Parishioners for Others
Slavery, Segregation, and Race in Our Parish
We invite Holy Trinity parishioners and others to learn more about the role of slavery, segregation, and race in Holy Trinity’s history. We hope that, in throwing more light on our parish’s past, our work will open doors to reflecting on that past and on its implications for our present, and inspire our daily interactions with others. Visit our website to read the articles.
Volunteer with Georgetown Ministry Center
Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of meeting Kelly Andreae, the new Executive Director of Georgetown Ministry Center. If you are looking for a project, consider making an outreach kit that includes: snacks, hand and foot warmers, foil blankets, baby wipes, tissues, hygiene products, masks and a friendly little note. (Note: we do not include gel or liquid hand sanitizer because we find some people drink it. Wipes are a safer option.) You may drop off at Holy Trinity or order supplies to be shipped directly to GMC.
GMC is also recruiting outreach volunteers to distribute kits and engage individuals experiencing homelessness. Learn more
