Holy Trinity Episcopal Church
A God-centered, active, fun-loving congregation
Fr. Neil will continue to stream the Mid-week Update live on the church Facebook page on each Wednesday at 1 PM. The Mid-week Update is different than the Sunday services which are pre-recorded and scheduled to post on Sunday mornings. If you missed watching any of them live, they are posted on Facebook for you to watch. Here is a link to the latest: Mid-week Update Link
The church will remain closed for meetings and church services through the month of June. During this time the Vestry is studying the procedures and guidelines that Bishop Benfield has given for the reopening of churches to determine when and how Holy Trinity can move forward. Both Fr. Neil and the Vestry agree that the “ intention is to establish as safe an environment as possible for our members, visitors and all who live in Hot Springs Village.’ We know everyone is anxious and excited about being with the Holy Trinity family again, but continued patience is needed.”

A Message From Fr. Neil
Adjusting to Covid-19 at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church
Perhaps the biggest impact I have felt from Covid-19 is how profoundly connected we are to one another. And that impact is felt primarily in the absence of things we are used to sharing – like shaking hands or exchanging a hug during the Peace, not being able to receive the Holy Eucharist, or the laying on of
hands and healing prayers on the second Sunday of the month, or gathering at the coffee hour after the 10:30 a.m. service, and not being able to go to Good Samaritan to celebrate the Holy Eucharist on the second Wednesday of the month.
And yet, despite the restrictions we are living with at present, we find ourselves adapting. Routines and calendars change, but we do not quit. We move forward even if it means having to rethink how we move forward.
The video will be available to play at 10:30 AM Sunday, May 31st. To start the video click on the play arrow. To expand to full screen click on the box in the right lower corner. Adjust volume as needed. Choose the button below to see the bulletin and follow the service.
Just so you know, Holy Trinity is not closed for business. Office Manager Diane Olson has the church office open daily. Together with Music Director Ellen Nagode we are engaged in planning our worship services. I am also available by calling the church office or my cell phone.
Moving through these days is going to test our creativity. While we look forward to the time we will once again gather socially, break bread and share in the Holy Eucharist, I ask that we keep in touch. Check up on one another. Call a friend to see how they are doing. If you come up with a suggestion, give us a call.
Please see the Weekly Announcements for information on how to give toward your pledge or to make a donation. Your financial support is deeply appreciated and keeps our mission on track. As we move forward, we will keep you all in our prayers daily and keep you informed.
