Matthew 25 Collections Due This Sunday

This Sunday is the last day of collection for our Matthew 25 Lenten outreaches: Donations are being solicited for a Clothing Drive, with donations to go to the St. Vincent de Paul Society of State College, a Food Drive, with donations to go to the Food Bank of the State College Area, and a Gift Card Drive (e.g., Wal-Mart, Target) so temporarily homeless residents at Housing Transitions can purchase necessities. Thank you for your generosity.

Yesterday’s Mission Vespers a Huge Success

Thank you to everyone who provided service and hospitality at yesterday’s Mission Vespers. Several generous volunteers baked desserts, prepared the meal, bought drinks, set up our Parish Hall, served our guests, and stayed to clean-up afterwards. Because we have several leftovers, Wednesday’s post-Presanctifed Liturgy dinner will not be “potluck” but instead will feature the leftover soup, coleslaw, drinks, and bread. If you wish to bring an item, please bring a small complementary side dish or dessert.

Parish to Hold Annual Work Day Saturday

Many hands make light work! We will have an opportunity to prove this quotation true this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. when Holy Trinity holds its annual All-Parish Work Day to prepare and beautify our temple for Pascha. There will be a variety of tasks — both indoor and outdoor — for volunteers of all skill levels. A light lenten breakfast will be prepared courtesy of the Men’s Fellowship. See you Saturday!
