Welcome to the Internet home of Trinity Episcopal Church of
Whether you have been practicing in a faith tradition for some time or are not sure what to believe, you are welcome here.
We at Trinity are an inclusive, progressive, and creative community located in the heart of downtown Toledo. We are committed to the following ideals:
- We will practice radical hospitality.
- We will be engaged in the life of our city.
- We will stand with those in need: the poor, the sick, the friendless, the marginalized.
- We will actively invite all to experience and celebrate God’s living presence.
- We will journey together toward a Christ-centered life, pursuing personal ministries that
connect us to God, to one another, and to the world around us.
We reach out to the world and to the community to show the faith can bring peace, justice, and hope.

"...let us not love with words or tongue but with
actions and in truth."

||Feast of St. Francis
At our Feast of St. Francis celebration on
Sunday, October 5, we’ll bless God’s furred, finned and feathered creatures.
We’ll have an “animal-free” liturgy at 8:30 and an “animalfriendly”
10:30 service with pet blessings. Be sure that all of your animals are on a leash or in a carrier.
We’re also collecting donations of dog and cat food (dry or canned) on this Sunday to be given to Feed Your Neighbor. If you’re bringing a
beloved pet to be blessed, please bring along a bag or can of pet food as a blessing for beloved pets in poor families.

Before there was a New Testament or creeds as we know them, Christians gathered together for worship
in a form very similar to what we know today as Holy Eucharist. As we read in the Book of Acts, Christians gathered together for the “breaking of the
bread and the prayers.” From the days of the early Church, the Holy Eucharist has been the central event in Christian worship and it is designed
to teach us, feed us, and inspire us.
Every Eucharist is a drama - a drama in which we enact, proclaim and participate in the mighty acts of God.
On Sunday, Oct. 12, our drama will be a little different, because we will stop the action at certain points to explain its significance. Each service will be
an Instructed Eucharist, a narrated service with explanations at various moments to help make clearer and more obvious what we’re doing and why we’re
doing it. In this way, each of us may come to a deeper understanding of our worship and its meaning and may participate with more insight, enthusiasm, and
ultimately, greater spiritual benefit.
