Chant Workshop and Evensong

For All Saints

Chant workshop and Evensong

Chant Workshop and All Saints Evensong

Here’s more information about the Chant Workshop:

The Chant Workshop will be led by Trinity’s Music Director, Christine Gevert. She will teach singers the theory and practice of chant in both Latin and English. Besides providing instruction about in the technical aspects of this ancient practice, this workshop is also a vehicle to experience the spiritual aspect of chanting.

The Workshop will conclude with a public All Saints Evensong at 7 PM. It will include the chants learned in the workshop and some hymns. Trinity Choir singers and some guests will also sing Spanish and English Renaissance Polyphony. Singers that want to participate in this polyphonic repertoire, need to contact Ms. Gevert and will be invited to a prior rehearsal. Scores will be provided ahead of this rehearsal.

To register for the workshop, please send an email to: The workshop is free of cost.
Participants are asked to bring some food to share for a light potluck dinner.

Sunday Bulletin for October 2

This Sunday, October 2, is the Sunday we celebrate the Feast of St. Francis and hold our annual blessing of the animals.

Unlike many churches that separate the pet blessing from their worship, we do the two together — during the 10:30 AM Holy Eucharist!

Pets do need to be leashed or caged, but otherwise, bring them along!  We’re always surprised at how well they conduct themselves, even in an unfamiliar place with other animals and people they don’t know.

If you’re worried about what you will do with your pet when you are receiving Communion, worry no more.  Just look for someone wearing one of these badges and let him (or her) take care of your pet for those moments.

News about the refugee family….

As most of you know, Trinity Lime Rock is strongly supporting the Church of St. Mary in Lakeville in their efforts to resettle a refugee family in the Northwest Corner.   In the interests of keeping everyone well informed, here is an update from Sean White from St. Mary’s providing current news about the refugee family.

News about the refugee family

Dear fellow Refugee Committee members and friends-

The Al Ghanems are settling into their new home and discovering their new environment.  The family is wonderful: gracious and grateful. The kids are charming and ready to learn.  The father is eager to work.  The mother is happy to see her family in a safe place.

The Al Ghanems are amazed by their new home (thank you, Wendy Hamilton)!  And I am amazed by the enormous amount of work completed in three short weeks by the committed Trinity and St. Mary’s parishioners, particularly Bob and Carol Hoskins and John and Barbara Pogue who took charge of home preparation.  The generosity of many others in providing furniture and household goods, and stocking the kitchen with food is astonishing.

Our focus now turns to self-sufficiency.  This means employment and English language learning for the parents, and schooling for their children.

As we navigate these challenges, we are most fortunate to have native Arabic speaker Zeina Mehio on the team.  Every day, she is helping the family find their way in this strange new world.  She is getting help from fellow Arabic speakers Paula Russo and Samia Elsafty.

Interpreters are necessary right now, but English language proficiency is key to independence for the Al Ghanems.  Our group also includes Katherine Perry, an experienced, professional ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) teacher.  She will begin formal English instruction at St. John’s next week for the parents (and other adults in town).  Informal English lessons began at JFK, and have continued on a daily basis.  Zeina and Katherine have been working tirelessly these past ten days!

You may have seen Katherine and Rick Meehan herding six kids at the Grove yesterday.  They’re loving it!  You may have seen me and Zeina at the Social Security Administration office in Torrington.  Not so much!

You may also see the Al Ghanems around town.  Please say hello!  They need to practice their English.

Much more remains to be done to get our family launched.  We are fortunate to have Dick Collins, a medical doctor, and B.J. Christinat, a social worker on our team to navigate the official resettlement requirements.  Once these formalities are complete, the kids will start at Salisbury Central School.  Principal Lisa Carter has welcomed us with open arms.

A few more shout-outs are in order.  Early this year, Lloyd Baroody and I were sitting around discussing the refugee crisis, wondering what we could do on a personal basis.  With the encouragement of Leo Gafney and Rick Meehan, we formed this group under the auspices of St. Mary’s Church.  Father Joe Kurnath gave us his full and unwavering support.  Heidi Truax at Trinity Lime Rock Church came on board without hesitation.  Others of different faiths and many with no religious connections joined to create this diverse mix of people—a dozen in the core group, and many dozens beyond.  We share one goal: to help a family in need.  Thank you all.  We’ve gone from talk to deeds in six short months!

Many of you have already made contributions; many more have offered to assist.  Here’s where we are:

Household goods: We do not need more food and furniture.  Our work is done as far as preparing the house and stocking the kitchen.

Helpers: We are OK with helpers for now.  Over the coming weeks, we will review our need for drivers, baby sitters, tutors, ESOL teachers etc.

Clothing: we are assessing the family’s needs.  We will solicit donations for new clothing for school and for the winter months, probably in October.

Employment: IRIS, our refugee agency, will assess the parents’ job skills next week.  Our group will help with their job search.  If you need hard workers with limited English, let us know!  

Money* and prayers: we need more! Keep it coming!

We will keep you posted on the Al Ghanems’ progress.  At some point, when they tell us they are ready, we will have a reception for the family at St. Mary’s.

Thanks again for your help so far.  I am proud to be part of such a welcoming community and country.

Trinity Times for July and August

Long before Trinity had a website or a Facebook page or Instagram account, long before Trinity had a weekly e-mail newsletter, we had the Trinity Times.  Long published in paper form before we added the electronic version, the Trinity Times has been the go-to source for information about Trinity for decades.  Many decades!

Alexis Dorf has been the editor of “the TT” for a long time now, and her steady hand on the editorial tiller has made it the publication that it is.

One tradition has been that in the summer the Trinity Times is published as a single issue for July and August.

Without further ado, here is the July/August issue of the Trinity Times for 2016.  Enjoy it!
