Trinity Sunday of Giving is May 30

The Rev. Morgan Allen
May 25, 2021

Dear Trinity Church and friends,


We are only five days away from our inaugural "Trinity Sunday of Giving!"


This day-long event will build meaningful momentum and capacity for our in-person reopening. It will begin promptly at midnight as the clock and calendar turn to May 30, and the initiative will run for 24 hours. We will be in touch often during worship, via email, and through social media, all with the invitation for you and yours to make a gift – in any amount – to the parish. All the gifts we receive will go toward offsetting the costs of our safe return to Copley Square, and toward our continued delivery of high-quality, live-streamed and pre-recorded worship and programs for those who, come September, are not ready to regather in-person. 


Importantly, the event will focus on the number of gifts received, rather than the dollar amount raised. This focus allows for equity in our appeal; everyone can participate at the same level, for every gift will count the same: as one. We intend this emphasis to affirm the sufficiency of our annual Stewardship program endeavored in fall, while also reaching those who have not, yet, made a pledge, or who customarily give when on-campus for our ministries. 


The program will build energy throughout the day with inspiring messages and challenges that prioritize giving through mobile devices and through means (PayPal, Stripe, Text2Give, Google Pay, ACH, debit cards, etc.) uncommon to our Stewardship system. If you have not made an online gift before, this will be your chance to give that technology a whirl! 



How to Help 


  • Most importantly, of course, please plan to make a gift on Trinity Sunday! 
  • Forward our emails directly to anyone you know who has been enjoying our “From Home” worship and programs for this last year.
  • Share our posts to your Facebook page or Instagram Story, so that as many people as possible can participate in the day. 


If you have questions – including how you can make a gift in advance – please email Alison Poor at apoor@trinitychurchboston.org. 


In the meantime, we are eager to hear of your hopes, anxieties, and readiness for our regathering. To that good end, we ask each member of your household 16 and older to complete this simple questionnaire by Trinity Sunday, May 30. 


See you on Sunday!


The Rev. Morgan S. Allen
