gold Bond lotion 

Trinity Art Club 
TAC is back in action! Saturday mornings, 8:30 – 11:30 am, SPH (unless otherwise noted). This week, Lois Ingrum is the co-director. Come and see!

Book Discussion Group

On Saturday, January 25th, Trinity Book Group will be discussing “ A Prayer for Owen Meany,” a story about boys growing up in a small town in New Hampshire which centers on issues of faith and “being called by God.” We will be meeting at 7pm at the home of Anne Hennig and Frank Schottler, at 2611 Porter.  We may watch some of the movie which is based on the book.

In February we plan to read and discuss “The Overstory” by Richard Powers .  In March we will read “People of the Book” by Geraldine Brooks. Please come.  Everyone is welcome.
