One Book, One Parish
A Lenten Journey
As a parish, we will read Forgiveness: A Lenten Study by Marjorie J. Thompson. The book is divided into six sections for the six weeks of Lent. Each Sunday we will gather at 9:15 to discuss the section for that week. You do not need to attend all of the reflection sessions in sequence as each section discusses a particular aspect of forgiveness.
If you cannot attend the reflection sessions, I invite you to read the book during the 6 weeks of Lent. I think you will find it enlightening and helpful.
Please email Jan, , or call her between 9 and 2 Tuesday to Friday if you would like to attend the sessions.
Each session is on Sunday @9:15 till 9:45. We will discuss and reflect on the content of the chapter using the study guide in the back of the book. I have ordered 20 books. Please give whatever you can to offset the cost.
I look forward to sharing this Lenten journey with you.

Diocese of New Jersey
The Anti-Racism Ministry in the Diocese of New Jersey comprises the Anti-Racism Commission, the Anti-Racism Team and various anti-racism committees and teams developing within parishes.
You may have heard about the Commission and the Team, but may have questions about what those groups are, what they do, and what is the difference between the Commission and the Team. In a nutshell, the Commission is a supervisory body that creates vision, determines goals, and oversees the activities of the Team. This includes stewardship of funds and support for Team activities, such as anti-racism training, parish workshops, convocation presentations, diocesan conferences, and youth events.
The work of the Anti-Racism Ministry is to share a robust analysis of institutional racism widely to build the Beloved Community in the Diocese of New Jersey.
Training is hosted at Holy Trinity:
participants must attend all days:
Friday, February 21, 5:30 PM to 9:00 PM

Saturday, February 29, 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM
Cost is $50.00
