VISIT TO BETTY DAKING AND ROBBY ROBERTS
Both Betty and Robby are in temporary accommodation at Ainslie Aged Care
Facility, Low Head. I am planning to visit them on Monday, 30th March,
leaving Holy Trinity at 1.00 pm. If you are interested to join me on the visit,
then please let me know. Warwick
URSULA BARNETT
Ursula is still in the Launceston General Hospital and is awaiting a bed in the
Rehabilitation Ward 3R. Many thanks to parishioners for their prayers, good
wishes, cards, flowers and visits.
GARDEN STALL
We took close to $370 at the last stall and with only one more stall to go I
am confident that we will reach $2,000 for the season. Everything continues
to sell well especially lemons where we have customers queueing up. We
sold over 250 of them last week. Jams and chutneys along with baked goods
are also popular. Please contact me if you have any excess fruit or
vegetables, I am happy to collect the produce. Dennis, 6334 2794 or see me
after the 10.30 am Sunday Eucharist.
WORSHIP IN THE SPIRIT OF TAIZE
Tonight at 5.30 pm Donald McGinty will be leading the
service. This special time of worship includes candlelit
prayers, readings, silence and soft music with repetitive
words. A very meditative service which offers a wonderful
opportunity to be silent and centre on our Lord. Afterwards
there is a “bring and share” meal.
HOLY TRINITY CAR PARK
Car space number 72, which has been used by parishioners on church
business, has now been handed back to Harcourt’s Real Estate for lease.
Parishioners will not be able to use this parking space any more.
LENT STUDY
This year’s Lent Study group meets at 5.30 pm Wednesday evenings at Sara
Strong’s home, 2 Balfour Street, Launceston. All welcome
FROM THE PROPERTY COMMITTEE
We have been carrying out investigations into the North Spire of the Narthex
as it is spreading on its base. It poses a potential public risk and we have
received advice to dismantle it prior to rebuilding. We expect that the
scaffolding will be erected shortly with the dismantling process to commence
this week or next week. This work was agreed to at the February 2015 Parish
Council Meeting. If you would like to know any further details, please ask
Grahame or the Wardens.
ANGLICAN BOARD OF MISSION LENT APPEAL 2015
This year we have the opportunity to support three projects during Lent.
 The Rev’d Gloria Shipp (the Chair of NATSIAC) and her Walkabout
Ministries in the Diocese of Bathurst.
 Machakos and Makueni Diocese Leadership and Training Project in
Kenya.
 Integrated Livelihood Improvement – Eastern Kenya.
There is an envelope for each project with details on it.
PASTORAL PARTNERS
Pastoral Partners meet on Monday, 23rd March at 2.00 pm at Holy Trinity.
Please let Warwick know if you will be attending the meeting or if you are
unable to attend. Pastoral Partners is something for every member of our
congregation. If you are not already a Pastoral Partner, then I urge you to
consider being one. For more details please contact Warwick.

ADVANCE NOTICE - MAUNDY THURSDAY – 2ND APRIL 2015
Our service for Maundy Thursday will basically follow the
order and text of the Last Supper from St. John’s Gospel. It
will include foot washing. There will be a light meal with
some Passover prayers and symbols, concluding with the
special additions that Jesus made to the celebration.
After the blessing we will proceed with the stripping of the
altar and the reading of Psalm 22.
There is a clipboard in the narthex for you to write your
name if you wish to attend the meal. If you would like to
participate in the foot washing, please give your name to Fr Warwick.
FREEDOM BELLS
Holy Trinity’s bell has been rung on Mondays at 3.30 pm joining with other
churches to encourage our government to release children from our detention
centres. David Towns and Grahame Foster have been ringing the bell at Holy
Trinity. We need some of our parishioners to assist. If we are unable to
continue to ring our bell, then we will advise the organizer to have our Church
taken off the Freedom Bells website. See Grahame if you can help out.
PARISH CARE FREEZER
Holy Trinity has recently acquired a freezer in which to store sandwiches, meals,
casseroles, pasta dishes, etc to distribute to those who may be in urgent need
for food assistance and for parishioners who may be unwell.
Hilary Cahill (a pastoral partner) has offered to co-ordinate the contents of the
freezer. Hilary will be delighted if parishioners are able to donate meals in takeaway containers, with a list of ingredients and date attached. Sandwiches – four
slices of bread (uncut), (please list ingredients and date) wrapped in cling wrap
then placed in a take-away container.
This will be a wonderful service to our church and general community.
THE WAR MEMORIAL
6. George William Bischoff Clare
George was the youngest of the seven children of William and Sarah Clare of
Newnham. He was baptized at Holy Trinity, attended the Grammar School and
became a bank clerk prior to enlisting in October 1914. He saw service
throughout the Gallipoli campaign and then went to Northern France. In October
1916 he was wounded in action and invalided to England. Returning to the
Front he was awarded the Military Medal in June 1917 and then selected for
officer training. Promoted to Lieutenant he was congratulated in an Australian
Corps report for saving the regimental ammunition when it was set on fire
through enemy shelling (July 1918). George returned to Tasmania at the end of
the war and in 1929 took over command of the Launceston Artillery. He moved
to Queensland in 1936 as a Branch Manager of the Union Bank of Australia and
died there in 1944 aged fifty.

ABM THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
John asserts that the very sight of the suffering Jesus on the cross
has power to bring people to repentance and faith, overwhelmed by
the new life won for them. May we look at the cross of Christ and
respond with repentance and faith.
 Pray that people will come to faith in Christ crucified.
 Pray for the Episcopal Church in the Philippines, giving thanks
for the work they do to further God’s mission in the world.
