Holy Trinity Church in Rahway NJ sponsored an event for the blessing of First Responder vehicles on Sunday 22 July 2018. In commemoration of Prophet Elijah (remembered on 20 July), the parish invited First Responders of the city of Rahway for a vehicle blessing. The day began with a short prayer service in front of the church, followed by the blessing of fire trucks, police cars, ambulance, and parish vehicles.

 

All present were anointed with blessed oil from the tomb of Christ, sang “Memory Eternal” for those who lost their lives in our service, and “Many Years” to all First Responders. Lunch was provided by two local restaurants and served in the parish fellowship room.

 

The First responders have asked the parish to consider moving the event to September so more men & women may attend.

 

“Their appreciation was humbling,” said Father Theodore Gregory (parish rector), “and the fellowship priceless!”
