Into All the World
Trinity Church exists to share in God's mission, within our community (Pastoral Care), and in the world at large (Outreach). The good news of God's love in Jesus Christ sends us out into the world to share this Gospel, to struggle for mercy and justice on behalf of the poor and oppressed, and to provide spiritual care to those in need due to sickness, loneliness or despair.
Trinity's most recent effort to share the Gospel in word and deed is our participation in the Diocese of New Jersey's Way of Saint Paul initiative. Members of Trinity are taking intentional steps to learn about the spiritual needs of our community, to discern how to meet those needs, and to proclaim the good news of Jesus to people of all ages and walks of life.
Do justice. Love mercy. Walk humbly.
In our efforts to share the Gospel in action, Trinity partners with a wide array of charitable organizations that promote justice, peace, and well being in the wider Princeton community, as well as throughout the world. Trinity's Outreach program facilitates these partnerships, and Trinity members regularly volunteer and fundraise for these transformative organizations.
Outreach at Trinity Church enables us to live out our baptismal promise "to seek and serve Christ as all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself...to strive for justice and peace among all people, and to respect the dignity of every human being." (Book of Common Prayer, 305) In order to accomplish this, we partner with local and global organizations. We support them by raising funds, making grants, and performing hands-on service.
Trinity Outreach Programs & partners
One body, many members.
Trinity is committed to providing pastoral care to any who are in need. Trinity's Pastoral Care tradition is one of devoted clergy working hand in hand with trained lay ministers/parishioners. Our lay-led pastoral care teams are always available to be a nurturing presence.
Our pastoral care teams are devoted to the spiritual care of each of Trinity's members and their loved ones, making themselves available for prayer, conversation, comfort, a listening ear, a caring presence, and to serve the Eucharist to those who cannot make it to church. There are multiple Pastoral Care Teams:
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Additionally, our Trinity Strings string ensemble is available to play at nursing homes and hospitals.
Please contact us if you or someone you love is in need of pastoral care.
