Stations of the

Cross

Saturdays, March 25; April 8 at Trinity Church Saturday, April 1 at Christ Church During the Saturdays of Lent, we will be offering Stations of the Cross at 12:15, alternating between Christ Church and Trinity Church. All are invited to join us at either church regardless of which is serving as host for a given Saturday. Our Lenten worship Sunday services throughout the season of Lent strike a simpler, more penitential tone than those normally offered through the rest of the year. By changing the liturgy in different seasons of the Church Year, our worship will be deepened as we experience different windows that are opened to God by our service.   At Trinity Church's 8:45 a.m. Eucharist this Lent, the Penitential Order with Holy Eucharist, Rite One, will be offered. This service reminds us, through its penitential language and tone, of our call to prepare our hearts for the Paschal feast.

Our annual Calendar Fundraiser is underway – and thanks to the generosity of parishioners, we have approximately $1,500 in prizes to give away! Calendars may be purchased from Christ or Trinity Church parishioners at $10 each. You can win up to 30 times for the month of April, as all names drawn go back in the basket.   While this year the proceeds will go only to Christ Church due to their greater need for the funds, the fundraiser is being sponsored by both churches.

“Five Marks of Love” underway Lent is a time for the Church and her members to recall our baptism and reflect on its continuing effect in our lives. Are our lives marked by God’s lavish love? Is being a Christian evident in how we live our lives? Do people around us even notice? Thanks to a partnership between the Society of St. John the Evangelist and the Center for the Ministry of Teaching at Virginia Theological Seminary, we will have an opportunity this Lent to join with churches throughout the Episcopal Church of New Hampshire in offering “Five Marks of Love” as a devotional and study resource. This six-week series offers an opportunity to observe and reflect on ways in which Christ’s love expresses itself in and through us; in our lives, in our faith communities and in the world around us. Each week, will explore the “Five Marks of Love” suggested by the “Five Marks of Mission” of the Episcopal Church. The Christ Church sessions will include a simple soup and bread lunch; the Trinity Church sessions will include soup and bread supper. Sign-up sheets are out at each church inviting people to provide a pot of soup or a loaf of bread. Here is the schedule for the remainder of the series: TRANSFORM Unjust Structures Sunday, March 26 at           noon, Christ Church; Wednesday, March 29              at 6 p.m., Trinity TREASURE: Strive to Safeguard the Integrity of Creation Sunday, April 2 at noon,           Christ Church; Wednesday, April 5 at 6           p.m., Trinity Shop with Scrip program underway At our Annual Meeting, we rolled out a new fund-raising program, Shop with Scrip. Your purchase of gift cards, which vary from $25 to $100 in face value, allows you to use the full face value of the card – but your church gets a rebate of up to 16% of the card’s value. Cards can be used at over 300 of the nation’s largest brands, including grocery and department stores, gas stations, restaurants, hotels, home improvement centers, and more. Some have already set up an account online that allows you to do this automatically (it works somewhat like “Paypal” account), with reloadable gift cards you can “top up” at any time.
