Holy Trinity Church's 2020 Annual Meeting

"... Nothing will separate us from the love of Christ ..."

This year's annual meeting, which was held Jan. 31, was very different from previous years. Still, the business of the church was conducted virtually and by conference call -- both without a hitch. At left, Father Chattin speaks as Senior Warden Joe Sirak and outgoing Junior Warden Jessica Greenfield sit socially distanced at separate tables in the Great Hall. At right, Father Chattin delivers his annual report as his sermon at 9:30 Mass.

Deb Cruz presents a look at Holy Trinity's finances during the COVID-19 pandemic. Deb took over the treasurer's post in early 2020 from Donna Ray, who moved to Pennsylvania after serving as treasurer for a decade. In 2020, Holy Trinity added an electronic-giving option on the website.

The Episcopal Church defines stewardship as: What I do, with all that I have, after I say, "I believe," and using the gifts God has given us, to do the work God is calling us to do.

Christian stewardship is grateful and responsible use of God's gifts in the light of God's purpose as revealed in Jesus Christ. Christian stewards, empowered by the Holy Spirit, commit themselves to conscious, purposeful decisions.

It wouldn't be an annual meeting without a joke or two from Jim Curran. For many years, Jim and Rob Staszewski have been the dynamic duo behind the griddle at the Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper.
