Growing in Love of God and Neighbor

Lent 2022


Living the Covenant: This Lent, join Mother Emily and Mother Angie for an exploration of the promises we make in baptism, and how those promises help us grow in faith as we live up to them in our daily lives, with God’s help. The class will be offered from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. on Wednesdays in Lent (March 9, 16, 23, and 30, and April 6).
UPDATE March 18: This class will be offered online only, from March 23 through April 6.

For daily reflections on the baptismal covenant, read the daily Earth and Altar Lenten Devotional, or subscribe (at the bottom of the linked page) to receive the devotional by email each day.

Lenten Organ Recital series:

Our Lenten organ recitals are back! After getting cut short in 2020, and not happening at all in 2021, our popular Lenten series of organ recitals will resume on Wednesday, March 9 at 12:00 noon. These thirty-minute recitals feature area organists playing a wide variety of organ literature on our beautifully renovated pipe organ. The first recital features virtuoso organist Aaron Patterson who is a student at the Curtis Institute.

Unfortunately, there will not be any soup luncheons following this year’s recitals. We have always wondered whether people come to the organ recitals for the music or the soup (or both!), and this year we have a chance to find out! There is nothing like hearing the pipe organ live in concert, with its beautiful quietest sounds and its thrilling loudest sounds. We hope to see you there!

March 9 – Aaron Patterson – Curtis Institute of Music, Philadelphia
March 16 – Diane Caruso – Grace Episcopal Church, Haddonfield, NJ
March 23 – Erik Meyer – Abington Presbyterian Church, Abington, PA
March 30 – Wesley Parrott – Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral
April 6 – Justin Hartz – Longwood Gardens Holiday Organist

Green Eating Challenge:

The Earth Care Ministry invites you to join Trinity’s Lent 2022 Green Eating Challenge!  Sign up to participate by making small changes in your food choices for two meals per week during Lent – including less meat or no meat – to reduce your draw on earth’s limited resources and reduce emissions from food production.

More about the Earth Care Ministry:

Trinity Church has initiated an Earth Care Ministry that seeks to deepen our spiritual and physical relationship with all of creation and participate in the proper stewardship of the earth’s resources.  One consideration in this stewardship is understanding the environmental impact of human consumption of meat and dairy products and looking for ways to mitigate this impact.

You can find more information about the Earth Care Ministry on our web page.

Join us each Sunday in Lent as we travel back to the time of Jesus. We will craft items used during Jesus’ time while listening to music of the region. We will explore a new lesson each week. See you there! Parish Hall from 9:00-9:45am
