“The Caring Tree” – Christmas 2012
Bless the parishioners of Trinity Episcopal Church for selecting an angel from “The Caring Tree.” Your generosity enabled the Adopt a Social Worker program to broaden the concept of not only giving to children this year but to their mothers as well.
Each angel represented a child or mother who resides in Bridgeport. The outpouring of your hearts and generosity provided for over 40 families this year. Just know that you made a difference in the life of a family in need by helping each of them to have a merry Christmas.
We have a vibrant life here at Trinity Parish, with a rich number of enrichment offerings for parishioners of all ages, from our toddlers to our seniors. From Bible Study groups and Adult Forums through Confirmation class to a very active Church School, we offer opportunities for personal growth, understanding, knowledge and spirituality at all levels. Some, like the Fall and Lenten Adult Forums, are open to the public without charge, and some are closely connected to our Youth programs. Others welcome people of a wide age range. All of them lead to a greater knowledge of the Bible, the world around us, and each other, individually and as a parish.
We also have groups that meet to share secular and social interests, such as the Well-Seasoned Luncheon every February for our Senior Citizens and their friends, and the Book Group, which reads and discusses classic books. For the past three years the field of study has been American Literature, and beginning in the Fall of 2012, the group will explore international authors of the 2O and 21 c.
