2nd Annual Foot Care Clinic

Thursday, April 21, 2011, 1pm to 3pm.


Chapel on the Green, a weekly outdoor service sponsored by Trinity Episcopal Church, will combine the tradition of foot-washing with real foot care for those who live on the city's streets, Maundy Thursday, April 21, 2011, 1:00-3:30pm, outdoors, behind Trinity Church, on the Green.

Feet will be washed and massaged; new socks provided and vouchers for a new pair of shoes at Bob's Stores will be distributed for those first 50 having their feet washed; rain or shine, behind Trinity Church on the New Haven Green.

Come join Ian Douglas, Connecticut Episcopal Bishop Diocesan, Laura Ahrens, Bishop Suffragan, local clergy, Yale physician's assistants, Gateway College nurse practitioners and many other caring and giving people, and make a gentle difference in the life of another!

Volunteers to manage the line, wash feet, support feet washing stations and issue vouchers get ready for the ride of your lives!

Wanna give good presence? Let us show you how!

Volunteer orientation commences promptly on Sunday, April 17th immediately following the Chapel on the Green service from 3:15 - 3:45pm, behind Trinity Church, on the Green, in New Haven. You might be the lucky person whose feet I wash!

We'll show all attending, the big picture set-up, what to expect, step-by-step flow from a client's point of view, a foot washer's view, et al..

Seriously, this particular gift of presence and affirmation of another isolated human being, lifting them into an embrace of loving community, will be one of the most spiritual, calming and satisfying experiences of your life AND the life of the person you serve.

We hope to see you there!

Maundy Thursday is about Christ giving a new commandment to love one another as he loved us. At the heart of this holy day is service. Chapel on the Green, COTG, is an outdoor ministry of Trinity Church and gathers each Sunday at 2:00 p.m. behind Trinity Church, to feed body and soul.

Foot care is a real issue for those living on the streets. We will have medical staff, including podiatrists, to perform foot examinations. We are also distributing socks. Warm dry socks are crucial to many people who attend COTG and are often more desired than food. We also will distribute shoe vouchers with thanks to discounts from Bob's Stores in Hamden.


If you would like to donate $50 for shoes (you may give less, you may give more) please make checks payable to Trinity Church with "Foot Clinic" in the memo.

For more information, please call Chris Evans: 203.927.2004; cevans@trinitynewhaven.org.

Thank you!
