When you arrive at Trinity Church for Trinity Institute, you’ll receive a welcome packet with local information and maps, but let’s face it, you’ll probably still get turned around from time to time. That’s why during conference hours you can call the Trinity Institute Concierge. The concierge can provide directions, recommend places to visit or eat, or answer any other questions you may have.
