Chain of Gratitude

Thank you Julie Kaminski for putting the "Good News" Newsletter together monthly. Julie is the best news yet!

Thank you Pat Chadwick, Sexton, for working with many contractors to keep our facility and grounds in top notch order. The hats she wears keep multiplying.

Thank you to Deacon Wendy Pearson for the community outreach EMS Sunday celebration. Such a thoughtful idea.

Thank you Becky Wright and Ivan Egnatuk for having the vision to submit a grant to the Cronin Foundation seeking funding for repairs on our Historical Building. We are praying for a successful outcome.

Becky Wright Somsel and Ivan Egnatuk submit Building Restoration Grant

We, as stewards, have written and submitted to the Cronin Foundation for the restoration of major issues for our Historic Trinity Church. The restoration project will be carried out in four phases. 

Phase I: Exterior and Infrastructure Renovation (Boilers/Heating/Ventilation, new Parish Hall roof, exterior walls/steeple restoration), 

Phase II: Sanctuary/Interior Wall Restoration, 

Phase III: Sanctuary/Interior Wall Painting, 

Phase IV: Dedication. 

Historic Trinity Episcopal Church is a refuge and a richly woven historic tapestry not only for those in need but also for the entire community and generations to come. Our intent is to preserve and protect these walls and steeple as a beacon of hope for not only Marshall but for those visiting near and far.

Please continue to pray for Historic Trinity Church as we seek the necessary funding to continue its mission. As the Reverend Montgomery Schuyler stated at the Consecration, May 12, 1864:


“Here you will bring your children to the baptismal font. Here will those baptismal vows be renewed in the Apostolic rite of Confirmation. Here will the young and joyous stand at the altar and plight to each other their lifelong affection and service. Here will young and old congregate about the holy table and partake together of the life-giving viands of the Eucharistic Feast. Along this aisle will the feet of mourners tread, and the impressive and hopeful annunciation, ‘I am the Resurrection and the Life,’ shall precede the coffined dead, as one after another is carried to his last resting-place."  

The order of Naucratius

Are you looking for ways to give back to the community at large? If so, The Order of Naucratius has an opportunity for you!! August 4-6th we are looking for volunteers to help process fish caught in the Big Red Fishing Tournament in Holland. Do you need experience? NOPE! Do you need to be there every day? NOPE!

If you are interested or want more information contact Zack Shippell either in person, through text or phone call 269-330-3093, email zshippell@gmail.com, or social media, but please NO morse code!
