One Service ~ 9:00 a.m. ~ Sunday, May 19th

Meeting with Rev. Tim Hodapp, Canon for Congregations & Transitions

The start of any parish transition is a Clergy Compensation Capacity Analysis which is completed by the Episcopal Church of Connecticut (ECCT) staff of the Canon for Mission Finance and Operations. Trinity’s financial information has been requested and submitted. Rev. Tim Hodapp will meet with us on Sunday, May 19th after a 9:00 a.m. service to share feedback from the review. We will have ONE SERVICE on Sunday, May 19th at 9:00 a.m.

During this time at Trinity we will be blessed to welcome visiting priests as presiders and preachers for our 8:00 am and 10 am services. In order for you to get to know a bit about them before they arrive on Sunday, please take the time to read their biographies.

Please Welcome the Rev. Zebulun Treloar


Trinity is delighted to welcome The Reverend Zebulun (Zeb) Treloar as today’s presider and preacher. Zeb will be with us on the first Sunday of each month through June. He was ordained to the priesthood in the Diocese of Iowa in 2019, becoming the first openly transgender priest ordained in the Diocese. He has served children, youth, college students, and elders in ministry roles in both Iowa and Kentucky. His wife, Jamie, began her transition in 2022, and they chose to move to a state with legal protections for transgender people as waves of anti-transgender legislation have been introduced and passed in state houses across the nation. They arrived in Connecticut in September 2023, moving into an apartment in Manchester. Zeb is enjoying supply work and is an associate of St. Peter's Church, South Windsor. He will begin a Master of Social Work program at Springfield College in the fall.

Property Team Work Day


The Property Team is planning a work day on Saturday morning, May 4th to spruce up the grounds. There is plenty of work to be done after the winter, so anyone is welcome to come and lend a hand in this effort. Refreshments will be provided. We will work from 9:00 to 12:00. Thank you for considering participating in this ministry.


A message from Immanuel Congregational Church –

A GHIAA Partner


To celebrate Immanuel Congregational Church’s 200th Anniversary this year, we have invited renowned civil rights leader, Bishop William Barber II, to speak on Sunday, May 5th at 3pm. Bishop Barber is a preacher, social activist, author and sought-after public speaker who became nationally known for his leadership with the Moral Monday movement in North Carolina. He has recently begun a new phase of his work as the founding director of the Center for Public Theology & Public Policy at Yale Divinity School.


The event is free and open to all. We hope that our GHIAA partners will join us on May 5th for an afternoon of “Challenge and Hope”!

Women Together: a group that gathers weekly to explore our Christian faith and practice through book discussion, prayer and fellowship. We will meet on Tuesdays from 2:00 to 3:15pm in the reception room at St. John’s (679 Farmington Avenue, West Hartford, CT).

On Tuesday May 7, 2024 we will begin discussing Saint Francis of Assisi Brother of Creation by Mirabai Starr . "Saint Francis of Assisi is an essential devotional reader for building your personal connection to the spirit of this modest Italian sage. Through stories, prayers, and his own writings, you are invited to share in Francis's nourishing devotion to God, and in his profound compassion toward all living things."

We will start by reading the Forward and the first Chapter. Don’t worry if you haven’t received your book yet, just come and enjoy the conversation.

The books we choose are usually available at libraries, amazon.com and other booksellers. WT has been attended by women from St. John’s, Trinity, St. James and St. Monica’s. Please contact Cathy Rowe crowedy@yahoo.com if you would like additional information.

Cystic Fibrosis Walk on May 18, 2024

Hello all! Kate and Drew Smith’s Cystic Fibrosis walk will again be held at Riverfront Park, Glastonbury, on Saturday, May 18th, 10 am.


Our granddaughter Sarah was born 14 years ago with Cystic Fibrosis and is doing quite well now. She has started taking the new drug Trikafta, has grown several inches and 2024 has a purple streak in her hair!


Team Strolling for Sarah does its annual walk, about 3 miles or one hour, to support the Great Strides program which raises research dollars for this genetic lung and digestion disease. The new drug Trikafta treats some of the causes for her illness and not just the symptoms.


If you cannot walk we hope you will support us at our website http://fightcf.cff.org/goto/Kate-Smith

or mail us at1898: 106 Vista Way Bloomfield, CT 06002.

Thanks so much, Kate and Drew Smith

Trinity Book Club

Trinity's Book Group will gather on Friday, May 31st to discuss Up Home: One Girl's Journey by Ruth J. Simmons. "Simmons’s evocative account of her remarkable trajectory from Jim Crow Texas, where she was the youngest of twelve children in a sharecropping family, to the presidencies of Smith College and Brown University shines with tenderness and dignity.” All are welcome to attend! The meeting will be hosted by Martha Freimuth at her home; please let her know if you plan to attend. (lems.cove@yahoo.com; 860-605-0703) It promises to be an evening of sparkling conversation and delectable treats!
