The season of Lent is a helpful tradition of intention: setting aside 40 days to reconnect and refresh our life with God. Starting with Ash Wednesday on Feb. 17, we are offering a variety of very creative ways to help you make the most of your Lenten experience. Please notice, there are both group and individual opportunities, and all are extremely flexible so that you can make them fit your schedule. And, every opportunity can be one you invite others who do not attend Trinity to join with you.
Ash Wednesday won’t look exactly the way it does in other years, but this Holy Day happens only once a year and you are invited to fit one of our services into your observance of Ash Wednesday this year! Zoom Service - 8:00 am - pick up ashes on Monday or Tuesday to use during
the service. To attend, go to the Trinity website homepage and click on "Join Prayer at 8 & 8" button Outdoor Services - Bring your own chair or stay warm in your car and listen on Trinity's new radio broadcast on 88.1. You'll stop by a table on the way into the parking lot to pick up ashes and Communion. 12:30 - 12:50 pm Outdoors with prayer and self-imposed ashes. 4:30 - 5:00 pm Outdoors with self-imposed ashes and Communion. 7:00 - 7:30 pm - Outdoors with self-imposed ashes and Communion.

A retreat is a way to get away from your regular schedule in order to get back on track, to recenter your life in Christ, and to hear more clearly God’s invitation for direction. But getting away is hard! So, we are happy to reintroduce the Mini Retreat, a Saturday morning, hone for lunch fellowship with God. Each retreat is put together to help you let go, engage, and listen to God. Since 2017, more than 100 people have found the mini retreat helpful in finding peace and Gods presence.
This year the retreats are constructed around the realities of the Covid protocols. Twelve people will be given areas in the church : Five in the Sanctuary, Five in the Hall, one in the chapel, and one in the upstairs lounge. Rest rooms will be designated to limit traffic. There will several openings for online participation, with the requirement that participants prepare the areas where they will be. The entire retreat will be led on Zoom, so your laptop, phone or iPad is required. If interested, give the office a call (860-651-0201) or send an email to: email@example.com. The retreats on 2/20 and 3/6 are open to everyone. The retreat on March 20th will be a Men's Retreat.

ADDITIONAL ITEMS OF INTEREST AT TRINITY
Learning to Pray the Examen is a series of brief videos that teach and guide you through the Prayer of Examen. This way of praying is different than most. It seeks to help us discover where God is already present and speaking in our lives. The prayer itself follows five steps and can be brief, or lead to deeper reflection. You can use the videos like an app, and fit them into a time that works best for you. Most people find that it is simple, but surprising in how they help us discover not just peace, but God already walking with us in our everyday lives.
