This week at Holy Trinity: Saturday, 5:30 a.m.: Evening Prayer and Conversation on the Conference Line; Sunday: Tenth Sunday after Pentecost, 9 a.m. (note new time): Family Mass and outdoor refreshments, weather permitting; 10:30 a.m.: Holy Eucharist at St. Bartholomew's, 1989 Rt. 70 East, Cherry Hill, coffee hour in the narthex; 6 p.m. Progressive Dinner Committee dinner/meeting, Holy Trinity Parish Hall.
It’s a new day at Holy Trinity Church. Our affiliation with St. Bartholomew’s Church in Cherry Hill began July 1. Over the coming months, we will begin to live into this new relationship as we discern how God is leading our congregations.
The biggest immediate change is on July 3, the time of our weekly Sunday Eucharist at Holy Trinity moved to 9 a.m. (St. Bart’s service time is now 10:30 a.m.). What isn’t changing is that I will remain rector of Holy Trinity, although with a reduced presence. Clergy costs will be divided between the two churches. Over time, we will develop a clergy team for the affiliation. Do know that this is in no way a merger as each of the churches will remain independent.
This affiliation is an experiment as we respond to societal change and post-COVID pandemic conditions. Much is yet to be developed, but this new arrangement offers us the opportunity for expanded ministry, education, and fellowship as both congregations work together.
Also, we can consider the affiliation as one church with two worship sites. If for some reason you are unable to attend a service at one church, you would have the option of attending the other at an alternate time.
As we live into this new way of being the Church, may we be generous in spirit and good humor. As with any experiment, there will be mistakes and failures along the way. But there will also be tremendous opportunity for activities, deepening faith, and a closer walk with Christ.
I ask your prayers for our congregations and for me. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or needs (609) 941-5152.
With Faith, Hope, and Joy,
The Rev. Mark H. ChattinRector

As part of their mission and outreach efforts, Holy Trinity and St. Bartholomew, as well as residents of Premier Cadbury of Cherry Hill, are reaching out to the “Upcycling Card Program” at St. John of God Community Services in Westville.
The vestry will be collecting greeting cards. The creative citizens in the Vocational Rehabilitation/Adult Services group at St. John of God will remove the front of each card and create a new greeting card. More than 1,000 have been collected thus far.
Boxes for the cards are on tables near the tower door at Holy Trinity and in the narthex at St. Bart's for your cards. Holy Trinity mission and outreach committee member Craig Burgess will forward your cards to Kelly Stout, chair of the card program.
Should you have any questions about this effort, call Craig at 856-667-2003 or see him at coffee hour after Sunday Mass.
Please don't forget to keep up with your pledge. Bills still need to be paid. You can give electronically. Click here
