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.

Welcome Kathryn Lees

Kathryn comes to Trinity as our transitional part-time Office Administrator. Her office hours are Mondays, 9 am – 3:00 pm, and Tuesdays and Thursdays, 8:30 am – 3:30 pm. She will provide administrative support to clergy, vestry, other committees, and parish-wide events. Kathryn will also maintain a functional system of communication with the parish. Please stop by and give her the Trinity welcome!

Memorial Service for Ruby Grant

Trinity Church notes the passing of Ruby Grant, a former and faithful member of the congregation. Our sympathy and prayers are with her family and friends. A memorial service for Ruby will be held at Trinity Church on Saturday April 27th at 11 am. All are welcome to attend.

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”!

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!
