How may we help you?

Which service do you attend regularly?

As head usher, I attend the 7:45, the 9:00, and the 11:15 services.

Pulpit side or lectern side?

Usually I’m in the Narthex or near one of the side benches.

What is your most memorable moment at Trinity?

My most memorable moment was my wedding on September 25, 2010.

When not at home, work/school, or church, where might you be found?

I am a “regular” at the Boston Sports Club in Waltham.

What was the last book you read?

I am into reading the sailor/journalist Alan Villiers. I just finished Sons of Sindbad (his choice of spelling) and I’m now reading Cruise of the Conrad.

How do you serve at Trinity?

I am head usher, a member of the Art and Architecture committee, a Trinity tour guide, and a member of the Vestry.

Is there a passage or image in scripture that carries special particular meaning for you?

I love the story in Mark Chapter 7 of the Greek woman who begs Jesus to cleanse her daughter of the devil. Jesus, tired and wanting to be alone with his disciples, responds, “Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it unto the dogs.” The woman answers, “Yes Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children’s crumbs.” Jesus marvels at her faith and her persistence and cleanses her daughter of the devil. It’s a great story about the dynamics of faith and the strength of a mother’s petition that is grounded in both humility and love.

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.<br /><br />If you would like to join the group or your or someone you love might<br />benefit from a prayer shawl, please contact Mary Sherman.<br /><br />Questions?<br />Contact Mary Sherman, <span id="cloak3692">This email address is being protected from spambots.
