A NEW RECTOR HAS BEEN CALLED!
THE REVEREND JIMMY ABBOTT

Dear Fellow Parishioners,
 
Led by the Holy Spirit and supported by your prayers, the Vestry has accepted the recommendation of the Search Committee and called The Reverend Jimmy Abbott to be the 12th Rector of our beloved Trinity Church. We all unanimously and firmly believe that Jimmy is the right person to lead us in the next phase in our mission to fulfill God’s purposes for us both individually and as a community of faith.
 
I am filled with joy and gratitude as I bring this welcome news. Jimmy, his wife Maggie, and their seven-year-old daughter Lydia are excited to be joining us. The Search Committee is excited. The Vestry is excited. Everyone is excited and we believe that you will be, too!
 
Jimmy will be introducing himself to you all very soon. His first Sunday at Trinity is August 22. In the meantime, I can tell you that he is currently the rector at Holy Comforter Episcopal Church in Spring, Texas. If you would like to learn a bit more about him and listen to some of his sermons and podcasts, please visit their website at https://www.holycomforterspring.org/

We will be planning a very warm welcome for the Abbott family, and you will be hearing lots more about that in the coming weeks. Until then we continue to be grateful to Rev. Lillian for her leadership through the past incredibly challenging year as we prepare to say thank you to her and Bill - and not goodbye, but “until we meet again.”
 
With peace and joy,
Susan Duif, Senior Warden
