Week of December 22, 2019

Trinity said goodbye to a member of our community last week.
Every Thursday several volunteers from Community Living Opportunities (CLO) arrive at the Trinity Interfaith Food Pantry to pick up a list of requested items to be purchased at a local store to fill out the shelves. These volunteers are developmentally disabled, and are accompanied by a supervisor who, in addition to driving them to Aldi’s, also takes them to McDonald’s for a quick snack along the way.
Last week I was dismayed to learn that Charles Alexander, one of the volunteers, died unexpectedly in his sleep. Charles was an older gentleman, kind and friendly, who found great satisfaction in being a helpful member of our community, frequently asked me about one of my dogs (whom he met one week at the office), and would share with me various bits of news about his own life.
His obituary specifically mentioned the pride he felt working here at the pantry, and he will be missed.
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Rob+
