We at Trinity Episcopal Church have spent the last two years working to discover how to renew the “old” treasures we have inherited in our historic campus and transform them into “something new,” guided by our faith tradition, which tells us both “old” and “new” are necessary for thriving communities. In doing so, we hope both to continue Trinity’s historic mission in Highland Park and open that work, and ourselves, in ways we have never imagined. Some of our efforts have been literal “restoration”: Our renovated hall and stage now welcome events, classes, and performances that bring new faces and people into our buildings. Other work has improved the portion of our building that houses the Tri-Con Child Care Center, which serves low-income children and which Trinity has hosted at no cost for more than 50 years. We continue to seek ways both new and old to contribute to the well-being of all who come through our doors.
Trinity’s small congregation cannot sustain this work on our own. We need the support of both friends and other building users to continue to make our campus available to our community. To help sustain and expand our work, we are inaugurating a new way for supporters and building users help sustain our service in and for the community: a dedicated “Trinity Fund for Community, the Arts, and the Spirit.” Gifts to this fund will be devoted to maintaining Trinity’s campus for community and educational use, which includes Tri-Con, as well as AA and Al-Anon meetings, free English classes, and concerts. Gifts to this dedicated fund will be used only for these purposes, while Trinity’s religious mission will continue to be supported by its members’ contributions.
We at Trinity hope you will make a gift to sustain Trinity’s presence and service in our community, either by sending a contribution in the enclosed envelope or by contributing online by scanning the QR code. We are grateful for your support, which makes possible work that our congregation could not sustain on its own. Such partners are indeed treasures that help us share what we have received to all who make use of our campus. Trinity Episcopal Church is a 501(c)3 organization and gifts are tax deductible.
