Trinity Begins Alternate Services

Addressing a desire to provide liturgies beyond the traditional Sunday morning, we will be offering a number of events this winter and spring.  A monthly Evening Prayer service will be held on the 4th Sunday of each month (excluding March - Easter Day). We begin with a traditional Anglican Evensong on January 24.  The Trinity Choir will present anthems and service settings by Sowerby and Bairstow.  February and April will offer diverse services featuring jazz and folk music.  The season will conclude with a Festival Evensong on Trinity Sunday, May 22.
Weekday services of Night Prayer with Taizé Chant are also being planned for the season of Lent – more details to come.



@ 9:15am in the Parish Library

Jan. 24: COHHIO update

Deacon Douglas Argue, COHHIO (Coalition on Homelessness and Housing in Ohio) managing director, will give an update on their critical work advocating for a more just and humane  policy for at-risk Ohio citizens.


Jan. 31 & Feb. 7: Trinity’s Mutual Ministry Review

The Vestry, Wardens and Rector of Trinity Church recently took part in a Mutual Ministry Review, evaluating past events and processes at Trinity and more importantly looking with vision prayerfully toward the future.  Join Vestry members as they discuss the procedure and outcome of this enlightening project. This two-week discussion will serve as a prelude to the Annual Parish Meeting which will take place the following Sunday, February 14.

FlintTrinity to Assist Flint, MI

We all know of the water crisis in Flint. Trinity is partnering with local Episcopal parishes to help alleviate the burden to the residents there of obtaining safe drinking water. Moneys collected at Trinity Church for this will be sent to help with purchasing and distributing water for people in need. Contributions in any amount will be greatly appreciated - simply send a check made to Trinity Episcopal Church with "Flint Water" on the memo line. For further details speak with Kent Phillips.

The 198th Annual Parish Meeting - February 14

Rather than the usual last-Sunday-in-January spot, this year the Annual Meeting of Trinity Episcopal Church on Capitol Square will be held on Sunday, February 14, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. in the undercroft following a combined liturgy beginning at 9:30 a.m..  All people active in the parish—and those new to our life together—are encouraged to attend.

Ministry Team leaders and Vestry Nominees - the deadline for all annual reports and candidate bios and pictures is Monday, January 25. Please email pre-edited and proofread reports to Kevin Wines. Please write bios in 3rd person.

For peace in a war torn world, especially in Syria; Iraq and Iran. As we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ who was born to a refugee family in poverty long ago, may God give us renewed compassion and greater courage to offer hope and help to refugees and all in need.
