Camp Chicago - June 26


Camp Chicago is an amazing summer camp run by the Diocese of Chicago. For the Caruso children, one of the saddest things about the past two summers has been not being able to go. The camp is led by dedicated and passionate people who love helping kids have a truly incredible camp experience. Their goal, as audacious as it sounds, is to give their campers the best week of their entire year. Father Kevin has been a chaplain at Camp Chicago for a number of years. Prior to COVID, it was his joy and privilege to serve as a Camp Chaplain for one of the weeks each summer. In 2022, He will be attending the first session of camp 6/267/1 as a Chaplain and his kids are getting to go, as well . We are looking forward to another great year at camp. We hope you will consider joining the Carusos. They would love nothing more than to have a bunch of Trinity folk getting to go to camp together!

Trinity Design Group

We are currently embarking on creating a new design for our parlor. With a “soon to be” media hub connection available we will be able to more fully utilize this important space. From opportunities to view services when needed, one on one conferences for important events, youth and adult group activities, we want to make the space multifunctional. With access to media it will be an important space for learning, teaching and sharing. Please contact Kris Wilson at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Calling All Gardeners

This year, planting-wise, Trinity will be joining a growing movement of planting flowers, etc., native to Northern Illinois. And we’ll be transitioning to planting perennials rather than annuals. We’ve formed the Gardening Task Force to select plants and find sources for the selections. If you are interested in gardening and this new approach to choosing plants, don’t hesitate to email Bernie Ishmael, who has graciously agreed to organize the effort, or call (630)222-3050 and join the group.

Service Opportunities

There is an old saying that “many hands make light work”. In the context of our common life as a congregation, the corollary of this is “many volunteers make the task easier.” This is especially true of our worship services. There are many opportunities to participate in services as a worship leader:

  • Reader
  • Leading the Prayers of the People
  • Helping to distribute communion
  • Singing in the choir (and/or ringing bells)
  • Serving as an acolyte
  • Being an usher

Within some limits, these opportunities are not limited by age or other factors. Youth can help lead the prayers or read a lesson. Adults can serve as acolytes. We have youth who are ushers and have had both adults and youth who contribute to the music we all enjoy by singing in the vocal choir or playing bells in the bell choir.

At this time, as we are coming back together as a congregation to worship, we are in need of volunteers for all of these ministries. If you are interested in exploring an opportunity to participate in one or more of them, please email Deacon Jim, Deacon Brenda,  or This email address is being protected from spambots.
