Faith Is Never Cancelled

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I miss you!!! It is hard to believe we haven't been together for in-person worship for weeks... But that being said, I am blown away by the ways you are finding to be Christ's heart and hands in the world. Keep it up... Keep looking for ways to support one another... Keep looking for ways to support the most vulnerable... Keep washing your hands... Keep up the practices around social isolation because it is an act of Love... Keep praying for strength and wisdom in the weeks ahead... If you have any particular needs you need help with, please let me know! This email address is being protected from spambots.

Peace,

Kevin

Re-Entry Plans

New information has come out about trends in infection rates in Illinois and also about how the virus can be spread. With those concerns in mind, we have begun to have small, outdoor services starting at 12:00 pm noon in the West St. courtyard. Attendance is limited to 20 people; reservations are required and the link may be found in parish notes. Parishioners are asked to bring their own folding chairs, wear face masks, and adhere to 6 ft. social distancing. Our goal is to keep the congregation as safe as possible while trying to meet the needs of those for whom in-person worship is important.

If you need assistance making a reservation to attend an outdoor service, see our FAQ Page or email Nancy Moore at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 630-668-2919.

Outdoor Eucharist FAQ

We hope the following will answer your questions about Outdoor Eucharist. If you have other questions to suggest, please enter them in our Contacts Form.

Is this the only service on Sunday?

No. Trinity will continue to run regular Zoom services on Saturday at 5pm and Sunday at 10am. Please visit our Services Schedule for all services. We look forward to you visiting!

Why does Trinity require Reservations for these services?

Your safety is our priority. Reservations permit Trinity planners to ensure social distancing during the service. Capacities may change to reflect State or local policies.

Is there a waitlist if all of the seats have been reserved?

Yes. Please keep in mind that Trinity will closely monitor the waitlist. You may not be notified until the day of the service that you have been moved from the waitlist to the active service.

Do I need to wear a mask?

Yes. Masks will be required to be worn by all worshippers.

Do I need to bring my own chair?

Yes. Please bring your own lawn chair. Trinity will not provide any chairs.

What happens during inclement weather?

Trinity will cancel the service. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.

Do I need to create an account with SignUpGenius to make a reservation?

No. You do not need to create an account. You are required to have an email account to change or cancel your reservation.

Why do I need an email address to make a reservation?

Your reservation confirmation will be emailed to you.

Do I reserve a seat for each member of my family or party that is attending?

Yes. Each person counts as one seat. For example a couple planning to attend should reserve two seats.

What happens if there are no more seats available on the day that I want to attend?

To maintain health and safety, Trinity must comply with capacity limits. You are encouraged to sign up for the waiting list or a future service if you are able.

How do I change or cancel my reservation?

There are two ways to edit your reservation: 1) Your confirmation email contains a link at the bottom that allows you to edit the reservation; or 2) You may return to the reservation site and select the link to change your sign up (located at the top of the reservations list). Select "I signed up without a SignUpGenius account" and enter the email address that you used to create the original reservation. Edit your reservation as required.

COVID-19 Response

Your health and safety is most important to us. Trinity is currently working on plans to allow worshipers and other members of the community to gather in a safe environment. This means that Trinity will not open its doors or operate at full capacility until the Clergy and planners have deemed our facilities safe - even if the State and Diocese allow the complete opening of buildings. Until then, we hope you will enjoy worshiping at Trinity online and join many of our activities that we also offer online. Please look for our online offerings on Facebook (@trinitywheaton), Twitter (@TrinityWheaton) and YouTube.
