2019 Picnic at Lighthouse Point

Trinity Church on the Green

Annual Parish Picnic

Sunday, September 8th, 10am to 2pm

10:00 AM Service at Lighthouse Point Park followed by Parish Picnic

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.
