First Look: A Mission Plan for Holy Trinity Church Inwood
During the summer members of the Vestry and congregation met with the Vicar to study the Bible and to hash out a vision for replanting Holy Trinity. You can have a first look at a draft of the mission plan here. Feedback welcome! (Please email the Vicar directly at email@example.com.)
Br. Anthony Zuba to speak on social justice, organizing after church on Sunday, September 24
Br. Anthony is a Capuchin Franciscan friar who just joined the staff at Church of the Good Shepherd, Inwood. He has been an editor in New York, a teacher in Baltimore, and an organizer in Boston. A Roman Catholic, he entered the Capuchin order in 2011 and made his perpetual profession of vows in 2016. At Good Shepherd he seeks to form disciples who will promote care for creation, housing justice, immigration reform, and a living wage.
Br. Anthony will join us for church at Holy Trinity and be available at Coffee Hour for fellowship and to answer questions.
Mark your calendars now for two special events:
- Autumn Tea and Vintage Accessory Fund Raiser on Saturday, November 18 at 5pm. Volunteers and auction items needed. Please speak to Pat McLaughlin or Kelli Emerson after church.
- 2nd Annual Holy Trinity & Pied Piper Holiday Party and Carol Sing, Wednesday, December 6 at 7pm. More details to come.
Fall book group forming
The Vicar will lead a group reading Michel Houellebecq’s satirical novel, Submission. Houellebecq’s novel wrestles with reactionary political nostalgia, cultural apocalypse, religious conversion (real and coerced), and the perceived need for a “canopy of faith” to hold the world together. Does Houellebecq’s France of 2022 speak to America of late 2017? Come and find out. Four weeks, Wednesdays at 7pm, beginning October 4, in the Vicarage. Please email the Vicar if you are interested.
Update on real estate development
The Vicar and Vestry are working with the bishop’s office and the Standing Committee to finalize the transfer of title back to the Diocese of New York. The Vestry passed a resolution in August to authorize signatories to the deed and related documents.
