Vestry Announces Endowment Board Appointments

We are pleased to announce that Jane McMullin has been named Chair of the Cathedral Endowment Board and that Scott Davis has been elected Secretary. Three new members have been appointed to the Board: Beth Hathaway, Mike Mayton, and Scott Tabor. They fill seats of outgoing board members Carroll Penick (Chair), Allan Meadors, and Brantly Buck.

The Endowment Board manages the endowment, accepts gifts, and distributes funds according to guidelines established by the Vestry in 2006. The guidelines direct that distributions be limited capital needs of the parish; outreach ministries; seed money for new ministries and special one-time projects; and special purposes specifically designated by donors to the fund.

A Staffing Transition

IMG_0386Dear Members of the  Cathedral,Ms. Anna Squire, our Youth Coordinator, has decided to resign that position in order to pursue graduate studies in environmental biology. Anna hopes to continue her studies in Little Rock (UALR), meaning that she could remain at the Cathedral, still serving as a section leader in the choir, and continuing to coordinate Young Adult Ministries (YAMS).We are sad to see Anna “go” as Youth Coordinator, and keen to see her “stay” as a musician and young Adult program leader!

Anna’s last day as Youth Coordinator will be May 31.

Meanwhile, we will be hatching exciting new plans for our youth program and announcing them sometime this spring!

With warm regards to all,

Chris

“Adult Inquirers Class” – led by The Rev. Canon Paul McLain

Trinity will offer an Adult Inquirers Class beginning in the Season of Lent and continuing throughout Spring.  The class is planned for 13 weeks from March 12 – June 4 and will be led by Canon Paul McLain.  It is designed to be an introduction to what it means to be a Christian in general and an Episcopalian in particular.  The course is a preparation for confirmation or reception in the Episcopal Church by Bishop Larry Benfield on Pentecost Sunday, June 8th, for those who are interested.  Others may see it as a chance to learn (or refresh their learning) about the Episcopal Church and as a way to go deeper in their journey of faith.  The class takes place on Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30 pm in the Conference Room of the Cathedral House.  All are welcome!

Children’s Program in Lent – Giving & Growing

Our Wednesday night children’s program will be focusing on the gifts in our lives, our gifts to others and growing in Christ.  We’ll learn about Mite boxes, plant flowers, have a Passover supper, make Manna Bags for the homeless, collect items (coats, food etc) for The Van and celebrate the Resurrection.  We are looking for a few volunteers to assist us with one night.  Please contact Dawn (372-0294 OR dhowe@trinitylittlerock.org) if you can help us and to register your children.
