Word from the Sr. Warden
This missive is a follow up to the letters you received from Fr. Paul and myself in March regarding upcoming changes to Trinity management and worship. We want to keep you all updated on the progress of our transition to Vestry responsibility and worship services with supply priest and lay-led worship teams.
As Amador County vaccination is progressing, we look forward to safe re-opening. To help us in our planning, the Vestry members have begun making calls to each of you to re-establish your membership status in Trinity and hear from you directly on when you might be ready to return to worship in the church.
You will begin to see changes in our worship service in April with lay-led worship beginning April 11. Fr Paul is still with us aiding and advising us throughout this transition. You will continue to see him in various roles in Sunday worship service. For at least the next two months you can look forward to his Eucharist services the first Sunday of the month, and for our most special of Holy Days, he will lead Eucharist at Pentecost and on Trinity Sunday.
Vestry has been moving ahead in assuming the Church responsibilities, taking the lead on the day-to-day management of four major areas: Pastoral, Liturgical, Administrative, and our Facilities. Below is list of Vestry team leaders, their area of responsibility.
Pastoral—Spiritual needs of the parish
Diane Christensen—Prayers for parishioners (prayer chain email, prayers of the people in worship, newsletter)
Liturgical—Church services, high seasons and holy days, supply priest scheduling, and music
Music Director, Mary Yount
Administrative/Treasurer—Communications, Diocese requirements and reporting, office management
Newsletter, Nancy Moore, Meg Verardi,
Facilities—Building and grounds
David Hoos, Jr. Warden

Of course, you can also contact me directly with any input, questions, or concerns.
