Easter Pictures

We captured some wonderful Easter pictures this year at Trinity Lime Rock, but we want to start off with one of the Easter egg hunt on Sunday following the 10:30 AM Festival Eucharist.

However, we’ve got more, beginning with Friday evening’s Good Friday observance, continuing with activities on Saturday during the day, and the Great Vigil of Easter in the evening, and, of course, Easter Sunday.  Those photos and photo albums are found on our Facebook page.

Here are direct links to each:

Click HERE to see a short video of the choir warming up for the Good Friday service.  You’ll also find a few photos of that particularly moving service in our Facebook newsfeed.  Click HERE to see photos of Saturday daytime activities at Trinity.  Click HERE to see more photos of the Easter vigil, and click HERE to see (and hear) a portion of the Exsultet from that service.  And click HERE to see some photos of the 10:30 AM Easter service.

If you dig a little deeper in our Facebook page you’ll see lots more than Easter pictures, because we are a year-round church, one with a choir every Sunday and activities for young people every Sunday, year round.

Here’s one more photo of the Easter egg hunt from Patrick Sullivan and the Lakeville Journal:

Thanks to Patrick Sullivan and the Lakeville Journal for this Easter egg hunter in a hurry!

Bulletin for Trinity Sunday 2017

Here’s the bulletin for Trinity Sunday 2017!

Trinity Sunday is the day we celebrate our birthday, so it’s an even bigger day at our house than it would otherwise be.

There will be special music, and our annual Trinity Sunday picnic follows the service.  All are welcome, there will be hot dogs and hamburgers to grill, and if you could bring a dish to share (side dishes, salads, desserts) it would be great.

Without further ado, here it is:
