Rota for remainder of 2nd Quarter

In accordance with the instructions of both the Bishop of Connecticut and the Governor of Connecticut, Trinity will be worshiping online until at least through the end of the second quarter and most likely well beyond that.

Here is the rota to cover the remainder of the 2nd quarter  — and many thanks to the parishioners who are making this transition into the age of  virtual worship!  A third quarter rota will be issued a week or so before the quarter begins.

Thanks to all who serve!

Photos from June 29 and 30

Here are some photos from June 29 and 30 at Trinity Lime Rock! The usual photographer was missing in action, so these are graciously contributed by the Rev. Heidi Truax and by Allen Berrien.

Major events of the weekend included a baptism at the Latino Mass Saturday evening and an unscheduled power outage that required some improvisation on Sunday morning.

Also, here’s a late addition. You may know that Trinity has been developing a group of parishioners who have been training as lay preachers. These folks preach when we have Morning Prayer and at other times during the year. One such time was last Sunday, and Roy Bickley preached. Here is his sermon:

June 23, 2019

Here are a few photos and the sermon from Sunday, June 23, 2019 at Trinity Lime Rock.

A few explanatory words: it was June, and two of our steadfast young people have graduated from high school and are off to college. In their honor, the first photo shown is that of Eleanore and Helen nearly ten years ago, right here at Trinity. To them both: Thanks and Godspeed! The last photo is the phasing plan for the stained glass repair project currently underway at Trinity. Several people have asked about it.

We are also happy to bring you Pastor Heidi’s sermon from Sunday, June 23, 2019.

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!
