Thank you to today’s Greeters, Margaret Nartey and Veronica Ngwayah – We are in need of 1-2 Greeters on Sunday mornings, and will be posting a sign-up sheet outside of Synod Hall. If you have any questions, please speak with Margaret.

We are pleased to announce that Rev. Canon Arthur Powell will be our new coordinator of decorations and floral arrangements at the Cathedral. When you see Art, say “Hi” offer assistance if you can. Many thanks once more to Susan Remmers for her invaluable efforts over many years!

Time is Hopping along – let’s plan for the EASTER EGG HUNT! We are hoping (?hopping?) to once again hold the Trinity Cathedral Easter Egg Hunt this year, March 31st! Can you help? We are looking for: Easter egg fillers (treats, small prizes, etc. – we have PLENTY of eggs!), small baskets with handles (for the little ones who may have forgotten one on the day). Please drop off all donations at the Cathedral! Any questions? Please call Rose Cooper or E-mail her at

“A Taste of Joy – Recipes of Trinity Cathedral” cookbook is still available! – Proceeds from the sale of the books are going to provide fresh produce to our Food Pantry. Get yours today at the Cathedral Altar Guild Shop for just $10 or contact Lucy Adams at  Also, if you are interested in selling the books, let Lucy know. Thank you for your support!

Join us for our Lenten Series – Weekly reflections on “How We Learn to Be Brave” by Bishop Mariann Budde will be led by Canon Dr. Phil Lewis. Wednesdays, February 21st and 28th, and March 6th, 13th and 20th. Sessions will be held via Zoom from 7:00 – 8:30 pm. The Zoom link for the meeting is:

The book is available for purchase at the Altar Guild Shop. Having read the book is important, but NOT REQUIRED to attend and enjoy the Lenten Series – weekly reflections. We encourage everyone to invite at least three people you know, who you think are looking for a better life!

If you are interested in helping the Food Pantry, we can especially use one or two volunteers who can lift up to 50 pounds – We have folks who can pack our food bags, but they require assistance lifting cases of canned goods onto the packing tables and moving the packed bags into place to be handed out. Can you fill this need? Please call Lourdez “Cookie” Hernandez at (609) 902-8282.

The next Food Pantry distribution date is – Saturday, March 9th (2nd & 4th Saturdays this month) from 9-11:00 am.

Each Thursday, we distribute hot dinners “to go” from 4:15–5:30pm at the Overbrook Avenue entrance as a satellite location for the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen.
