As you may have seen on our homepage, we’re getting together on September 14 to celebrate the publication of Deborah Joy Corey’s new book, Breaking Bread: Essays from New England on Food, Hunger and Family.  This book was the inspiration behind Blue Angel.  Charles Hart found this article in the Episcopal News Service that reminded him of our little garden and Deborah Corey.  Here is a picture of our little garden.

This just in from Russell Corbett:  “Trinity partners with Blue Angel – http://www.blueangelme.org – which is a food pantry(ish) organization in Castine. We use the church’s undercroft to store non perishable food items and we use the back of the property to have several vegetable beds which are tended by volunteers and put together food boxes to deliver weekly.”  He sent a link to this 2019 article in the Castine Patriot.  If you haven’t seen it, or haven’t read it for a while, check it out.

As of our Annual Meeting on Sunday, we have a new Vestry.  Kenneth Hillas is our new Senior Warden, and Paul and Dixie Gray will share the duties of Junior Warden.  Thanks to Dabney McKenzie for a snapshot she took at the meeting.

The Summer Party was a huge success – some were there from the local community who are not parishioners but wanted to check us out while helping us celebrate the summer.  Dabney McKenzie writes:  “Though it was a rainy day, nothing was able to dampen the spirits of the crowd we had at Trinity Church on August 17!  Though wet outside, inside the mood was festive and fun! Special thanks to the party planners for being the ‘hostesses with the mostest!'”

We’re hoping to reach more people more often by increasing our online presence.  We’re now on Instagram in addition to Facebook.  Please like our Facebook page and follow us on Instagram.  This will help us spread the word throughout our community and bring us useful tools (the more followers we get, the more tools are available to us).  If you have something you’d like to see posted on either platform, please email lrlawrie@gmail.com.  Both platforms are excellent places to show off your photos of Trinity events!

We just got this lovely letter from Christina Witham, Director of Daycare and H.O.M.E. Management. Please click the link, read the letter, and give yourself a pat on the back. It’s so nice to know our efforts have met a need in our community!
