“Reaching Up to the Roof and Out to Our Neighbors” is a campaign for necessary capital improvements to Trinity’s physical plant. These improvements are essential to allowing the parish to continue God’s work in Torrington - hence our theme of reaching up and out.
The campaign received approximately $500,000 in pledges from the congregation and community. Despite the campaign being 3 years in duration, more than half of those pledges were paid in full within the first eight months.
A new roof has been installed on the sanctuary, clerestory stained glass windows have been restored, a new ramp for accessibility has been constructed, exterior doors have been improved, exterior wood replaced and painted, plaster restored and water incursion stopped. Restoration of additional stained glass windows is planned. In addition, pledged monies have been designated for a restricted capital repair and improvement account for future use.
Our stewardship campaign focuses on the pledging of monetary support to provide for God’s mission for Trinity - both within our faith community and beyond, in the community all about us. Everything that we have is a gift from God; the stewardship campaign is our opportunity to return to God a portion of what God has given to us.
Planned giving is simply an opportunity to pass a portion of one’s estate on to Trinity, in order to continue to aid Trinity in achieving God’s mission in the future. This can be done in many ways; the simplest is to gift a percentage of your estate to Trinity in your will. The Tower Society is a group of people who have already included Trinity in their will/estate planning. If you would like more information, please contact Trinity (at firstname.lastname@example.org) or Roger Coutant (at email@example.com)
Flowers decorating the Chancel on Sundays and special occasions may be given in memory of a loved one, in celebration of an event or in thanksgiving for an event or person. Arrangements for these donations may be made by contacting the parish office.
A memorial book recording the names of those parishioners who have died, and all who have been buried from Trinity church, is displayed in the wooden case at the back of the sanctuary near the courtyard entry door.
