Raise Your Voice and Take Action
Monthly Service Opportunities. We will once again be serving at A Wider Circle and S.O.M.E., preparing meals for Catholic Relief Services, and cleaning trails with Rock Creek Conservancy. We will also host our annual Power of One day of service. Details at this SIGN UP GENIUS SITE.Women Who Persisted. Building on our successful exploration of women in the Bible that began last summer, we will reflect on the women who persisted this summer. We will use the same tools – scripture, art and imagination – to look in detail at the lives of Miriam, Hannah & Peninnah, the Canaanite Woman, and Martha & Mary. Led by parishioners Anne Koester and Liz McCloskey, our first series will begin Monday Feb. 4 and meet as well Feb. 11, 25 and March 4 (Note, no session on Feb. 18). Each session will run from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm in McKenna Hall. If interested, please RSVP to Kate Tromble at firstname.lastname@example.org or (202) 903- 2809 by Feb. 1. Volunteer at SOME. Every month, on the fourth Sunday of the month for 40 years Holy Trinity has been serving breakfast and lunch at So Others Might Eat (SOME). The requirement is quite simple, you arrive at 10:00 am and leave at 1:30 pm. In between you serve food, wipe down tables, set places, and generally make the men and women eating feel welcome. To keep this tradition going, we are in need of new volunteers. If you are interested, please contact Patrick McCourt at email@example.com.
Weekend Meals for the Homeless in Georgetown. We continue to welcome new volunteers to staff our weekly meals for the homeless. This is a direct service opportunity in Georgetown on Saturdays or Sundays from 4:15pm to 6:15pm that involves preparing and serving a meal for 50-60 adults as well as light set-up and clean-up duties. We also can make arrangements for you to just “drop off” a menu item at HT or at the meal sites. Contact Mike Conway for more information.
ADVOCACY OPPORTUNITIES: Join the effort to support small family shelters in Washington, DC rather than housing our homeless families in at old DC General site or in random hotels. Contact Tom Woodley for more information about getting involved.
If you are interested in helping out, but looking for a different way to volunteer, there are other options. Please contact Kate Tromble for more information.
