The Rotary Club has held a Fall Electronic Waste Recycle event at Trinity for the past several years. Due to tariffs on China, it is harder to find a market for recycled items, so it is still not decided if there will be an event this year. 


Watch here for details.

HOLY WEEK services

  • Bright SUNDAY

    SUNDAY, APRIL 8th @ 10am

    Many American churches are resurrecting an old Easter custom begun by the early Greek Christians --- "Bright Sunday" or "Holy Humor Sunday" celebrations on the Sunday after Easter. For centuries in all Christian faith traditions, the week following Easter Sunday was observed by the faithful as "days of joy and laughter" with parties and picnics to celebrate Jesus' resurrection. 

  • GOOD FRIDAY SERVICE

    FRIDAY, MARCH 30TH @ 7:30PM

    The source of our term for the Friday before Easter, "Good Friday," is not clear.  It may be a corruption of the English phrase "God's Friday," according to Professor Laurence Hull Stookey in Calendar: Christ's Time for the Church (p. 96). It is the common name for the day among English and Dutch speaking people. It is a day that proclaims God's purpose of loving and redeeming the world through the cross of our Lord, Jesus Christ. It is a day that is good because God was drawing the world to God's self in Christ.


    As seen in John's gospel, particularly, God was in control. God was not making the best of a bad situation, but was working out God's intention for the world — winning salvation for all people. We call it "good" because we look backward at the crucifixion through the lens of Easter!

  • MAUNDY THURSDAY SERVICE

    THURSDAY, MARCH 29TH @ 7PM

    Our Maunday Thursday Service will be a combined service with Saint Benedict Episcopal Church.  St Benedict Episcopal Church is located at 2220 Snowy Egret Ln, Los Osos, CA 93402


    Maundy Thursday is an alternate name for Holy Thursday, the first of the three days of solemn remembrance of the events leading up to and immediately following the crucifixion of Jesus. The English word "Maundy" comes from the Latin mandatum, which means "commandment." As recorded in John's gospel, on his last night before his betrayal and arrest, Jesus washed the feet of his disciples and then gave them a new commandment to love one another as he had loved them (John 13:34). This is why services on this night generally include the washing of feet or other acts of physical care as an integral part of the celebration.

  • PALM SUNDAY SERVICE

    SUNDAY, MARCH 25TH @ 10AM

    The Sunday immediately preceding Easter Sunday. Palm Sunday commemorates the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem and begins the series of observances focusing on the events of Holy Week. This Sunday is also often referred to as Passion Sunday, marking the beginning of the passion, or suffering, of Jesus leading to and including the crucifixion.
