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 discuss Jesus’ seemingly harsh instructions about cutting all family ties to follow him.

Sunday School/Childcare

Simplified Sunday school continues during the summer months in the North Parish Hall during the 10:30 AM service. This Sunday’s storyteller is Cheryl Wobbe. Professional Childcare provided by Katie Wolf.

9:30 AM Sunday Bible Study

We finish our journey through Acts at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday in the South Parish Hall.

Summer Schedule

The Parish Office will close at noon on Fridays during the months of June, July, and August.

Blessing of the Bicycles July 13th @ 8 AM

The Blessing of the Bicycles is scheduled for Saturday July 13th at 8 AM. After the blessing, riders are welcome to participate in either a 20 or 40 mile group ride. T-shirts will be for sale, and a professional framed image of Madonna Del Ghisalo will be raffled off. We are adding a 5 and under obstacle/safety course in the parking lot, and lunch will be served after the group rides. Raffle money, T-shirt profits, and donations will go to Trinity Food Ministry.

We still need volunteers to help cook lunch. Contact Fr. Jon if you’d like to volunteer.

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.

60 Minutes recently had an episode examining the devastating effects of the high velocity ammunition now available to shooters, and used so tragically in many of the mass shootings around the country. Car crashes and other kinds of accidents can result in similar acute bleeds. 

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. 

Please publicize this in your community and sign up yourself. People must register. To do so, go to
Questions? Contact Adrienne Fly at or 314-805-8254.

Please Use Your eScrip Card at Schnuck’s

While Schnuck’s has instituted a Rewards Program for its customers, the eScrip Program continues. We count on $1000 per year from that. Apparently one has to choose between eScrip and Rewards – the former benefits the food ministry, the latter benefits you. We hope you’ll choose to help feed hungry people.


Don’t have an eScrip card? Contact Adrienne at or 314-805-8254 and we’ll fix you up with one.

Hot Lunch Servers Needed July 14th
If you’ve never helped at Sunday Hot Lunch, here is your opportunity. We need 6 to 8 people to help serve on  July 14th. Here’s what’s involved: Come to the S. Parish Hall by 1:15 at the latest. Wear comfy shoes. The Trinity “Innkeeper”, will enlist you to help set places at the tables, fix beverages, and get things ready for hosting up to 100 people, who come for lunch between 2 and 2:30. Then we stay to help clean up – a speedy process that usually has us finished by 3. 

Give it a try! For newcomers, it’s a great way to get acquainted with other parishioners and with the major outreach ministry of our church. Contact Adrienne at or 314-805-8254.

We keep in our prayers those who are ill or in need
