Vestry Members Needed

Dear parishioners of Trinity Church: Our Annual Meeting occurs the first Sunday in February and at that meeting we elect the new Vestry members. We need 3 people for full 3-year Vestry terms and 1 person to fill a 1-year term due to a vacancy on the Vestry.

Please contact Fr. Court or one of the Vestry or Wardens if you are interested in the vitally important work. Thanks!
Services at Trinity Continue Online

Due to the fact that Tier 3 Mitigations are still in place in Illinois, the Diocese has provided direction to discontinue in-person services for the time being.

As long as we are in Tier 3 we will continue to only hold Zoom virtual services, including for Christmas eve. (Please see below for more information on how to attend.)
Vestry Meetings

The Vestry has voted to hold our ongoing meetings on the 3rd Sunday of each month at noon unless otherwise indicated. Meetings may be held by conference call instead.

Minutes of Vestry meetings are now available online (in .pdf format)
