Trinity welcomes our new Seminarian Scott Steiner

SteinerDear Members of Trinity,
My name is Scott Steiner and I am honored to be your seminarian intern for the 2015-2016 school year.  I will also be around this summer, especially on Sundays.
I am a Candidate for Holy Orders in the Diocese of Michigan and will be going into my senior year at Bexley Seabury Seminary. 
My wife (Katie) and I were married in August of 2004 and we have two children (Rachel, age 5 and Collin, age 3).  Katie and I both grew up in southeast Michigan. We lived there until I started seminary.  Katie is a physical therapist, though she presently is a stay-at-home mom.  Prior to entering seminary I worked as a registered nurse, first in the emergency department and then in hospice & palliative care.  I am a sports fan, and have a particular interest in baseball and automotive racing.
My family and I look forward to being a part of the Trinity family. 
See you soon.
~ Scott Steiner

Fund-raiser: Organ Stop Drawknobs

With the recent repairs to the Casavant organ console, all of the drawknobs were replaced. Commonly called "Stops," these are the triggers for all the different sounds created by the instrument. Each is labeled describing the sound or function of each stop. (e.g. "Chimes" pictured here) A complete list of the labels is here.
We've converted them into keychains and are making them available for purchase, asking $25 each in this fund-raising project. Please contact Kevin Wines to place a request. First-come-first-served for each stop. Key chains will be available for pickup on Sundays.
