Chapel on the Green - Sunday, 5/8!

Chapel on the Green!
Trinity Episcopal Church
(129 Church Street - Use Side Door)
12:30pm - Putting together Lunches

2:00pm - Worship Gathering and Sharing Lunch Together

Join us as we worship with and also serve the homeless and other fellow New Haven residents on the Green!

This Sunday (5/8), ECV will be providing lunches (and volunteers to serve the lunches - hopefully, that's you!) for those gathered on the Green!

About Chapel on the Green...
Every Sunday at 2:00 pm folks gather on the Upper Green (directly behind Trinity Episcopal Church) for a brief (25-30 minute) service of Holy Eucharist - in all sorts of weather!

This service has attracted a wide variety of people from across New Haven and beyond: those interested in social justice, the homeless, or anyone that does not feel comfortable in a church building. There is a welcoming drum circle before the service at 1:30 pm. Following the service bagged lunches are distributed to all those in need.

What I particularly love about Chapel on the Green (and why I think it's great that we're partnering with them) is that they really are a ministry of presence. This is more than just another service project - this is about joining a community, even if just for the afternoon.

Godʼs grace is woven among the community formed by the housed and unhoused on the Green. This is our time, together, to break down isolation and worship God. All attendees: volunteers, regular parishioners, clergy, staff, are welcome to lunch together.

Come and be a part of this affirming and life-changing ministry... yours and theirs! We know you will not forget it or regret it. Feel free to invite others to come with you - imagine what we can do together!

We hope to see you here!

If you are coming - Please let Hannah or Josh know, so we can make sure we have enough volunteers to help out!
