Beloved Family in Christ,
As we move in to fall and the weather cools, we are excited to announce we will hold our first in-person service. With permission from the city, we will have our annual Blessing of the Animals at HA Chapman Green (located at 6th and Boston, just one block from Trinity) on Sunday, October 4th at 5:00pm. We invite you to bring your furry, finned, and feathered friends and join us for a socially distanced service.
In order to maintain a level of safety that we feel will make this in-person service possible, we will not be providing paper bulletins. A pdf bulletin will be available on the website before the service. We encourage you to view the bulletin on your device during service, print the bulletin at home and bring it with you, or bring your own Book of Common Prayer to follow along.
Typically we do not have communion at the Blessing of the Animals, but we know so many long to share in the breaking of bread. As such, we will have communion in one kind (wafer only) available for those who wish to partake. Following communion, each pet will receive a special blessing.
This event will be a test ground, of sorts, for future in-person events. Please help us move closer to regular in-person services by respecting our request that all participants practice social distancing and wear a mask.
Don't have a pet? Join us for distanced fellowship and worship anyway, and enjoy the sight of folks wrangling their pets while trying to read a bulletin!
For those of you eager to hear live music from the nave once again, Tuesdays at Trinity will resume on Tuesday, October 6th at 12:05pm. The church will not be open for these performances but they will be live streamed via Trinity's Facebook page. Tulsa Opera will be our first performance. Join us.
Also for our music lovers, or the curious among us, our stellar tech team has put together a fantastic virtual tour of Trinity's pipe organ, with Casey Cantwell as the guide. Check out the video below.
Some of our classes have now wrapped up and we will begin another round of classes in mid October. Mo. Cheryl will facilitate a class called Waking Up White, and Deacon Deborah's book club will begin exploring Faith Unraveled, by Rachel Held Evans. Both classes will be virtual. Find more details and sign up below.

There's a lot going on at Trinity - even if it's virtual. The building may be closed, but the Church is open!
