Save the Date!

Sunday, September 9th, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
10am Service at Lighthouse Point, Picnic to follow
For this year’s end of summer picnic, we will gather together at Lighthouse Point, both for the 10am morning Eucharist as for the picnic!
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.

Menu including hamburgers, hotdogs, buns, condiments, water and drinks will be served and available on site.

Please bring a beach chair, side dish (Names A-L) or dessert (Names M-Z). If you would like to join our picnic volunteer team please contact Leigh Cromey.

There will be special toys and games for kids.

A printable parking pass can be found at this link. Please be sure to have a physical copy when you arrive. Parking fees are otherwise upwards of $25 for non-New Haven residents.

Please note that Trinity will be using the Harbor Pavilion, which is neither the Carousel Pavilion nor the outdoor seating area immediately adjacent.


While we’re at Lighthouse Point, we’ll be sharing the park with a wedding, which will take place at in the Carousel Building, so don’t be confused if you see other parties moving about the park. Trinity will have signage in the park to help you find the Harbor Pavilion.

Weather forecasts now suggest a cooler and rainier day than anticipated. Please dress accordingly. Trinity is an all-weather ministry with church picnic to match.

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