Some of the most visible ministries are those which serve in the context of the liturgy. To help with the fulfilling of some of those ministries in our midst, we will have training sessions for Eucharisitic Ministers and Worship Leaders. These sessions will be a refresher for those who are already serving, and will afford an opportunity for those who would like to join anew.

Eucharistic Ministers are those who serve at the alter during the Eucharist. Primarily, their ministry is administering the chalice at the time of Communion, but they are also regularly called upon to fulfill some of the duties of acolytes.
Worship Leaders are those who serve by officiating at the Daily Office. When the faithful gather for Morning and Evening Prayer, the Officiant leads them in the liturgy, and when provided reads a prepared homily.
In light of the above training sessions, there will be no Sunday School classes for the next few weeks. Please also note that if you are currently serving in one of these ministries, you need to attend the training for licensing by the Diocese.

***Removing Greens***  After church Sunday, we'll remove the greens from the church. Many hands help to make this a smooth and painless process, so if you've got a few minutes to spare after church, please lend a hand taking them down and cleaning up.

***12th Night & Feast of the Epiphany***  There is a traditional celebration on the last night of Christmastide known as 12th Night, which happens to fall tomorrow evening, January 5. We will tie in the festivities with our celebration of the Feast of the Epiphany with Mass at 5:30 pm, after which we'll head out to for an impromptu Trinity on the Move (maybe El Rancherito).

Guild Meeting:  The January meeting of the Guild will be this Thursday, January 9, at noon. We will be going out to lunch, so make plans to join us if you can.
Mission Leadership Team:  The Mission Leadership Team will meet after church on Sunday, January 16.

Farewell Parish Dinner & Annual Meeting:  In two weeks, January 19, we will have our Annual Parish meeting. Please make plans to be with us for this important meeting as we elect new members to the Mission Leadership Team and take a look at the year past and consider the year ahead.

Before the meeting, we will have a parish dinner, and we will also take this opportunity to say our goodbyes as Fr. Ben's time comes to a close on his last Sunday at Trinity.

Countryside Manor:  We will be at Countryside Manor on Wednesday this week and next, January 8 and 15, for Mass at 10 am.

Parish Prayer List:  Please take a look so we can pray intentionally for each name on the list. Can someone be moved off our prayer list? Do you know someone we should add?

Altar Flowers and Coffee Hour:  Take a moment to check them out here: 2020 Altar Flowers and 2020 Coffee Hour. These are important ministries to our ongoing life together.

Hear, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest

January 5, 2019 - Second Sunday after Christmas

The Collect:  All Saints

O God, who didst wonderfully create, and yet more wonderfully restore, the dignity of human nature: Grant that we may share the divine life of him who humbled himself to share our humanity, thy Son Jesus Christ; who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

The Lesson:  Jeremiah 31:7-14

For thus says the Lord: “Sing aloud with gladness for Jacob, and raise shouts for the chief of the nations; proclaim, give praise, and say, ‘The Lord has saved his people, the remnant of Israel.’ Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the farthest parts of the earth, among them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her who is in travail, together; a great company, they shall return here. With weeping they shall come, and with consolations I will lead them back, I will make them walk by brooks of water,  in a straight path in which they shall not stumble; for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my first-born. “Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, and declare it in the coastlands afar off; say, ‘He who scattered Israel will gather him, and will keep him as a shepherd keeps his flock.’ For the Lord has ransomed Jacob, and has redeemed him from hands too strong for him. They shall come and sing aloud on the height of Zion, and they shall be radiant over the goodness of the Lord, over the grain, the wine, and the oil, and over the young of the flock and the herd; their life shall be like a watered garden, and they shall languish no more. Then shall the maidens rejoice in the dance, and the young men and the old shall be merry. I will turn their mourning into joy, I will comfort them, and give them gladness for sorrow. I will feast the soul of the priests with abundance, and my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, says the Lord.”

The Psalm:  84:1-8

1   How dear to me is your dwelling, O LORD of hosts! * My soul has a desire and longing for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh rejoice in the living God.
2   The sparrow has found her a house and the swallow a nest where she may lay her young; * by the side of your altars, O LORD of hosts, my King and my God.
3   Happy are they who dwell in your house! * they will always be praising you.
4   Happy are the people whose strength is in you! * whose hearts are set on the pilgrims' way.
5   Those who go through the desolate valley will find it a place of springs, * for the early rains have covered it with pools of water.
6   They will climb from height to height, * and the God of gods will reveal himself in Zion.
7   LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer; * hearken, O God of Jacob.
8   Behold our defender, O God; * and look upon the face of your Anointed!

The Epistle:  Ephesians 1:3-6,15-19a

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. He destined us in love to be his sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace which he freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power in us who believe.

The Gospel:  Matthew 2:13-15,19-23

Now when the wise men had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Rise, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there till I tell you; for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.” And he rose and took the child and his mother by night, and departed to Egypt, and remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfil what the Lord had spoken by the prophet, “Out of Egypt have I called my son.” But when Herod died, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, saying, “Rise, take the child and his mother, and go to the land of Israel, for those who sought the child’s life are dead.” And he rose and took the child and his mother, and went to the land of Israel. But when he heard that Archelaus reigned over Judea in place of his father Herod, he was afraid to go there, and being warned in a dream he withdrew to the district of Galilee. And he went and dwelt in a city called Nazareth, that what was spoken by the prophets might be fulfilled, “He shall be called a Nazarene.”
