Call to Action



Trinity Neighborhood Camp Set for Monday, July 29, through Friday, August 2

Volunteers and Donations Needed. 
The camp team chose the theme: “I am who I am”. The curriculum will explore awareness of self in community. Many thanks to Hazel Kirk for donating the book “I am Enough”. This is one of 5 stories we will share with our campers.

Camp week is July 29 - August 2 , 8-12:30. 


We have raised half the funds we need. We have some volunteers. We still need 3 adult mentors, 4 teen counselors, and people to help with food and filling backpacks.


If you can help, contact Barb Holmes at 314 303 6116 or Kathleen McManis 314 422 3342

Jesus Said What? At The Table @ 5 PM on Saturday
During the month of June at the Table on Saturdays at 5 PM, Fr. Jon will lead a discussion on some of the difficult sayings of Jesus found in the bible. This Sunday we will explore Jesus’ unsettling words about family division.

Upcoming Events



Trinity Book Group June 15th 
Trinity's next Book Group will meet on Saturday, June 15, at the home of Rachel Steinbrueck, 7546 Milan, at 7 pm. We will discuss "Where the Crawdads Sing" by Delia Owens. This book topped the New York Times Fiction Best Sellers list for 12 weeks of 2019. The story describes the life and adventures of a young girl named Kaya in the swamps of North Carolina. 



Game On! TFM Community Game Night June 15th

When we opened during the Polar Vortex, one of our neighbors, John Dixon, asked if he could bring his backgammon board in the evening and enjoy some game time. We also found a checker board and some decks of cards for those who wanted to play. It was a lot of fun and added a good deal to the warmth of the evening (inside!!).


John and others loved it so much that we want to do it again! The first one will be held Saturday, June 15, 6-9 p.m. in the South Parish Hall. Remember the Table begins at 5 p.m. so, afterwards, come on over for a bit of fun.


Backgammon, dominoes, cards – or whatever game you might like to bring. Bring a game, bring a snack, and come prepared to have a lot of fun. (Sodas acceptable, but no alcohol, please.)



Trinity Sunday Parish Picnic June 16th 
The Parish Picnic will be held on Trinity Sunday after the 10:30 AM service on June 16th in Tower Grove Park at the Sons of Rest Pavilion. It's just inside the Grand Avenue entrance if you veer to the left. We will be joined by parishioners from St. John’s Episcopal Church. Main dishes provided. Please bring sides.



Trauma First Aid Training July 10th

On July 10th, Stop the Bleed STL will be doing a trauma first aid training from 4 until 5:30 in the S. Parish Hall. It is free. A trauma first aid kit will be for sale for $10, and includes the tourniquet that is the focus of this program. The purpose of this nationwide effort is to equip regular folks like us with the skill to stop a traumatic bleed from an accident, a gunshot, whatever. To register, go to



Trinity Wants YOU to play Softball beginning July 12th 
Fr. Jon is organizing an Episcopal softball league, and you are invited to be on Trinity’s team. Thus far, Christ Church Cathedral, St. John’s, St. Paul’s, St. Mark’s, St. Martin’s, and Holy Communion are recruiting. The schedule will be announced in the next few weeks, but games will likely be played on three Friday evenings in July. All players get a free Trinity T-Shirt. Email Fr. Jon or sign up on the white board in the Narthex at church.



Trinity Food Ministry



Dispatch from the Food Pantry
It’s being a challenging week, as Barbi, our food ministry manager, is away. Thank you to all the volunteers who’ve pitched in – going above and beyond. One of our regular guests talked with me as I was trying to shoo the last ones out Tuesday afternoon. She said, “I know, I know, but it’s just so comfortable here. 

You know, I really don’t cook much for myself at home, so I don’t eat much. But here, at Trinity, I have four nice meals a week and a community to be part of for a couple of hours.” It’s a good thing.
