Trinity by-the-Sea to hold morning prayer

The public is invited to join morning prayer and healing at the Trinity Episcopal Church by-the-Sea beginning at 10 a.m. Wednesday at Kilolani Hall, located at 100 Kulanihakoi St. in Kihei.

Prayer is set every Wednesday morning, and the church hopes that it will continue to be a permanent fixture.

Eucharist also will be held once a month beginning Wednesday as determined by the priest. It will follow the morning prayer celebration.
