Our Leadership

The Rev. Kevin Caruso


My name is Kevin Caruso. I am blessed to serve as the rector of a thriving congregation where we are striving to faithfully Love God, Love Neighbor, and Change the World. Moreover, I believe that our ability to Love is rooted in our relationships to God, one another, ourselves, and the world. Consequently, I also believe that getting to know the people who find their way to Trinity is one of the most important things I do. To that end, If you would find it meaningful to spend some time visiting, please be in touch! I would be happy to meet you somewhere for coffee, at Trinity, in your home, or even at your office. You can e-mail me or call the office at 630-665-1101.
