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

For 2020, the Outreach commission is trying a new way of getting input from the Parish about which charities receive money from Trinity. With that in mind, please consider submitting a proposal for an organization which you feel would benefit from our support in the coming year. Please note that the plan for the coming year is that Outreach will continue to support our outreach partners, such as the Diocese of Renk, People’s Resource Center, ESSE, Midwest Vets, etc., as it has done in the past. We are seeking to expand our community involvement with these additional proposals. Deadline for proposals for 2020 is January 15, 2020. Decisions will be made and requestor will be notified of the results by April 1, 2020.

Saturday Study Group

reflection of words old testament on book

The Saturday morning study group will begin a new topic on August 3. We will be using a resource entitled The Hebrew Scriptures in Judaism and Christianity. The Hebrew Scriptures, what Christians call the “Old Testament” and Jews call the “Bible,” are the basis of both Judaism and Christianity. In this study we will survey how this work of literature, through interpretation and re-interpretation, spawned two different belief systems. Topics to be surveyed include: canon and prophecy; exegesis and Midrash; Shabbat and Sunday; temple, synagogue, church; the Oral Torah and the Logos; sin and righteousness; messiah and redemption.
