Message from Rev. Leslie St. Louis, Tuesday December 10, 2019

Dear Holy Trinity Members and Friends,

Many of you are aware that the vestry was to meet this evening. Thank you all for your heartfelt prayers, they have surrounded us and buoyed us as we have worked to discern the will of God. I am pleased to share with you that the vestry has decided to reverse the decision to close Holy Trinity at the end of December and will instead remain open and continuing operations as Holy Trinity Episcopal Church and Day School. The vestry believes that this is a faithful decision and in the best interest of both the church and our ministry Holy Trinity Episcopal Church School.

What’s next? The Holy Spirit is surely hovering over us at this time and just as Mary answered the Holy Spirit with the words “let it be,” so I think we make the same response. Let us for the moment, gather under the shadow of the Holy Spirit, come together to worship in these anticipatory days of Advent and rejoice in the birth of Emmanuel, God with us on Christmas Eve.

There will be time in the light of the New Year to determine the fullness of the path forward as the Body of Christ that is Holy Trinity Episcopal Church and School. For now let us rejoice and bask in the love of our God who remains with us….always.

In Christ,

Rev. Leslie

Message from our Rector

Greetings in the name of Christ.  I imagine if you have found this website, it’s because you are looking for something.  Perhaps you are searching for a new church home, for a community within which to explore your understanding of God, and how God is moving in your life.

Recently, I traveled to South Africa and while exploring the surrounds of Cape Town I was befriended by a man named Gerald.  One day while we were driving I said to Gerald, “Gerald, it is so windy here!”  He smiled and said “Ah yes, at this time of year it is very windy.”  He was quiet for a moment or two, surveying me from his rear view mirror before continuing.  “I don’t like the wind very much, it causes a restlessness, a longing for something but you don’t know what it is.”

“Ahhhh….yes!" I said, "like the longing people have for Christ!” In that very moment Gerald and I became a community of Christians, seeking to understand the God who is in the midst of us.  It is the quest for all of us, to find a way to understand the God who wrote his words deep inside our hearts at the moment of our creation and who calls us to explore and express our understanding of those words in the context of community.

I am thrilled that your restlessness has brought you here, and I hope it will carry you along a path that leads you to worship with us, question with us, be restless for God with us.  
Please join us for Sunday morning services at 8AM  or 10:30 AM. If you’re not quite ready for a Sunday morning experience or your schedule doesn’t permit, come and join us on Wednesdays at 10:15AM.
All church events can also be found on the Holy Trinity Calendar.
