There are still many empty Sundays for Fellowship Hour! Please sign up! Get together with friends and family! Fellowship Hour is an important part of our liturgical experience, like the Agape Meal of the early Christians.
Sunday School to Start
Our Sunday School classes will start again today. The procedure will be the same--the children should be with their families through the Liturgy. After Communion they should gather in the right front pews for the Children's Sermon. Afterwards they will accompany their teachers to their classrooms. We will kick off Sunday School with the children participating in the Procession of the Holy Cross on September 19. Please let Father know if you are intending on bringing your children for this opportunity!
Tickets are now on sale for Taverna Night, which this year will celebrate the 90th anniversary of our beloved Parish Family. This wonderful event will take place on Saturday, October 2 from 6-10:30 pm. Dinner will feature lots of delicious mezedakia, followed by a dessert buffet. Dancing will be to the tunes of Dilina, Jim Speros and Chuck Koutsos. Tickets are $35 a piece. If you have made a reservation, please make sure to pay now. You can also reserve a table for 6.
Today we will be taking down and storing the tables and prepare the hall for Taverna Night. We especially need lots of men to help with this. Please plan next week to stay a little while to help out! Thanks! We also need a lot of help for the event, for cooking, for set up, and for other tasks. If you are interested in helping and making the event a success, please see Presbytera!
Do You Need to Occupy Children?
If you are looking something to keep your children occupied during the Liturgy, please check out our Children's Basket at the Pangari. You will find Bible stories, washable crayons and colored pencils, and coloring pages. Please help yourself and return the items at the end of Liturgy.
Metropolis Clergy--Laity Meeting
Every other year, on the off years of the Archdiocesan Clergy--Laity, the clergy and laity of our Metropolis meets together to attend some excellent Workshops for the improvement and enthusiasm of our parish families, as well as to discuss important issues of the Metropolis. This year the meeting will take place on Saturday, October16 at St. Demetrios in Weston. If you would like to be part of this important event, whether as a voting or non-voting delegate, please see Father or Tasso.
On-Line Book Club
Our Book Club has just finished the excellent and thought provoking book by St. Porphyrios, Wounded by Love. We will be going on to our next book: Women of the Catacombs: Memoirs of the Underground Orthodox Church in Stalin's Russia, which just came out this past March. If you wish to order the book, you can find it on Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1501754408?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2_dt_b_product_details. Our next meeting is Thursday, October 7 at 7:30 pm, and we will be meeting every other week. Please see Father if you would like the link information to join the discussion.

Can You Do Snow Plowing?
Because of the difficulty in finding workers, our regular snow plow person is no longer able to clean the sidewalks around the church. If you have a snow plow and/or would like to snow blow the sidewalk, please speak to Tasso to make arrangements. Thanks!
Please Remember the Poor
There are Blessing Bags available to take and keep in your car for the times that you see someone begging at an intersection.
We also need items for the Blessing Bags (there are more bags waiting to be taken and given away!): deodorant, toothpaste, shampoo/conditioner, lip balm; hand sanitizer, and granola bars.
May God bless your generosity!
Because of the strange circumstances we find ourselves living through, our Parish, although blessed by God in many ways, suffers from a particular shortage of income during the summer months. Your consistent offering of your Stewardship each month will be an enormous help to get us through this summer slump. The easiest and most consistent way to do this is by having your Stewardship given automatically each month. Please go to our website (www.holytrinitynh.org); in the upper right hand corner (of each page!) you will find the link to make your monthly contribution. You can also use this link for other contributions to the parish, such as candles and trays, especially if you prefer not to handle cash. Thank you for your generosity and making sure we are able to serve you throughout the whole year to the glory of God!
