Children, Youth, and Families

Trinity welcomes families of all kinds into a vibrant and diverse community of faith. Children, youth, and families are encouraged to participate in Trinity’s numerous and varied opportunities for worship, education, service, and fellowship.

 

Worship

Trinity offers 25 services throughout the week, including two on Sunday that are especially family friendly:

The Holy Eucharist at 9:15am on Sundays in St. Paul’s Chapel is a relaxed, engaging 45-minute church service designed specifically to be accessible to adults and children of all ages and those new to church, with a short sermon and music both traditional and new. Coffee and refreshments are served before and after the service.

The 11:15am Holy Eucharist is held on Sundays in St. Paul's Chapel. Children’s Chapel is offered during the adult sermon for those who wish to participate.
