On Wed, May 10, at 7 p.m., The Episcopal Diocese of Southwest Florida, Clearwater Deanery Dominican Republic Mission team will be hosting the play The Wedding Singer at Francis Wilson Playhouse. Based on a 2006 Tony nominated Broadway musical comedy, the play lovingly spoofs the many trends and characters of the 1980’s while presenting a unique boy meets girl plot. The $30 ticket price includes the play, appetizers, desserts, a silent auction, and a cash bar. The group hopes to raise $16,000 for this year’s mission trip to the Dominican Republic when much needed repairs and maintenance will be made to the church and school. Thank you in advance for your support. Please buy your tickets after service from Ernie Colquette or Sybil Lotz.
Help provide much needed Spanish Prayer Books for the 78 Church congregations in the Dominican Republic. Each $20 donation will provide one prayer book. Please make checks payable to Holy Trinity, write prayer book in the memo line, and drop it in the plate on Sunday. Or make a donation online at holytrinityclw.org. For more info, contact Ernie Colquette, who will be inscribing each Prayer Book and delivering them while on mission in the Dominican Republic.
