InReach – The ministry of the InReach committee at Trinity assists our clergy in nurturing and caring for parishioners. This team strives to answer God’s call to care and aid one another by reaching out in tangible ways to families in time of transition, such as death, illness, hospitalization, or the arrival of a newborn. The types of care provided by InReach may include preparing and taking meals to those who are suffering from illness or recovering from surgery, arranging and delivering flowers from the Trinity altar to parishioners in the hospital or unable to attend services, assisting with funeral visitations or receptions, or the simple kindness of sitting in a home while the family participates in the funeral of their loved one.
