Episcopal Relief and Development
When there is a disaster, the parishioners of Trinity act to support our brothers and sisters in need.
The parish of Trinity Church has often been a refuge and a comfort during times of local, national or worldwide crisis. After tragic events such as the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the 2005 London bombings, the 2004 tsunami in Southeast Asia, and Hurricane Katrina, Trinity has hosted citywide interfaith services to provide a safe place to grieve, pray, and hope together.
In addition to services, special collections are taken for emergency efforts, often donated through Episcopal Relief and Development (ERD), the national church's program of ongoing economic development and disaster response. ERD supplies food, water, and medicine immediately, and when the crisis is over, as well as help to rebuild by working hand-in hand with local communities to build new homes, plant crops, create clean water systems, construct clinics and schools, and offer critical post trauma counseling. Trinity parishioners serve on board and committees.
