The search is over and Trinity is glad to announce that the Vestry, with the input from the congregation, has found a new Priest for Trinity!

The new Priest is Ann Markle and will come to Trinity on December 17th - which also happens to be our Sunday School Christmas Pageant!

Ann has been a Priest for almost 20 years serving as the main Rector at St. Raphael's in Crossvile Tenn, and has recently served as a supply Priest at St. Patrick's and St. Peter's.

New Hall Reservation policy now in effect (June 2016)

Since the completion of the under-croft in addition to the main parish hall, we have experienced a significant increase in hall reservations this past year. In order to ensure that all reservations can be accommodated there is a new policy going in effect for all reservations going forward.

All requests (Scouts, Non-profit organizations, clubs, individuals) must complete the Parish Hall Usage Agreement and submit it to the Office for confirmation and a reserved time and location.

Please print out the form (or request a form from the Office), fill it out, include all the required documents, and submit it to the Office. Once received the Office will review it and make the reservation as long as time, date, and the hall location is available.

Remember - No reservation will be made until the interested person/group has received an email from the Church Office stating the date, time, hall location that the reservation has been confirmed for.
