TRANSITION NEWS

Fr. Steve and Rev. Pam are celebrating their last Sunday at Holy Trinity this weekend. Their last day in the office will be Friday, August 12. In retirement, they will split their time between Florida and North Carolina. For a while, they will continue to live in the parish rectory. If you would like their new address after they move, please contact the church office.

As Holy Trinity moves into a time of transition, Fr. Dave Newhart will be the Priest in Charge. Fr. Bob Bruckart will be the Associate Priest in Charge.

Before a new Rector can be called to serve Holy Trinity, much work will need to be done, including: forming a search committee, surveying the congregation, writing a parish profile, advertising for candidates, praying for God’s will and finally the excitement of interviewing and calling the new Rector(s). The most important thing that all of you can do now is PRAY for God to bless and guide this process!

You may contact Fr. Dave at and Fr. Bob at .
