All of us seek to return to God. Such is the bold claim St. Gregory of Nyssa (335-395CE) makes in his commentary on the book of Genesis. The first thing we human beings saw when we opened our eyes, writes Gregory, was the face of God, inches away from ours, having just breathed into us the breath of life. And all human beings, whether we know it or not, remember that first vision of God's eyes looking into ours, God's arms holding us close. And we yearn to return to it. For Gregory, human life is a journey to return to God. Jesus Christ, God's son, shows us the way.
At Trinity Parish, we recognize that all of us are on a journey seeking to return to God. We invite you to journey with us! Through our weekly Eucharist, our learning groups (such as the catechumenate), and the help of an intimate and supportive community, we will make known to you what we have seen and heard of Jesus Christ. What we ask you offer in return is an earnest seeking and a willingness to rise up to Christ's call to follow him in today's world.
Trinity Parish follows Christ in the paths of the Episcopal Church, a rich heritage that encourages curiosity and invites questions, that values beauty and joy, that is afraid neither of uncertainty nor silence, and that finds life in the tensions and spaces of God's mystery. Trinity Parish is a community that loves good music and good food, that is committed to justice and helping those in need, and that strives to walk ever more closely with the Lord in our daily lives.
Let us show you the path that we have found. Be our companion on the journey. And let us
help you return to God, in every part of your life.
