MARQUAND CHAPEL SERVICES, WEEKS OF 1/26-1/30
Please join us in the next two weeks for the following services at 10:30 a.m.:

Monday, January 26: Yale Committee for Social Justice.
Tuesday, January 27: 4th-year M.Div. student Caleb Maskell will  preach.

Friday, January 30: the Rev. Ruth Drews of Resurrection Lutheran Church will preach and preside at our community Eucharist service.  All who gather as a community in worship are welcome at the communion table in Marquand Chapel.

 

Monday Vespers

 

All are welcome to join the Lutheran and Episcopal students for a peaceful, prayerful vespers service every Monday afternoon at 4 p.m. The service lasts approximately half an hour.   We worship in the prayer chapel in the basement of the library.  The prayer chapel is a hidden gem of the Div School but it is a bit confusing to find.  Please don't be intimidated.  Come to the library, take the elevator downstairs, and follow the signs.  Come on in and join us.

 

Thursday Night Compline

Please join us for Compline on Thursday nights at 9:00 p.m. in the Henri Nouwen Prayer Chapel on the ground floor of the library.   Currently we are doing a service adapted from Common Worship 2000. At other times we have used the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer, Taize
chants and the Lutheran Book of Worship. The service lasts approximately twenty minutes, but we often linger in fellowship and talk of our common life.  Come, magnify the Lord with us!

Lecture and Discussion: Religion and the Culmination of Technological Civilization                     - Thursday Jan. 29, 4:15-5:45 (Bushnell) Room S-100.  
(Under the RSV room) Driven by science and market forces, the rate of technological progress continues to accelerate toward some unknown crescendo--empowering humanity "to do more and more, with less and less." Is this increasingly technology-determined civilization sustainable? What has religion to say about the ethics, alternatives, and outcomes of living through what may be the culmination of technological civilization?
  - Presenter: James Clement van Pelt MAR ‘03, Research Fellow at YDS, focusing on theology of technology and spiritual anthropology (encompassing consciousness studies). His technology career has included positions as Director of Advanced Solutions for Dun &

Volunteer Opportunities

 

   Your donation may save a Annette’s life

 Sunday February 8, 2004

12 P.M. to 5 P.M.

 (on the corner of Chapel and Temple Streets)

Adults between the ages of 18 and 60 will be asked to:

*  have a few drops of blood taken from their finger

*  be listed in the National Marrow Donor Program Registry

Annette has cancer and needs a bone marrow transplant.  She is a pharmacist and her husband is a pediatrician at the Hill Health Center.  She has two beautiful children, McAllister and Ben.  Annette is of African American ancestry and doctors have told her that the most likely donor would be someone that matches her ancestry.  To save Annette’s life (&/or someone like her) we need your help.   If you are African American, please come to our screening.  We ask that you also give this flyer to at least 10 eligible people.  Tell them how important they are to Annette, her family, and to others with cancer or serious blood diseases.  We are praying that a thousand people will come.  There is no fee for eligible donors, so all you will need to bring is a generous spirit and a desire to save a life.  (For more info. about donation call 1 (800) 676-4545 or visit www.marrow.org).  PLEASE CALL THE TRINITY PARISH OFFICE AT 624-3101  OR EMAIL US AT: trinity.church@snet.net TO LET US KNOW YOU ARE COMING

                                                      

                                                     Mentoring Opportunity
St. Thomas's Episcopal Day School (on Whitney Ave.) is looking for Divinity School students who are interested in spending one hour per week mentoring elementary-age students.  The mentoring involves helping with homework and giving extra academic help.  Most important, though, is the formation of enriching relationships.  The students
targeted for the mentoring program are in an after-school program from 3-5 pm.  If you would like to work with a child one hour a week (between 3-5 pm M-F), or would like more information, please contact Jennifer Creswell, St. Thomas's seminarian, at
jennifer.creswell@yale.edu or 624-0265
