"As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you. Abide in my love."
Jesus Christ (Sacred Scripture)
If you are looking for a church home to help connect you with God and your neighbor, or if you're a long time Trinity parishioner looking for new ways to connect to your community, you've come to the right place. Below you'll find some touch points to guide you into a deeper, more connective, relationship with God and neighbor. If you'd like more information about anything you see, contact our priest Father Jon.
(Virtual) Coffee with a Priest
Are you looking for a church and have questions about Trinity's mission, values, and community life? Are you hankering for a good theological conversation about the meaning of life? Do you need to make a confession and find absolution? Are you struggling with a big decision and need some spiritual guidance? Do you just need someone to listen to you? Do you need prayer? Do you want to get baptized, married, or plan a funeral? Are you interested in the best cycling trails and most effective way to navigate St. Louis city streets via bicycle?
Whether you're a current parishioner or if this is your first encounter with a church in your life, if you answered yes to any of the above, click the link below to schedule coffee with a priest.
Due to the COVID -19 pandemic, most meetings will take place virtually via zoom. After you sign up, someone will get back to you within 24 hours with meeting information.
Worship with/at Trinity
If these were ordinary times, you'd be invited to worship at 600 N. Euclid Ave in the Central West End neighborhood in St. Louis. There you'd find a warm and welcoming community, and a traditional, yet not stuffy, worship experience in the Anglo-Catholic tradition. What does that mean? It means you will find ancient rituals, incense, bells, beautiful chant and music, and relevant preaching. But most importantly, it means that our worship directs us to extravagantly love and serve our neighbor.
But these are not ordinary times, so instead of in-person worship, you are invited to join the community virtually at 10:30 AM on Facebook. It's not the same, but God is present, even when we are absent from one another.
Prayer and Pastoral Care Requests
Let's be honest, these are difficult times. Many of us have lost valuable connections with friends, family, and neighbors, and world has been turned upside down almost overnight.
If you need prayer, a ride to the doctor, financial support to pay the bills, help navigating an increasingly virtual and digital world, a visit from one of our clergy, or are just looking for a human connection, please let Trinity know.
You can submit prayer and pastoral care requests through the link below, and your need will be discretely communicated to the appropriate pastoral care team member and/or clergy. If you'd like a prayer request to be read during public worship, please indicate your desire in your request.
Trinity Book Discussions
If you appreciate good literature and enjoy lively discussions about what you've read, then you might want to check out a Trinity book group.
Trinity hosts two book groups each month, one book group discusses selections dealing specifically with racial issues and one focuses on books from a variety of genres and topics.
In normal times, book groups meet in parishioner homes, but during the current pandemic they are meeting online via Zoom.
Spiritual Resources and Education Opportunities
Trinity offers a variety of educational and spiritual resources to help connect folks to each other and to God. These include prayer groups, bible studies, theology classes, Episcopal 101 classes, and so much more.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, all of these resources are available virtually, and you will need access to either zoom or Facebook to participate. To learn more, click the link below.
