Welcome...

We are a vibrant Episcopal family united in following Christ.

Welcome to Trinity Church! We hope your experience with us is an uplifting one and encourages you to join us as you make your way through your life’s journey. If you are joining us for the first time, you will find the people of this parish are exceptionally warm and welcoming.
 

When asked what makes our parish as special as it is, the quickest reply is that the quality of the people in this parish make it a dynamic, joyful place of worship. Indeed Trinity is blessed with warm, caring, and compassionate people who are eager to follow the will of God Almighty in a variety of ways.

If you feel called to take part in any of our parish ministries, speak with a member of the parish and they will be able to point you in the right direction. One thing you definitely want to do is join us after worship for fellowship and conversation!

 

If you have questions (which are encouraged!) and would like to speak to someone at Trinity Church, feel free to call the office at (802-775-4368) to schedule an appointment. Thank you for taking the time to visit us today and may God bless you and those you love.

Diocesan-wide Confirmation Ceremony in September—The Diocese of Vermont with the support of The Cathedral Church of St. Paul is planning a Diocesan-wide event to confirm prepared candidates at a ceremony to be scheduled in September. If you, or someone you know, would like to be confirmed, please contact the church office to learn more about preparation classes and details of the ceremony.

Women of Trinity Gathering—The Women of Trinity will be gathering at Sallie Gill’s Antique Mansion B&B on Tuesday, June 8 at 6:00pm. For contact tracing purposes, we request RSVPs to the church office email that includes your name, number of people attending in your party and vaccination status. This information will help us plan safety procedures for the venue. During this gathering, we’ll introduce the group to our new priest and elect new officers for the next year since our president, treasurer, and secretary are all stepping down after years of faithful service. Please prayerfully consider taking on one of these roles and email Sue Patrick (or the church office) if you can volunteer.

 

Annual Baby Bottle Drive!—The First Step Pregnancy Center’s annual fundraiser “Baby Bottle Drive” is happening now and runs from Mother’s Day (May 9) through Father’s Day (June 20). If it is inconvenient to stop by the church to pick up a baby bottle to fill with your loose change, simply use a jar or other receptacle convenient to you. Your support for this fundraiser is crucial to the programs at First Step and is greatly valued. If you have any questions, please speak with our parish liaison, Mary Ruth.
