Recovering Catholics (and from other religions)
Many people have been wounded by their previous experiences in organized religion or from the way religion was practiced (and used) in their childhood family culture. Because WNY is predominantly Roman Catholic we often hear people describe themselves as “Recovering Catholics” but many Protestants have experienced similar problems and dysfunctions, and have stayed away from Church as a result. Our RC Group is a three session “rolling” seminar scheduled whenever at least eight people have signed up. If you are interested in forming a seminar for RCs then contact Cam at the church office and let him know.
Parents and Toddlers
If you have children ages 4 and under, this group is for you. Parents and Toddlers gather a few times throughout the year to have fun and share views and ideas about this stage in life. Together this group has made bread, discussed immunizations, made cookies, discussed Santa Claus, and had a lot of laughter. This group is facilitated by Holly Maloney and the activities are mutually agreed upon. Check out our Calendar to see details about the latest gathering!
Intercessory prayers are prayers that are asked on behalf of others. There is a group here at Trinity that meets weekly to pray for the specific requests of the community. They gather on Thursdays at 3pm here at Trinity. They spend an hour reading the requests and offering prayers on behalf of those who desire it. This is an open group who welcomes those who may be called to this ministry. All information shared in this group is strictly confidential.
If you wish to submit a confidential prayer request, please feel free to do so by filling out a Prayer Request Form that can be found in the hallway between the Main Sanctuary and the Chapel.
Further information may be obtained by contacting Holly Maloney at the church office.
Children & Youth @Trinity
Children and Youth Programs are listed below and focus on spiritual growth, community building and social justice. Children of all ages are welcome in worship and/or in programming and are an integral part of the community. Participation in any of Trinity’s programs for children and youth is left to the discretion of the parents and the interest of the child. All programming is under the supervision of Holly Maloney, Assistant to the Rector and in consultation with our Rector, Cam Miller. If your choice is to keep your children with you in church, please know that the noise of children in worship is part of the noise of a joyous community life. If you choose to have them join any aspect of programming they will be welcomed and included.
Our mission is to nurture children’s innate knowledge of God as we explore the stories of our ancestors together. We hope to fuel the fires of awe and wonder for all of God’s creation so that they can participate in naming and healing the wounds of injustice.
Infants – 3yrs Nursery time is during the 10:30am worship. Mary Lou cares for the youngest children with the help a teen from the community. We provide a safe, nurturing environment and a pager system for parent communication so you can worship worry free.
Pre-K & Elementary Creator Quest is the children’s formation program offered during the 10:30am worship. The children gather under the tent between 10:15 & 10:30, then mark the beginning of worship with a parade of streamers and doves. From there they go off to their classes:

The children return in time for communion.
