SHROVE TUESDAY PANCAKE DINNER

Shrove Tuesday is the day before the starting of Lent on Ash Wednesday. As people restricted their diet during Lent, it became tradition in many countries to use up the luxuries of eggs and milk with a festival meal.  The word “shrove” refers to confession of sins and forgiveness – the theme of  the Lenten season.

ASH WEDNESDAY

The first day of Lent is celebrated forty days before Easter. Ash Wednesday is a day of prayer and fasting to remind us of our need for repentance. It gets its name from the placing of ashes (made from the burning of Palm Crosses) on the forehead of participants to the words “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”

 

BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS

Blessing of the Animals will be on Sunday, September 9, 2018 at 1:15 p.m. in the garden at Holy Trinity for our Scott County community.  We will need to provide cookies, lemonade and dog treats for this event.  Jackie Hardin is coordinating this event, please contact her at 859-621-1046 if you can assist in any way.  Servers, etc are needed to help during this event.  As always, your help is appreciated.

Blessing of the Animals collaborates with the Festival of the Horse Pet Parade which starts at 2:00 p.m. in front of Holy Trinity.  A wide variety of animals are expected to participate.

You may contact the Parish Office at 502-863-0505 with any questions.

 

THE HANGING OF THE GREENS

As we approach Christmas Day we will decorate the church and grounds for the holiday. Saturday, December 15 we will begin at 9:30 to drape garlands of greenery from the rafters and string lights in the trees. Many volunteers are needed to this work.

BLUE CHRISTMAS SERVICE

For those experiencing grief, loss or hardship, the Christmas season is far from the most wonderful time of the year.  A “Blue” Christmas service offers comfort when the holidays aren’t happy. Join the Rev. Karen Booth at Holy Trinity for a service of hope and comfort on Wednesday, December 19 at 7:00 p.m.

LESSONS AND CAROLS

The Festival of Lessons and Carols is a service of Scripture and song that dates to the late 19th century.  It combines a series of lessons, hymns and prayers to reflect the history of God’s relationship with his people.  Our service will be held in conjunction with our Holy Eucharist service on December 30 at 10:00 a.m.
