Trinity is offering a women’s retreat, scheduled for Saturday, May 12 at the Bath Avenue Guest House in Ocean Grove. The retreat will last from 9 AM until 3 PM. The Very Rev. Maria Sanzo will lead the retreat. Mother Maria is an experienced retreat leader and spiritual director – and a fantastic priest! The theme of the retreat is an exploration of how Matthew’s account of the woman with the alabaster jar applies to women of faith today. Our thanks once again to parishioners Barbara and Sandra, proprietors of the Bath Avenue Guest House, for making this location available to the church. The cost for the retreat is $15 per person, including all food and beverages. The retreat is limited to 24 participants. Reservations can be made by calling or emailing the church office.

The New Jersey Gay Men’s Chorus presents “1918: A Musical Time Capsule of Remembrance and Resistance from WWI America,” on Saturday, May 5 at 8:00 PM, here at Trinity. This concert celebrates the quiet power of music made popular a century ago from the voices of soldiers, peacemakers, workers, and suffragettes, featuring songs such as “Hail! Hail! the Gang’s All Here,” “Flanders Fields,” “Armistice 1918,” “Let Me Call you Sweetheart,” and “Solidarity Forever.” The souls of the Armenian Genocide will also be honored with the Armenian folk song “Loosin Yelav.” The beautiful melodies will pay tribute to the brave Americans who served their country, as well as highlight the historical events at home and overseas that led to many progressive changes in WWI America. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for seniors and students when purchased in advance. All tickets are $25 at the door, and are available at www.njgmc.org, by contacting the Chorus at 732-579-8449 or through members of the Chorus directly.
