Work on the Plaza Begins Monday, March 12
The Parish Office will be closed for approximately two weeks.
Work on the plaza begins this week. See the photo of Father Greg if you’re not sure where the Plaza is—it’s the entire area covered by pavers in front of the parish office, and it’s actually the roof to parts of the 2nd floor. Workers will be removing the pavers, replacing the roof membrane, and reinstalling the pavers. We believe this will eliminate the leaks on the 2nd floor.
The parish office will be closed to the public for a minimum of two weeks, and there will be no access to the main office door once the project begins. Staff will be working at home or in the office and will check voice mail and e-mail regularly. Front desk volunteers will not be present to answer phones or open doors. There may be very limited parking during the construction period because the pavers from the Plaza will be stored there. We will know better on Monday how much the parking lot will be affected. We’re sure to identify more “wrinkles” as we experience the work.
Plans for access during services and events:
Tuesday Night Finance & Personnel Committee (3/13) and Vestry (3/20)
Use your exterior key to enter through the kitchen (sorry, all keys don’t work that door) or the first floor E. Ponce door. The Portrait Room double doors (where the doughnuts are served at 9:15) are accessible to those with mobility issues.
Wednesday Healing Service at 10:00 a.m.
Please enter by the Portrait Room door. The door will be attended from 9:45 until 10:00 a.m. It cannot be left unlocked because of security issues for the Preschool.

Please enter through Tisdale Hall or the Portrait Room doors. These doors will be unlocked from 5:30 until 8:00 p.m.
Sunday Services on March 18
Please enter through Tisdale Hall or the Portrait Room doors. The Portrait Room double doors (where the doughnuts are served at 9:15) are accessible to those with mobility issues.
Watch for updates about Palm Sunday and Holy Week.
If all goes well, the project will be finished before March 25.
News, announcements, and events at Holy Trinity Parish Episcopal Church, Decatur, Diocese of Atlanta, Georgia.
Located in the City of Decatur, Georgia, Holy Trinity Parish is part of the Episcopal Church and is guided by our mission statement to open hearts to God and open doors to community. ✟
Holy Trinity Parish is part of 109 worshiping communities across middle and north Georgia, and part of a worldwide expression of Christianity known as the Anglican Communion. One of our hallmarks is that we find our unity in our common prayer and worship, not in our common thought or belief. When we gather to pray, we join in ancient practices designed to shape our lives to be more like Christ’s. We hear God’s word, pray for the world, confess our sins, receive forgiveness, be at peace with one another, and celebrate our unity with God and one another in Holy Communion.
