Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

Over the past few weeks I have pondered what I would say in this my last missive as your Rector. How I wanted to wax eloquent and intelligent, spiritual and humble, joyful and reflective, and then I woke from the dream. Thank You is perhaps the best prayer that I can offer to God and to you for our 10+ years together in ministry. Thank You for our times of great joy, when laughter and silliness would erupt. Thank You for the hospitality of spirit in reaching out to the people around you – new folks, folks in need of prayer, food or monetary support; folks who had been members for many years; folks of all ages, infant to centenarian; folks who have plenty and folks who are in need. You have opened your doors and your hearts to welcome them all.

As you may know, we have a number of members who are not able to regularly attend church services at Trinity because of health or mobility issues. Several members volunteer on a regular basis to visit them and take communion to them. Some of those volunteers are now retiring from this ministry, and so new volunteers are needed. If you would be interested, please contact Deacon Jim Lanning at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by calling 630-462-7135. The commitment would be for one or two visits per month.
