Help Needed in the Memorial Garden

to prepare for the Dayton Lane Promenade

We would like to have the Memorial Garden weeded and

tidied up before the Dayton Lane Promenade on May 19th.

Are you able to help in the garden?

Do you have friends/family members who enjoy working in flower beds and would want to help with this?

Even just pulling a few weeds

after a Sunday morning service is a big help!

Please contact Mother Suzanne or the parish office if you are available to help, or just go into the garden and pull some weeds when you are able!

Lay Eucharistic Visitor (LEV)

Training Completed

Lay Eucharistic Visitors are parishioners who are trained to bring Eucharist to those who cannot attend worship services. Trinity now has five Lay Eucharistic Visitors who will begin taking Eucharistic to parishioners this coming Sunday. Those newly trained are Bridget Cornell, Jennifer Gattermeyer, Jackie Parrish, Sue Samoviski, and Gayle Sisson. Two others, Kim Jewett and Ginny Woods will be trained in the next several weeks.

Congratulations Confirmands!

This Saturday, May 11th, two of Trinity's parishioners, Jennae Thompson and Gayle Sisson, will be confirmed as Episcopalians at the diocese regional confirmation at the Procter Center.

Congratulations to Jennae and Gayle!

Mother Suzanne will be on Sabbatical

May 23rd - September 10th

It is time for Mother Suzanne to take a sabbatical this year.

She is also taking two weeks of vacation and two weeks of education with the sabbatical and will be gone a total of 16 weeks. Her last day at work will be Wednesday, May 22nd and her first day back will be September 10th.

Diocese guidelines provide for a sabbatical every five to six for priests, and it is also included in Mother Suzanne's contract with Trinity as Rector. She was actually supposed to take the sabbatical last summer, but pushed it off until 2024 due to Trinity's 200th anniversary year events.

While Mother Suzanne is gone, we will have some very familiar faces worshipping with us as the Rev. Kip Colegrove will be our primary supply priest, serving for 10 of the Sundays,

with the Rev. Pam Gaylor serving 3 Sundays,

the Rev. Canon Bill Scrivener serving 2 Sundays,

and the Rev. Canon Michael Spencer serving 1 Sunday.

The Rev. Pam Gaylor and the Rev. Kip Colegrove will handle most of the pastoral care during this time.


Here, in her own words, is what

Mother Suzanne will be doing during her sabbatical:


Even before my illness I was aware that I was burning the candle at both ends. I had put off my sabbatical for a year due to Trinity's 200th anniversary, and so was especially looking forward to to a sabbatical in 2024. The original plan was for lots and lots of travel, interspersed with short times at home to get caught up with small and large home tasks I had put off - a sabbatical of travel and tasking. My long stint with pneumonia changed that! Now the plan is lots and lots of rest at home interspersed with some travel.

My stamina is not quite fully back, so I am looking forward to lots and lots of lazy days at home, and much less travel.

The travel that did not get cancelled is my trip to Europe to take an Anabaptist history tour. This is something I have been looking forward to for years and had already made a deposit on before my illness. As some of you know my heritage is Lancaster County Pennsylvania Dutch and I trace my genealogy back to the European Anabaptist martyrs during the time of the Reformation (1517-1648). One of my tenth grandfathers, Hans Landis, was the last Anabaptist martyr (1614), and we will be visiting the site of his death and his home. The Anabaptists, who became today's Mennonites, Amish, and Brethren took their reforms of faith much further than Martin Luther, believing in adult "believer's" baptism (re-baptizing), strict pacifism, no service in the military or government, and serious adherence to Jesus' commands of the Sermon on the Mount in the Gospel of Matthew. So, their movement became known as the Radical Reformation. Their beliefs were considered heretical and a threat to stability and so they were ostracized, imprisoned, and killed for their their faith by the Lutheran and Reformed churches and other state churches. They began taking refuge in Pennsylvania in the early 1700's, taking advantage of William Penn's "Holy Experiment" of supporting freedom of religion, with no imposition of religious standards or requirements by the government. Besides learning more about my 10th grandfather, Hans Landis, who gave his life for his faith, I am looking forward to praying in the very caves where my ancestors peacefully gathered for worship while hiding from their pursuers. When I return from my sabbatical, I will have lots to share with you from this religious pilgrimage to the Netherlands, Germany, and Switzerland!

Later in the summer, I hope to travel to Dallas, Texas, to visit my 88 year-old sister, to share about my travels to our mother- and fatherlands. And sometime I hope to travel to Owego, New York, to see my 97 year-old first mother-in-law, and to New York City, to see my son, Jesse. This may still seem like a lot of travel, but believe me, I had a lot more planned!

And of course! I will be spending lots of time with Tortellini, my naked cat!

Both Bishop Smith and Bishop Uffelman White were very pleased when I told them about my sabbatical plans and the amount of rest-time I included. I look forward to coming back rested and refreshed with lots of new energy and insights for our ministry together.

~~ Mother Suzanne

O Lord our God, all this abundance

that we have provided for building you a house

for your holy name

comes from your hand and is all your own.

1 Chronicles 29:17

Thank you for building God's house at Trinity

with your financial offerings, prayers, ministries,

hospitality, and fellowship.

Sign Up to Volunteer for Trinity's Open House During the Dayton Lane Promenade

The Dayton Lane Promenade will be held from 1-5 PM on Sunday, May 19th. Trinity will have an "open house" during this time, as we have done in years past.

We need volunteers to join in this wonderful opportunity

to introduce Trinity to the wider community.

Help is needed with providing light refreshments, and serving as "tour guides" for the Sanctuary, Memorial Room, and Memorial Garden. We will provide historic information to visitors about

the building, stained glass windows, lychgate, and gardens.

The last time Trinity was a part of this, we had

over 100 people visit our church!


Here is information from the Dayton Lane Historic Area, Inc.

about the overall event:

Experience a breathtaking journey back in time to the early 1900s and relive the opulent lifestyle of Hamilton's industrial barons at the Dayton Lane May Promenade. Immerse yourself in the magnificent charm of more than 10 historic homes on Dayton Street and Campbell Avenue, adorned with exquisite architecture and timeless beauty. Be transported to a bygone era with the sound of live music, gentlemen dressed in dapper attire, riding old-fashioned bicycles, and the sight of horse-drawn carriages adding to the grandeur of the surroundings. It's an unforgettable experience that will leave you with a newfound appreciation for the rich history and culture of Hamilton.

Sign Up to Volunteer at Hamilton PRIDE

This year's Hamilton PRIDE event will take place on Saturday, June 1st, in Marcum Park.

Once again there will be a booth representing the Episcopal Church. This booth will be shared by Trinity Hamilton, St. Anne West Chester, Holy Trinity Oxford, and Holy Spirit Forest Park.

As the Episcopal Church in Hamilton,

we hope to have parishioners from Trinity

at the booth for the entire day,

from setup to teardown.

If you will be helping at the booth,

please sign up for time slots on the signup sheet in the Memorial Room

or contact Mother Suzanne.

We also expect there to be protesters present

as they were last year.

This year there will be counter-protester training provided by the Affirming Churches Group.

If you would like to be involved in that training,

please let Mother Suzanne know by May 13th

or sign up for this training also in the Memorial Room.

This training will take place on

Tuesday, May 28th, at 7:00 PM, at Marcum Park.

You must sign up for this training by May 13th.

Looking For Help with

Online Compline and A Word and A Prayer

Trinity has a robust online presence

with twice daily worship on Facebook Live

led by parishioners

As the summer approaches and lives change,

we are looking for new lay leadership to help with this ministry.

What is involved?

For Compline: Lead the Order for Compline on page 127 of the Book of Common Prayer on Facebook Live at 8:30 PM, on one, two, or three nights a week. We are especially looking for new leaders for Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:30 PM, but other nights may also be available. The Order for Compline is a simple short set of prayers and Scripture reading before bedtime lasting about 10 minutes. Everything you need to do is easily laid out in the Prayer Book, and Mother Suzanne will provide some training.

For a Word and a Prayer: A Word and a Prayer was started during the Covid pandemic as a way to keep us connected and address what was going on. It has continued as a daily 9:30 AM reflection given by several parishioners and Mother Suzanne. The reflection does not need to be complicated. It can be as simple as sharing a psalm, canticle, hymn, or piece of Scripture, reflecting a bit on what it means to you, and then ending with a prayer -- the Lord's Prayer, one from the Prayer Book, or one you compose. The whole thing can be as short or long as you make it. We are especially looking for new leaders for Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, but other mornings may also be available. Mother Suzanne can talk to you further about what is involved.

Note: The leaders step in for one another

when we have a scheduling conflict.

This ministry of worship continues

to be an important means of building fellowship between parishioners and evangelism to the wider community.

Not sure about a long-term commitment?

Think about trying it out for the summer.

Contact Mother Suzanne if you have questions or are interested

at 513-869-8694 or

Financial Snapshot

We will again begin sharing monthly details about Trinity's finances. We hope to keep you informed on a more regular basis on where we stand with meeting our financial obligations and managing our current deficit.

Income March Actual: $ 9,284

Income Budgeted Monthly: $ 13,621

Income Budgeted YTD: $ 74,347

The Financial Committee and the Vestry are examining ways to address our deficit and will be making some decisions at the May Vestry Meeting on Tuesday, May 21. We will keep you informed about those decisions and how they affect our financial picture. Remember that figures reported above are from the end of March.

Please add this prayer

for the financial health of Trinity,

to your daily devotions:

Gracious God and Father of all, we know that all comes from you and that you call us to build communities of faith and love in your name. At Trinity, you have given us beautiful facilities for worship and ministry, and have raised up ministries that build up our faith and serve the wider community. We pray that you will make clear to us ways to stabilize our parish finances so that we may continue the good work you have begun in us. We ask this in the name of Christ, the one who gives us abundant life. Amen.

Spencer Pugh Death and

Funeral Arrangements

*We wanted to share this sad news from the diocese with everyone at Trinity as many of you may remember Spencer. He had preached several times at Trinity as a licensed lay preacher, and also helped to lead some of our stewardship planning and campaigns. He will be greatly missed. Please keep his family in your prayers.

From the Diocese of Southern Ohio

April 17, 2024

In sure and certain hope of the resurrection to eternal life, we write to share the sad news that Spencer Pugh, a faithful leader in both our diocese and the wider Episcopal Church, died suddenly on Wednesday while on pilgrimage in Spain.

"Spencer was devoted to the Diocese of Southern Ohio and the Episcopal Church, and his loss will be felt deeply across the entire church. He served faithfully in many ways for many years, particularly as the chair of our Commission on Ministry, as a licensed lay preacher, and as a Stephen Ministry Leader," Bishop White said. "Please pray for his wife, Bev, and their children and grandchildren; for the entire Pugh family; and for all who were touched by Spencer's ministry."

Click Here to read Spencer's obituary.

Funeral arrangements are as follows:

Visiting hours will be on Friday, May 24 from 5 to 7 p.m. at St. Anne Episcopal Church, 6461 Tylersville Rd, West Chester, OH 45069. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 25, also at St. Anne. The Rt. Rev. Kristin Uffelman White, Bishop of the Diocese of Southern Ohio, will preside and the Rev. Phil Hooper, Rector of St. Anne, will preach. The service will be streamed via a link on the church's website: Interment will take place at a later date.

Into your hands, O merciful Savior, we commend your servant Spencer. Acknowledge, we humbly beseech you, a sheep of your own fold, a lamb of your own flock, a sinner of your own redeeming. Receive him into the arms of your mercy, into the blessed rest of everlasting peace, and into the glorious company of the saints in light. Amen. (Book of Common Prayer, pg. 465)

Nominees for the 28th Presiding Bishop

of The Episcopal Church

The Episcopal Church’s next presiding bishop will be chosen in June from a slate of five nominees

Click the link below to read more about each candidate and to view short videos each candidate was asked to create discussing a biblical image or metaphor that resonates with this moment in the life of the church and the role of the presiding bishop.

View each nominee’s videos on the General Convention Office website.

The Rt. Rev J. Scott Barker, 60, has led the Omaha-based Diocese of Nebraska since 2011. The diocese’s 53 worshipping communities span the full state, where Barker was born and raised. A graduate of Berkeley Divinity School at Yale, Barker was ordained to the priesthood in 1992 and served for 10 years in Omaha and 10 more years in the Diocese of New York before returning to Nebraska as bishop.

The Rt. Rev. Daniel G.P Gutiérrez, 59, has led the Philadelphia-based Diocese of Pennsylvania since 2016. It is one of five dioceses in the state. A native of New Mexico, Gutiérrez earned a diocesan certificate in Anglican Studies through the Trinity School for Ministry and has a master’s degree in theological studies from St. Norbert College. He was ordained to the priesthood in 2008 in the Albuquerque-based Diocese of the Rio Grande and served there as canon to the ordinary, chief operating officer and chief of staff before he was elected bishop of Pennsylvania.

The Rt. Rev. Sean Rowe, 49, has led the Erie-based Diocese of Northwestern Pennsylvania since 2007, and he also serves as bishop provisional of the Diocese of Western New York through a partnership the dioceses established in 2019. He previously served as bishop provisional of the Diocese of Bethlehem from 2014 to 2018. Originally from western Pennsylvania, Rowe is a Virginia Theological Seminary graduate and was ordained to the priesthood in 2000 in Northwestern Pennsylvania, where he served in congregational ministry until his election as bishop. He currently serves as parliamentarian of the House of Bishops and Executive Council.

The Rt. Rev. Robert Wright, 60, has led the Diocese of Atlanta since 2012. The diocese, based in Georgia’s capital city, has 120 worshipping communities across the northern half of the state. A Navy veteran and graduate of Virginia Theological Seminary, Wright was ordained to the priesthood in 1999 in the Diocese of New York. At the time of his election as bishop, he had served the previous 10 years as rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Atlanta. Since 2020, he also has hosted the popular podcast “For People” on faith and life.

The Rt. Rev. Dr. DeDe Duncan-Probe, 61, has led the Syracuse-based Diocese of Central New York since 2016. The nearly 80 congregations in the diocese span from the Canadian border to the Pennsylvania state line. After a career in education and business, Duncan-Probe earned a Master of Divinity degree from The General Theological Seminary in New York and was ordained to the priesthood in 2004 in the Diocese of El Camino Real in central California. She also holds a doctorate in theology from the Graduate Theological Foundation, completed at Oxford University, and served as an adjunct faculty member at Virginia Theological Seminary before her consecration as bishop.

These candidates will be presented for election at the 81st General Convention, which convenes June 23-28 in Louisville, Kentucky. The nominees’ names will be formally submitted June 25 during a joint session of the House of Bishops and House of Deputies. On June 26, the bishops will elect, and deputies will be asked to confirm, the church’s 28th presiding bishop, who will succeed Presiding Bishop Michael Curry beginning Nov. 1.

General Convention, the triennial churchwide gathering, splits its authority between the House of Bishops and House of Deputies, and each house has a distinct role in the selection of a new presiding bishop. In Louisville, the House of Bishops will gather in a closed session June 26 at Christ Church Cathedral for the election and then ask the House of Deputies to vote to confirm the result.

The 28th presiding bishop is scheduled to take office on Nov. 1, and an installation is scheduled for Nov. 2 at Washington National Cathedral, the traditional seat of the presiding bishop. When the nominating committee released its presiding bishop profile in March 2023, it identified via survey several qualities needed in “a presiding bishop for our time.” Among the most important characteristics are strong leadership, a love of communicating and faithfulness.

The committee also cited faithfulness as a quality frequently identified by survey respondents and interviewees as essential in a presiding bishop. “The next presiding bishop should be one who is deeply grounded in their faith and hope in Christ and steadfastly committed to the living tradition of The Episcopal Church. They should be fully authentic and a person of palpable integrity, always ready to offer ‘an accounting for the hope that is in [them]’” the committee said, quoting 1 Peter.

A history and timeline of Episcopal Church presiding bishops

Curry was elected in 2015 as the church’s first Black presiding bishop. Before him, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, elected in 2006, was the church’s first female presiding bishop. Her predecessor, Presiding Bishop Frank Griswold, was the first to serve a nine-year term, after the church shortened the presiding bishop’s term from 12 years.

The presiding bishop has a range of responsibilities, as outlined by The Episcopal Church Constitution and Canons. Those include presiding over the House of Bishops, chairing Executive Council, visiting every Episcopal diocese, participating in the ordination and consecration of bishops, receiving and responding to disciplinary complaints against bishops, making appointments to the church’s interim bodies, and “developing policies and strategies for the church and speaking for the church on the policies, strategies and programs of General Convention.”

There are few canonical requirements for presiding bishop candidates. They must be members of the House of Bishops and cannot yet have reached the church’s mandatory retirement age of 72. Nothing prohibits the election of a presiding bishop who would turn 72 during the nine-year term, though historically nominees have been able to complete the full nine years.

“We felt the Holy Spirit’s presence during this process and are prayerfully thankful for the guidance we received,” the Rev. Maureen-Elizabeth Hagan, a deacon on the committee who chairs its nominations subcommittee, said in the April 2 news release.

Volunteer for or Attend

the General Convention

of the Episcopal Church

in Louisville, Kentucky

June 23-28

What is General Convention?

General Convention is a tri-annual meeting of all the Bishops of the Episcopal Church and representative laity and clergy from every diocese of the Episcopal Church. They meet to do the business of the National Church (although we do have diocese in Europe, South and Central America, and the Pacific, and they of course attend too.) It's not often that the General Convention meets so geographically close to us. So, hopefully some of you will take advantage of attending, at least for a day, to see how the governance of the Episcopal Church works at this high level. What is interesting is how the two Houses of Convention, the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies (laity and clergy) function much like the House of Representatives and Senate of the US Government. For any resolutions to pass they must be passed by both Houses.

This year's General Convention will be especially exciting because the Convention will be electing a new Presiding Bishop, who will replace the current Presiding Bishop, The Right Reverend Michael Curry, and serve for nine years.

The Episcopal Church is looking for volunteers to help with the 81st General Convention from June 23 to 28 in Louisville, Kentucky. There are opportunities available for individuals of all abilities. Volunteer positions generally fall into one of three categories: Clerical, Logistics, or Hospitality.
