Hello everyone! I am very excited to be appointed as your
Deacon at Trinity Episcopal Church. I anticipate much fun in getting to know
you as we go forward, even in these times of physical isolation. I am a cradle
Episcopalian, raised at St. Anskar’s Episcopal Church in Rockford, Ill. I have
lived in Ohio for almost 35 years. I attended six different churches in the
diocese as I moved around with my assignments from by Honda of America
I was ordained deacon in 2007 by Bishop Breidenthal and spent nearly 13 years as a deacon at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Columbus. I know many of your from your service at His Place and it was always a pleasure to know Trinity was coming on Wednesday nights. Since ending my assignment at St. John’s last year, my servant ministry as a deacon has focused on the Solarize Ohio project to install solar systems on as many Episcopal churches as possible. I have missed being involved in a liturgical ministry and am thankful Rev. Burnett and Bishop Breidenthal have agreed to my assignment at Trinity.
My day job is as part owner of Energility LLC, a commercial energy audit company. Energility completed the energy audit at Trinity and assisted in the lighting upgrades. My partner, Justin Kale, will take over as the main contact for any on-going work by Energility for the church.
Kathy and I have been married for 17 years and have a blended family of five daughters, four sons-in-law, eight fantastic grandchildren, and one very spoiled 75 pound lab mix. Kathy grew up at Trinity Church, being both baptized and confirmed there. One of her favorite memories is of wandering around the building finding God in the nooks and crannies while her mother performed altar guild duties. She is at least as excited as I am about this appointment.
Kathy and I both look forward to meeting you, virtually and then in person after my official start with you June 1st.
Your brother in Christ,
Trinity offers Sunday School for elementary school - high school children and youth and nursery care on a year round basis. While attendance varies, typically 5 - 8 children attend each week.
We continue to use the curriculum posted on the Episcopal Church website with the elementary aged children as posted HERE.
Each week we gather around our small "altar" table to light candles and offer prayers. We follow the church year, using a small liturgical calendar. We decorate the table with the liturgical color of the season and the children's creative arts. If you have any questions or would like more information, contact Rachel.
