Dear Friends,

     I know you will recognize, with great fondness, the words from the prologue to John’s gospel.   These words typically ring out in church services the world over on Christmas morning.  With these words, we enter into John’s understanding of the birth of Emmanuel—God with us.

     Christmas morning services are actually my favorite of the season.  Not that I don’t have a special fondness for children’s services and the setting up of the creche, or the singing of Silent Night, there is something particularly poignant about Christmas morning.  The clamor of the night before, of the excitement of new birth and the rush that comes with it has calmed and the quiet stillness, the hush of new life, brings everything into focus as the tiniest of light shines forth.

     The gospel of John recognizes that God chose to come to the people in the midst of great darkness, to bring to them the light of hope, as can only be found in the birth of something new.  These words come to us at Holy Trinity in the midst of what can only be described as a very dark time, but they bring with them the promise that in the midst of darkness and chaos God creates.   God brings forth new life.   God’s light shines; overwhelmingly!

     Holy Trinity has proclaimed that promise for 307 years and intends to continue to proclaim God’s presence with us into a future yet unknown.  I invite you to join us as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and the promise of new life on Christmas Eve at 7:00 p.m. and to join us as we journey forward baring the light of Christ into a darkness that shall not overcome it!

 

In anticipation of Christ’s Mass,

The Rev. Leslie M. St. Louis

Dear Holy Trinity Members and Friends,

Many of you are aware that the vestry was to meet this evening. Thank you all for your heartfelt prayers, they have surrounded us and buoyed us as we have worked to discern the will of God. I am pleased to share with you that the vestry has decided to reverse the decision to close Holy Trinity at the end of December and will instead remain open and continuing operations as Holy Trinity Episcopal Church and Day School. The vestry believes that this is a faithful decision and in the best interest of both the church and our ministry Holy Trinity Episcopal Church School.

What’s next? The Holy Spirit is surely hovering over us at this time and just as Mary answered the Holy Spirit with the words “let it be,” so I think we make the same response. Let us for the moment, gather under the shadow of the Holy Spirit, come together to worship in these anticipatory days of Advent and rejoice in the birth of Emmanuel, God with us on Christmas Eve.

There will be time in the light of the New Year to determine the fullness of the path forward as the Body of Christ that is Holy Trinity Episcopal Church and School. For now let us rejoice and bask in the love of our God who remains with us….always.

In Christ,

Rev. Leslie
