You still have time to register for a 2-Day VISIONS, Inc. workshop.
VISIONS Inc. is offering three 1.5 day workshops for those within the Episcopal Church in Connecticut community who are interested in expanding ideas and creating community around concepts of diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice.
Each workshop combines personal and group experiential learning, conceptual theory, and opportunities to practice new approaches. Some highlights from the workshop offered are:
The workshops will take place on Zoom. The first session is full but there is still space available in the second two.
VISIONS, Inc. is one of the various programs ECCT is offering to satisfy the requirement in Resolution 7 from our 2020 diocesan convention that calls for all clergy, lay leaders, vestries, church and diocesan staff, and those appointed to diocesan committees to complete a course on dismantling racism.
Space is limited and the two remaining sessions are filling up. Register today for the session you would like to attend.
For further information about the program contact The Rev. Ranjit K. Mathews, Canon for Mission Advocacy, Racial Justice & Reconciliation, at email@example.com.

Our parish purse ministry allows us to fill purses/bags with toiletries and other items that we distribute to people who are experiencing homelessness or transitioning from a shelter to living on their own. Please consider supporting this ministry in these ways:
Make your check payable to Trinity Parish with “Purse Ministry” on the memo line. Checks can be mailed to the office or placed in the plate on Sunday. Or, put cash in an envelope with “Purse Ministry” written on the outside and put it in the plate on Sunday or drop it off during office hours.
Toiletries and other small items (e.g., travel-size shampoos, soaps, and conditioners; notepads, etc.) are welcome. They should be left in the Purse Ministry Room in the basement on the right at the bottom of the stairs near the office entrance. Thank you for making this program possible!
On Friday Oct. 21, Trinity teamed up with Wethersfield Family Learning to host a potluck dinner party. The event was organized with Kim Bobbin, Family and Early Childhood Coordinator in Wethersfield with families who participated in the Family Learning Center and included members of the Syrian family we are helping to resettle.
