Good Lord we at Holy Trinity are busy this month!  Here are some upcoming events:

First up is our SUPERBOWL PARTY!  

This Sunday February 5th from 6-9pm. Watch the Super Bowl in a family-friendly gathering in the Parish Hall, featuring good eats and a big-screen TV. Bring lawn chairs (think tailgate party) or sit at the tables and chairs already provided. Bring an appetizer or desert to share. Prizes will be offered for the tastiest appetizer and desert. There will children’s activities to occupy the very youngest. Invite a friend, coworker, neighbor, or family members. Tickets are $3 per person (age 12 and under are free) and will be available beginning on Sunday, January 22.

Be there or be square!

Next up … We have Chili Church TWICE this month!

Wednesday, February 8 and February 22nd from 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM

All are warmly invited to “Chili Church,” an informal time of prayer and discussion of the Bible over a home-cooked meal. Chili Church is modelled on Holy Trinity’s popular summer program “Burger Church,” which gathered people from many churches and cultures. On the menu for Chili Church: homemade chili, mac’n’cheese, plain rice, and corn bread. The chili will be flavorful but mild — bring your own hot sauce to share. Chili Church is a multi-generational program – it’s good for young and old. Please tell a friend or neighbor about Chili Church (which also will be offered on Feb. 22).

and finally…

Pizza Church on Wednesday, February 15 at 6:30 PM – 8 PM

Young adults and youth are warmly invited to “Pizza Church,” an informal time of prayer and discussion of the Bible over a home-cooked meal. Pizza Church is modelled on Holy Trinity’s popular summer program “Burger Church,” which gathered people from many churches and cultures. Please tell a friend or neighbor about Pizza Church

We welcome everyone to ALL of these events and we hope you’ll come on down!

IMG_3596Today was a wonderfully eventful day at Holy Trinity.

We started with youth Sunday and the celebration of the graduation of 5 of our EYC seniors.

Special recognition was given to a number of HT members by Father Greg for the special ministries they run and their tireless efforts on behalf of Holy Trinity.

In addition, he gave special thanks to members of the Hooks and Needles ministry for their dedication and special contribution of the beautiful blankets and other items they create.

We culminated with our annual Parish Picnic where the men of Holy Trinity prepared a wonderful array of burgers, hot dogs, curly fries and more!

The kids enjoyed the games, the face painting and especially the water balloons.

Even Father Greg was attacked by our youthful hooligans and their water balloons and had his face painted to feature an especially lovely uni-brow!

It was all in good fun and Father Greg was a great sport about getting soaked to the skin and having his facial features “artistically enhanced”.

A great time was had by all!

A recently published article that appeared in the Home News Tribune yesterday stated the following …

Two fundraisers are planned in February for the DeSarno family, whose Main Street home in Sayreville was destroyed in an early morning fire just a few days after Christmas.

Six family members — Paul DeSarno; his wife, Kimberly Klitzke-DeSarno; their children, Henry, 28, Arthur, 20, and Shelby, 19; and grandfather Max Klitzke — escaped the Dec. 29 blaze, but all were sent to the hospital.

A spaghetti dinner, sponsored by Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, 90 Leonardine Ave., will be conducted from 4 to 7 p.m. Feb. 8 at the church. The event is open to the community.

A UWA Elite Pro Wrestling fundraiser is scheduled for Feb. 21 also at the church, where the family has been active parishioners.

According to the Rev. Greg Bezilla, pastor of the church, Paul, his wife and son, Arthur, have since been released from the hospital.
