Stitching in the Spirit

Stitching in the Spirit is a monthly gathering open to stitchers from all disciplines (knitting, crochet, quilting, needlepoint, etc), as well as those who want to learn. We come together to create scarves, mittens, prayer shawls, and other items for those in need of special care, from within the parish as well as from the broader Boston community and even across the country. As we work toward this goal, we experience and cultivate the fellowship of our members and what each brings to our endeavors. At the same time, we foster our spiritual development, celebrate the creative process, and share our skills.

If you would like to join the group or your or someone you love might
benefit from a prayer shawl, please contact: Mary Sherman, mary_sherman@us.ibm.com, 617-367-3925

-----------------------------------------

ABOUT BAPTISM AT TRINITY

What is Holy Baptism?
Holy Baptism is the sacrament by which a person becomes a member of the Christian Church. While God’s love and compassion is for all, not just for those who are baptized, it is through baptism that each person may intentionally enter into, celebrate, and accept that love and compassion. The service of Holy Baptism may be found in The Book of Common Prayer beginning on page 297. And the sacraments portion of the catechism may be found on pages 857-859.

Who may be baptized at Trinity Church?
Baptism, whether for a child or an adult, is not a light or casual matter. Anyone who has carefully considered the matter and who is prepared to become a Christian and live out his or her faith as a member of Trinity Church may be baptized here.

When do baptisms take place at Trinity Church?
We baptize children several times a year, after their parents (at least one of whom must be baptized and a member of Trinity Church) attend a mandatory preparation class to understand what it means to take baptismal vows on behalf of children. (Godparents are invited and encouraged, but not required, to attend and participate in the preparation class.) Adults are usually baptized at the Easter Vigil, after they have completed our Inquirer’s Class, which is offered twice a year, and entered in a relationship with at least one sponsor (who must be baptized and a member of Trinity Church).
