December 6, 2023 from 8:30 a.m. to noon
Join us for a morning of quiet reflection and prayer this Advent season. We will be lead in scripture, reflection and prayer by the Rev. Todd S. McDowell. Fr. Todd will guide us in the practice of Ignatian contemplation using Scripture and images from the Holy Land. “Ignatian contemplation is a particular type of contemplation in which one uses one’s imagination to place oneself in a scripture scene. In this type of prayer, one uses the imagination to employ all five senses to enter the scene.” Register here.
Weekly on Thursday Nights
A weekly opportunity to come together as a parish family on Thursday evenings for a beautiful choral evensong service, followed by a delicious dinner, and formation offerings for the whole family. Many find that it is just what they need to re-center themselves in the midst of the busyness of life, get together in Christian community, and grow in faith. Come for the whole time or for whatever parts you can make -- and pray, eat, and grow together in faith.
Saturday, December 9th
We will have our next service day on Saturday, December 9th from 8:00 a.m. to noon. All experience levels are welcome! Childcare is available at the church upon request. Please email Fr. Nicholas with questions, and sign up online with Habitat for Humanity.

Our Baker’s Dozen crew have baked over 500 cookies for everyone to decorate and take home. Of course, the children have a wonderful time decorating and licking their fingers, our youth meet the challenge of decorating blindfolded, and even the adults enjoy this holiday tradition at Trinity. Following the cookie decorating, the children will gather to paint their next piece for their creches. Come and paint your piece and join us for the Blessing of the Creche on Christmas Eve at 4:00 p.m.
Saturday, December 16th at 5:00 p.m.
