Vestry Candidates for 2024

You may recall from our Annual Meeting at the beginning of 2023, three members came off Vestry, as our by-laws prescribe. However, we had only one candidate, leaving us with seven of the nine Vestry positions filled in 2023. We are grateful for those who have served this last year.

Once again, three members are coming off the Vestry after three years of service, Mary K., Laurie Jo, and Meg. David H. and Nancy M. have stepped forward to return to serve again, after their year off (although, Nancy remained the Vestry Clerk, with no vote this last year). When they take their seats on the Vestry, we will be down to six Vestry members. Our by-laws require a minimum of five Vestry members.

Please prayerfully consider serving on the Vestry. Trinity would really benefit from a more robust Vestry and some new perspective.

Delegate Candidates for 2024 Convention.

Please consider representing Trinity at 2024 Diocese Convention as a delegate. We need 3 delegates and 2 alternates. The convention will be entirely on-line, this year.

 

Convention Dates:

Convocation: Saturday, October 12, 9-11, zoom only

Convention: Saturday, November 16, Time TBD, zoom only

Up-coming Events

REVIVAL with Presiding Bishop

Michael Curry

""What we have got to keep in mind is that revivals, throughout history and right now, are not just events-- they are movements.


My deep prayer is that we come to see ourselves not simply as The Episcopal Church, but as the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement: a community for whom Jesus Christ and his way of love is our way of life and the heart of our witness in the world.


A revival movement means

this becomes ever more true and real for us."

- Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry
