happy h.u.g. thanksgiving!

On Saturday, November 20, H.U.G. welcomed twenty of our neighbors into the Community Room for a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner. After months and months of being separated by the pandemic, we were overjoyed to welcome our friends back into the church for a delicious meal. Thank you to Jan, Damon, Amy, Jim, and Fay for your hospitality and generosity!

support our service ministries

The Service and Advocacy Committee is seeking volunteers who are able to make sandwiches and walk one morning or afternoon in Central Park or in the surrounding neighborhood, giving them out to the homeless. The ingredients for the sandwiches have already been donated and you can choose whatever morning or afternoon works best for you. It is always advisable that you walk in pairs so ask a friend to join you! If you are able to give some time to the Homeless Ministry please get in touch with Myrna Payne at or Sue Boccio at for more details. The Homeless Ministry epitomizes doing the Lord’s work!

If walking is not your thing, you can still help with feeding the hungry of New York City by volunteering at our Saturday H.U.G.program, which reopens on September 25. To work with H.U.G. please get in touch with Jan Lindemann at  

As Christians we are asked to put our good thoughts into action. The Service and Advocacy Committee appeals to you for help with these two most worthy ministries! Thank you. 

wreath-making returns


A holiday wreath-making event returns to Holy Trinity on Friday, December 17 at 5 p.m. Help green the sanctuary for Christmas alongside friends from the Holy Trinity community.


christmas music & greens for 2021

Holy Trinity has a rich tradition of decking the halls, well, decorating the nave, altar and church doors, as well as beautiful music during Christmas Eve services. And we would love your help and support this year to make it happen. The Christmas trees, wreaths and garland cost $2,000, and the musicians and singers cost $4,000 - so we invite you to consider a special gift to help defray the expenses to Holy Trinity. You are welcome to give in celebration or in memory of loved ones or just because!

Donation forms will be included in the Sunday bulletins for the coming weeks; or you can click here: and give directly to the 2021 Christmas Music and Greens fund!

We thank you for your consideration and your generosity! 

A blessed Advent and Christmas season to you all,
The Generosity Committee
