Making a Difference
Trinity, together with other parishes in Greece, is involved in the ministry Habitat for Humanity. This organisation works for a world where everyone has a decent place to live and call home. Central to this ministry is fundraising in order to build homes in Rochester. If you would like to be involved contact Myrna Lawrence-Waters on 585-865-1907 or Mark Moyer on 585-368-9515.
Little Free Libraries
Volunteering to help build a literacy friendly neighborhood. Delivered and built the beautiful Little FREE Libraries http://littlefreelibrary.org to each of our city community gardens. If you are interested in helping us manage the libraries please call 654-9229 and leave a message for Deacon Mike.
Engaging Public Policies
Are you interested in how your faith shapes the world around you? Are you passionate about seeing God's kingdom come on earth as in heaven? The Public policy committee helps to educate us around contemporary social issues such as civil rights, criminal justice, economic justice, fracking and the environment, and immigration. They provide opportunities to learn but also to stand with the poor and marginalised of this world. If you would like to learn more or become involved in this ministry, contact Dorothy Romanet on 585-621-5215 or Revd. Debs Duguid-May on 585-729-3231.
In this group you will never stop learning and growing!
Feeding Hungry Families
Trinity is a partner of the Greece Ecumenical Food Shelf. After joining with seven churches to establish the Greece Ecumenical Food Shelf in 1977, Trinity remains very active in assisting the Shelf through volunteer activity and contributions, both in goods and in the form of donations. Some of our members deliver food which means they also shop for fresh produce on their delivery days. Others help stock the Shelf. Others help pick up food at Food Link that the Shelf purchased with their funds, and deliver the boxes to the Shelf. Others organize a Thanksgiving food drive to directly help families whose names were supplied by the Shelf. Once a month, others present the food (dry goods) donated at Trinity to be blessed during the offering. These same people deliver the donations to the shelf which is located at 500 Maiden Lane, Rochester, NY 14616. Dorothy Romanet is currently Trinity’s representative to the Shelf and can be contacted at 585-621-5215 for more information or to join this ministry.

The Trinity labyrinth can be walked at any time. In the foyer and in the kiosk are leaflets to guide you. There are also monthly guided walks. Check the Events section for dates and times.
Our labyrinth is an outdoor brick & grass modified 7-circuit medieval labyrinth. It is made up of approximately 690 bricks, including the entrance path and is approximately 50 feet in diameter. As you enter the labyrinth you are facing east—the direction of the rising sun, hope, light, the risen Son.
The labyrinth is intended to be self-sustaining, via donations and the cost of engraved bricks. The center elements (benches and fountain) were graciously donated in memory of George and Thelma Goodman. The perimeter lights were donated in memory of Maggie Stewart. The water fountain and perimeter lights are solar powered.
The labyrinth has been registered with the Labyrinth Society and is one of over 5,300 registered labyrinths in more than 80 countries. It can be found via the World-Wide Labyrinth Locator at www.labyrinthlocator.com (proven search is to put 14615 in the zip code and select a 10 mile radius).
For more information please contact Robin Yergeau by email at email@example.com or (603) 512-9395.
Throughout the year there are plenty of opportunities to give and to share with those in need. From thanksgiving baskets, to mittens and scarves in winter, to christmas gifts for those affected by violence. If you want to give, and are looking for opportunities to share contact Linda and Jim Wackerow on 585-227-2316.
Visiting the Sick
Being ill often means being cut off from people. For those with long term illness, frailty or disability this can be a terrible lonely period of life. At Trinity we have a group of people who visit those who are house-bound or in hospital. If you would like a visit, or would like to join this ministry, contact Revd Debs on 585-729-3231.
