When there is so much bad news around our country and world, it is nice to hear a story about people doing good.  This article was in the October 2017 issue of the Parish Post -- Holy Trinity's monthly newsletter to its congregation.  It tells a story about people coming together in the midst of the craziness of construction on the Downtown Greenway and along Fisher Avenue and making the most out of the closed lanes, dust, and detours.  Thank you to Holy Trinity and their members for their continued support of the Downtown Greenway!
