New Sound System at Trinity
Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, Trinity now has a new sound system. Not only does the new system provide a cleaner, crisper, and more even sound, it also comes complete with assisted listening devices. If you would like to use one of our assisted listening devices, please talk to an usher at the beginning of the service. Again, thanks to the anonymous donors for this generous gift that makes Trinity a more accessible community.
