On November 14, 2020, Holy Trinity Parish formally celebrated 30 years of ministry in Hillsdale. Our first worship service was held in Advent of 1989, and the congregation was officially constituted with the Holy Trinity as its patron at our first Annual Meeting in January of 1990. God has been very faithful to us these past three decades, and we gave thanks to him for a noble past and optimistic future. Braving the peculiar conditions imposed by a global pandemic, the parish decided to gather together, with appropriate precautions in place, over a meal to celebrate. Toward the end of the evening, there were four separate presentations. The audio for each is below their respective headings below.
"Where We've Been" by founding Senior Warden Bob Blackstock (with a letter of greetings from founding Rector Fr. Duane Beauchamp)
"Where We Are" by current Rector Adam Rick (read by associate minister Tim Taylor, as Fr. Adam and his wife were in Covid quarantine at the time of the event)
"Where We're Going" by current Senior Warden Blake McAllister
Concluding Remarks and Benediction by our Bishop, Julian Dobbs
