“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some
blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit
to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

At Trinity This Month
Landscaping Master Plan: Here is an opportunity for all to be involved in planning the landscaping surrounding Trinity church. We need your
creative and/or practical ideas for forming our
grounds into a welcoming space not just for us but
for anyone looking for a peaceful renewal of spirit. Please come join us in developing a master plan
for our land on Monday, April 6 at 6 pm in the
church library. Bring a small pizza, wine, or whatever you’d like to share with the others. To prepare for this meeting, think of the most beautiful
outdoor spaces you’ve ever seen. These might include labyrinths, sunken gardens, water features,
trellises, living archways, quiet reflective spaces
with benches – the possibilities are endless. So
please join us and bring those ideas or pictures with
you and we’ll start on our journey of developing
this land we’ve been blessed with.
Young at Heart: Join us on Wednesday, April 8th
12:30pm at the Chili’s in the Sams/Walmart Plaza.
For more information on the Young-at-Heart
group, please call Eleanor Crist.
Preaching Series after Easter: Beginning the
first Sunday after Easter, April 12th I will be starting a preaching series on the Catechism. The Catechism is what each person studies before being
confirmed in the Episcopal Church. It is the foundations of our faith. And yet how many of us have
looked at these since we were confirmed? Do we
remember what they are? If these are the foundations of our faith, how can we build our faith journey if we no longer know the foundation on which
we are building? And for those of you who are
new to the Episcopal church, perhaps you have
wondered how we differ from other faiths? Or
don’t? We will each Sunday be focusing on a different aspect of the Catechism, right up until Bishop
Prince joins us in September for confirmation. If
any of you are interested in officially joining the
Episcopal Church, or are wanting to be confirmed,
or baptized – please give me your name so that you
can join with those making this commitment to
God in September.
Green Film Series: Monday, April 13th at 7 PM,
we will be wrapping up our film series (for now,
anyway) with the PBS Nature series film “The Secret Life of Deer”. It’s an hour-long documentary
that looks into the complex society of animals that
we are very familiar seeing, often nervously from
our cars.
Building and Grounds Spring Clean-up:
25th and Saturday, May 9th from 8:30am till
2:00pm. Many jobs both inside and outside are on
the list. Your help is needed and will be appreciated. A lunch will also be provided. All wreaths and
ornamentals must to be removed in the columbarium .
Please pick up your decoration before our Spring cleanup. Thank you!
Seasons of Life
Dear Friends,
This year as we enter into Holy
Week and Easter, (and perhaps a
Spring that may come!) I find myself impatient.
Impatient for spring to come, impatient for
signs of life, impatient for a change in the
weather and the lifting of my inner state, impatient for life. I am tired of the darkness, I am
tired. And yet so too is our world. Paul writes
about creation groaning and yearning, waiting
also for redemption. Some things we have no
control over, they are seasons of life that we try
to live through with as much grace and
strength as we can muster and God provides.
But there are some things we can do to help
birth the new life that will come. We can avoid
things that further strip us of life and the earth
around us of life, we can do things that
strengthen the frail life there is, and we can
choose to be gentle and compassionate with
ourselves, others and our creation. In this Trinity Times we have included a number of non
toxic cleaning options for our families – why
not try out some of these, and if you can make
them better – let us know! Why not explore a
more intentional healthy way of cooking, or
try some new recipes that are compassionate
for all creatures. Intentionally discern what
strips you of life, and what nurtures your body
and spirit? How could you at this time spread
a little more compassion and gentleness? Easter begins with just one resurrection, but that
resurrection spills out into resurrection life for
not just us, but the entire cosmos. But it starts
with one act of death-defying life.
May we all be strengthened in life and compassion this Holy Week.
With love always, Debs
Understanding Clergy Leave
By Rev. Debs
As I was looking at dates and planning leave for
this year I found myself wondering how many of
you may not be familiar with how clergy structure
their time and their leave. And so I decided to
write a little bit about it. Clergy, as you know, do
not work a traditional 9-5 job. Many people want
clergy to be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a
week (lol). But off course that is not possible, as
clergy are not God. So clergy divide the day into
what we call blocks, a morning, an afternoon an
evening each being a block, and we work 10 blocks
a week – which make up a 5 day work week. Naturally, pastoral emergencies and other events can
mean one works more than this some weeks, but
this is how we try to balance the work load, so that
we do not end up working from morning through
till late in the evening.
Clergy have 1 months annual leave each year.
They also are expected to spend time either continuing their own education or going away for intensive prayer and 2 weeks are given per year for this.
(It is with this leave that I have done my own doctoral studies). Lastly, every 5 years clergy are given 3 months sabbatical leave. Clergy have one of
Page 3
the highest burn out rates of any profession. This is
because we don’t have set hours, we are on call 24
hours a day almost every day, unless we go away.
We carry in our hearts your tears, your grief, the
pain that you have been through or are going
through. We in one day can move from a death, to a
celebration and back again to another tragedy. This
emotional roller coaster day after day drains clergy
emotionally as in no other profession. It is for this
reason that sabbaticals are given. Sabbatical leave
helps to prevent clergy burn out and enables clergy
to remain for far longer in a parish in a healthy
This year I will be taking my annual leave in August as my sister and her 2 children will be coming
out to visit!!! I will be taking Sunday services during this month. My sabbatical leave we decided
with the vestry, will be taken over 3 years, 1 month
at a time. And so I will be taking my second block
of sabbatical leave 11 May – 11 June. I am hoping
to spend this time praying and deepening my own
spiritual journey.
I hope this helps explain to you a little better how
clergy structure our time and leave. If you have
any questions, don’t hesitate to ask me!

 Ate far too many pancakes at Cartwright’s Maple Tree Inn.
The gardening project was discussed. There is food
insecurity for the future. Creating food corridors in

accomplished all at once. What do we as Episcopalians want to bring to others?
groups are doing well. The double doors in the
parish hall needed to be repaired. Due to the inclement weather, the doors could not be locked.
What is needed for the playground has to be addressed and are there any grants that could help defray the cost?
FINANCES: Jack presented the Treasurer’s Report which included All Balance Sheets and MTD
Analysis of Revenues and Expenses. Parishioners

Thirty Hour Famine - By Pam Fitzmorris:
The teen class certainly has been busy learning and
serving. This spring these wonderful young
Christians will be participating in 2 service projects. On April 24-25, they will be participating in
our annual 30 Hour Famine. Students will be
looking for sponsors as they fast for 30 hours to
earn money to feed hungry children in South America. On May 2-3 our teens will be participating in
Rhain's Car City. They will be spending the night
at Asbury First Methodist Church along with teens
from other parishes. Our teens are looking for
sponsors for this as well. As you know, Trinity is
an active participant in this wonderful program
which provides emergency temporary housing for
families at Trinity Emmanuel Lutheran church
among others. Won't you please consider supporting one of these great kids for either of these very
worthy causes. Thank you for considering.
Crop Walk Set to Go: Mark your calendar!
CROP walk is scheduled for Sunday, May 3rd!
Walk begins and ends at Aldersgate Church. Detailed information will follow as we get closer.
Our Habitat for Humanity House Starts this
May: Groundbreaking for our new house, is tentatively scheduled on May 6 at 43 Murray St. Our lot
is in the Josana neighborhood, north of I-490 in
Rochester and west of the stadiums. Our Greece
Coalition of Churches has built several homes over
the past 15 years, many in this neighborhood. If
you are interested in helping to build the house, all
skills can be utilized. Even if you have never
worked on a house and want to learn a skill, the
supervisors will teach you that new skill. To volunteer, go to the rochesterhabitat.org website, click
on the Volunteer button and follow the instructions
to fill our your profile. Then, in late April or early
May, when our house is listed as an active work
site, you can go to the website and volunteer for a
day. Work days are Tuesday afternoon (12:00 –
4:00, eat lunch before you arrive), and WednesdaySaturday (8:45- 4:00, bring a lunch) Information
on what to wear, where to arrive on your workday,
Page 6
etc. is on the website. On the page that lists volunteer opportunities, click on “construction sites” for
the information you need.
Not a builder? Then you can still help. Our coalition needs to finish the fund raising that will pay
for our portion of the house. Come and support the
Sticky Lips BBQ on May 21 or make a donation
through church to the Greece Churches Habitat for
Humanity Coalition. Sponsor a box of nails ($10),
some door hardware ($25) or a square foot ($65).
Any and all cash donations are thankfully accepted!
Announcing “Team Trinity” - Brooks Schneider:
The annual Tour de Cure bicycle ride to benefit the
American Diabetes Association has been moved to
Saturday this year. As a result, we have formed a
team to participate.
Please plan on joining us
on Saturday, June 13th, as
a rider, volunteer, spectator, and/or financial supporter. It will be a great
opportunity to wear our
Trinity shirts and show
everybody what a fun group of people we are.
For details, please see diabetes.org/rochestertour or
contact me. Please share this with anyone you
know who might be interested in joining in on the
fun, whether Trinity members or not.
You’ve Brought Your Heart
By Linda Wackerow
When you attend Trinity's church service on April 5th
Easter morning take a minute to really notice the cassock that Debs will be wearing. This beautiful garment,
with all of the elegance that comes with the formality
of being a priest, was handcrafted by Laurie Phillips.
She explained it took her about 40 hours to cut and
sew. Take note of the soft linen fabric designed with
small collar, embellished sleeves, darts and folds, and
little cloth covered buttons down the front. To say this
will be worn and honored by Debs for years to come is
an understatement.
I know each of us here at Trinity feel fortunate to have
had many new members from Concord, Epiphany and
Messiah join us over the past few months. We have
come to love them as I feel they love us, and we truly
thank God for them bringing to us their many talents as
well. The beautifully designed quilts sewn by Barb,
Peggy and Alice, the wood crafted items made by Joe the large cross, so meaningful, esp. at Easter and my
favorite, Noah's Ark. Even little Sammy and his desire
to help the children in Guatemala have shoes, shows no
matter how young a person is, they can cut a path in
life making it more rewarding. Susan and her strong
desire to make life better for the homeless people of
Bob D. and his knowledge of the bible can only be
summed up by saying we appreciate it when he finds a
scripture to share at that perfect and much needed moment. We have Fred to thank for Habitat for Humanity
and Molly for her interest in the RCSD children. Let
me not forget every Sunday, we have Mike recording
our 10:30 service to share with the housebound and
Suzanne assisting with her power point knowledge.
Lastly, listen to the Intergen Worship songs and hear
how much stronger the chorus sounds with the added
voices of Robin, Jiffy, Mary Ann and Hank. What I
have mentioned in this article does not include the
many committees such as liturgy, altar guild, A-team,
vestry, discernment just to name a few, that many have
been willing to serve on.
If I have left anyone unaccounted for, I apologize. I just
want others, like myself, to realize how much these
many new family members bring to our lives. THANK
Sunday School
By Marion Montstream
As we move into April, our children are anticipating Easter, but also knowing that Palm Sunday precedes Holy Week with all those events leading up
to Jesus' Resurrection.
Easter Sunday will be an Intergen family service.
The “Alleluia,”which was buried on the first Sunday in Lent, will be unburied by the children.
The Mites Boxes will be returned. There have
Page 7
been several children making and selling items for
their Mite Boxes. There is also a “Treasure
Chest”on the narthex table for additional contributions. The sum of all these contributions will go
towards a new playground.
On April 12 our children will be learning about
Thomas the doubting disciple. On April 26 we
shall talk about Jesus as the “good shepherd.” We
will also include Psalm 23.
Have a happy and blessed Easter!
Trinity Green

Film Series: It has been a fun couple of years, but

Earth Day, 2015: Wednesday, April 22nd is the
45th anniversary of the first Earth Day. There is a
major Rochester Earth Day event, a visit by Dr.

be at the MCC Theater (Building 4)
on Tuesday, April 21st from 6:30 –
8:30 PM. The presentation is called “Climate, Energy, and Intergenerational Justice”.
Lend and Borrow List: Do you have some items
at home that you don’t use every day and would be
willing to lend to others for a short time? Maybe
you need a sewing machine, carpet shampooer,
tent, rototiller or extra set of silverware for a day or
two but don’t want it sitting around your house for
years after. If you want to be part of network of
your friends from Trinity that can lend and borrow
from each other, just send Gayle
([email protected]) your name and email
address or phone number. I’ll send the email addresses out to everyone that signs up. If you need
to borrow something, send your request out to the
list to see if anyone has that item.
New Mugs for Coffee Hour: Last month we said
goodbye to disposable styrofoam cups at Sunday
coffee hour and said hello to a set of 50 beautiful
new mugs with the Trinity logo imprinted on
them. This set of 50 mugs is to remain at church
for everyone to use so please do not take them
home. You will have an opportunity in the next
few weeks to purchase a mug for personal use. In
case you're wondering how the mugs will get
washed and ready for the next Sunday's coffee
hour, volunteers will take them home and run them
through the dishwasher then return them the following Sunday. Just let Gayle or Brooks know if
you'd like to help out with that.
