New Ministry Opportunity

Trinity is currently seeking volunteers, during the weekly Prayers of the People, to ‘stand in the breach’ and lift to God in prayer the specific needs of our Trinity brothers and sisters, the church, and the world, that those prayers would come from the midst of the people. If you are interested in participating in this new ministry please contact John Redden at 614.402.8328 or

flowersAltar Decoration Memorials

If you would like to place a flower memorial or thanksgiving in the Sunday bulletin, contact Diane Donato in the Parish Office via email or at 221-5351.  A donation of $50 is suggested, but any reasonable amount will be accepted.  Only a few dates are spoken for currently. An album of altar decoration has begun online. Click this photo to see more.


Disposable Diapers are always in demand

Please don't forget our neighbors on the street. Candles, diapers, and new dry socks are essential for this time of year. We have many weekday requests for snacks and canned self-opening food items as well. Remember to save hotel toiletries from your travels. All donations are greatly appreciated.

ITGCoffee and Supplies: Thank you, thank you, thank you!  Because of your generosity we have plenty of coffee and juice boxes for the weeks ahead.  We don't have storage for any more right now!  We could use contributions of toiletries for our ITG friends, however, such as razors, toothpaste, toothbrushes, toilet paper, deodorant, disposable diapers, and handi-wipes.  We also can use paper plates, napkins, Styrofoam coffee cups, and plastic forks and spoons.  We buy these in bulk, but we also go through a LOT of them in a month!
Funding: Once again we received our grant from the Episcop0al Church Services Fund (ECSF), which Trinity will match.  If you want to make a monetary contribution  to ITG, indicate that on your check and give it to the church office, so that the matching fund can be credited, and you can as well!!
Come join us anytime at ITG...volunteers are always needed and welcome!
If you and your family would like to provide a meal, we have a few open dates left in the year, and would love to share the blessings of ITG with all!
