Stories and Announcements

Tina Lockett to Join Trinity Clergy Staff

I am excited to announce the coming of a new full-time Canon for Pastoral Care. The Rev’d Tina Lockett has served the church in several settings, including as a seminary dean, as assistant rector in large and small Episcopal churches, and as a hospital chaplain in a specialized year-long clinical education program. In July 2007, she was the speaker for the Province IV Episcopal Church Women’s Conference at Kanuga.

I don’t believe I have ever interviewed a clergy candidate about whom I got more exuberant letters of recommendation as I have for Tina. The groundswell of acclamations from her former colleagues cited her abilities as a caring, wise pastor, and her giftedness as an organizer (which will be important for our expanding lay pastoral care ministries). She will begin later this month.

ALPHA

Alpha is a program dedicated to exploring the Christian faith. Each session looks at a different question associated with the life of faith, and sessions are organized to encourage conversation.  No two Alphas are the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a presentation, and good conversation. Those involved in Alpha have an opportunity to reflect on the identity of Jesus, the nature of faith, the experience of prayer, and other topics.  The most important element of Alpha is the opportunity to share thoughts and ideas and discuss them in an open, friendly, and honest manner.

Trinity is home of the St. Helena Chapter of the Order of the Daughters of the King

The St. Helena Chapter of the Order of the Daughters of the King was re-instituted at Trinity on June 18, 2017 at the 6 pm service in Keenan Chapel. Officers were installed, and three Daughters-At-Large are now members of the Trinity chapter with the original chapter number from 1957. Barbara Kovacs, long-time Trinity parishioner, remembers that some of the members of the original chapter were:  Nancy Boyle, Pride Carson, Jeanie Martin, Sis Smith, Frances Tucker and many more. We would love to know the names of anyone else that was in the original chapter!  Nela Edgar, another long-time member of Trinity, was a Junior Member of this chapter in the late 50’s/early 60’s and she says, ”The Junior Chapter, a group of teenage girls, was a place where we began to explore our faith and to experience the power of prayer”.

Worship +1? Take a look at W.A. Perry Middle School

I recently asked Patti Trotter, who has been a volunteer in the W.A. Perry Cooking Club for a couple of years, why she gave her time to this ministry. Her face turned serious as she said, my children and grandchildren have been so blessed, and I wanted to give my time to be with children whose lives are often difficult. Then Patti broke out her usual smile and said, besides, the children really enjoy it! Sometimes they can’t express it, but then I see them excited and having fun.
