Search Process
As we continue our search for a new vicar, the Bishop’s Committee met to prepare the data input which will be
used in the computer match process. We had a good working session and our results were forwarded to
Canon Dan Smith. We are making good progress! We now have a completed parish profile and a completed
Church Deployment Profile. Canon Smith hopes to have names of possible candidates for the Bishop’s
Committee to consider by the end of July. Thank you for continuing to use the prayer card with the prayer
from the Book of Common Prayer to help guide us through this search time. Extras are still available in the
basket at the back of the church.
First Sunday of the Month Plate Collection
The first Sunday charitable plate collection for July will be donated to a yet unnamed charity. You have an
opportunity to help select the recipient! Be thinking about what worthy organization you would like to support
and place the name of that organization on a slip of paper in the plate along with your donation this Sunday,
July 4. Let’s see who the lucky winner is!
Dear Friends,
As you may know, the Missouri History Museum in St. Louis is currently hosting an exhibition entitled "Vatican
Splendor: A Journey through Faith and Art" which includes artwork, liturgical vestments & other material, as
well as other items, all on loan from the Vatican in Rome. For more information see
An informal group from Trinity-Kirksville will be visiting the exhibition on Saturday, July 17. The general plan is
to meet up at the Missouri History Museum in St. Louis, see that exhibition, and have a meal together. Since
they recommend that tickets be reserved in advance, it would help to have a count of how many would like to
go. So, if you are interested in going with the group, would you please reply to Julia by e-mail no later than
Friday, July 2 at Of course, if you decide later you'd like to join, I believe individual
tickets are available as well and could be bought at a later date.
Tickets are $19.50 for adults, $17.00 for seniors or college students with college ID, and $13 for children 6 -
12 years of age. (We may be able to receive a $2/ticket discount as a church group, but I need to find out
whether that discount is extended to non-Catholic parishes).
Hope you can join!
Julia & Pete
See you Sunday!
