Sunday, September 8th, 10am to 2pm

Join us for our annual Parish Picnic starting with the 10:00 AM Worship Service at Harbor Pavilion at Lighthouse Point Park. Trinity will provide hamburgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers, condiments, and beverages. Our traditional BBQ comes with the usual shared potluck contribution, this year’s names A-N: side dish and O-Z: dessert.

Please come join your church family for a fun and relaxing afternoon together!

Note: On this picnic Sunday there will be, as usual, a 7:45am service and the 2:00pm Chapel on the Green service. Exceptionally there will be no 10:00 am service at the church.

Specific Notes

Those with a New Haven beach pass will be able to park as usual. Trinity has reserved a block of parking passes at the park entrance for those who do not already have a pass, but as quantities are limited, please only request a Trinity parking pass at the gate if you don’t already have parking privileges at Lighthouse Point. Check your email in the days leading up to the picnic or call the office for more detailed instructions regarding parking and other logistics. Note that the 7:45 Rite I service and Chapel on the Green will meet at Trinity as usual.

Please bring your own chair, especially if sitting at a picnic table might prove problematic or uncomfortable.

Please be sure to dress for the weather (Current forecasts suggest a high of 73 and a low of 53 for September 8th) and bring sunscreen!

For anyone providing transportation to folks with mobility issues, drop-offs may be made at the Pavilion prior to parking.

More about Adler and Hearne

Texas-based acoustic duo Adler & Hearne, national-touring performing songwriters who describe their music as “a spirited blend of original Folk-Jazz with deep Texas roots.  The duo’s musical formative years share common experiences in folk, gospel and classical music – organic influences that inform their singing and songwriting. But the subject matter of their songs knows no bounds, nor does their musical style. Their live sets range from crooning songs of love and longing, losing and finding – to covering touchy subjects with unexpected musical overtones – to camping it up with modern day spirituals steeped in dry wit. And they pride themselves on their multigenerational audience appeal.

Labyrinth for Chapel on the Green

Walking the Labyrinth—a winding, maze-like pathway with no wrong turns—is an ancient spiritual practice that has been regularly provided at Chapel on the Green.

In past years, it has been a temporary Labyrinth made of string. Trinity seeks donations to enable purchasing of a canvas Labyrinth that will be rolled out on important occasions such as Maundy Thursday, then cleaned and stored for reuse at each succeeding event.

Through this investment, Trinity will enrich not only Chapel on the Green, but other programs  as well. Please make a special gift to help Trinity purchase this permanent Labyrinth. Click the Donate Now! button and contribute to the Labyrinth fund.

Music 4 Music

Trinity’s music program is both venerable and extensive. It includes three choirs and an acclaimed chorister academy that provides choral and leadership training to school-aged girls and boys. It offers traditional Anglican church music to Trinity Parish and greater New Haven, both during services and in concerts offered to the community.

To supplement budgeted operating funds, the Music 4 Music program organizes special events featuring renowned artist and groups—recently, Chanticleer in concert.  Your donation in support of these efforts is welcome at any time and always appreciated.

Historic Preservation

Trinity’s building contains many historic treasures.  It was the first neo-Gothic church built in North America, one that launched thousands of buildings in the same style.  It has nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first century stained glass windows.  It is fully fitted for handicapped access. Ever-changing accessibility, safety, and security requirements require yearly updates.  Unlike many other historic facilities, Trinity invests continually to maintain the interior and exterior of its physical plant. Its electrical system, water supply, lighting, sound system, decorative windows, interior appointments and operating spaces require ongoing upgrades and repairs. Please help preserve our well-maintained historic building by donating now.
