From the Rector

Around 20 Trinity folk gathered after worship last Sunday for brunch at the Borderline Restaurant! It was great to see so many folks sharing a meal, laughing, and chatting together.

We are planning more of these monthly gatherings. The next will be Sunday, June 30th, so make your plans to join us now.

In fact, follow below to see all the other opportunities to gather, both around the diocese, and with other Trinity parishioners over the summer.

Take advantages of these events to stay connected, have fun, and keep our church vital as we await our building's restoration and renovation.
