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

The CHALLENGE of Advent

picture of advent candles

The challenge of Advent is that this season is meant to be a time to prepare for the celebration of Christmas by calling us to SLOW DOWN as we consider what really matters. Yet, the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas seem to just get busier and busier. And perhaps ironically, this is also true at church! We have special programs and activites for this time of year. But here is the thing, we hope that the events Trinity offers during Advent are not just more things to do. We hope that these opportunities give you a reason to set aside time to step away from all the busyness and engage with the deeper questions at the heart of this season.

Advent Hymns

Trinity has added four Advent prayers sung by Charles Murphy, Trinity's Family Ministries Coordinator to Trinity's YouTube Channel. The hymns should sound familiar. We hope you enjoy them. And don't forget to give Charles a "Thumbs Up" while listening to the music!
