In case you wondered, the Trinity Times is our monthly newsletter, and provides more in-depth coverage of what’s happening at Trinity than our other communications channels do.  It’s definitely worth reading!

Trinity Times for February 2018

We are happy to bring you the Trinity Times for February 2018.

The Trinity Times has been for decades the monthly newsletter of the parish.  While we touch the high points in our weekly Trinity Update e-mail, it is in the Trinity Times that you get to peep behind the scenes, and to explore our current projects and occasionally our current issues in some depth.

You can download it here:

Sunday Bulletin for January 7 2018

Here’s the Sunday Bulletin for January 7 2018 at Trinity Lime Rock!

Sunday Bulletin for January 7 2018

Just click above to download it.

You can read it at home and prepare for the service, or you can download it at Trinity and read it on your portable electronic device during the service.   (In case you’re new to Trinity, we have Holy Eucharist at 8 AM and 19:30 AM on Sundays.  There’s music at the 10:30 service, and coffee hour follows the later service — please join us!)

Below is a quick look at the Christmas altar, courtesy of Cheryl Duntz.  We will be “de-greening” the church during coffee hour — removing the Christmas decorations and getting set for the season of Epiphany — so you’re invited to join in that transformation as well.

Rota for first quarter 2018

Here’s the rota for first quarter 2018

What’s a rota?   It’s the schedule of who, among our many wonderful volunteers, performs what roles in our Sunday services.

Our Verger prepares this (with a whole lot of input from the volunteers themselves) a week or two before each quarter ends and gets it “out there” so that people can plan their schedules as far in advance as possible.

Without further ado, here’s the rota for first quarter 2018!

You can also see a copy posted at Trinity, or pick up a printed copy there as well.

Thanks to all of our volunteers for all that they do for Trinity!

Trinity Times for December 2017

Your Trinity Times for December 2017 is ready to download.

Here it is!

Trinity Times for December 2017

Simply click to download it in PDF format.  Or, if this doesn’t work for you, you can pick up a paper copy at Trinity when you’re there.

But it’s important to read your monthly Trinity Times.  Why?  Well, you may think you know all that’s happening from our weekly e-mail Trinity Update — and perhaps you do — but the Trinity Times takes the time to tell you a bit of the “why” about what we are doing, both in terms of individual events and projects, and as a parish of The Episcopal Church.

We recommend it to you!

Instructed Eucharist

Instructed Eucharist at Trinity

November 19 was the Youth Sunday for November, and, in addition to the young people assuming most of the roles in the service, they took on a significant part of the instructed Eucharist we hold from time to time.   The instructed Eucharist is basically a series of planned interruptions of the service in which readers provide commentary about what has just happened and about what is going to happen next.  We don’t conduct them frequently because the narratives do disrupt the flow of the service, but when we do, most people find it to be a learning experience.

It’s not just for the young people that we hold these, by the way.  Most adults can still learn something about the way our principal worship service is conducted and why it is the way it is.  For that reason we’ve decided to provide the script for this year’s instructed Eucharist  so you can read over what you heard on Sunday.

Trinity Times for October 2017

The new Trinity Times for October 2017 is now available  for download.

CLICK HERE to get your copy.

In case you’re unfamiliar with the Trinity Times, this publication has been appearing monthly, more or less, for at least 20 years, and is intended to provide a bit more information about selected events at Trinity — and in the world — than one can get from the short paragraph our weekly e-mail newsletter, the Trinity Update, could possibly contain.

If you would prefer to have the Trinity Times for October 2017 on paper, you can pick up a copy at Trinity.  Usually there are copies on the table at the rear of the nave, on the table outside the door of the sacristy, or on the table at the doors to Walker Hall.
