After just a couple minutes of silence, the prelude will start – a five voice motet for the feast of the Trinity by Renaissance composer Jacob Regnart. Warm thanks to all the musicians who participated this week, specially to our two new guests, Jermaine Woodard Jr., and Chris Belluscio!

Easter II

Easter 2020

The Easter service this year was unlike any before in the history of Trinity — but the last time we dealt with a pandemic was 100 years ago, with the Great Influenza of 1918 – 1920, and we did not have the internet to offer a different way to “do church” — nor the medical and epidemiological knowledge to know how to handle epidemics.

This year there was no Easter Vigil, and no 8 AM Holy Eucharist.  The 10:30 AM Eucharist, however, reflected the four weeks experience we have now had in virtual services, and, if you missed in, it is well worth watching.  You can do it here:

One final note:  many people like to drop something extra in the offering plate on Easter.  If this sounds like you, Please click HERE to go to the page where we help you do that, even in these virtual times.

During the week, be aware of our offerings including Bible study and Book Group, and we are very fortunate that Christine Gevert is providing us with a 15 – 20 minute organ meditation/improvisation based on a hymn every evening at 7 PM.  You can find them on our Facebook Page.

We wish you a joyous Easter Season!!
