Trinity Vestry commitees

Trinity committees help guide the community's life together. They organize fellowship events, run the annual stewardship campaign, oversee Trinity's religious formation program, and manage institutional affairs such as finances and building and grounds. Trinity committee chairs are appointed by the parish vestry. If you'd like more information about one of the committees below or would like to serve on a committee, please contact Michael Shepley Trinity's Senior Warden.
