Francis of Assisi, renewer of the church, was the son of a wealthy cloth merchant. In a public confrontation with his father, he renounced his wealth and future inheritance and devoted himself to serving the poor. Francis had a spirit of gladness and gratitude for all of God’s creation. This commemoration has been a traditional time to bless pets and animals, creatures Francis called his brothers and sisters.
In June 2018, members of Trinity ventured to Cherryfield, Maine for our ninth annual mission trip to work with the Housing Rehabilitation Program of the Maine Seacoast Mission. The team works on houses or mobile homes for people that do not have the resources to improve the houses themselves.
On Sunday, June 3, friends, family, current and former co-workers, and members of the congregation joined together to celebrate the retirement of Nancy Martin. It was a lovely day filled with good food, some fun laughs and a few tears. Nancy will be missed in her role as Director of Administration, but will remain an active and dedicated member of our congregation. Thank you, Nancy, for all that you have done for Trinity all of these years.
