Holy Trinity parishioners value and understand the centrality of being Christ’s hands in the world. We value expressing a compassionate Episcopal voice and presence both within the parish and in the larger community.

 

Mission Commission

Holy Trinity has had a large and diverse outreach program that has served and continues to serve those in need in both the local sphere, through the food bank, building habitat houses, literacy outreach, and other community ministries, as well as ministry across the state and beyond our own borders. We have also had a very active participation in diocesan ministries such as Sawyerville Day Camp and an annual medical mission with the Church in Haiti.  Funding for this work and support of other good works comes from budgetary support as well as generous donations that are made to the outreach fund by individuals and through fundraising efforts.

We recently participated in a parish wide Warm Winter Accessories drive where families were given the opportunity to purchase hats, scarves, mittens, chap stick, and other cold weather accessories to help out children in our community who were in need.  This project happened through the imagination, compassion, and personal relationships of a parishioner; if you have ideas and connections for how we might serve our local community in the love of Christ, please talk to Jonathan or come to our next Mission Commission meeting on February 7 at 5:30 p.m. in the parish hall.  If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact Jonathan Chesney at jonathan@holytrinitychurch.info.
