Father Greg enjoys his Pancake Breakfast before Leading the Annual Meeting.

Our new Rector, Father Gregory Bezilla, lead the meeting.  In his report, he talked about his goals for the coming year and his intention to encourage and grow leadership for the ministries at Holy Trinity.

He also expressed his intention to focus on the spiritual health of the parish and especially the children, while maintaining the highest standards for worship while we explore the Anglican and Episcopalian traditions of liturgy and music.

Our ongoing efforts to reach out to the community, especially the poor of our region is another area of focus for his ministry.

2015 Lenten Series Now Available

This coming Lent, the Diocese of New Jersey will offer a new Lenten series for use in your congregations. The 2015 Lenten Series is called called “What’s God Up To – And How Can I Join In?

Over five weeks, the series will heighten your awareness of God’s activity in your lives, churches, neighborhoods and in the larger world.

Information and materials are now available at:

www.dioceseofnj.org/lent

 

 

Sessions are structured to be 1-1/2 to 2 hours long, including a half hour for a simple supper, encouraging conversation on the week’s theme. (We also suggest ways to shorten the program for those of you who need to limit your time to one hour – say, for Sunday mornings.) To help in preaching preparation, the Bible passages that guide discussion are selected from the following Sunday’s lectionary. All materials (including weekly leader guides and handouts) are designed to be adapted to each congregation’s style and focus.

 

I hope you’ll find this series useful. And as always, I welcome your suggestions for future offerings, and any other ideas, wishes and dreams you might have about support for growing your congregations in numbers, service and – especially – your relationship with Jesus.

 

Faithfully,

 

The Rev. Cn. Dr. Rob Droste

Canon for Congregational Development and Mission
