When people ask what churches do, the usual responses include worship and study, which encompass the particular theological flavor of the parish, as well as the outreach projects and programs that are offered, which reflect the church in action. However, no church parish is complete unless the people enjoy being together. Fellowship is central to what defines us and binds us in bonds of affection. Christ calls us to love one another; but when all this works properly, it results in people being able to actually like each other. We at Trinity believe that a healthy parish is one where the people enjoy each other, and we hope you will find this to be the case, and particularly that you will feel welcomed to join us.
Below are upcoming events specifically with Trinity Episcopal Church. If you are interested in seeing some of the events from our community and other neighboring churches, click-here.

Eucharistic Adoration Mondays
From our prayer, we act. Join us for this new opportunity for prayer each week before the Blessed Sacrament and individual confessions starting Monday – January 9th. “The Book of Common Prayer (p.857) tells us that the adoration of God in prayer is “the lifting up of heart and mind to God, asking nothing but to enjoy God’s presence.” The practice of Eucharistic Adoration is the spiritual exercise of adoring the Real Presence of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. The intention of such a devotion is to allow the faithful to be connected with an awareness of the gift of Christ’s sacramental presence and experience a spiritual communion with Him. Private Eucharistic Adoration involves prayer at the site where the Sacrament of the Altar is reserved. In some places, there is also the opportunity for corporate acts of Adoration through Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament and Eucharistic Exposition.
There is a long-standing practice of corporate Eucharistic Adoration in the English, Roman, and Orthodox expressions of the faith. Devotions to Christ in the Blessed Sacrament outside of the Eucharistic celebration have been documented as early as the 8th century. In the Church of England, Father John Mason Neale (1818-1866) revived interest in Eucharistic Adoration among Anglicans when he made it a part of the devotional life of the nuns of the Society of Saint Margaret. Father Neale saw Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament and Eucharistic Exposition as the logical devotional expression of the Church Catholic’s understanding of the Real Presence. The adoration of our Lord Jesus Christ’s presence in the Sacrament of the Altar is not the stuff of superstition and false doctrine. It is for us a legacy and inheritance of the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church and its faith in the Real Presence of the living Lord in the Holy Eucharist.” – The Church of the Good Shepherd #episcopalian #anglocatholic #christian
