Parish Council Meeting
There will be a meeting of Holy Trinity’s Parish Council on Sunday, May 6, 2012, following Liturgy.
All Parish Council members are urged to attend.
Adult Bible Study
Steve Durham will continue teaching  classes on the Prophet Isaiah in the next few weeks.
    We will look at historical background of the prophet (his times were disturbingly like our own), and then look at major themes in relevant chapters.
    Almost the entire book of Isaiah is read in Orthodox Churches during the course of Lent (along with Genesis and Proverbs). So why is this eighth-century BC prophet so important to the churches — and not just Orthodox! — and what are its message for our faith and practice today?
    The “Isaiah” Study schedule has been changed. The next discussion will soon be announced, and will begin 30 minutes after the end of the Divine Liturgy in the fellowship room.  
It also will meet approximately every other Sunday, depending on other previously scheduled events.
    So grab your coffee etc., and join us at the designated table next door!
Food For The Hungry
In an ongoing effort to both encourage our youth to become more involved in their community, and to help feed the hungry families right here in Chicago, the Church School has a continuing food pantry collection throughout the year.
    Please bring your non-perishable canned and boxed food for distribution through Onward Neighborhood House, just a few blocks south of Holy Trinity.
    During this time of the Great Fast, this can be considered a way of giving alms to the needy. Please bring a box or can of something to share with those in need.
    The Food Donation Box is now located in the main hall for your added convenience.
    Please bring something.
    Every little bit helps!

Memory Eternal!
We extend our deepest sympathies and sincere condolences to the family of Anna Kapuska, who fell asleep in the Lord on Sunday, April 22.  She will be missed!

May her Memory be Eternal!
It is Written...
It is written: “Remember Jesus Christ raised from the dead;” and again, “If Christ be not risen, then our preaching is in vain!”

In what follows, he says, “But now is Christ risen from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep; - And He was seen of Cephas, then of the Twelve; (for if believe not the one witness, you have twelve witnesses), then He was seen of above five hundred brethren at once;” (if they disbelieve the twelve, let them admit the five hundred); “after that He was seen o James, His brother,” the first Bishop of this diocese.

Seeing then that such a bishop originally saw Christ Jesus when risen, do not you, His disciple, disbelieve Him.
