A message from Sara, Rector, to the Holy T. Parishioners: Jesus tells us in Matthew 25:39, 40 that when we visit the sick or those in prison we are visiting Him.  Chaplain Sylvia Moseley at the Dayton Correctional Institution told me that many indigent women at the prison have no family to put money into their accounts to purchase basic toiletries that we all take for granted.  They are dependent on organizations to donate these items, which the Chaplain then distributes. Would you please donate these needed toiletries, which can be purchased from Dollar Tree:  shampoo and conditioner, deodorant, toothpaste, lotion, soap or body wash, feminine napkins and tampons?  We will be collecting these items from June 10th through July 8th in boxes in the Narthex. Also, I invite any parishioners interested in having a tour of the Dayton Correctional Institution when we deliver the toiletries to contact me:  We will visit the prison later in July on a Monday afternoon.

New Scrip gift card program ~ Our Vestry has approved an exciting new way for our parishioners to help keep our house of worship in excellent working order, allowing other funds to remain available for important programs such as Outreach and Music.  The program is “Scrip” and it is just another way for parishioners to pay for everyday purchases using gift cards in place of cash, checks, and credit cards. You purchase gift cards at face value, and our coordinator (Marilyn Kinzler) orders those cards from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a reduced price. The difference is an instant rebate for Holy Trinity. It’s really that simple! When you use scrip gift cards at your favorite retailers, you’re fundraising while you shop. Great Lakes Scrip Center offers more than 700 of the country’s biggest retailers, including grocery, department stores, gas stations, restaurants, hotels, home improvement, and more. Just by using Scrip to pay for your normal weekly purchases, you can easily raise $500 or more per year. It’s time to put our shopping dollars to work for Holy T! Look for our “Scrip” table at Coffee Connections to sign up.



July 18, and July 25 (Wednesdays): Noon-hour Chamber Music Concert, Holy Trinity, 12:15PM   These are the next two of a series of four concerts organized by pianist Bruce Murray, former chair of the Department of Music at Miami University. Thanks to Carlton Monroe, Director of Music, St. Thomas Terrace Park, Cincinnati. The series will continue on July 18, and July 25.

July 22 (Sunday) Holy Trinity at the Cincinnati Reds 1:10 P.M.   Invite your friends and relatives to join us on our parish outing to see the Reds beat the Pittsburgh Pirates!  Tickets $16 in section 417.  Please let Gayle Shidler in the Holy T. office know as soon as possible how many tickets you want; checks should be made out to Holy Trinity Episcopal Church with “Reds Tickets” in the subject line. You can place checks in the offering plate on Sunday or mail them to the Church Office.

Updating Office Records ~ Would you like your birthday noted in the TRIAD? Or, the birthdays of family members? Your anniversary, if applicable? Would you like to give altar flowers to celebrate a personal or family event, or to memorialize a family member? Or have your name added to the rotation for providing refreshments at coffee hour? If so, please call or email the office with your information, so we can add you to our lists! Thanks! Gayle Shidler ~ 513-523-7559 ~
