In our fourth gathering on August 30, we’ll reflect on what we’ve learned and try to come up with some concrete, specific recommendations to present to the vestry for consideration. Following this session, the ideas will be further honed and evaluated before going to the vestry.

During August, we will be offering four sessions in Tisdale Hall, from 9:15-10:10 that look at issues of race and privilege. What keeps us trapped in prejudice? What keeps us from seeking and serving Christ in all persons? What keeps people from making Holy Trinity their spiritual home, and what can we do to change that?

Join parishioners Roger Carter and Alex Hall, and the clergy of Holy Trinity, to wade into these important but sometimes anxious waters of race and privilege.

Week One – August 9 – Personal Experience

Week Two – August 16 – Experiences at Holy Trinity

Week 3 – August 23 – Learning exercises around white privilege
Week 4 – August 30 – Brainstorming for Concrete Recommendations to the Vestry

Rebuild the Churches Fund
Additionally, we will be inviting anyone in the parish to contribute to a special offering to the Re-build the Churches fund, established to assist six black churches that recently were destroyed by fire. Those wishing to give can make out a check to Holy Trinity Parish with “Rebuild the Churches Fund” in the memo line.
