Prior to Sunday worship on August 18, members of Holy Trinity Chapel in Dennysville assembled relief packages that will be distributed to persecuted Christian communities in the African nation of Sudan. The relief packages contained shoes, clothing, blankets, bed linens, soap, school supplies, and other essential items. It took several weeks for chapel members to gather all of the supplies. A picture of the congregation was also added to each package. After the Eucharist the completed packages were placed on the altar and blessed by Fr. Andraeas. They will be sent to Voice of the Martyrs for final shipping to Africa. Voice of the Martyrs is a mission organization that ministers to Christians who are displaced and persecuted because of their faith. Holy Trinity Chapel is a conservative Anglican mission fellowship that meets at 38 Cemetary Road in Dennysville. For more information or Eucharist service times, call Rev. Dr. Alan Andraeas or Sue Andraeas at 726-5129 or email at .
