Trinity Sunday 2019

Here are some photos — and the homily — from Trinity Sunday 2019. Trinity Lime Rock celebrates Trinity Sunday as our official birthday as a parish. This was a busy birthday!

Just a few notes on the photos. Thanks to Linda Lloyd for the photo of Jane Tuttle. Jane was celebrating her 90+ birthday by riding in a Maserati. She’s our resident parishioner in North Carolina. As well, thanks to Allen Berrien for the photo of Fred Shay of Stained Glass Resources. His firm that is repairing out altar window. Following that, The Berkshire Children’s Chorus is pictured in their Spring Concert at Hevreh of Southern Berkshire, in Great Barrington. (Can you spot the three Trinity young people?)

We’re trying something new this week: including the homily with the photos, all on one post! Without further ado, here is Pastor Heidi’s brief homily (brief to allow time for Fred to talk to us and still get everyone to the picnic!

Trinity Times for May 2019

Here’s your Trinity Times for May 2019! As you know, the Trinity Times is the long-running newsletter of Trinity Church in Lime Rock. (The earliest edition we have seen of it dates from the 1950, and was produced by mimeograph, so we’ve come a long way!)

You can download your copy here, or you can pick up a copy at Trinity. In any event, do read and enjoy it!

Photos from March 3

Here are some photos from March 3, 2019 at Trinity Lime Rock. It was the Last Sunday of Epiphany, and thus, the last Sunday before Ash Wednesday, when Lent begins. At Trinity, we celebrate this Sunday as Chocolate Sunday — and the proceeds will go to purchase a new Fair Linen for the altar.

Enjoy the pictures!

You are always welcome at Trinity Lime Rock!

Trinity Times for February 2019

February may be the shortest month, and it may not have any major Feasts on the liturgical calendar, but at Trinity it is one of the busier ones. Have a look at the Trinity Times for February 2019 to see what is happening this month — and what will be happening in months to come!

Here’s our new Vestry!

Photos from January 20

In view of the weather, it’s a little bit of a surprise that we actually have photos from January 20 to offer here. However, Trinity Lime Rock has a pretty stalwart congregation!

The weather was absolutely miserable, and the roads were somewhere between poor and terrible due to the snow and ice. As a result, the 10:30 AM service opened with a congregation that was, uummm, sparse. However, latecomers drifted in and things got a lot better as the day went on.

And we held our Annual Meeting and pot luck lunch as scheduled.

Annual Report for 2018

We are very happy to bring you Trinity Lime Rock’s Annual Report for 2018!

For several years now, we have been publishing this document online in advance of the Annual Meeting. This serves more than one purpose. First, it saves a whole bunch of trees! We are not idle at Trinity, and trying to summarize everything we have done for a year in a single document makes for a thick document. (Along with the trees, think of how much it saves on copier expense!). Secondly, and most importantly, it lets everyone in the parish prepare for the annual meeting ahead of time. You can read the report from cover to cover at your leisure and not have to speed read during the early parts of the annual meeting. You can bring it with you to the meeting on your phone or tablet and refer to it as you wish.

The financials will be distributed (on paper) at the Annual Meeting, so they are not included in this report.

To download the Annual Report for 2018 now, simply click the download button.

Thanks to Alexis Dorf, who pulls the whole thing together!!
