Our Pet Memorial Garden

The St. Francis Garden was an idea conceived by our late rector, Fr. Mark H. Chattin, after seeing one on a visit to a parish where he had once been the rector.

Several members of the parish, including vestry members Sue Verzella, Theresa Chattin, and Robert Staszewski; former vestry member Pat Penney and former senior warden Yvonne Bones, and Megan Woods, a graphic artist, were involved in the creation of the memorial garden.

For more information, here is a link to the brochure.

Used Cards Wanted

As part of their mission and outreach efforts, Holy Trinity and 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 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 3,100 have been collected thus far and have been delivered to the folks at St. John of God.

Boxes for the cards are on tables near the tower door at Holy Trinity.

Should you have any questions about this effort, call Craig Burgess at 856-667-2003 or see him at coffee hour after Sunday Mass.

More than 3,100 have been collected thus far; Craig has cards for sale.

Prayer Chain Returns

The Holy Trinity Prayer Chain, which has been on hiatus for the last few years, is making a comeback.

We all know the profound effect prayer can have on our own lives and on the lives of those for whom we pray.

If you would like to be part of this newly forming at-home ministry, please speak to or email Theresa Chattin at theresa15@aol.com, or call Charlotte Sink in the church office at 856-858-0491.
