God is the source of our nourishment. Our Lord’s invitation to “take and eat . . . take and drink” is a repeated one. In the Holy Eucharist, in the word read and proclaimed, in the assembly of the people of God, the dominion of God has come near. Rejoice! Your name is written in heaven.

Pastor and Dagmar Have Arrived!
After a cross-country journey, Pastor Miller and Dagmar have arrived in New York with their dog Cisco. They are busy setting up their apartment and setting familiar with the city. We are excited to welcome them as Pastor Miller preaches and presides this Sunday. There will be a small reception to welcome them after Mass on Sunday.
Traveling over the weekend? It’s important to rest our bodies and minds from the business of life. Summer is a natural time to make those necessary escapes from the city. However, don’t let your spiritual life take a back seat during this time! If you’re in the city during the weekdays, remember there’s a brief 25 minute Contemplative Mass every Wednesday at 6:30PM. Make time to center yourself in prayer, be nourished by the sacrament, and give thanks to God for all the blessings of this life.
Ideas for Welcoming Pastor Miller and Dagmar
July 1 and the arrival of Pastor Miller and his wife Dagmar can’t get here soon enough! As we eagerly await their arrival, let’s think of our best ideas for how to show them a warm welcome through the various stages of a transition. Enter suggestions in the spaces by following this link:
IDEAS FOR WELCOMING
Also note, we understand Dagmar would love to hear about “favorite places” of “all types” in any of the boroughs. She wants to really get a “lay of the land” (e.g., where is your favorite fish store; favorite museum; favorite place to relax?”). The last question provides space where you can list the name and address of the location and we will locate it on a map that will be provided to Dagmar and Pastor Miller upon their arrival in New York.
NEW HOLY TRINITY MEMBER DIRECTORY!
As a service to both our newest and longtime members AND in order to welcome Pastor Miller and Dagmar to our congregation, we are excited to create a new pictorial directory. We are working with Lifetouch Photography who will handle all aspects of the project, from shooting the photography to printing the directories. All sittings will be held at Holy Trinity from July 6-10. Please click here to sign up for a photo portrait session. A sign up sheet will also be available at church after Sunday morning services during coffee hour.
All individuals and families who sit for a portrait will receive a FREE 8″x10″ photo and a printed directory with no pressure to purchase anything. You will have the opportunity to select from digital proofs on the day of your photo session and purchase additional portraits, if desired.
To make this directory a big success (and an invaluable resource to all of us), we need ALL of you to participate. Please make every effort to sign up for (and attend!) a session from July 6-10, however, if you are not able to attend one of these dates, please contact the office and we will look into setting a makeup date in the future. Thank you in advance for your participation!
