On April 17, 2016, Holy Trinity welcomed the Dean of Coventry Cathedral, the Very Rev. John J. Witcombe, to its pulpit at the 10:30 service. Dean Witcombe honored Holy Trinity as a new Partner in the Community of the Cross of Nails (CCN) by presenting the parish with a cross blessed in Coventry, England. This gift marks the initiation of Holy Trinity's new Cross of Nails Reconciliation Ministry which will network with some 200 other worldwide partners.


Please join us for:


  • Brown Bag Book Group: The group will meet every other Wednesday at       1 p.m. beginning September 6 to read and discuss books related to the theme of reconciliation, peace, healing, and acceptance of others. The first book will be The Book of Joy by His Holiness Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, with Douglas Abrams.
  • Conversation that Matter: These will be held from 9:15-10:00 a.m. on the last Sunday of most months in the far end of the parish hall. The topics will focus around healing wounds of history, respecting diversity, and building a culture of peace.
