Dear Trinity Family,

In June of last year I announced to the Vestry and Congregation my intention to retire from my position as Rector at Trinity in November 2014. In consultation with Bishop Lee and the vestry I have continued to serve as Rector as the search process has unfolded. My desire to do so was to enable the ministry of the congregation to move forward, uninterrupted, as the earliest stages of the search process took shape. I believe that goal has been met and I trust that my presence during this phase has been beneficial and positive.

On Saturday, May 10th  join the B&G Team and your fellow parishioners for a day in the sun as we celebrate spring with the All Parish Spring Clean-up.  We'll be cleaning up the grounds and some spaces in the building.   There will be plants to plant and mulch to spread.  If you have rakes and wheel barrows - bring them along.  We'll be cleaning up the kitchen and cleaning the pews.  We'll even be doing some painting.  So there's a variety of tasks - whether you prefer buildings or grounds.  We'll start at 8:30 and go until early afternoon or until we're done.  We'll have coffee and donuts in the morning and pizza for lunch.  Questions, contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Is there an Anglican Vision?  On Sunday mornings beginning on May 4, from 11:45am to 1:00pm, John Dulkinys and Jim Lanning will be leading a discussion of why it matters that we are specifically an Episcopal church.  The program continues through Sunday, June 8 and will explore the following topics:  (1) a quick history of Anglicanism; (2) Anglican Believing; (3) Anglican Worship; (4) Identity and Diversity; (5) the Church as Sacrament; and (6) the specific history of Trinity.  Mostly we will be using a book from the Church Teaching Series, but you will not really need to have that book or have read it to fully participate in the discussion.  If you have questions, please contact either John Dulkinys, This email address is being protected from spambots.
