Celebration Of New Ministry Service

Please plan to be a part of the Celebration of New Ministry on Saturday, October 23, at 5:30 p.m. in the church as we formally welcome
David Umphlett as Rector.

The Rt. Rev. Anne Hodges-Copple, Bishop Suffragan of the Diocese of North Carolina, will preside as the parish celebrates the covenant the Holy Trinity community makes with a new Rector to support each other and carry out God’s work together. The service includes the Eucharist and an induction ceremony in which the Bishop, representatives of the congregation, and representatives of the diocesan clergy present symbolic gifts to the new minister. The preacher will be the Rev. Lloyd A. Lewis, Jr., Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of New Testament at Virginia Theological Seminary. 
Click here for the service bulletin.

After the service, you’re invited to the Patterson Terrace for light refreshments and to toast our new Rector.

Childcare will be provided in Room 105 or on the playground weather permitting.

Almighty God, we ask for your blessing on our Appalachian Trail pilgrims as they travel with intention to God’s Thumbprint.
