Christina Nord, and some of you may remember that Pastor Christina was a supply priest for us for a period of time in 2009.  Over the next few weeks, we will be finalizing with the Diocese the details of Pastor Christina’s transition to Holy Trinity.  We expect her first Sunday service to be held on Sunday, August 27th.

This also means that we will be saying good-bye and thank you to The Rev. Patricia Cashman, who has been acting as our supply priest since January 2016.  We will be holding an expanded coffee hour on Rev. Patricia’s last Sunday, August 20th, to include a going away party for Rev. Patricia.  (Please note this was originally announced as August 13th, but has been changed to August 20th).  Please plan to attend this party and thank Rev. Patricia for her service to Holy Trinity.

The Vestry is excited to begin this new phase of leadership at Holy Trinity by Pastor Christina; and look forward to working with her.  A formal welcome will be held for Pastor Christina during our Rally Day celebration on Sunday, September 10th.

Ice Cream Fundraiser:  Holy Trinity is working with Sundae World on a second ice cream fundraiser.  This will work the same way as our July ice cream fundraiser. If you go to Sundae World and purchase ice cream onSunday, August 6th, and tell the counter folks that it goes to Holy Trinity, we will receive 50% of all purchases.  The only requirement is that you tell them your purchase is part of the Holy Trinity fundraiser.  Sundae World is located at 1801 N. Broad Street in Lansdale.  Please tell your friends and relatives about this fundraiser—the more people who purchase ice cream and give the Holy Trinity name August 6th, the more money Holy Trinity will make!
