Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also...Luke 12:34
The Rev. Jeffrey Mello was elected as XVI Bishop Diocesan of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut on the sixth ballot.
Rev. Mello addressed the convention via a projected Zoom video call:
“I am humbled and I am honored that you have chosen me to be your 16th bishop of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut,” said Rev. Mello. “With my whole heart, my whole mind, and my whole body I accept your election and invitation to serve as your next bishop diocesan...I cannot wait to be with you, grow with you, to join you in the work that lays ahead.”
The consecration is scheduled to take place October 15, 2022, at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford.
Trinity Parish is now officially a part of the Heritage Walk.

MAY IS THE MONTH TO PICK UP EXTRA TOOTHPASTE AND DEODORANT
Last year we helped out Camp Hispaniola, summer camps for kids in Haiti and the Dominican Republic where more than 450 campers attend and receive a bag filled with personal care items, underwear and a camp t-shirt. Camp Hispaniola has asked us to help out again this year by donating deodorant and toothpaste for the campers’ goodie bags. There’ll be a collection basket at the back of the church throughout the month of May.
Wednesday Holy Communion Service for Peace will continue through Easter Season. We’ll meet at noon to pray for peace in Ukraine and other troubled places in the world. We invite everyone to join us for this quiet and peaceful time of prayer.

Richard Rohr Meditation discussions
Saturday mornings 8am-9/9:30am
We have no set agendas, but simply engage in a wide-ranging spiritual discussion built on our readings of the daily meditations from Rohr's Center for Action and Contemplation. It is free to sign up for the CAC Daily Meditations. Although Rohr is a Franciscan priest, the meditations often come from other theologians, and even from Episcopalians on occasion! For a link to our Saturday zoom gathering, please email Garth Myers at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. We are a small group in number, but mighty in spirit and welcoming love.
