In response to racial violence and turmoil in summer 2020, Trinity Cares members gathered to share their stories, reflect together, and discuss ways to take action together for social justice.
The Education group meets for reflection, sharing and to explore ways to make a positive impact on racial injustice in the area of child and adult education. We will review resources, plan projects and search for ways to support existing work.
Trinity’s parishioner-led Prison Ministry advocates for social justice reform of prisons and incarceration and supports fair reentry processes and opportunities for those returning home. We engage in direct communication to uplift the spirits of those incarcerated, letting them know they have a loving community in our ministry and are not forgotten. All are welcome to join our monthly meetings, hear from speakers on social justice and criminal justice reform topics, and learn about opportunities to get involved with our work.
The Environmental Justice ministry group examines and acts around the most pressing problems of climate change and environmental justice, through the lens of faith.
Monday, March 11: Weaving Care of God’s Creation Into the Fabric of Religious Life
In November 2023, the National Religious Partnership for the Environment, based in Washington, D.C., conducted interviews and a roundtable of Black clergy to discuss new National Monument designations and other land protections that chronicle Black history. Cassandra Carmichael, Executive Director, will introduce us to the work of NRPE and the relationship of storytelling and Black history to public lands.
This is the first in a two-part series, “Stories on the Land”; on May 13 we will learn about the effort to protect historic Carr’s Beach in Maryland.
NRPE brings together a diverse alliance of faith institutions and leaders in order to bring voice and action on behalf of caring for God's Creation. The alliance reaches 160,000 congregations in the U.S. to protect God's creation through worship, education, stewardship and public witness. Ms. Carmichael has a graduate degree in environmental education from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
Created by The Episcopal Church, Sacred Ground is a film- and readings-based dialogue series on race, grounded in faith. In a small group, we will engage a curriculum that walks through chapters of America’s history of race and racism, weaving in threads of family story, economic class, and political and regional identity.
Reach out to Ruth Frey to learn more about future Sacred Ground cohorts. Note that in-person attendance at Trinity Commons will be required at select sessions.
Third Sunday of every month at Trinity Commons, 12:30–2:30pm
Third Monday of every month online, 6:30–7:30pm
