At Trinity, we all enjoy and benefit from membership in a community of faithful people - faithful to our Lord and to each other. We carry fond memories of Trinity wherever we go: Rich worship experiences; friends who have become part of our extended, caring family; Support in times of personal difficulties; Beautiful little faces in song and laughter; Openly sharing our concerns and helping with the needs of others; God responding to our prayers.

No matter where you are in your life's journey, I invite you to explore our website and learn about Trinity and our mission to: Love God; Love Neighbor; and Change the World. Even better. Come visit us in Wheaton, IL sometime!

Peace,
Father Kevin Caruso
Rector

Giving Thanks For A Community Worth Sharing

picture of quoteOne of my favorite quotes is from Meister Eckhart, a Christian theologian, philosopher and mystic who lived in the 13th and 14th centuries. He says this: “If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is Thank You, it will be enough.” For obvious reasons (Thanksgiving!), this quote has been on my mind lately. It is a reminder of the incredible power of giving thanks. It is a reminder that giving thanks is not just an incidental part of our life of faith, it is central. The holiday season after Thanksgiving can feel like a runaway train crashing towards Christmas. Given this “runaway” feeling, it is particularly important for us to be mindful of the things we are thankful for. In this season of Advent, this season of preparing for Christ’s coming, I invite us to do more than give thanks on a single day. I invite us to make each day an opportunity to give thanks. I invite us to express our thanksgiving using both our voices and our actions.
